Malware can invade systems and create a mess in a blink of an eye. MVP Ransomware is one malicious infection that fits this description. It uses stealthy distribution techniques (e.g., misleading spam emails with corrupted attachments) to slither in, and then it silently encrypts files so that you could be blackmailed. The infection encrypts files in the hopes of making you pay money for a decryptor that might not even exist. What if it does? Well, there are no guarantees that cyber criminals would give it to you even if you asked nicely or paid some good money to obtain it. Our experience with file-encrypting ransomware shows that victims almost never get what they expect. Are you willing to take the risk and put your savings on the line for nothing? Let that be your choice because we cannot recommend following the demands of cyber criminals. We can, however, show you how to delete MVP Ransomware, as well as how to protect your operating system and your personal files in the future against malware and cyber attackers.
There are thousands of file encryptors that can invade your operating system. In fact, MVP Ransomware itself comes from a faction of such well-known threats as Scarab-Good Ransomware, Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware, and Scarab-Bomber Ransomware. The infection has most in common with the latter because both were created to target Russian-speaking users. If it finds its way into your Windows operating system, it can quickly encrypt many of your personal files. The infection also renames them, which can make it impossible to track which files were encrypted. Besides the ridiculous random names, a unique “.mvp” extension is another thing that can help you identify corrupted files. Unfortunately, once they are encrypted, restoring them manually is not possible. You need a file decryptor that matches the encryption key, and only cyber criminals who created it can provide you with it. Would they? It is highly unlikely that they would, but that does not stop them from making aggressive demands. These are introduced to all victims via a file named “Как расшифровать файлы.TXT,” copies of which are created everywhere along with the corrupted files.
Although you will need to remove MVP Ransomware ransom note at some point, it is safe to open this file. It is the message that you need to be most cautious about because it was created to make you pay for file decryption services. The message inside the TXT file introduces you to firstname.lastname@example.org, an email address that you can use to communicate with cyber criminals. You don’t need to contact them, but if you believe the message, that is your only option. Also, you are rushed to establish communication, as it is stated that the price would go up and that personal files would be deleted every 24 hours for 3 days. If you emailed the creator of MVP Ransomware, they should provide you with more information on how to pay for a decryptor, but remember that this tool might not exist or that cyber criminals might not give it to you. This is why you must think carefully before you make any moves. Of course, our research team recommends that you pay no attention to the ransom demands and that you remove MVP Ransomware as soon as possible.
Your operating system lacks reliable protection. If that were not the case, you would not be dealing with the removal of MVP Ransomware right now. Other threats could exist too. Because you need to delete the malicious ransomware – and, possibly, other threats too – as well as protect your operating system, we strongly suggest employing anti-malware software to ensure full-time protection and complete removal of malware. If you are interested in eliminating the infection manually, you can refer to the guide below, but keep in mind that the process can be complicated and confusing, especially if you are inexperienced. Of course, regardless of how you eliminate the infection, your files cannot be restored. This exactly why everyone should back up their files using trustworthy cloud and/or physical drives. Are your files backed up? If they are, you still have them even if the original files were corrupted. Of course, you should restore files from backup only after you delete MVP Ransomware.
