It takes one click to launch Razy Ransomware, and, unless you have a strong security system, you will not be warned about it. This devious infection hides behind attachments in spam emails, and an action as simple as opening these attachments is enough to launch this threat. Unfortunately, the user is most likely to think that an error has occurred when the attachment does not open. In reality, the ransomware is executed silently, and the attack begins. According to our research, this infection is fully launched from the .exe file that is represented as an attachment. Therefore, if you can identify the file that is responsible for the attack of the ransomware, it will be easy for you to initiate the removal process. Before you delete Razy Ransomware, there are a few things that you should learn. For one, paying the ransom requested is not something you should even consider.
Razy Ransomware creates three additional files (all on the Desktop) once it is executed. One of these files is css.vbs, and it launches an audio message that is represented by a computer-generated voice. This file delivers two messages, one of which says "Attention! Attention! Attention!" and the other one informs about the encryption of the files. Both of these messages are repeated several times to get your attention. Razydecrypt.jpg is an image file that represents a ransom note. This ransom note is not informative in any manner, and its main purpose is to urge the victim to open index.html. This is the third file, and it is not any more useful. This file opens a web page that states: “PAY NOW 50€/USD TO DECRYPT YOUR FILES!” Additionally, it displays two links that you might expect to provide you with further instructions or a payment system. One of these links redirects to lolololololol.de, but this site does not work. The other one is called “mobile website creator,” and it appears to promote a completely unrelated piece of software. Based on this, we believe that Razy Ransomware is still in the development stages. Our research team also warns that this ransomware does not create a decryption key, which is also a sign of dysfunction. Unfortunately, this means bad news for its victims.
The malicious Razy Ransomware fails at providing you with useful information or creating a decryption key to recover your files. However, it successfully encrypts your files. All of the affected files gain the ".razy" extension, and their names are jumbled up to make them unidentifiable. According to our research, information suggesting that this ransomware was created for educational purposes has resurfaced recently; however, this is unlikely to be the case. Even if it was created for educational purposes, this ransomware is exploited in a malicious way. Since Razy Ransomware does not produce a decryption key, you do not need to worry about paying the ransom, which, at the moment, is impossible anyway. Unfortunately, worrying about the decryption of the files is unnecessary as well. Our researchers have discovered that this infection generates a strong 16-byte key that is impossible to decipher, and at the moment it does not seem like there are any legitimate decryption keys that could decipher it either. Hopefully, that does not mean that your files are lost.
Most users nowadays back up their files in the fear of losing them or facing damage. For example, if your hard drive is physically damaged, your files could be lost as well. Backing up your files can also save you in the event of ransomware attacking. If your files are securely backed up, you can remove Razy Ransomware without any hesitation. If you manage to decrypt your files, you cannot forget to delete this infection either. If you leave the malicious components of this ransomware, it is possible that other malicious processes could be initiated. The best way to clean your operating system is by using a trusted automated malware remover. If other threats exist – and this is possible – you want them eliminated as well. Also, you want your PC guarded against malware invasion in the future, and only trustworthy security software can guarantee you reliable protection against all threats.
