No one wants to get infected with ransomware. It is very often that users have to start building their libraries from scratch when they encounter the likes of Nesa Ransomware. However, it is always possible to remove ransomware infections, and there are often ways to restore the affected files so, there is no need to panic. Please scroll down to the bottom of this description for the manual removal instructions. Do not hesitate to address a professional if you have more questions on the matter, and don’t forget that you should definitely invest in a file backup.
So, what do we know about Nesa Ransomware? The truth is that this infection is nothing new. It is another version of the STOP Ransomware program, and we have already talked about multiple infections from this family. It is very likely that Nesa Ransomware is similar to all of its predecessors, although it is unfortunate that we cannot used the previously released decryption keys to restore the files affected by Nesa Ransomware. According to our research team, this program currently cannot be decrypted.
Thus, your best bet at restoring your files is a file backup. What is that? It is essentially copies of your files that you keep someplace else. Sometimes users prefer maintaining their backup on an external hard drive. Sometimes they employ a cloud drive, where they upload their files automatically (when the hard drive is synced with the cloud drive). Whichever you choose, it is always a good idea to have another storage for your files, because you know what they say: it’s not a good idea to keep all of your eggs in one basket. The likes of Nesa Ransomware might as well break them.
Aside from keeping a file backup, you should also learn more about ransomware distribution. Normally, Nesa Ransomware and other similar programs travel via spam email attachments and corrupted RDP connections. It means that users download and launch the files that install malware willingly. They are simply not aware of the potential dangers, and thus they can be easily tricked. BE AWARE that emails with urgent message and attached files could bring malware! To be absolutely sure, you can always scan the attached file with the SpyHunter free scanner. If the attached file is malicious, you will be notified immediately, and you won’t have to deal with ransomware infection consequences.
But. What if Nesa Ransomware still manages to enter the target system? Well, then it does whatever any other ransomware program is capable of doing: it encrypts files. Every single affected file receives the “.nesa” extension, so it is rather easy to see that you have a lot of encrypted files after that.
Also, when the encryption is complete, Nesa Ransomware drops a ransom note in the TXT format. The ransom note says the following:
Don’t worry, you can return all your files!
All your files like photos, databases, documents and other important are encrypted with strongest encryption and unique key.
The only method of recovering files is to purchase decrypt tool and unique key for you.
We have already discussed the way you can restore your files above, and we would like to emphasize that you should NEVER purchase the decryption key from these criminals because it would hardly solve anything. You would only encourage the criminals to continue creating and spreading more malicious programs.
Remove Nesa Ransomware today, and then learn more about ransomware to protect your computer and your data from similar intruders. Please note that a security tool of your choice is a good way to safeguard your system, but a lot of it depends on your own actions, too.
