Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware

Ransomware does not stop, and ransomware creators do not sleep. The newest infection to join the ever-growing family is Servicedeskpay@protonmail.com Ransomware, and it is just as bad as it sounds. While there are quite a few fake file-encryptors circulating the web these days – and that is because even the amateurs are now trying to build ransomware – this one is not fake. In fact, it is so real that it will encrypt every single personal file if it stored in the right place.

NSB Ransomware

NSB Ransomware is a troublesome file-encrypting threat because it not only ruins the user’s data but also locks his screen. As a consequence, the user cannot access the computer. Our specialists say users can get rid of the locked screen if they restart the computer in Safe Mode and remove the malicious program. Sadly, the files will remain to be enciphered even if the malware is no longer on the system. Therefore, some users might consider paying to hackers since the message they leave behind states that all will go back to normal soon after the victim pays them a particular amount of Bitcoins. What is interesting is the hackers are trying to convince their victims that they have broken specific laws and they ask to pay not a ransom, but a fine. Nevertheless, we do not think many users might fall for such a scam. Those of you who have no intention to put up with any demands could erase NSB Ransomware while looking at the deletion instructions located at the end of this page.
