Category: Trojans Ransomware is a new addition to the family of ransomware infections using the email. This threat is new, but it works the same as a bunch of other threats categorized as ransomware. Once it is executed, it encrypts files on affected computers without hesitation. Then, a ransom note that asks money is dropped on the system. The ransomware infection does not create a point of execution, as specialists have observed, but victims still find the ransom note opened on their Desktops after restarting their computers. The opened ransom note is one of the first signs showing that the entrance of the ransomware infection was successful. You must erase it from your computer as soon as possible. Unfortunately, not a single file will be unlocked on your system even if you erase the malicious application fully. It does not mean that you can let it stay active on your computer. We will help you to delete Ransomware, but it would be best that you read this report first before its removal. Ransomware will encrypt files on your computer the first thing. We cannot list all extensions it targets, but we are sure that this malicious application will not miss a chance to lock all media files, documents, and other important users’ files. If you ever encounter Ransomware, it will not take long to find out which files have been locked on the system because all encrypted files will be marked with the extension .SAVEfiles. Unlike some other infections, it does not rename any affected files. You should also find the ransom note dropped in every affected location as well, as mentioned in the previous paragraph. This file explains that personal files cannot be opened and have new extensions appended because they have been encrypted. It also informs that the only possible data recovery method is to purchase the decryptor and unique private key. After the purchase, users have to open the decryptor and enter the unique private key to unlock affected files. Of course, cyber criminals do not give the decryption software for free to Ransomware victims. Users can buy it from them for 500 USD. The price is available the first 72 hours only, so if you are going to send money to crooks, make sure you do that within the given time frame. Unfortunately, no other free file recovery methods exist except for retrieving files from a backup located on a USB flash drive or a similar device.

Malicious applications are often distributed as email attachments because cyber criminals know well that computer users are curious creatures that tend to open attachments they receive. Also, if your files have been locked by Ransomware, this might suggest that the RDP connection you use has been hacked and the ransomware infection has been dropped on your computer without your knowledge. Finally, some users download malware from the web and launch it themselves. Of course, they do not know that software they have downloaded from the web is malicious until they find out that almost all their files have been encrypted. Ransomware is only one of a bunch of threats that have been developed to lock data on users’ computers, so you must be very cautious in order not to find yourself in the same unpleasant situation again. It is not always very easy to prevent untrustworthy software from entering the system – malware users various sophisticated tactics in order not to get caught. Therefore, we highly recommend that you install reputable security software to protect your PC instead of trying to recognize and avoid malware all by yourself. Ransomware needs to be erased from the system even if it has turned out that files have been ruined beyond retrieval. You will erase it by deleting suspicious files downloaded recently and removing the ransom note from the Startup folder. Our instructions will show you how to do that, but if you want the situation to be handled for you automatically, you must use an antimalware scanner instead. Needless to say, only a reputable scanner could clean the system for you.
