KillDisk-Dimens Ransomware is a vicious computer infection that might both ruin files on the device and crash the system. As a result, the user should be unable to access his data or even launch the computer. What may seem to be strange is the malicious application does not show any ransom notes through which its creators would demand a ransom. As our specialists explain, this malware is a bit different from most of the ransomware programs. Apparently, it could be used by hackers who may seek to steal valuable information from the user and damage the system once the infected computer is no longer needed. It is doubtful a lot of users could encounter it. Nevertheless, if you are interested in KillDisk-Dimens Ransomware, we encourage you to read the rest of our article and review the deletion instructions added at the end of it.

The most likely way the malware might infect a device is through harmful email attachments. For example, the hackers could send spam emails containing a malicious file that looks like a simple Microsoft Word, Excel or any other document. Our researchers say that if the user has a reputable security tool, it should stop KillDisk-Dimens Ransomware before it gets a chance to do any damage. As you see, it is not an entirely new threat, and tools which recognize its earlier variant (KillDisk Ransomware) should be able to identify it too. Unfortunately, if the device is unprotected the threat might infect the system at once and create files in C:\Windows. Naturally, to stay away from such malicious applications users should watch out for suspicious email attachments and employ a reliable security tool.

Moreover, when the malware enters the system, it should check all data located on the computer; or to be more accurate, the files that are not on Program Files, System Volume Information, Windows, Users, and other similar directories belonging to the system. The malicious application does not encrypt the files it finds, but once the threat makes the system crash it ruins the data it locates; in a way, they can only be recovered with recovery software. To crash the system KillDisk-Dimens Ransomware should kill specific system processes, for example, csrss.exe, winlogon.exe, wininit.exe, and so on. Our specialists say such actions should make the system reload and after it does the user might be unable to boot the existing operating system. In other words, to reach the files available on the device the user should attach storage with an operating system he could load.

The first thing we would recommend doing once you insert a disk or attach a flash drive with an operating system is installing a recovery tool of your choice to restore the ruined files. The next step should be to move such data somewhere safe, for example, to a removable hard drive. Then the user could try to erase KillDisk-Dimens Ransomware manually while following the instructions added at the end of this text or with a reliable security tool of his choice. Lastly, we would recommend reinstalling the operating system since even with the malware gone the user might still be unable to load it.
