World Ransomware adds the “.id-{unique number}.[].world” extension to your personal files after it successfully invades your Windows operating system. What is the point of that? Although the attackers might have no use for your personal videos, photos, audio files, or documents, they hope that you value these files. If you do, you might be desperate to get them back after the encryption, and that is when the attackers can start making their demands. So, your personal files were encrypted not to destroy them per se, but to provide cybercriminals with leverage. Though it might seem that attackers are in full control here, you are the only one who can decide what to do. So, should you obey cybercriminals or should you defy them? Without a doubt, we do not recommend following their demands. However, if you cannot recover files – and you cannot do that by deleting World Ransomware – you might feel forced to do things you do not want to.

So, who is to blame for the invasion of World Ransomware? Most likely, a weak security system, and it is the responsibility of the device’s owner to secure it. Are you the owner? Of course, it is cybercriminals who decided to attack, and so they are responsible for the mess. Since they could never drop malware with the victims knowing about it, they use deception and tricks to attack systems silently. Spam emails, RDP vulnerabilities, malware-dropping infections, fake update pop-ups, and malicious bundles can all be used to execute World Ransomware and tons of other threats alike. Some of them include RegretLocker Ransomware, V3JS Ransomware, and Fireee Ransomware. Although they might belong to different attackers, these infections are pretty much identical. As soon as they invade unguarded systems, they start encrypting files. In most cases, additional extensions are pinned to their names as markers, and they often dictate the names of the threats themselves. After that is done, these threats usually drop additional files to introduce victims to ransom notes.

World Ransomware appears to use its own .exe file to launch a window entitled “,” and because this window displays a message from the attackers, no additional files need to be dropped. The message opens with this statement: “YOUR FILES ARE ENCRYPTED. Don't worry,you can return all your files!” The greatest cybercriminals’ weapon in this case is the hope they are able to create. They claim that you can recover all files just as long as you comply with a few demands. World Ransomware demands that you email, but of course, that is not the end of the road. If you do as told, the attackers will know that you have become a victim of the infection, and then they will ask for money. Since your files are encrypted, they are most likely to propose a decryptor in return for your money, and that constitutes a ransom. This is why this malware is classified as ransomware. So, do you follow the instructions to get your files back? We do not recommend it because we doubt that you could obtain a decryptor. In fact, you are only likely to flood yourself with misleading messages from cybercriminals.

Although it might seem that World Ransomware is a completely destructive threat, it cannot touch copies of your personal files if they are stored online, on external hard drives, or on other devices. Do you have copies? If you do, remove the infection without further hesitation. After you are done, you can replace the corrupted files. What if that is not the situation you are in? Perhaps that means that you have lost your files. In any case, you must remove World Ransomware. If you want to do that manually, you have to find the launcher file, and we cannot know its exact location on your system. Perhaps you can find it on the Desktop, in the Downloads folder, or the %TEMP% directory, but it could be elsewhere too. If there is a running process linked to this file, maybe you can find and delete the infection yourself. But can you also secure your system against new attacks? If you cannot, we advise employing legitimate anti-malware software now. It will simultaneously secure and automatically remove active infections.
