The first thing about InducVirus Ransomware we would like to discuss is its possible distribution channels. We do not know how it is spread for sure, but based on our experience with ransomware applications, we suspect it could travel with malicious email attachments, software installers, etc. In many cases, users receive such material from untrustworthy sources, such as Spam emails, torrent or other P2P file-sharing web pages, and so on. For this reason, we always recommend being cautious when surfing the Internet. For instance, if you suspect your downloaded or received file could be harmful, you should not open such content before you scan it with a reliable antimalware tool. Besides, to protect your data from ransomware applications, you should do regular backups.
If InducVirus Ransomware enters the system, the malware ought to encrypt data located on %USERPROFILE%. Fortunately, files available on other directories should not be affected. In any case, you can easily separate encrypted files from their second extension called .FilGZmsp. Data that has it should be unrecognizable. The process can be reversed with a decryptor that only the malware’s developers have. While they may promise to send it for a particular price, we warn you not to trust them blindly. There are always cases when users get scammed by hackers. Plus, the creators of InducVirus Ransomware are very rude to their victims, which makes us doubt they care about the encrypted files. As you see, once the threat encrypts targeted data, it should open a warning with two choices. One of it was most likely meant to insult victims who do not put up with the hackers’ demands. Besides, if the user clicks it, he may receive a few more warnings with insulting phrases.
To be more precise, the choice we are talking about is called “Im fucking faggot! PLEASE DELETE MY SYSTEM!” We highly advise not to click it as besides showing more warnings it gives InducVirus Ransomware a signal to damage the computer’s MBR, and as explained earlier, it could make the system inoperable. Nonetheless, we do not recommend contacting the hackers and paying a ransom if they ask for it, either. If you do not want to risk getting tricked, you should eliminate the malicious application. Experienced users could do so by following the instructions located below. Of course, an easier way to get rid of InducVirus Ransomware would be to perform a full system scan with a reliable antimalware tool of your preferences.
