Boop Ransomware

What is Boop Ransomware?

What do you do if Boop Ransomware encrypts personal files? You might try to decrypt them yourself. You might look for third-party decryption tools. You might rush to check your backups to see if you have copies of your documents, photos, videos, and other precious, important files. Whatever you do, do not act out of panic and fear. That is what the cybercriminals behind this malware are looking for, and if you give them the opportunity to scam you, they will take it. Even checking the backups could be risky if you do it via an infected system because there are some threats that are capable of encrypting backups too! So, our research team suggests that you figure out how to delete Boop Ransomware first. Once that is taken care of, we hope that you can restore or replace your files and also secure your system to prevent new malware from invading it.test

How does Boop Ransomware work?

We do not want to blame you for the invasion of Boop Ransomware, but there is a chance that you have been involved in this process. First of all, how good is your system’s security? If you have not taken care of it, you can blame no one but yourself for malware invasion. Second, how have you acted online recently? Have you opened files attached to spam emails? Have you downloaded files using strange installers? Have you visited unreliable websites? Cybercriminals know how to spread malware, and they are often using the targets themselves to aid in execution. If there is no security system to stop malware, it silently encrypts all personal files found. Once that is done, you can find the “.boop” extension attached to their names. This extension is used as a tag to help victims understand the vastness of damage. This is also the single discernible feature that separates Boop Ransomware from its clones, which include Geno Ransomware, Usam Ransomware, or Odgo Ransomware. According to our team, these infections were built from STOP Ransomware.

Although Boop Ransomware is all about destroying files with encryption, it also creates one file, and it is named “_readme.txt.” According to our team, you should find it in the %HOMEDRIVE% directory. What is this file about? Since it is a text file, obviously, it presents text, and that is the ransom note. The attackers behind the threat are using this file to inform victims that decryption of the files is possible, but only if they first email and then pay for the combo of a decryption tool and a unique key. Just like the ransom notes of all STOP Ransomware clones, the one introduced by Boop Ransomware suggests that the original price for the tool is $980, but those who choose to pay within 72 hours are awarded a 50% discount, which puts the ransom at $490. Do not be fooled by this “generous” offer. The attackers want your money, and they are feeding you lies and false promises to get it. If you think that a decryptor will magically fall into your lap once you pay the ransom, you have been misled.
