Files do not get encrypted for no reason. The entrance of ransomware is often the cause of the unexpected encryption of files. MVP Ransomware will mercilessly lock your files too if it ever slithers onto your computer. It seems that this threat targets Russian-speaking users because it drops a ransom note that is written entirely in Russian, but even if you do not speak this language, it does not mean that you cannot encounter this threat. You will soon realize what has happened because you could no longer open your pictures, music files, videos, and all your precious documents. Cyber criminals claim that they have a tool that can unlock files in the blink of an eye, but you should not buy it by any means. It does not mean that you should ignore the problem too. We expect you to delete the ransomware infection from your system immediately. Not a single file will be unlocked on your PC even if you erase it, but you could restore them all from your backup. Users still do not realize the importance of backing up files regularly, so it is very likely that not all the MVP Ransomware victims could fix their files. If you find yourself among them, you should try out available data recovery tools, but we cannot promise that they will really help you.

Pottieq Ransomware

Pottieq Ransomware

Pottieq Ransomware is known to be a variation of Aura Ransomware. The ransomware infection has been developed to lock files on affected computers, but, luckily, it does not encrypt any system files. This means that you could continue using your computer normally. Of course, you could no longer access any of your personal files. This threat is quite sophisticated malicious software because it, unlike simpler ransomware infections, copies itself to %ALLUSERSPROFILE% and drops a ransom picture in the Startup folder so that it would be opened for the victim automatically after the system restart. The ransom note dropped let users know that the decryption service is not free: “our assistance is not free, so expect to pay a reasonable price for our decrypting service.” Ransomware developers always want money from users they manage to affect, but you should not give them a cent. We say so not without reason. It is very likely that you will not get anything from cyber criminals if you make a payment. In other words, the chances are high that your files will stay encrypted no matter what you do, so, in our opinion, it would be best to delete Pottieq Ransomware fully and then try out all alternative ways to decrypt files. For example, you can restore them from a backup. Second, you can wait until the free decryptor is released. Third, you can use available data recovery tools. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that you could fix all your files. Read more »
