EnyBeny Ransomware

What is EnyBeny Ransomware?

EnyBeny Ransomware is a version of EnybenyCrypt Ransomware. Its older versions could encrypt data or even delete files later on, but it looks like this version is not yet fully developed. According to our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com, it only changes user’s Desktop image and drops numerous copies of its ransom note all over the computer. Given it does not encrypt data yet, and users would have no reason to agree with any of the hackers’ demands, we doubt the malicious program could be distributed widely. Still, we do not say it is entirely impossible. In case you do encounter this version of EnyBeny Ransomware, we advise removing it with no hesitation. The instructions available below should help you get rid of it manually, and if you wish to know more details about the threat, we invite you to keep reading our article.testtest

Where does EnyBeny Ransomware come from?

If EnyBeny Ransomware is being spread it could travel with malicious email attachments or program installers. A lot of similar threats reach their victims through Spam emails and unreliable file-sharing websites, which is why we advise staying away from content coming from such sources as much as possible. However, if you think you have to, at least check it with a legitimate antimalware tool first. The scan will only take a moment, and once it is over, you will know whether you should or should not launch the suspicious data. In the event, the suspected file would carry ransomware capable of encrypting files you would avoid losing your personal records. As you see, usually once the data gets encrypted it becomes unusable.

How does EnyBeny Ransomware work?

It looks like EnyBeny Ransomware has capabilities to encrypt data, but for some reason, the malicious application does not do so yet. If it was encrypting files, it would most likely stay silent until the process is over and only then reveal its presence. The malware announces about it infecting the computer by replacing the user’s Desktop image. The new picture ought to say your files were encrypted by Enybeny Nuclear, which could be its second title. The rest of the message does not make much sense.

On the other hand, the ransom notes (Hack.txt) that should be created on all various folders provides detail instructions instead. According to EnyBeny Ransomware’s developers, the victim can buy decryption tools in exchange for a particular amount of Bitcoins. For further instructions, the user should be asked to contact them via email. It might be irrelevant in this case, but we would like to stress that dealing with cybercriminals might be a bad idea and we always recommend against it. You can never know if they will hold on to their word and will not start to ask for more money, so if you ever come across a more vicious threat, you should consider the option very carefully.
