What is Ransomware?

What happens when Ransomware slithers into your operating system? First, it encrypts files, which it does using an encryptor. Then, it creates a file to introduce the victim to very specific instructions, as well as to provide them with some information. If they just find that they cannot open their personal files – due to the data of these files being modified – they might not realize what has happened. That is why a message must be delivered. According to research team, if this infection got in, the only thing you can do is delete Ransomware as quickly as possible. Will that restore files? No, it will not. That being said, the presence of cyber criminals on your operating system will be diminished, and you will be able to take the steps necessary to ensure protection against other malicious threats. What about the files? Shouldn’t you restore them before you remove the malicious threat? Most likely, you cannot fix this.

How does Ransomware work?

Our research team informs that Ransomware and Globeimposter 2.0 Ransomware are more alike than they are different. In fact, the infection we are discussing in this report is the clone of the devious Globeimposter. It appears that it is just a new version of this infamous infection. That means that it also relies on unsafe RDP channels and spam emails to spread across vulnerable Windows systems. It also means that once files are encrypted, they cannot be read or restored. It should not be hard for you to spot the corrupted files, as the “.crypted_bizarrio@pay4me_in” must be attached to all of their names. Unfortunately, you are likely to find this extension attached to important documents, sentimental photos, archives, media files, and all kinds of data. Needless to say, Ransomware is not interested in system files you can replace. Instead, it goes after personal files that you should not be able to replace, unless backups exist. We hope that they do; otherwise, it is likely that you will have lost your personal files.

Remember the message we mentioned earlier? It is delivered to victims using “how_to_back_files.html,” and this file should be placed in a visible place, or copies could be created everywhere. In any case, you want to delete this file too. Even though it is not malicious, it is a creation of cyber attackers, and the message inside is meant to trick gullible users into contacting them. Two email addresses ( and are included in the message, and you are asked to send a special code to them so that attackers could decrypt your files. What does that mean? Will you get a decryptor if you email your attackers? Of course, you will not. Instead, they will push you to pay a ransom, and giving your money to cyber criminals is the worst thing you can do. Not only will you NOT get your files back, you will also support cyber criminals so that they could continue their attacks. It should come as no surprise that we do not recommend paying the ransom, and, instead, we suggest wasting no time to remove Ransomware.

How to delete Ransomware
