If you see that your personal files are encrypted and they have a lengthy extension next to the original one (e.g. .jpg or .doc) now, it means that you are dealing with firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware, which is known to be a nasty computer infection. Researchers working at 411-spyware.com have quickly found out that email@example.com Ransomware is another threat based on the CrySIS Ransomware engine. As a consequence, it acts like Saraswati Ransomware, Age_empires@india.com Ransomware and Savepanda@india.com Ransomware, i.e. it enters computers without permission and then encrypts files it finds stored on the system. It means that you will no longer be able to open them or use them. It is very likely that the same will happen to third-party applications that are installed on your computer. It is impossible to decrypt files free of charge at the moment, but you should remove firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware right now without paying money to make sure that this infection does not encrypt new files. If you erase it, you will be sure that it no longer connects to the Internet without permission and thus can help other malicious applications to enter your PC as well.
Cyber criminals seek to get easy money from users, so they have created email@example.com Ransomware to achieve this purpose. This infection starts acting the second it finds a way to enter the computer – it finds files and then locks them using the RSA-2048 encryption key. To explain what has happened to all the files and what users can do about that, firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware changes Desktop background by setting the picture How to decrypt your files.jpg. Also, you will find the How to decrypt your files.txt file on Desktop as well. Unfortunately, both files do not provide much information. For example, the .txt file has the only line “DECRYPT FILES EMAIL email@example.com”, whereas the image that is put on Desktop contains only the following text:
Your data is encrypted!!!
To return the file to an email email firstname.lastname@example.org
It might be hard to understand the message left for users, but it is clear that they have to write an email to email@example.com to get further instructions on how to decrypt personal files. If you do so, you will get an answer saying that you have to transfer money for the decryption key. The exact amount of money cyber criminals ask users to pay is unknown, but we can assure you that it will not be cheap to gain access to your files. Some users decide to give cyber criminals what they want, but we do not think that it is a very good idea to do that because there are no guarantees that cyber criminals will really unlock files for you. What you can do to gain access to your files if you are not going to pay money cyber criminals require is to restore them from a backup. If you do not have copies of your important files, you should try to use the free file recovery tool. It might help you to recover some of your files.
firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware, of course, enters computers without permission. The most common ransomware infiltration technique is spam emails, so there is basically no doubt that you have encountered this infection because you have opened a spam email recently. Cyber criminals try to present these spam emails as legitimate mail, which explains why ransomware infections are so prevalent these days. Never open spam emails again if you do not want to become the victim of the ransomware infection once again. In addition, you need to install security software ASAP and keep it always enabled.
It will not be easy to remove email@example.com Ransomware because this infection puts its executable file to several directories.
