'Insane@airmail.cc' Ransomware

What is 'Insane@airmail.cc' Ransomware?

'Insane@airmail.cc' Ransomware, also known as InsaneCrypt Ransomware, is a new threat to your files, which can sneak onto your computer behind you back and encrypt all your important files. Our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that this ransomware program may actually be decryptable, which could mean that your files could be recovered. However, there is no free tool yet available that you could use to recover your files, but it is quite likely to surface in the near future. These attackers want you to contact them for further detail on payment since the ransom note is rather short and lacking information. We have no information yet as to the amount of the ransom fee but we do not advise you to pay any money, either. It would be a waste if you consider the possibility that a free decryptor may emerge soon and it is not even guaranteed that these cyber criminals keep their word and send you the decryption key. We advise you to remove 'Insane@airmail.cc' Ransomware immediately if you want to use your computer.test

Where does 'Insane@airmail.cc' Ransomware come from?

The most likely way for this dangerous infection to slither onto your system is via spam campaigns. Although you may believe that you would never even click to open a spam, let us warn you that spam mails nowadays are very tricky and deceiving. It is quite likely that you would think that it is a legitimate mail simply by looking at the sender. But when you see the subject line, it is even more likely that you will want to see the content since these criminals can use a subject that would wake up your curiosity right away. This spam may claim to contain information about a questionable online booking made with your credit card, an issues with your banking details given while booking online, an unpaid invoice, and so on. Why would you doubt such a mail? Why would you think that it is unreliable, let alone downright dangerous to open it? Well, to be frank, if you do not feel related to the subject, you should doubt it right away. It is safer to contact the sender and inquire about this mail then to open it and view the attachment. This attached file is indeed the malicious executable file that can start up and encrypt all your important files the moment you save it and run it on your computer. Do not be misled by the fact that this attachment may pose as a document or an image. This file may even use a false file type icon to trick you. It should be clear by now that by the time you get to the point that you can delete 'Insane@airmail.cc' Ransomware from your system, your files will be encrypted. In most cases, this also means that you could lose your files in the attack.

How does 'Insane@airmail.cc' Ransomware work?

Once you activate this dangerous threat, it targets your most valuable files and encrypts them with possibly the RSA-2048 algorithm. Cyber villains usually encrypt your photos, videos, audios, databases, and archives to cause the most possible damage to you. All this for money, of course, i.e., so that they can extort money from you in exchange for the decryption key or software. The affected files get a ".[insane@airmail.cc].insane" extension, which clearly identifies your infection. This ransomware infection, similarly to many other, drops a .txt file in all affected directories, which is the ransom note and is called "How_decrypt_files.txt."

This note is probably one of the shortest and least informative we have seen so far. It simply states that if you want to restore your encrypted files, you have to write an e-mail to "insane@airmail.cc" and that is all. It is quite likely that these villains want you to pay the ransom fee in Bitcoins since this is the mostly used crypto currency when it comes to such cyber attacks. However, the amount is not yet known. But it does not even matter since it is always risky to pay such criminals. You should know that there is only a slight chance that you will get anything in return other than further infections. Still, there might be a silver lining in this case as malware hunters have already pointed out that this ransomware may be decryptable and a free decryption tool could surface any day now, if it has not yet. Of course, we would not recommend that you try to download and use this tool yourself unless you have the right IT skills. But it is important that you remove 'Insane@airmail.cc' Ransomware right away so that you can use your computer.
