Your personal files are in real trouble if Qinynore Ransomware has encrypted them. It should not be hard for you to figure out what has happened to your files because when they are encrypted, a unique extension (“.anonymous”) is added to their names. This is a marker that can help you answer the question of WHAT invaded your operating system, but that is not the only thing that can help. The ransom notes created by the infection mention the name of the threat too. Overall, regardless of how you learn what has invaded your operating system and infected your personal files, you need to be careful about what you do with the information you’ve got. The ransom note is meant to convince you that you need to pay a ransom to have your files restored, but you need to be smarter than to believe criminals. The promises of cyber attackers cannot be taken seriously! All in all, whatever you choose to do, you need to delete Qinynore Ransomware in the end, and our removal tips will help you with that.
Have you recently downloaded files (e.g., illegal keygen for a program) or opened strange spam email attachments that did not really open anything? If you have, the chances are you know exactly how the malicious Qinynore Ransomware got in. Hopefully, you can uncover and remove malware right away. If you do not do this, your files are encrypted immediately. All files with .txt, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, .odt, .jpg, .png, .csv, .sql, .mdb, .sln, .php, .asp, .aspx, .html, .xml, .psd, .mp3, .dwg, .pdf, .mid, .flv, .vdi, .rtf, .backup, .bak, .sql, .ms11, .gif, .jar, .bat, .zip, .rar, .vbs, .jpeg, .bmp, .lnk, .exe, .dll, and .mui extensions are encrypted by the malicious infection. According to our experts, the infection can even encrypt files in %PROGRAMFILES% and %PROGRAMFILES(x86)% directories, and that means that some of the installed applications could stop working due to encryption too. Of course, such files can usually be reinstalled, whereas your personal files might be impossible to replace. In fact, you can replace the corrupted files only with backups, and if these do not exist, you are screwed. Do you have backups? Check and use them only after you remove Qinynore Ransomware!
According to our research team, Qinynore Ransomware was created using a code that is considered to be a spin-off to the infamous Hidden Tear. Suri Ransomware is one of the latest infections to come from this faction of malware. According to the messages inside YOU_MUST_READ_ME.rtf (created on the Desktop) and lol.jpg (represented as a Desktop wallpaper) files, files are encrypted and can be recovered only if a ransom of $400 is paid in Bitcoins. At the time of research, victims of the infection were instructed to pay the ransom to “940927654672984,”but this is not a legitimate Bitcoin Address. This suggests that Qinynore Ransomware is still in development. Once the infection is fully developed, it should reveal the real Bitcoin Address used by the creator of the infection. Should you pay the ransom to recover your files if that was an option? You certainly should not because you do not want to give schemers your money and your files. But they can recover your files, can’t they? Even if they can (in theory), it is unlikely that they would.
You need to remove all malicious threats from your operating system. There is no question about that. Unfortunately, even if you realize this, you might feel stuck because of the situation with your encrypted files. The thing is that you cannot decrypt them, and so you will not recover them regardless of whether you remove Qinynore Ransomware now or later. On the other hand, your virtual security is at risk here, and that is why we suggest taking care of the infection as soon as possible. Follow the instructions below if you think you can find and delete Qinynore Ransomware launcher on your own. If you cannot take on the task, install a legitimate anti-malware program. It will inspect the system and remove all malicious threats that exist automatically. The most important task for this program, of course, is to secure your system and protect it against malware. Another thing you can do for your own security is to set up an external backup to keep your files safe.
