Mifr Ransomware is an obscure ransomware infection that follows the most common ransomware distribution and infection patterns. This program successfully encrypts target files and then bullies the affected users into paying the ransom fee. Security experts recommend removing Mifr Ransomware from the affected system immediately, as dealing with these criminals might be a rather shady business. Also, if you have a file backup, you should be able to retrieve your files almost immediately. If not, do not hesitate to address a professional for other file recovery options. No matter what you do, do not succumb to the criminal demands.
If you’re wondering how come you’re infected with this program, you must have opened some file you received from an unknown sender, and that file must’ve been the ransomware installer file. How come we are so careless about unfamiliar files we receive? Well, that mostly boils down to habits and the faulty impression that it “won’t happen to me.” Even if you think that you have no valuable documents that could be held hostage, that doesn’t matter to ransomware distributors. A malicious infection could be just a click away, and if you don’t learn how to differentiate between legitimate and fake emails, you might as well be fighting programs like Mifr Ransomware for years.
So, we know by now that it is possible to avoid Mifr Ransomware if we are attentive and careful. If you receive a message from someone you don’t know and that message sounds extremely urgent, be sure to double-check that. Even if it looks like a shipping invoice or some financial document, you have to be sure that the document is legitimate before opening it. The best way to check it is by scanning the file with a security tool of your choice. If the scanner doesn’t find anything suspicious about the file, you can open it.
Unfortunately, a lot of users are too hasty to take these precautions. They are also used to opening such files every single day (especially if they receive them because of the work they do). So, Mifr Ransomware and other similar infections manage to trick users into launching the installer files, and just a few moments later, the infection settles down in the target system.
Once Mifr Ransomware is up and running, it scans the system and locates all the types of files it can encrypt. Our research suggests that this infection can encrypt all sorts of picture and document formats, so it is very likely that most of your frequently used documents will end up getting locked by this infection.
Just like most of the other ransomware programs, Mifr Ransomware also displays a ransom note once the encryption is complete. It also opens the ransom note file automatically, so you could read it as soon as possible:
!!! Your Files Has Been Encrypted !!!
* your files has been locked with highest secure cryptography algorithm *
* there is no way to decrypt your files without paying and buying Decryption tool *
* but after 48 hour decryption price will be double *
Above is an extract from the said ransom note, and as you can see, this infection tries to come strong and push you into paying the ransom. It doesn’t say how much you are supposed to pay, it just says that you have to contact those criminals as soon as possible.
Of course, you should never do that. Remove Mifr Ransomware right now following the guidelines below. You should also scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner. There might be more malicious or potentially unwanted programs on-board, so you have to remove them all, too.
