You need to be really mindful about the security of your operating system; otherwise, Suri Ransomware could slither in and encrypt your personal files. When this malicious infection attacks, it does that silently, and files are encrypted without any warning. In fact, even if you discover and delete the infection’s launcher right away, a copy might be created already. Furthermore, you might discover that your system crashes whenever you try to eliminate the infection. That is made possible by a safety mechanism that the infection installs. Even though it can successfully corrupt files and even circumvent removal, there is a way for you to delete Suri Ransomware. In fact, there are several removal options you can choose from, and we discuss them both in this guide. If you wish to learn more, please continue reading. And if you have questions afterward, you can ask away using the comments section.
Did the malicious Suri Ransomware attack when you accidentally opened a corrupted spam email attachment? Maybe it was a bundled installer that allowed the infection to slither in? Unfortunately, the distribution of this malware is pretty unpredictable, and we cannot tell you how it got in. Of course, if you let it in yourself, and you know where the .exe launcher file is, it might be easier for you to delete the infection manually, but the operation does not come without its obstacles. Unfortunately, you are most likely to realize that you need to remove Suri Ransomware only after you discover encrypted files or after the background image is changed and the ransomware window is launched. The infection only encrypts files on the Desktop (including folders), and so if you do not keep files here, you might escape the attack altogether. However, if files are encrypted successfully (you can see if they were if the “.SLAV” extension is attached), you are not in a good position. Right after encryption, the threat changes the Desktop background using Back.jpep. This image displays a message in Italian. It reveals that a ransom of 100 Euro is expected.
Suri Ransomware also launches a window entitled “Suri” with a sad emoticon to give you instructions. The message in the window pushes to pay the ransom in 6 hours. Although it is stated that all files are encrypted (“tutti i tuoi file personali sono stati cryptati”), you know that only files on the Desktop are compromised. Are they worth a 100 EUR payout? Even if they are, you need to consider the possibility that cyber criminals would take your money and disappear. Suri Ransomware was built using the Hidden Tear open source code, the same one that was used for ShutUpAndDance Ransomware, PTP Ransomware, and many others. Our analysts warn that the attackers behind these threats can make false promises and offer bogus tools. Of course, even if you pay the ransom and, by some miracle, your files are decrypted, you need to make sure that you remove the infection. It will not disappear on its own, and its malicious elements could continue causing damage. The launcher’s copy is added to the Startup, and so it runs every time you start your Windows operating system.
If you want to remove Suri Ransomware manually, you need to approach this task in a certain way. If you try to kill the malicious file, your system will crash, and you will be stopped in your tracks. On the other hand, if you reboot to Safe Mode, no one will stop you from erasing the infection yourself. That being said, we cannot tell you where to find the launcher, or even what its name is, and so we cannot tell if you will be able to delete Suri Ransomware all on your own. You have the option to install an anti-malware program that can automatically erase the infection. If you want to do this, choose Safe Mode with Networking. While you might be able to clean your system all on your own, you also need to think about security, and anti-malware software can take care of it too. If you protect your system and also back up your files online (or using external drives), you will not need to fear the invasion of another file-encrypting ransomware infection.
