FlyBox Ransomware

What is FlyBox Ransomware?

FlyBox Ransomware might need an invitation to slither into your operating system. Of course, it conceals itself first to ensure that you are not able to identify a security threat immediately. The infection can be concealed as a document file, and it could be sent to you via email or perhaps even social media platforms. The message accompanying the attachment should intrigue you and make you want to click it. The threat is unlikely to execute immediately, and you might have to click other buttons or accept certain demands first. For example, you might be asked to enable macros. If you do that, the infection executes silently. Fake updates and stealthy bundled downloaders could be employed as well. In any case, the infection is meant to trick you, and if it is successful, your files might be corrupted irreversibly. Should you remove FlyBox Ransomware to recover the files? This malware must be deleted, but do not expect for the files to be fully restored with this action.test

How does FlyBox Ransomware work?

According to our research team, FlyBox Ransomware is similar to Npph Ransomware, Copa Ransomware, Eknkfwovyzb Ransomware, and other well-known file-encryptors. Here at, we test all file-encryptors, and we can say that there are more similarities between them than differences. Once they invade systems, they immediately encrypt files, and most of them add unique extensions to the files’ names to mark them. FlyBox Ransomware adds the “.FlyBox” extension. In fact, most threats are named after the extensions that are appended to the corrupted files. While some file-encryptors are able to corrupt system files – which usually forces the victims to reinstall systems – most only encrypt personal files. The infection we are discussing also only encrypt documents, pictures, and similar files. The purpose is not to make your system inoperable but to make you want to pay a ransom. After encryption, a window entitled “Your Files Encrypted v3.3” is launched, and it is meant to convince you that you can restore all files with a small payment.

The message in the window starts with the “ATTENTION!!! All Your Files Have Been Encrypted!” alert. It then informs that AES-256 and RSA-2048 encryption algorithms were used for the encryption process. The message poses the question of whether or not files can be recovered, and this question is immediately answered with this statement: “We guarantee that you can recover all your files safety and easily,But you have to pay for decryption in Bitcoin.” This is nothing new, and most ransomware threats demand ransoms in Bitcoin. This threat, however, has set the ransom at only $80, which is a relatively small sum. You are meant to purchase Bitcoins ($80 was 0.0074 BTC at the time of research) and transfer the payment to the attackers’ Bitcoin Wallet. Its address is 1MkdmGEu9vTjqRYrFp4TWbsSK9SjECTbGD, and this wallet was empty at the time we checked it. After the payment, you are meant to email to confirm the transaction, and that is when a decryptor should be sent to you. It should, but it is unlikely that it would. Therefore, we do not recommend paying the ransom or even communicating with the attackers.

How to remove FlyBox Ransomware

When we analyzed FlyBox Ransomware, a free decryptor that could decipher it did not exist. That means that restoring files, as of now, is not possible. Replacing files might be possible, but of course, only if you have something to replace them with. Have you created backups/copies of personal files and stored them online or on external drives? If you have, you can replace the corrupted files, but you must delete FlyBox Ransomware first. Can you do it manually? According to our research team, there is only one file that needs to be erased, and it is found in the %TEMP% directory. Perhaps this file has a unique name, but even if you cannot identify it, feel free to delete everything from this directory. That will not hurt your system. Of course, we believe that implementing anti-malware software is the better choice. Not only can it automatically remove malicious components but also protect your system against their invasion in the future.
