Blue Eagle Ransomware

What is Blue Eagle Ransomware?

Blue Eagle Ransomware, which is also known as BlueEagle Ransomware, is a new threat that can cause serious damage to your files by encrypting them beyond the possibility of recovery unless you are willing to pay the rather steep price set for the password this infection requires to decrypt your files. Our malware experts at say that it is quite rare that such attackers send their victims the needed key, password, or tool. In fact, it is rather risky to contact such villains and send them money. Once you prove to be willing to sacrifice your hard-earned money for the release of your files, what would stop such cyber crooks from attacking you again? Thanks to cloud storage places, nowadays it is pretty easy to sync your files on your hard drive to your cloud account so that you can have an up-to-date backup of your files. But you can also use a removable drive to back up your files. In any case, such a backup could be your only savior right now. But before you rush to start copying your clean files back to your hard disk, you need to remove Blue Eagle Ransomware first. In fact, you should make sure that there are no other threats hiding on your system as well if you want to use a secure PC.

Where does Blue Eagle Ransomware come from?

There are a couple of ways for such a dangerous malware infection to infiltrate your system. One of the most likely ways is that you infect your computer via spam. You may have received an intriguing-looking e-mail lately that you could not resist to open. This spam can appear to be all fine and authentic; however, its subject is always about an urgent issue that no one can really ignore unless they are advanced users maybe. Such subject can relate to important matters like an undelivered parcel, an unpaid invoice, an issue with your credit card details regarding an online purchase, and so on. These are always topics that most of us could relate to and our curiosity would push us to want to see the details even when confident that "this must be a mistake."

This spam has an attachment that is the malicious executable itself. It can be disguised as an image or even a document with macro code. In the latter case, this document usually shows you a gibberish content and asks you to enable macro in order for you to be able to see the real content. However, when you enable it, the malicious macro code downloads the executable from the remote server and initiates this vicious attack. But no matter how this ransomware managed to sneak onto your system because what really matters now is that you cannot delete Blue Eagle Ransomware without losing your files. Keep in mind that removing this infection from your computer will not restore your encrypted files since that is impossible without the decryption key. This is why it is important that you become more careful around your e-mails and never open attachments unless you are certain they were sent to you personally or you were expecting to get them.

How does Blue Eagle Ransomware work?

This ransomware does not leave you too much space or rather, time to cancel its deadly strike. Since the whole encryption process can be just a single minute, you do not have a chance against it. You files will have a ".SaherBlueEagleRansomware" extension appended, which helps you to see the extent of the damage this malicious threat has done on your computer. This ransomware creates an executable in your temporary directory that you can find at "%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Templates\shadowdeleter.exe." This file is activated the moment you click on the "Decrypt my files" button on the ransom note screen that occupies your screen right after the encryption is over. This program can delete your shadow volume copies, which means that you are really left with no choice if you want to restore your files. These cyber criminals demand a huge price for the password that is needed for the supposed decryption of your files. You have to pay 7,660 US dollars worth of Bitcoins (1.25 BTC) at current rate. We assume that this threat is mainly meant to target major corporations like private hospitals and IT firms. However, even if you could pay this much, you need to consider the very likely possibility that these crooks disappear the moment you transfer this fee. Thus, we advise you to remove Blue Eagle Ransomware ASAP.
