What’s the best news you can hear when you get infected with a ransomware program? The answer is: That the affected files can be decrypted for free. Luckily, this is exactly what happened with Ransom102 Ransomware. You can scroll to the bottom of this description for the decryption code that will help you restore your files, and then do not forget to remove Ransom102 Ransomware from your computer. Please consider reviewing your web browsing habits to avoid similar infections in the future. Ransomware programs tend to use the same distribution patterns, and you just need to crack them.
The research team suggests that this program travels through spam emails or phishing emails. Normally, email service providers manage to filter spam into the Junk folder, but sophisticated messages manage to get into the main inbox, and then users are tricked into interacting with them. For instance, sometimes spam mails look like invoices from online stores or reports from financial institutions. If you are an avid shopper, you might feel inclined to click a particular email immediately, thus checking the “invoice,” that will eventually be the Ransom102 Ransomware installer file (or a file that brings any other ransomware infection for that matter).
When this program enters the target system, it launches file encryption that affects every single file in the %USERPROFILE% directory. In other words, Ransom102 Ransomware targets personal files because there is a bigger chance that users may want to pay the ransom in order to get those files back. As you already know, there is no need to pay anything because the public decryption code is available. So here we can breathe a sigh of relief.
Before we proceed with the removal instructions, let’s take a closer look at how this program behaves on your computer. Of course, we already know that Ransom102 Ransomware encrypts your files. It also opens a message box that says: “Files are encrypted. Buy a recovery code.” If you close this message box, Ransom102 Ransomware displays another one that reads: “You are ransomwared! To recover your files, email us and buy recovery code email@example.com.”
As you can see, Ransom102 Ransomware falls into the same category with several other programs that do not indicate the ransom fee in their notes. In order to find out how much they have to pay, users are expected to contact the criminals behind these infections. However, paying the ransom is not an option even if you do not have a decryption key.
Luckily, right now we can easily decrypt our files and then remove Ransom102 Ransomware for good. To get rid of this program, you need to remove the file that installed it. After that, use the code you will find below to decrypt your files.
Finally, you should invest in a licensed antispyware application that would help you protect your computer from various threats in the future. Please do not forget that you should also avoid opening random emails from unknown senders. Review your web browsing habits to make sure that cyber criminals do not take advantage of them.
