raphaeldupon@aol.com Ransomware is a malicious threat that shows a message saying: “If you want to restore them, write us to the e-mail raphaeldupon@aol.com.” The sentence refers to the restoration of data encrypted by the malware. It is only possible with specific decryption tools, the hackers behind the infection claim to have. In exchange for sending it to the victim, they demand a ransom. Needless to say, if you do not want to risk wasting your money on tools you may never receive, we advise you not to contact the malicious application’s developers. Later in the article, we will tell you the most important details about it as well as show you how to erase it manually if you decide to get rid of raphaeldupon@aol.com Ransomware. However, we would like to stress the fact the removal task might be challenging, and in case it looks too complicated it might be best to employ a trustworthy security tool.

raphaeldupon@aol.com Ransomware could slip in after launching a suspicious email attachment, software installer, or any other file downloaded/received from the Internet. This is why to avoid it or keep away from the similar threats we strongly recommend being more careful with data if you are not one hundred percent sure it is harmless. Even the slightest suspicion should be checked by scanning the file in question with a reliable antimalware tool.

Also, it is advisable not to interact with links send by email if they come with Spam or from unknown senders. In some cases, hackers pretend to be representing reputable companies. Sometimes you can find out about it by checking if the sender’s email address is forged. If it is being used by the organization, the sender claims to represent, there should be proof of it on the company’s official site or anywhere else. Thus, keep in mind, investing a couple of minutes to check the sender’s details or files attached to the email might help you protect the system from various threats.

At first, raphaeldupon@aol.com Ransomware should stay hidden until it settles in and encrypts all user’s files. Apparently, it might need to create quite a lot of data to settle in, and if you want to see it, you should check the instructions below, where it is listed. Some part of the threat’s created files is needed to make the system launch the malware after each restart. It means it might encrypt your files every time you turn on the computer. Such behavior may not damage already affected files, but it could ruin new data. After encryption, the threat should place the same text document in a few locations. Inside of it, you should see a message claiming you can encrypt files with the hackers’ decryption tools, but to receive them you need to pay a ransom. The malware’s developers do not say how much it would be, but whatever the price is we do not recommend paying it.

Despite the hackers’ promises, there are no guarantees they will hold on to their word. Meaning, you could lose your money in vain, and the files would be still encrypted. For users who do not want to risk their savings, we advise erasing raphaeldupon@aol.com Ransomware and replacing enciphered data with backup copies. Some users might have complete backups of all of their data, while others may have copies of some files even if they did not make them intentionally, for example, photos or videos on social media and so on. Of course, it would be wise not to risk the safety of such files and to erase raphaeldupon@aol.com Ransomware first.

As said earlier the manual removal process could be complicated, so at first, we would recommend checking the instructions located below. If they do appear to be too challenging, it would be safer to employ a reliable security tool.
