What is bkp@cock.li Ransomware?

Have you found a window with a padlock image claiming that “All your files have been encrypted!” opened on your Desktop? If so, bkp@cock.li Ransomware must have infiltrated your computer and already done the damage. bkp@cock.li Ransomware is nothing else than a harmful malicious application that seeks to obtain money from users. It locks personal files on affected computers for the same reason as well. The exact amount of money cyber criminals behind this infection wants is not indicated in the message the opened window contains, but it still tells users that they will have to pay money if they have encountered bkp@cock.li Ransomware: “You have to pay for decryption in Bitcoins.” Of course, it does not mean that you could not delete this threat from your system if you do not transfer a ransom. Actually, we do not even recommend sending money to malicious software developers because they will definitely take your money, but there are no guarantees that the working decryption tool will be sent to you. The ransomware infection will not be erased from your computer, no matter you pay money or not.testtest

What does bkp@cock.li Ransomware do?

bkp@cock.li Ransomware encrypts all kinds of files, including all important pictures and documents on affected computers. Without a doubt, these are the most important users’ files, so a bunch of users who fall victim to this ransomware infection arrive at a decision to do as cyber criminals tell them to. That is, they do as instructed – transfer money to the ransomware developer. All files encrypted by bkp@cock.li Ransomware get a new extension, for example, file.jpg will turn into File.jpg.id-B4510923.[bkp@cock.li].bkp after the encryption. A unique ID is given to every new victim, so the extension that your files have received must have different numbers.  bkp@cock.li Ransomware not only locks users’ personal files, as research has shown. It also opens a window with a ransom note, as mentioned in the first paragraph. You will be told that your files have been encrypted because you have experienced a serious security problem. Also, if you read it, you will find out that you need to send a unique ID to bkp@cock.li and then send Bitcoin in exchange for the decryptor to cyber criminals. Users can send 1 file to get it decrypted for free before paying a ransom – cyber criminals want to show victims that they have a working tool. Even if you get that file decrypted, there are, unfortunately, no guarantees that you will really get those files you pay for back. Since it is unclear whether crooks will help you to unlock your files, we suggest that you do not send a cent to them. In such a case, files could only be restored if you have a backup.
