Iiss Ransomware

What is Iiss Ransomware?

If you have time to secure your Windows operating system against Iiss Ransomware, make use of it. This dangerous infection can be extremely painful to deal with because it can successfully encrypt every single personal file found on the corrupted system. That includes work presentations, projects, and documents, as well as personal photos or videos. Perhaps you could restore some of them from your work computer, using your own backups, or with the help of colleagues, friends, and family, who might have their own copies. However, if you are unable to replace the encrypted files, you might be unable to get them back in any other way. Should you not purchase a file decryptor offered by the cybercriminals behind this malware? Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers suggest that you should not. What we recommend figuring out instead is how to delete Iiss Ransomware. Although this malware does not seem to repeat encryption attacks, you want to remove it as soon as possible.test

How does Iiss Ransomware work?

Before it can start working, Iiss Ransomware has to invade your system. Our researchers warn that different methods could be used to perform the invasion successfully, but some of the more frequent ones include spreading malware using RDP vulnerabilities, spam emails, and malicious downloaders. So, if you can patch vulnerabilities and also stay away from spam and malicious downloaders, perhaps you can evade Iiss Ransomware as well. The same goes for Foqe Ransomware, Efji Ransomware, Kasp Ransomware, Boop Ransomware, and all other clones of the infection. They are generally known as STOP Ransomware clones. If the invasion is successful, the infection can encrypt your files, and after that is done, you cannot read your files, and the “.iiss” extension should be appended to their names. For example, a file originally named “windows.jpg” should appear as “windows.jpg.iiss” after encryption. Of course, you can delete the added extension, but there is no point in doing that. To decrypt your files, you have to unscramble the data, and that cannot be done without a decryptor. As it turns out, malware researchers have created a free STOP Decryptor, but it cannot decrypt all files corrupted by all STOP Ransomware clones.

The attackers behind Iiss Ransomware are hoping that you do not learn about the free decryptor, or that it does not work, and they are hoping that backup copies do not exist either. If that is the case, they can try selling their own decryptor. A file named “_readme.txt” is dropped by the infection, and the text represented via it informs that if victims email helpmanager@mail.ch and/or restoremanager@airmail.cc and then pay the ransom of $490 (goes up to $980 in three days), they can obtain a decryptor. There is no proof or guarantee that you would be provided with a decryptor, and so we warn you that contacting the attackers and paying the ransom is a terrible idea. You cannot plead with cybercriminals, and since they do not care about what happens with your personal files, you should not expect any help from them.

How to delete Iiss Ransomware

Whether you pay the ransom, use a free decryptor, or replace the corrupted files with your own backup copies, you must remove Iiss Ransomware. By the way, if you are going to use the free decryptor or copies, you should eliminate the infection first. So, how do you go about this?
