Arsium Ransomware

What is Arsium Ransomware?

You might think that we are about to talk about another ransomware infection because it’s Arsium Ransomware after all, but guess what – it’s not your average ransomware app. Now, why is that? It’s because the program is actually a builder set devised to help you CREATE ransomware. So, it’s like a toolkit for people who want to make their own malicious infections. Perhaps it’s a good thing that none of the samples we had worked, but just in case you find this builder on your system, you should probably remove Arsium Ransomware for good. If it was you who downloaded the builder, we urge you to reconsider your intentions.

Where does Arsium Ransomware come from?

Since it is a malware builder, this program is not available out in the open for everyone to see. On the other hand, our team suggests that it is still distributed for free in hacker forums. In other words, it means that people who know how to access dark web can get their hands on Arsium Ransomware without too much difficulty.

Needless to say, because of this, just very few instances of Arsium Ransomware can be discovered on computers worldwide. Unless, of course, someone gets infected with an already modified version of this malware builder.

What can Arsium Ransomware do?

It is hard to say exactly what Arsium Ransomware can do because the program’s functionality depends on what the owner might want it to do. On the other hand, we can talk a little bit about the builder’s features, and what it allows you to enable on the program.

Let’s look at the name first. Usually, ransomware programs get their names from their extensions and from whatever information they display on the ransom note. Arsium Ransomware takes its name from the nickname of the person who originally created the builder. It is also very likely that people who modify this builder to create their own infections might change the name later on.

For example, when someone creates their own malware on Arsium, they can choose the extension that will be added to the files, once they get encrypted. Also, it is possible to specify the folder that needs to be targeted for encryption. The interesting thing is that this folder has to be on the Desktop, so it is very likely that Arsium Ransomware isn’t such a dangerous infection and it cannot affect many directories. From what we know, the program should encrypt files in the specified folder that is located on the desktop.

Aside from that, the way Arsium Ransomware should function really depends on the person who modifies and creates the infection through this builder. We do know for sure that the ransomware would ask for a ransom, saying it would issue the decryption key once you have transferred the payment. The ransom payment might range from several hundred US dollars to several thousand. It all depends on what the owner wants.

How do I remove Arsium Ransomware?

We would like to remind you that Arsium Ransomware is not an actual infection but a ransomware development kit. So, if you got this builder with the intention to create a ransomware application, you clearly know how to remove it from your system. We also believe that no matter what we say, you would still proceed with creating malware because you’re clearly not a very nice person.

On the other hand, if you are a user who wants to protect their system from Arsium Ransomware or any other infection, you should clearly pay attention to what we have to say next. After all, you play a big part in ensuring your system’s security.

Usually, ransomware programs do not drop additional files on the target system. Therefore, to remove ransomware, you need to delete the files that launched the infection. In fact, ransomware removal is not the hardest part. The most frustrating part of this experience is that you might need to look for various ways to restore the encrypted files. Of course, if you back up all of your files on an external disk, it won’t be a problem. But there are a lot of users out there who end up building their file libraries anew.
