Jordan Ransomware gives the impression of malware that means business, but the truth is that is can barely do anything at all. Nevertheless, you should remove it because it will continue nagging you indefinitely if you make the decision to leave it as it is. Now, allegedly, this ransomware was created with the intention of encrypting files of the victim’s computer. Fortunately, it does not do that, so are in the clear. However, if you buy into its claim that your files will be encrypted and deleted if you do not pay the ransom, then if will experience a financial loss that could have been avoided. For more information, please read this whole article.
Even though this ransomware is not distributed widely and there have been very few reported infections, we think it is necessary to talk about its distribution. We have received unconfirmed information that this particular ransomware is currently being distributed via email spam send from a dedicated email server that was set up by the developers of this ransomware. The emails feature this program in a file archive that you need to open manually for this ransomware to run. This file archive can be a self-extracting file, so it may drop this ransomware’s executable once you open it. Apart from this particular method of distribution, we think that it is entirely possible for it to be bundled with pirated software. It could be embedded in a keygen executable that will drop it in a hidden location when you run the keygen.
Once on your computer, Jordan Ransomware will run automatically and render its ransom note. The note states that your files were encrypted because you were watching pornography. However, this note is meant to scare you and compel you to make rash decisions. The developer wants you to pay 10.000 SC (Scammer Coins) to decrypt your files. The note features an address to which you are expected to send the coins. However, you will notice that your files have not been actually encrypted because, if they were, then you would not be able to access them.
Nevertheless, the ransom note also states that if you try to delete it, then it will DDoS your Internet which is highly unlikely because we were able to install, test, and remove this ransomware without any trouble whatsoever. Therefore, we conclude that this malicious application is all show and no go. Finally, we think that this program is more of a joke than a serious attempt at scamming unwary users and getting their money. This ransomware has a button “Click me for Jordan” that opens pictures of a young man. Those pictures serve no purpose other than to make fun of the person in them. Therefore, there is no reason to take Jordan Ransomware and its threats seriously, and we suggest getting rid of it at your earliest convenience.
In conclusion, Jordan Ransomware is a fake ransomware-type malware and will not perform the actions its ransom note claims to perform. As mentioned, it is more of a joke than a real ransomware, but if you decide to pay the ransom, then you will lose money. Therefore, we urge you to refrain from paying the ransom and invite you to remove it using the guide featured below. The guide involves using SpyHunter’s free scanning feature to locate the executable of this ransomware because it can be placed anywhere on your PC.
