What is Ransomware? Ransomware is a malicious application that has locked files on your computer if they have all received the V.{}.paradise filename extension. We consider this threat dangerous malicious software because it mercilessly encrypts almost all files it manages to find on the affected computer. Luckily, it does not encrypt any system files, so your Windows operating system will not be ruined. It does not lock users’ personal files just for fun. Instead, it seems that it also tries to obtain money from users like similar infections categorized as ransomware: “You have to pay for decryption in Bitcoins. The price depends on how fast you write to us.” We have to admit that there might be no other ways to get files back if files have already been locked by ransomware because they use strong ciphers to encrypt data, but it does not mean that you should send money to malicious software developers.

What does Ransomware do?

All ransomware infections are similar to each other. The main thing that unities them all is that they are all developed to obtain something from users, usually their money.

Cyber criminals promise to decrypt some files for free as a proof that they have the special decryptor that can unlock files. You can send 1-3 files for the free decryption, but you should not pay a ransom for the decryption of the rest of your data no matter how badly you need it. The price of the decryption is unknown, but we are sure you will get more information if you contact cyber criminals by email ( or

Where does Ransomware come from?

According to researchers at, Ransomware should be mainly distributed via malicious attachments that can be found inside spam emails. In this case, it enters the system when the email attachment is opened by the user. Without a doubt, the first symptom that the entrance of the ransomware infection was successful is encrypted files on the system. Try not to freak out once you find them locked because it does not mean you cannot get them back. If you have backed up your files regularly, you could restore encrypted data in no time. Unfortunately, there are no other ways to unlock data for free if you have never created any backup.
