If you have ever heard about Ukash ransomware applications then you will know exactly what to expect of Nymaim. Nymaim is a ransomware application that is distributed by Nymaim Trojan. It was first discovered in January 2014 and this infection can affect all the main types of Windows operating systems. When you get infected with Nymaim Trojan, it can contact a remote host at svictrorymedia.ru and download more malware onto your computer. The malware in question is obviously Nymaim ransomware application.
According to our security experts, Nymaim is very similar Ukash and other ransomware programs we have encountered before. The main difference lies in the infection. This ransomware may add RunOnce keys into the registry, which is something that other ransomware applications from Ukash family usually do not do. Nymaim may also create a lot of various files with different names and different extensions. Thus, in general Nymaim is not much different from other ransomware applications. It is just that it has a lot more files and if some of them are left out during malware removal, the infection can duplicate and multiply again.
As far as the ransomware’s behavior is concerned, it should not be too much of a surprise. Once the program enters your computer, it locks down the system and asks for a ransom fee. Due to the fact that this malicious campaign is customized according to your approximate location, it may seem that you are being displayed a notification from a law enforcement agency (like FBI). This notification is displayed in order to convince you that you have committed something extremely wrong, and thus you need to pay the fine in order to avoid criminal trial.
Nymaim expects you to pay up to $300 to avoid criminal charges and unlock your computer, but it is more than obvious that by transferring the money you will not solve anything. This ransomware application has been created to swindle you out of your money, so it is clear that we cannot give our money away to Nymaim, because no good can come of it.
To terminate this infection you need to unlock your computer. We provide instructions on how to bypass Nymaim’s notification and get your desktop back. However, we want to emphasize once again that it is important to delete all the Nymaim’s files at once; otherwise the infection can be regenerated. Therefore, invest in reliable antimalware tool that will help you remove Nymaim and all of its files for good.
