Where does Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware come from?

This ransomware infection is no different from others, it uses the usual channels to infect unsuspecting users. The main distribution method seems to be spamming campaigns. You may receive a spam mail with an attached file, which is indeed the malicious executable. Of course, this attachment is disguised and this spam is set up to deceive you. In other words, do not think for a second that it is easy to spot it. A few years back maybe it was still quite obvious when you got a spam mail, but cyber crooks are constantly evolving and are at least one step ahead. This spam can be very convincing at first and you may actually feel that you must open it. The sender could be totally authentic-looking and the subject may be regarding an issue that could be related to anyone really or at least, could seem to raise curiosity. For example, it could be about an invoice you failed to settle, wrong data you allegedly gave while booking or purchasing something online, and so on. Please remember that once you execute this attachment, you cannot delete Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware from your system without possible damage to your files and to your system. Even if, in this special case, it is possible that may be able to decrypt your files, there is always a chance that there are several variants of such a threat out there and one may be more dangerous than others.

Another possibility for you to infect your computer is to use outdated browsers and drivers (Java and Flash). Cyber criminals create websites with so-called Exploit Kits (e.g., RIG) and can infect you behind your back as soon as your browser loads the page. This means that even if you notice that you got redirected to a suspicious page, it will be too late to close the tab or exit your browser because the infection will have already been accomplished. This is why it is important that you keep all your programs updated frequently because this is yet another free way for you to protect your system and your files unless you want the headache of having to remove Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware.

How does Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware work?

After you launch this ransomware program, it creates a Run registry entry in "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" that could have a random name. This way it can start up automatically with Windows. Our malware experts say that this ransomware infection can encrypt almost all your files, including some of the Windows system files as well. The affected files get a ".bitcoin" extension. The ransom note text file is called "bitcoin2018.txt" and it is dropped in every affected folder. As we have mentioned, this malware uses the good old WannaCry design, which is displayed once the attack is over. This application window informs you about your files having been encrypted and that you only way you can get them back is by paying $100 in Bitcoins to the given Bitcoin address. You can send these criminals an e-mail including a few small files to "" to have them decrypted for free, but we do not advise you to do that since these crooks may send further infections back to you. As we have already said, there is a working free decryptor available on the web, which you can use to recover your files. Please note that there might be different variants on the web so there is a chance that you may only be able to restore your files if you use a backup you saved previously on a removable drive or in cloud. We recommend that after you use the decryptor, you remove Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware right away.
