Comrade HT Ransomware can sneak onto your system and take all your important files hostage if you were to keep them in default directories, such as Documents, Pictures, and Videos. Our malware experts at say that this is a dangerous ransomware program that you should take seriously since you may lose all the files it encrypts.

Unfortunately though, there is no guarantee that you will really get the key even if you pay. It is always risky to deal with cyber criminals and you should definitely take this into account before making up your mind and decide on your next move.

Where does Comrade HT Ransomware come from?

Our malware experts say that this malicious program is built on the famous Hidden Tear Ransomware, an open-source malware program used by several cyber criminals to build their own variants. If you find this dangerous infection on your system, it can mean only one thing: You must have opened a spam e-mail recently. This spam has an attachment, which is the malicious file itself but in disguise, of course, so that you cannot easily recognize it as such. This e-mail may appear to be completely legitimate to you and what is more, you will have the feeling that you must see its content right away. This is achieved by simply touching on sensitive issues that most of us could relate to: unpaid parking fine, wrongly made online booking, and so on. These topics would trigger anyone really to want to see what this mail has to say. However, this mail will simply refer to the attached file, so victims make the wrong choice of actually checking it out. Please note that you will not be able to delete Comrade HT Ransomware without your files having been encrypted. Prevention is the only way to prepare for such an attack because after the damage is done, there may not be a way out for you to recover your files.

How does Comrade HT Ransomware work?

This ransomware program attacks your files stored within "%USERPROFILE%" directory and these subfolders: Desktop, Documents, Pictures, and Videos. Clearly, you may lose all your images, videos, music files, documents, databases, and more. You can easily find out the extent of this devastation if you search your hard disk for files with ".comrade" extension. This malware infection creates a text file named "DECRYPT_FILES.txt" on your desktop, which is the ransom note itself.

This malicious threat does not replace your desktop background or display a full-screen application window to lock your screen. Its ransom note is very simple and to the point. You have to pay $480 in Bitcoins (approx. 0.0673 Bitcoins at the moment) within 24 hours. If you do not transfer the ransom fee, your unique decryption key will be deleted and the recovery of your files will be impossible. You have to send this fee to "1Nw1qXBqV2CBUZ53aLyzD71XkzDYc6bXe5" and then, send an e-mail to "" Of course, we do not recommend that you do so. You may easily lose your money, too, since there is little chance that these criminals will send you anything other than further malware programs.
