BOMBO Ransomware

What is BOMBO Ransomware?

You must be aware that ransomware is spreading across the world. BOMBO Ransomware is just one of the many file-encrypting infections that can slither into your operating system if you open the door. Of course, you are tricked into doing that by opening spam email attachments/links or downloading files from unreliable websites. In some cases, however, action from you is not needed at all. The attackers can use other threats and existing vulnerabilities to distribute malware without your notice. Once the ransomware is in, it can encrypt photos, music files, and documents, videos, and everything else that you might keep close to your heart. Well, unless you have copies of your personal files stored somewhere safe, you are in trouble. Once files are encrypted, the data is scrambled, and that makes files unreadable. The attackers hope that this would be enough to make you pay a ransom. Instead, you should focus on deleting BOMBO Ransomware. Your files cannot be recovered by performing successful removal, but your security can be restored.test

How does BOMBO Ransomware work?

BOMBO Ransomware is not a unique threat. It is a copycat of Dharma Ransomware or Crysis Ransomware. The creator of this ransomware made the malware code accessible to anyone, and that is why we have seen hundreds of threats using it. Although the BOMBO variant is not identical to GTF Ransomware, NCOV Ransomware, and all other threats alike, there are more similarities than there are differences. For one, they use the same security backdoors to slither into unguarded, vulnerable Windows operating systems. Of course, if a system was guarded, malware could not execute and conduct malicious attacks. If BOMBO Ransomware manages to slither in without detection, it is not removed in time, and files get encrypted. To make it easy for you to spot them, the threat adds the “.id-{ID code}.[].BOMBO” extension. You can delete it, but there is no point. Once files are encrypted, only a decryptor can restore them, and while free Dharma and Crysis decryptors exist, we cannot know if they will work for you. Of course, you should at least try them out before you pay any attention to the message delivered by the attackers.

A window named “” is opened as soon as BOMBO Ransomware is done corrupting your personal files. This window includes a message, according to which, you need to contact the attackers by sending them an email to The message also declares that renaming files or using third-party decryptors can result in the loss of files or the increase of the “price.” What does that mean? Undoubtedly, if you email the attackers, they will push you to pay money in return for the a decryptor, a password, or something else. This is why this malware is known as ransomware. Sadly, some people are tricked into thinking that they can trust the attackers, but of course, once the ransom is paid, these people get nothing in return. So, if you do not want to waste money, we do not recommend paying the ransom or even contacting the attackers. You do not need to do that if you can use the free decryptor, or better yet, if you can replace the corrupted files with backup copies.

How to delete BOMBO Ransomware

Are you determined to remove BOMBO Ransomware manually? If you are, note that the process is not as straightforward as you might think it is. First of all, the launcher of the infection could be anywhere. On top of that, at least one .exe file has a random name, and if you are unable to identify it among legitimate, harmless files, you might accidentally remove the wrong things. In general, manual removal is not something we recommend undertaking because the elimination of BOMBO Ransomware is not the only thing you need to think about. The overall security of your operating system is important too, and if you want to take care of it, we suggest implementing anti-malware software. Not only will it secure your system but also automatically delete all existing threats. Afterward, we hope, you can use a free decryptor or your own copies. Note that you must always create copies of all personal files because you never know what could happen in the future.
