If you receive an email with an application for a job, you need to remember Ordinypt Wiper, a malicious and clandestine Trojan that uses bogus CV and application documents to trick unsuspecting Windows users into executing it on their systems. One version of the misleading phishing email was created for the German-speaking users, and it used the fake identity of someone named “Eva Richter” to spread the Trojan. If fictitious job applications are the main mode of transportation of this infection, it is obvious that the attackers are targeting companies and organizations. That being said, it is possible that the phishing email could be modified to target users in different countries and to target them using different methods. Ultimately, it is possible that anyone could become a victim of this infection, and that is why it is important to talk about it. If you continue reading, you will learn how to delete Ordinypt Wiper and, hopefully, how to keep your operating system safe so that you would not need to remove malware again.
Using the Eva Richter phishing scam, the attackers behind Ordinypt Wiper exposed Windows users to two files via email, including "Eva Richter Bewerbungsfoto.jpg" and "Eva Richter Bewerbung und Lebenslauf.zip." The latter file concealed "Eva Richter Bewerbung und Lebenslauf.pdf.exe," which launched the malicious infection. As you now know, it is possible that the scam could be modified, and different names, motives, and files could be used, which is why you must not lower your guard at any point. Without a doubt, if you work in an HR team at your company, you might be receiving job applications via email every single day, but that does not mean that you cannot detect scams and malware. It is most important that you keep your operating system guarded reliably, so that even if you are tricked into opening a malicious spam email attachment, the file is blocked or removed in time. If safeguards do not exist and if you are careless with the messages you receive, Ordinypt Wiper might slither in before you know it, and, unfortunately, it can do great damage.
When Ordinypt Wiper slithers in, it immediately attaches a random ".[random]" extension to files on your computer. It also creates a new file, named "[random]_how_to_decrypt.txt." You have to be extremely careful about how you handle the message inside this file. According to it, the files with the ransom extension have been encrypted, and now you need to download the anonymous Tor Browser and visit a suspicious website. If you did that, you would be instructed to pay a ransom of 1,500 USD in Bitcoin to retrieve a decryption tool. Basically, it operates just like firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware, Nuksus Ransomware, MGS Ransomware, and all other infamous file-encryptors. Well, the reality is that the files on your computer were not encrypted. They were wiped; hence the name of the infection. That means that the files were destroyed and cannot be recovered in any way. If you think you can restore files from backup, think again, because Ordinypt Wiper deletes shadow volume copies. Obviously, if you use cloud storage or external drives to backup files, you have nothing to worry about, besides the removal of the threat.
If you work for a company, and Ordinypt Wiper slithered in, you need to warn appropriate teams right away. They will handle the security of your operating system and network; however, if you are an individual who faced the wiper, you need to figure out how to secure your system yourself. Have you thought about installing a legitimate anti-malware tool? You definitely should think about it if you want to have Ordinypt Wiper removed and your system’s protection reinstated automatically. Alternatively, you will need to delete the threat manually, and we cannot help you much with that because the launcher could have any name, and its location could be random too. Needless to say, if you can locate the infection, eliminate it immediately! But do not forget that your system remains vulnerable and that you need to take care of it as soon as possible.
