What is Armage Ransomware?

Have you found your personal files with the .armage filename extension? If so, it is very likely that you have encountered Armage Ransomware, which is a new infection that targets users’ personal files. Like many other ransomware-type infections available on the market, this threat mercilessly locks all the most valuable users’ files, including documents and images. Without a doubt, the author of Armage Ransomware wants your money. It is very likely that you will be told that it is the only way to unlock encrypted data if you contact the author, but you would make a huge mistake by sending a demanded ransom because you have zero guarantees that those affected files will get back to normal, or you will get a decryption key to unlock your files with. No, you will not get your money back in this case. No matter what you decide to do, make sure you do not keep the malicious application you have encountered active on your computer. Luckily, the removal of Armage Ransomware should be quick and easy since this threat deletes itself once executed, leaving only the text file on the victim’s computer.test

What does Armage Ransomware do?

No doubt Armage Ransomware has been developed to lock users’ files and extract money because it starts looking for personal data to encrypt after the execution. It does not differ from other ransomware infections analyzed by our specialists – it locks almost all media files a user has. It uses the .armage extension to mark those files, so we are sure it will not take long to find out about its entrance if you ever encounter it. It is not the only thing that will catch your eye. If you inspect your files closely, you should also find a new .txt file among them after the entrance of the ransomware infection. This text file is a ransom note. Surprisingly, it contains only a few sentences. Usually, ransom notes are way longer. The ransom note tells users about the encryption algorithm used. Also, they find out that they will get the decryption tool only if they send an email to the provided email address ( You can drop a message to cyber criminals if you want to, but be prepared to get an answer with instructions on how to send Bitcoin. We have already said this in the first paragraph, but we are going to repeat it – do not transfer money to malware developers. You do not even know whether they have the working decryptor!

Where does Armage Ransomware come from?

There is nothing new we can say about the distribution of Armage Ransomware. Specialists say that it should be spread the same as hundreds of other malicious applications.
