Vpsh Ransomware is one of the many ransomware infections that belong to the STOP Ransomware family. It is an annoying security threat that can and will encrypt your files if you allow it to enter your computer. Most of the time, users install the likes of Vpsh Ransomware on their systems willingly even though they are not aware of it. Our entry here will tell you how to remove Vpsh Ransomware from your system, and what you can do to stop similar programs from infecting you again. It all depends on your ability to recognize potential threats.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to become an expert in cybersecurity to avoid something like Vpsh Ransomware. Seeing how this program comes from the STOP Ransomware family, it will probably employ the same distribution methods as Ogdo Ransomware, Boop Ransomware, DogeCrypt Ransowmare, and many other programs from the same family. And the most common distribution method for ransomware is spam email campaigns.
Users get tricked into opening spam emails that carry these annoying attachments. Attachments could look like legitimate documents, especially if the emails are sophisticated enough to pass for notifications from reputable companies. In some cases, cybercriminals might even use a hacked email account from your own workplace to spread malware. You might think that you’re receiving and email from a colleague, but in fact, it’s a ransomware distribution message. Surprise!
Of course, you can always delete such messages before opening them, but if you fret that you might be deleting an important document, there’s a way to check those files before you terminate them. You can use a reliable antispyware scanner to scan the attached files. If the scanner shows that the files are safe, you can proceed to open them. But if the scanner bleeps that the files are dangerous, delete them at once.
Needless to say, users who get infected with Vpsh Ransomware have failed recognizing the dangerous files. And once this program is on-board, it scans the entire system looking for the types of files it can encrypt. The encryption itself takes only few moments and before you know it, you see the following ransom note on your screen:
Don’t worry, you can return all your files!
All your files like pictures, databases, documents and other important are encrypted with strongest encryption and unique key.
The only method of recovering files is to purchase decrypt tool and unique key for you.
The price of private key and decrypt software is $980.

Now, this ransom note is practically identical across all the STOP Ransomware family infections. Another common thing is that there is a public decryption tool that may work on most of the infections. We say “may work” because it depends on what kind of encryption key Vpsh Ransomware uses to encrypt your files. If the infection uses an offline key to do that, you can restore your files with the said public decryption tool. If Vpsh Ransomware uses an online encryption key, the decryption tool will not work.
Nevertheless, you still need to remove Vpsh Ransomware from your computer, and you can do that either by following the instructions below or by employing an automated malware removal tool. Automatic malware removal is faster and more efficient. Not to mention that you would be able to find other potential and remove them all, before you transfer healthy files back into a clean system. Whichever way you choose to remove Vpsh Ransomware, make sure that you do not have to deal with similar infections again.
