One wrong move and the malicious NoobCrypt Ransomware encrypts your personal files. This wrong move is opening the corrupted spam email attachment, and this is why you should NEVER open suspicious emails sent to you by unfamiliar senders. Even if the email address seems to be similar to the ones of authentic companies, you cannot make any mistakes. If you have not expected an invoice from a post office, your bank, or any other company, why would you open it? The same goes with pictures, videos, or documents from unknown senders. The worst part is that malicious emails could be sent from your friends’ accounts as well if they get hijacked, in which case, you are more likely to get scammed. Our research team informs that the malicious launcher of the ransomware is concealed using the PDF icon. If you open this file, all of your personal files, including photos and word files, will be encrypted. Should you delete NoobCrypt Ransomware to decrypt your files? Well, things are a little more complicated than that.
When NoobCrypt Ransomware encrypts your files, it sends the unique decryption key to a remote server, which means that even if you remove this ransomware, your files will remain locked. Although it is unlikely that you will be able to access your files at all due to the screen-locking image, the files encrypted by this threat will not open normally. For example, a simple photo might open as a blank image via the Windows Photo Viewer. Besides paralyzing your screen, this infection also disables access to Registry Editor and Task Manager. If you decide to remove NoobCrypt Ransomware from your operating system manually, you will need these tools. Of course, most users think only about liberating their files, and the removal of the threat does not come into the equation. Although many users nowadays use file backup systems (e.g., cloud storage or external drives) – in which case, the encryption of the files is not that intimidating – most are still careless about this. If your files are not backed up, you might think that you need to pay the ransom requested via the screen-locking image.
The purpose of the intimidating NoobCrypt Ransomware notification is to push you into paying the ransom as quickly as possible. Just like Wildfire Ransomware and many other ransomware infections, this threat sets a timeframe in which you need to pay the ransom, which is 299 USD. The intimidating warning suggests that you have 48 hours to make the payment, but it also warns that files will be continuously removed every 2 hours, which means that the victims of this ransomware are most likely to take action within the first hours. Our researchers inform that this malicious ransomware has already made a huge profit for cyber criminals, and they are not likely to stop. In fact, the developer of this infection could be responsible for a ton of other infamous infections of the same kind. Of course, if they were, it is unlikely that they would have allowed for a hard-coded decryption key to be revealed. "ZdZ8EcvP95ki6NWR2j" is this key, and you can enter it into the Unlock box to decrypt your files for free. Note that this error is associated with the current version of the NoobCrypt Ransomware, and later versions might be unbeatable.
Once you unlock your personal files – which you can do using the aforementioned key – you need to remove NoobCrypt Ransomware from your operating system. By rebooting your operating system in Safe Mode with Networking, you will be able to use Task Manager and Registry Editor tools to eliminate the ransomware manually. You could also employ automated malware detection and removal software. In fact, it is crucial that you employ this software because other threats might be active on your operating system. What is more, you need protection against malware in the future. Reliable anti-malware software – if kept updated – will ensure that your PC is free from malware at all times.
