Category: Trojans Ransomware belongs to the Scarab Ransomware family as it shares many similarities with other malicious applications associated with it, e.g., Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware. Same as its other clones the malware enciphers user’s data with a secure encryption algorithm to make it unusable. It is done to try to extort money from the victims who would be willing to pay for decryption tools. Of course, our security specialists advise not to trust the hackers responsible for Ransomware as there are no reassurances they will fulfill their promises. Meaning, you could end up being scammed, and if it is not something you would like to risk experiencing, we highly recommend not to put up with any demands. Should you decide not to pay the ransom, we advise erasing the malicious application with the instructions located below. Also, you can learn more about it by reading our full report.

At first, we would like to explain how Ransomware might settle in. Our specialists report it could happen with the help of Spam emails or other unreliable data, victims may obtain while browsing, or it might slip in by exploiting the system’s vulnerabilities, e.g., unsecured RDP connections. Thus, users who do not want to let such malware infect their computer should be extra cautious whenever downloading or receiving material from unreliable sources. It is best to scan the file you suspect could be dangerous with a reliable security tool than rush opening it and then infect your device accidentally.

Threats like Ransomware can encrypt and so ruin all of the victim’s files shortly after its launch. The worst part is, in this case, the user might be unable to stop it even if he realizes he just released a malicious application. Apparently, the threat disables Task Manager and Registry Editor. The software remains to be disabled until the malware finishes enciphering targeted data, e.g., photos, documents, videos, and so on. As you see to stop Ransomware you would need to kill its process via Task Manager, so the only hope remains you can interrupt the process by shutting down the computer. In case the victim does not realize what has happened, the malicious application should silently encrypt his private data. Later all of the affected files can be recognized from changed title and extension. For example, in our case, files on the computer turned into something similar to this q5Rjp5eMnl85QwGlpb8Prr.HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED

The next Ransomware’s step is to create ransom notes that would carry its creators’ message. It should claim all of the files were encrypted with the RSA-2048 encryption algorithm and so can be restored only with a unique decryption key. Also, the hackers may say they have it on their server, and the victim can buy it if he contacts them via The ransom note does not say what the price would be, but we do not recommend paying it in any case. You cannot know if the hackers will bother sending the needed decryption tool or if they will not decide to extort more money from you.

If you do not want to pay for a decryption key you might not get, we would advise deleting Ransomware. Users who wish to get rid of the malware have two options. First is to find data created by the malware and erase it manually. The instructions you can locate below the text should help you with this task. The second option might be easier, especially to inexperienced users, as it is removal with a chosen antimalware tool. All you have to do is select a reliable security tool and perform a full system scan.
