LOCKED_PAY Ransomware

LOCKED_PAY Ransomware

If your personal files were “locked” by LOCKED_PAY Ransomware, you might be thinking about following the instructions that were introduced to you by the creator of this infection. In fact, we do not really know if the attacker has also created the threat because it appears to have the code of the infamous Jigsaw Ransomware infection (just like Rodentia Ransomware, Bisquilla Ransomware, and other threats), and so it is possible that the attacker has simply used the code that was developed by the original creator. All in all, following the instructions by whoever is responsible for this malware is a bad idea. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that you are likely to waste your savings by following the demands that are delivered using a window launched by the threat. So, what are you supposed to do? Hopefully, you have backups that can replace the corrupted files, but if that is the case, we suggest that you delete LOCKED_PAY Ransomware before you move on. Read more »

FTCODE Ransomware

FTCODE Ransomware

Do you think about your virtual security often? If you forget about it or ignore it completely, FTCODE Ransomware is one of the threats that could use an opportunity to slither in. Skipped updated, carelessness when downloading new files/software, interaction with random ads and links, inability to make the distinction between legitimate emails and spam emails could all lead to the invasion of dangerous malware. In the case of the clandestine ransomware, spam emails are most likely to be used for the execution. Note that cybercriminals can create misleading addresses, subject lines, messages, and attachments to trick you into thinking that the email is real and reliable. If you are tricked, the infection is executed, and the encryption of your personal files begins shortly. You cannot recover the files by deleting FTCODE Ransomware, but it is crucial that you remove this threat anyway, and the sooner you get to it, the better. Read more »

Moka Ransomware

Moka Ransomware

If you follow the instructions presented by the attackers behind Moka Ransomware, you will contact these attackers via email, and then you will pay money to obtain a decryptor. Although these instructions may seem pretty simple, you do not want to follow them. If you do, your money will be lost, but a decryptor is unlikely to be sent to you in return. Furthermore, by exposing yourself to attackers via email, you might open a backdoor for other scams in the future. Note that infections like this ransomware are often spread using clever spam emails with harmless-looking file attachments. This is why you need to protect your email account, and you want to remove all suspicious messages that you might receive from unknown senders.

If you do not take care of it, Nesa Ransomware is one of the threats you could face and, arguably, it is one of the worst infections you could face. That is because its main function is to encrypt your files, after which, you will not be able to read any of them.

Unfortunately, the threat is likely to corrupt documents, pictures, and all other files that you consider to be personal and irreplaceable. Perhaps you have backups of your personal files? If they are stored outside of the infected machine (e.g., cloud storage), you should have no trouble replacing the corrupted files, but you should delete Nesa Ransomware and secure your operating system before you take care of that.
