Outsider Ransomware

Outsider Ransomware

The files encrypted by Outsider Ransomware are not protected, despite the “.protected” extension that is attached to their names. This extension is created for the sole reason of making it clear which files were encrypted. Most file-encrypting threats do this, and they also sometimes rename the files that are encrypted. In that sense, you are lucky because you can, at least, identify the files that were corrupted by the infection. What’s the use? Well, if you have backups, you might be able to check which ones of your files have backup copies, and which ones are lost for good. Unfortunately, decrypting files manually is not possible, and you certainly cannot trust the attackers themselves to free your files. If you have backups, you are in an ideal situation, but do NOT connect to your backup system or service until you have the malicious Outsider Ransomware removed from your operating system. If you keep reading, you will learn about two unique methods that can help you delete this vicious infection. Read more »

Biger@x-mail.pro Ransomware

Biger@x-mail.pro Ransomware

Biger@x-mail.pro Ransomware is the infection that is responsible for making your files unreadable and for changing their names. While the actual names of the corrupted files are not changed, the infection adds a unique prefix and an extension. Due to this, a file named “document.doc” might look something like this: “email-biger@x-mail.pro.ver-CL 1.5.1.0.id-[numbers].fname-document.doc.doubleoffset.” Without a doubt, that is the kind of a filename that you are bound to notice. Although this prefix and extension combination might seem completely random, in fact, it includes a unique email address that belongs to cyber attackers. Also, it includes a unique ID that is presented to every victim. While you can remove the prefix/extension, you do not need to do that because that will not restore your files. In fact, we cannot provide you with a tool or a key that would decrypt your files. Even though the attackers behind the threat might promise you a decryptor, they are likely to be scamming you. We discuss that, as well as how to delete Biger@x-mail.pro Ransomware, in this report. Read more »

CrazyCrypt Ransomware

CrazyCrypt Ransomware

CrazyCrypt Ransomware can cause a lot of problems as the malicious application is capable not only of encrypting user’s files but also of disabling various features and modifying Registry entries. After encrypting targeted data (e.g., pictures, photos, documents, and so on), the threat should show a warning asking to contact the malware’s developers. The message should also mention the user can decrypt his data only after paying a ransom. To those who do not want to comply with the demands, the cybercriminals threaten to delete their unique decryption keys and erase some of the encrypted files permanently. Needless to say that without decryption tools the affected data is useless in any case, so if you are not planlning on paying the ransom, you should not worry about it getting erased. Our specialists say making the payment could end up badly as the hackers cannot be trusted. Thus, we advise not to risk your money and remove CrazyCrypt Ransomware with the instructions available below the article or a reliable security tool. Read more »
