Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware

What is Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware?

A new crypto-malware was detected. Specialists from the cybersecurity department gave it a name Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware. Since its primary language is German, they suspect that it mainly targets German-speaking users. Of course, we cannot guarantee that users who do not speak this language are safe because this ransomware infection is spread via spam emails and can reach users regardless the language they speak or the country they live in. Without a doubt, Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware is one of those infections that have been designed to lock users’ files, so the entrance of this malicious application is never pleasant. There is a bunch of ransomware infections that can make it impossible to access pictures, documents, music, videos, and other personal files; however, you can be sure that Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware is the one that has infiltrated your computer if you can find a new file Wo_sind_meine_Dateien.html in every location containing files you can no longer open. In such a case, you need to remove the ransomware infection from your computer right away. It is not one of those sophisticated threats, so its removal will consist of only two steps: 1) killing the malicious process and 2) the removal of all suspicious files downloaded recently.

What does Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware do?

Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware does not differ much from other crypto-threats developed seeking to obtain money from users because it also goes to ruin users’ files immediately after the successful infiltration. Even though the ransom note it drops after restricting access to files claims that they have been “encrypted with a military-grade256-bit AES algorithm,” researchers say that it is more likely that it corrupts them instead of encrypting them. The .html (Wo_sind_meine_Dateien.html) file, which is the so-called ransom note, tells users what has happened to their files (“as you’ve already noticed, all your files have been encrypted”) and then explains how they can get a decryption key and special software in order to fix affected files. Just like a bunch of other ransomware infections, it demands a ransom. Its size might change, but, at the time of writing, it was 0.12 Bitcoin (~960 USD). Users must make a payment within 7 days. We are sure there are some important files among those affected by Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware, but we cannot let you pay money to its developer because the chances are high that cyber criminals will only take your money and will not give you the special tool to fix them. Sadly, you could not force them to send it to you in any way and, on top of that, they will not give you back the money sent to them. We want to emphasize that the only way to get files back for free right now is to restore them from a backup. The backup must be located outside the system.

Where does Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware come from?

Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware has already been detected on a handful of computers, so specialists already have some information about its distribution. They say that it is mainly spread as a decent-looking file; however, it is still possible to tell that it is malicious because it has two extensions (.pdf and .exe), for example, Viktoria Henschel - Bewerbung - November.pdf.exe and Viktoria Henschel - Lebenslauf - November.pdf.exe. Users usually download these files as attachments from spam emails and thus contaminate their computers. We want to emphasize that a bunch of harmful infections are distributed via spam emails, so you should stay away from them all. Of course, there are other methods to spread harmful infections, so we cannot promise that it will always be easy to prevent them from entering the system. Because of this, we recommend that you enable a security application on your computer after the full Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware removal.

How to remove Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware

Some ransomware infections are very sophisticated and make a bunch of modifications on those computers they affect, but, luckily, Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware is not one of them. Consequently, you will remove it by killing the malicious process associated with it and deleting suspicious recently downloaded files from main directories (%USERPROFILE%\Desktop, %USERPROFILE%\Downloads, and %TEMP%). Without a doubt, it is not the only way to delete this infection from the system. It can be erased using an automated malware remover too. It is a considerably quicker and easier removal method if compared to the manual one.
