Frs Ransomware

Frs Ransomware

Frs Ransomware is a recently discovered file-encrypting infection that, at the time of research, was not decryptable. That means that recovering the files corrupted by it was not possible. The creator of the infection, however, wants you to believe that a program called “FRS Decryptor” can help you. The goal is to make you pay a ransom of 0.05 Bitcoin. Although that is just around $300, it is highly unlikely that you could get your files recovered if you followed the instructions and paid the ransom. Our research team advises focusing on the removal of Frs Ransomware instead. This infection is incredibly malicious because it was created and is controlled by vicious cyber criminals. If you do not want to be under their control any longer, deleting the infection is the first step you need to take. Hopefully, you have backups for all encrypted files, but even that you need to worry about after you eliminate the malicious ransomware.
