A red window opened on the screen claiming "Your Files Have Been Encrypted by the Sneaky Jew" means only one thing - Jewsomware Ransomware has infiltrated your computer successfully. It has been discovered by specialists at the beginning of July 2018, so it has not become prevalent yet; however, the situation might change soon, so we highly recommend that you do not keep your system unprotected. Specialists suspect that Jewsomware Ransomware is still in development since it does not lock or delete any files, but it is only a question of time when it gets an update and starts working properly. Like many other ransomware infections, this threat wants users' money, but you should not transfer a cent to the author of this malicious application even if you find your files encrypted. No matter what kind of threat you encounter, you must delete it from your system right away because you cannot know what else it can do. You are quite lucky if you have encountered Jewsomware Ransomware - you will delete this infection by erasing the malicious file you have launched since it does not drop any malicious components, does not create new entries in the system registry, and, finally, does not block system utilities. The only thing you will have to do before you delete its launcher is killing its process using Task Manager to close the window opened by it on Desktop.
Once the malicious file that opens Jewsomware Ransomware is launched, it opens a fake Windows 10 update window. Once cyber criminals fix it, it should encrypt files at that time. The ransomware infection also opens a red window for users, as has been mentioned. It contains a message and two timers counting down. We call the message this window contains a ransom note. It tells users that they can unlock their files only by sending 600 EUR in Bitcoin to the indicated Wallet. Originally, Jewsomware Ransomware demands 300 EUR, but the size of the ransom increases after a minute. You should not send money to cyber criminals even if you can afford the decryptor. Remember, there is a huge possibility that none of your files have been encrypted. Your personal files should not be deleted too if you remove the ransomware infection right away. It is, actually, never a good idea to transfer money to crooks because they usually do not give anything to users. In this case, we cannot guarantee that you will get the promised decryption tool even if you send the money. If you have found your files encrypted but do not want to transfer a ransom, you can restore them from a backup after the full Jewsomware Ransomware removal.
We have not found anything new regarding the Jewsomware Ransomware distribution. It has turned out that it is also mainly distributed as an attachment in spam emails. Be careful, some emails promoting malicious software might look legitimate. Additionally, cyber criminals might drop Jewsomware Ransomware on your computer if you use weak RDP credentials since they are constantly searching for weakly-protected RDP connections. It is not always a piece of cake to prevent malicious software from entering the system, but if you keep a security tool installed on your computer, it will not be something impossible. Of course, you cannot act carelessly too. In other words, you cannot open various spam emails and stay safe. Also, you should download software from reliable sources only if you do not want to download malware on your computer. Last but not least, every user who surfs the Internet on a daily basis must have a security tool installed on the system to protect the computer against sneaky malware.
If Jewsomware Ransomware has managed to enter your computer, it must be deleted ASAP so that it could not lock/delete files or cause you more problems. We said this at the beginning of this article and we are going to say this again - you can delete this infection by simply removing the malicious file you have launched recently. If it happens that you cannot find it anywhere, it would be best to scan the system with an antimalware scanner. Keep in mind that not all scanners claiming to be trustworthy software are 100% reliable.
