BlueCheeser Ransomware

What is BlueCheeser Ransomware?

Do you keep important files on the Desktop? If you do, BlueCheeser Ransomware might make a huge mess. It is a file-encrypting infection, but unlike most threats of this kind, it only targets files that are found on the Desktop. Unfortunately, this is the location where most of us drop the most recent files or the files that are in use most frequently. Perhaps you have folders containing photos from your recent trips, or maybe you have documents that are important for your work or school projects. Whatever kinds of personal files you might have, they are bound to be encrypted if the infection manages to slither in and is not deleted in time. Needless to say, if you have yet to face this malicious infection – or any other kind of file-encryptor – you need to take appropriate security measures to ensure that your files and operating system are protected. If you already need to remove BlueCheeser Ransomware from your system, we are here to help, but it is unlikely that we can help you with the decryption of your files.test

How does BlueCheeser Ransomware work?

BlueCheeser Ransomware could have entered your operating system in several different ways. For example, its launcher could have been hidden within a bundled downloader. It is also possible that it was introduced to you as a harmless-looking file – such as a document or a photo – via spam email. When it comes to ransomware, in most cases, victims themselves are responsible for executing it, which is why you have to be extremely cautious about how you conduct yourself from the moment you turn on your computer. If you are careless, BlueCheeser Ransomware can slither in without you noticing it, and then it can encrypt all important files on the Desktop. If files are encrypted, the “.himr” extension should be added to their names. Next to them, you should find a file named “Instructions.txt,” which is dropped by the ransomware itself. Needless to say, all components associated with malware require removal, but this text file is harmless, and you can open it without facing security issues. That being said, paying attention to the messages introduced by cybercriminals is intrinsically dangerous.

The message that BlueCheeser Ransomware delivers does not actually make a whole lot of sense. It informs that files on the Desktop were encrypted and that you will not get them back unless you pay a ransom of $400. You are instructed to pay it to the 43IU64UGG645G37I670IITYYR5093U55KJ5HE Bitcoin wallet, but this is not the correct format of the wallet’s address, and so even if you wanted to take the risk of paying the ransom, you could not do it. This is good news for our malware researchers because that means that victims of BlueCheeser Ransomware will not be tricked into paying the ransom. The thing is that whether or not the payment can be made, you are unlikely to get anything in return for your money. The attackers behind this infection do not even have a way to identify you and send you a decryptor, which is why we are confident that paying the ransom would lead to nowhere. Sadly, decrypting files manually is not possible, and free decryptors were not able to decipher the encryptor used by the malware at the time of research. That means that the encrypted files are lost. Do you have backups? If you do, you have replacements!

How to remove BlueCheeser Ransomware

There are only two components that you need to find and erase if you want to delete BlueCheeser Ransomware manually. First is the launcher file, whose location is unknown. Second is the text file that is found on the Desktop. Obviously, if you are struggling to find and delete the launcher, you need to think carefully if that is the best removal option for you. You want to get rid of malware and secure your operating system as soon as possible, and that is why we strongly encourage you to implement anti-malware software. You might be intimidated to invest in such software, but investing in your own virtual security is important and necessary. BlueCheeser Ransomware is just one of many file-encrypting infections, and it is far from the worst of its kind. If you implement anti-malware software, it will automatically delete threats and also secure your system. You also want to create copies of ALL personal files (not just those on the Desktop) and store them outside the computer to ensure that you have backups in case anything happens to the originals ever again.
