Redshitline Ransomware is a computer infection that usually sneaks onto computers without permission. It is aimed at users who do not have a security tool installed and surf the web rather carelessly. Ransomware infections do not hide themselves like other threats, so you will notice that you have Redshitline Ransomware on your system really quickly. There is 99% possibility that this threat has sneaked onto your computer if you cannot open any of your files and all your shortcuts are inactive. On top of that, you will, most probably, see that your homepage is changed. The only way to restore all those changes is to delete Redshitline Ransomware from the system. As Redshitline Ransomware is not a good program, make sure that you eliminate it as soon as possible. We hope that information provided in this article will help you to do that.
The first symptom that Redshitline Ransomware has sneaked onto the computer is the inability to access programs and shortcuts. It will be impossible to access them because this ransomware infection will encrypt all of them and assign the filename extension .IDB4520915.email@example.com or a similar one (numbers at the beginning will be completely different). In addition, it will change the Desktop wallpaper in order to inform users of what has happened. Last but not least, it will create and put the text (.txt) document How to decrypt your files on the Desktop in order to inform users how it is possible to unlock files. Unfortunately, Redshitline Ransomware will encrypt hundreds of different files. Specialists at 411-spyware.com have managed to find out that it will encrypt pictures, images, videos, documents, and even music. You already know how to recognize the encrypted files.
If you already see the message on your screen and your files are all encrypted, we are sure that you know that Redshitline Ransomware is installed, and you need to send one locked file to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. If you contact cyber criminals that hide behind this ransomware by any of these emails, you will, probably, receive an answer that you have to transfer money for the decryption of files. Actually, this is the only way to unlock files at the time of writing because Redshitline Ransomware uses the strong RSA-2048 encryption algorithm. Of course, you can easily transfer files from the backup to your computer if you have one. In such a case, you will not need to pay money, but you will still need to remove Redshitline Ransomware first.
Redshitline Ransomware will not only encrypt files and put the warning on the screen. It has also been observed that it will create the Value (e.g. rvpjmcnd) in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run in order to be able to start together with Windows OS. What is more, it will place its main file, e.g. 5aba34027d2db0e1cffda281021c61903cac21f3759fc045278480204138b647.exe (the name might differ) in C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup. As can be seen, Redshitline Ransomware applies changes in order to be able to stay on the system.
We are sure that you have not downloaded and installed Redshitline Ransomware yourself consciously because it is known that this threat usually travels as an attachment in spam emails. Of course, it pretends to be decent, so users open it without any fear. Unfortunately, they allow this ransomware infection to sneak onto the computer if they do that. In fact, it is quite a difficult task to prevent ransomware infections from slithering onto computers. Therefore, the best would be to install a security tool and keep it there all the time. Make sure that you do not download untrustworthy software from third-party websites as well.
It is a must to delete Redshitline Ransomware if you want to gain access to your computer and restore files from the backup. Unfortunately, it will be really hard to do that because this infection does not have an uninstaller. Luckily, it will disappear after you remove all of its files. If you need some help with that, use instructions provided below. Another way to get rid of this ransomware infection is to scan the system with SpyHunter.
