Serbransom Ransomware is a newly discovered ransomware that is very dangerous, and you should remove it as soon as possible. It is still a work in progress, but its developers were compelled to release the unfinished malware that encrypts the files but does not offer the victims to purchase the decryption key. So until a free decrypter has been created, you should keep your decrypted files. In this article, we will discuss how this malicious program is being distributed, how it works, and how you can get rid of it, so if your PC has been infected with this ransomware, please continue reading.
If your PC were to be infected with Serbransom Ransomware, then it will go to work immediately and start encrypting your personal files. We have found that its developers have released an application, a ransomware generator that enables any novice to create his/her own custom Serbransom Ransomware. This generator is probably disseminated as Ransomware as a Service (RaaS) on a hidden TOR network, so only a selected few can get their hands on it.
The would-be cyber crook can set this ransomware to encrypt all of the files on your PC or a list of selected extensions. In any case, your personal files may become encrypted, and the cyber criminals aim to encrypt files for which you may be compelled to pay a large ransom. Furthermore, the ransomware generator allows its users to set the Bitcoin wallet to which the victim is expected to send the payment. The user can also create a custom encrypted extension and enter the email address that will be shown to the victim for communication. Furthermore, the generator allows the user to select how many Megabytes Serbransom Ransomware will have to encrypt.
We do not know what kind of encrypt algorithm this ransomware uses, but it is clear that it will use either the RSA or AES algorithm that is pretty strong. At this point in time, there is no free decryption tool that could decrypt your files for free. However, if Serbransom Ransomware were to drop a ransom note (which it does not) that should feature instructions on how to pay the ransom, you should not expect cybercriminals to keep their end of the bargain and give you the decryptor and decryption key.
As far as Serbransom Ransomware’s distribution methods are concerned, we have received unconfirmed information that it might be distributed via malicious emails that feature the main executable in the attached file. Furthermore, we have read that it can also be found on infected websites that have exploits that can infect your PC with this ransomware. Given how many people can distribute custom versions f this malware, there is no way of knowing how it can infect your PC. But, it will not infect it if your PC has an antimalware program.
That is all of the information we currently have about this shady application. However, it is clear that its purpose is to infect your PC and encrypt your files secretly. Therefore, we suggest that you remove Serbransom Ransomware from your PC as soon as you can. We suggest that you use SpyHunter’s free scanner and then delete the malicious file(s) manually.
