BDKR Ransomware

BDKR Ransomware

Cyber criminals behind the old ransomware infection LockCrypt Ransomware have not stopped doing their dirty work. As specialists have noticed, BDKR Ransomware, which has turned out to be the new version of this malicious application, has been recently spotted by malware analysts. The malicious application is quite destructive, they say, but, of course, it shares the primary goal with its predecessor. To be more specific, there is no doubt that it has also been developed by cyber criminals to extract money from users easier. BDKR Ransomware not only encrypts personal files once it is launched but also drops its own copy to the %WINDIR% folder next to system files and creates a point of execution (PoE). As a consequence, it continues working in the background even after the system restart and kills all launched applications, which clearly shows that it is quite sophisticated malware. Luckily, it does not affect Task Manager – you could delete BDKR Ransomware from your system manually. It is not a problem if you do not know anything about the removal of malicious software because our specialists have prepared the step-by-step manual removal guide to make cleaning the system an easier task.
