InducVirus Ransomware

InducVirus Ransomware

Do not leave your Windows operating system vulnerable to the malicious InducVirus Ransomware, also known as Delphi Ransomware. This dangerous infection relies on unprotected systems with security backdoors, and when it invades, the victim is not alarmed at all. The encryption process is silent, and the infection is capable of encrypting files in the %USERPROFILE% directory without any notice. Once they are encrypted, the “.FilGZmsp” extension is added to the names, which should help you see which files were corrupted faster. If you are prepared, your personal files are backed up, and there is nothing you need to worry about. Delete InducVirus Ransomware and then use your backups to access files. If files are not backed up, you might be thinking about contacting cyber criminals – something we discuss in this report – but that is dangerous. In any case, whatever moves you make, you must remove the infection, and the information Anti-Spyware-101.com research team provides will help you with the process. Read more »

CuteRansom Ransomware

Did CuteRansom Ransomware attack your operating system? If it did, your personal files must be encrypted and renamed, and you must have been introduced to a message indicating that files were corrupted using YuAlock. This is an alternative name, but both are equally as valid. This malware works like your regular file-encryptor (e.g., XARCryptor Ransomware or BooM Ransomware), but it is not a cookie-cutter. At the time of research, this infection did not ask for a payment in return for a decryption key or program. In fact, the message created by the treat asked to send an email. This is bizarre, and, unfortunately, it is unlikely that anything can be done to decrypt files. Once they are corrupted, they are practically lost.

If they are, you need to delete CuteRansom Ransomware and then figure out how to ensure that this threat – or any other – invades your operating system in the future. Read more »
