Tunca Ransomware is an annoying computer infection that takes users by surprise. It is even more annoying because users do not realize when they allow this program to enter their systems. However, you can remove Tunca Ransomware from your computer, and you should do it immediately. You can find the manual removal instructions below this description, but if you do not feel confident enough to do it on your own, you can always get yourself a legitimate security tool that will help you clean your computer automatically. Please do not hesitate to do everything you can to protect your system from harm.
Computer security experts always emphasizes the importance of a file backup because of such infections. You should regularly back up your files on an external hard drive or a cloud drive. Although professional technicians are working around the clock to mitigate the damage caused by various ransomware infections, sometimes it is not possible to decrypt the locked files. This is exactly the case with Tunca Ransomware. And it is not about the lack of effort on the security professionals’ side. It’s about the limitations of the ransomware program’s coding.
The problem with Tunca Ransomware is that the program’s encryption string is salted with a random string that is not recorded anywhere. Normally, the encryption strings are stored or sent to the malware server, but that one random string does not seem to be sent anywhere, and thus, when one string is missing, it makes it impossible to decrypt the affected files. As a result, doing whatever the ransom note tells you to do is useless. Not that you should pay these criminals in the first place. They would definitely like it if you did it though, as you can see from the ransom note:
Ooops, it seems like all your files have been
encrypted with AESencryption algorithm.
How do I pay?
- Simply buy a 100€ Paysafecard
- Send a message with the Paysafecard PIN to this account :
- Wait for us to confirm your payment
- Get the decryptor
Tunca Ransomware even has the nerve to tell you that you can get the decryptor if you infect ten people with the same ransomware program. In other words, it tries to turn you into a cybercriminal, too.
Needless to say, you should never do what this program tells you. You need to remove Tunca Ransomware right now. If you have copies of your files saved someplace else, you can delete the encrypted files along with the malicious program, and then transfer the healthy copies back into your system.
You might also have a lot of your files saved on your mobile device, your flash drive, maybe your work computer, or your email inbox. It is important to explore all the possible options before you start from scratch again. However, even starting all over isn’t as bad as turning into a cybercrime puppet. Therefore, terminate Tunca Ransomware right now, and then employ all the security measures to avoid similar infections in the future.
