Sometimes it is hard to tell whether a malicious program we are dealing with is extremely dangerous or not. However, the fact that even the smallest infections can paralyze your system remains. Thus, if you happen to encounter Project57 Ransomware, you will do yourself a favor by removing this infection as soon as possible. Of course, it may not be possible to restore the files affected by this ransomware program, but your main objective is to keep your system clean and prevent similar infections from entering your computer. Hence, when you remove Project57 Ransomware, you should scan your computer with a licensed antispyware tool.

Our research team says that it is not clear whether this program is a very serious infection or not. The point is that when a ransomware program enters a target system and encrypts user’s files, it usually displays a ransom note that indicates how much the user has to pay in order to retrieve their files. Granted, Project57 Ransomware also displays a ransom note, but the note doesn’t indicate the exact ransom amount. It says that you have to contact the people behind this intruder to find out how much you have to pay. Needless to say, you should never do anything of the kind.

We are sure that this program arrives via spam email message. Spam emails carry attachments that look like regular MS Office files or PDF files. Users think that those are important files they have to open no matter what. Sometimes users are also too used to opening such files on a regular basis, and they do not consider the possibility of encountering malware infections through such files. In fact, perhaps one of the biggest reasons Project57 Ransomware and other similar programs manage to infect users is that no one believes that the threat is real.

Individual users and even businesses do not think that they could be targeted by cyber criminals, but that is a very irresponsible thought. Anyone can become a target as long as they have any kind of information stored in their devices, and Project57 Ransomware doesn’t really care whether your information is important or not. As long as it can make a financial profit, it will extort anything.

The good news is that no point of execution is created when this program enters your computer. It means that Project57 Ransomware does not drop any additional files, only the ones it needs to run the encryption. Thus, you can remove the program by following the instructions below.

As for your files, it shouldn’t be much of a problem is you have copies of your files saved on an external hard drive. You might also have a lot of files on a cloud drive or your mobile device. Don’t hesitate to look around! We often save the same file several times on different devices without even realizing it.

Of course, sometimes there is no hope, and you have to start anew. But if you start building your file library from scratch, be sure to be extra careful the next time you open an email from an unfamiliar sender. Protect yourself and your system from the likes of Project57 Ransomware.
