Nowadays ransomware seems to be probably the most common computer infection that pushes everyone through considerable patience tests. Yyto Ransomware is one of those infections, and if this program enters your computer, you can be sure that you will not restore your encrypted files unless you have copies saved someplace else. The only reason this application enters your computer is money. It tells you to contact the people behind it so that you could find out more about the ransom payment. However, you should not succumb to these threats. Instead, remove Yyto Ransomware from your computer right now and protect your PC from harm.
Yyto Ransomware probably entered your computer via a spam email attachment. We have discussed ransomware distribution methods countless of times before, and it has already been established that users would avoid installing ransomware if they refrained from opening attachments they receive from unknown senders. Nevertheless, even if computer security experts always emphasize the importance of attentive when browsing and online behavior users still get infected with Yyto Ransomware and other similar programs. Sometimes it is not much of a problem when the infection is more of a hoax, but with this application, we have to deal with something real and nasty.
When this ransomware program enters your computer, it will use the AES encryption algorithm to encrypt most of your frequently-used files almost immediately. The program affects DOC, PDF, JPG, and many other file formats that users tend to use on a daily basis. Of course, if the infection encrypts your photos, there is always a chance that you will have some of your photos saved on your mobile device, so there is no need to panic because this is what the cyber criminals want. If you are too flustered about the situation at hand, you would be more inclined to pay the ransom fee.
Unlike other ransomware infections, Yyto Ransomware does not display the deadline clock and the ransom amount you are supposed to pay. Instead, the program shows a notification that lists a course of actions you have to take to restore your files. It says that you need to download and install the Tor browser to access the Tor mailing system, as this is the only way to contact the people behind this infection. Then you are supposed to contact them via the given email address. When you receive a reply, you may find out more about the ransom payment. However, as mentioned, this should not be your objective.
Instead, you should focus on removing Yyto Ransomware right now. The files that are responsible for installing this program on your PC might have random filenames, so it could be somewhat complicated to find all the associated malicious files, if you are not used to dealing with the Temp directory, for example. That is why it is always better to remove a malicious infection automatically. Invest in a licensed antispyware tool, and it will find and terminate all the malicious files for you. Then you will be able to delete the encrypted files and transfer the healthy copies of your data back from a file backup.
