Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware

Ransomware does not stop, and ransomware creators do not sleep. The newest infection to join the ever-growing family is Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware, and it is just as bad as it sounds. While there are quite a few fake file-encryptors circulating the web these days – and that is because even the amateurs are now trying to build ransomware – this one is not fake. In fact, it is so real that it will encrypt every single personal file if it stored in the right place. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the infection does not corrupt system files, but audio, video, image, and text files are a prime target. Once encrypted, these files are paralyzed, so to speak. You cannot open them, and you cannot decrypt them using regular free decryptors. Maybe a reliable decryptor will be created in the future, but, for the time being, it does not exist, and that means that you have nowhere to go with your problem. Surely, the removal of the infection is on your mind, but you might be preoccupied with the fact that your files might be lost. Despite your anguish, it is important to delete Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware as soon as possible, and you can learn how to achieve that by reading this report. Read more »
