French MoWare H.F.D ransomware

What is French MoWare H.F.D ransomware?

French MoWare H.F.D ransomware is a dangerous computer infection that targets mainly the French-speaking computer users. However, it doesn’t mean that you cannot get infected with this program, too. If this application has found its way into your system, you have opened the right page because we will tell you how to remove French MoWare H.F.D ransomware for good.

Scroll down to the bottom of this description for the manual removal instructions and do not forget that the best way to deal with such infections is prevention. So please consider educating yourself on the ways ransomware apps spread around.

Where does French MoWare H.F.D ransomware come from?

Judging from what we have found, this application is practically identical to the previously released MoWare H.F.D ransomware. We discussed this infection last year, and it seems that its developers are still eager to attack innocent users around the world.

The good news is that French MoWare H.F.D ransomware is not a program that would have been created from scratch. It is based on the Hidden Tear ransomware, which is an open source program. It means that anyone can use the malicious code to create their own programs as long as they know how to acquire that code.

At the same time, when several programs are based on the same code, it means that we can more or less predict how they are going to behave. The only problem, however, that we cannot apply the same decryption tool for all the programs in the family because each program uses unique encryption keys to damage user’s files.

Aside from the source, we should also mention the distribution methods because if you know them, you will be able to protect yourself from similar intruders in the future. However, ransomware programs seldom employ something unexpected, and most of their distribution methods are similar.

As far as French MoWare H.F.D ransomware is concerned, this program usually spreads through spam emails and bundled downloads. That is a very common ransomware distribution method, and it is amazing how many users still manage to get infected with ransomware like that. After all, if you do not open a spam email attachment, you cannot get infected! So why would you open it?

The truth is that the spam emails that distribute French MoWare H.F.D ransomware often look like legitimate messages from online stores or financial institutions. So if users feel the urge to check the important “document” that is sent to them, they might overlook the potential threat of infection. So here’s a heads up for you: You can always SCAN the downloaded file before you open it. Use a licensed security tool to do that and perhaps you will save yourself the trouble of dealing with ransomware infections.

What does French MoWare H.F.D ransomware do?

Luckily, this program seems to be underdeveloped. Although we can see in its code that it targets most of the user’s files, it is very common that French MoWare H.F.D ransomware isn’t even able to encrypt the target files because something goes wrong in process.

Nevertheless, the infection will make a point to display a ransom note that says you have to pay 50 EUR within two days. If you fail to do as told, you will not be able to retrieve your files. Are those threats real? Hardly. It is very unlikely that French MoWare H.F.D ransomware would issue the decryption key even if you do manage to transfer the payment. Not to mention, let’s not forget that you most certainly do not need one as the infection will not be able to encrypt your files.
