Jdyi Ransomware

What is Jdyi Ransomware?

Weak Windows protection will not suffice against Jdyi Ransomware, a devious and clandestine file-encrypting threat that is looking for your personal files. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers, the threat could spread via spam emails and downloaders, and its launcher could be introduced in misleading ways to trick Windows users into executing malware themselves. The ransomware could also spread with the help of RDP vulnerabilities, and even separate infections could be used to assist. The truth is that cybercriminals have things covered when it comes to malware distribution, and they know all the tricks and security backdoors that can be of assistance. So, if this malware slithers in, you need to think not only about its removal but also about Windows protection. First, let’s figure out how to delete Jdyi Ransomware, and this article was created to help you with that. We have also opened the comments section below in case any questions pop up in your head while reading.test

How does Jdyi Ransomware work?

Jdyi Ransomware is not a unique infection, and it has simply repeated the steps of Vvoa Ransomware, Vpsh Ransomware, Agho Ransomware, and other well-known infections that are clones of the infamous STOP Ransomware. This is why malware scanners and malware removal tools usually identify the different variants by the same name. The attackers have their routines down, and so this malware is very predictable. Unfortunately, not stoppable yet. There is, however, a tool named ‘STOP Decryptor,’ and researchers have built it to offer free decryption. Unfortunately, our team warns that it does not help 100% of the time. So, if you are going to use this tool to attempt to decrypt the files, do not put too much hope into the affair. Of course, if your personal files were encrypted, and the “.jdyi” extension was attached to their names, not much else can be done. If the free decryptor does not work, perhaps you can replace the files with backup copies stored outside the infected computer? If that is not an option for you either, it might be easier to sway you in the wrong direction.

The attackers behind Jdyi Ransomware did not create this malware so that you would lose your personal files. They did that so that they could convince you to pay a ransom. A file named “_readme.txt” should be dropped after the encryption, and this file presents a message. The goal of it is to convince that the attackers can provide victims with a decryptor. Of course, that is not offered for free, and the standard price introduced by all STOP Ransomware infections is $490. Furthermore, this should be introduced as a discounted ransom, but do not assume that someone is offering you a good deal. Whether you pay $10 or $980 (which is, supposedly, the full price of the ransom), you will get nothing in return. Why? Well, cybercriminals do not care what happens with your files, and they do not want to share a decryptor with anyone. Can you get your money back after paying the ransom? Of course, you cannot. You might also not be able to restore full security if you email the attackers first, because once they know your email address, they can continue terrorizing you.

How to delete Jdyi Ransomware

We truly hope that you do not lose all personal files after facing Jdyi Ransomware. Hopefully, the free decryptor works for you, or you can employ backup copies stored outside to replace the encrypted files. Whichever method you employ, we hope you do not count the attackers’ offered decryptor as a valid method. So, are you ready to remove Jdyi Ransomware? If you want to eliminate the infection manually, perhaps you have already clocked the instructions below, but let us warn you that you are at risk of leaving malware components behind if you are not experienced, and your operating system will not become any stronger after you are done. Your system requires full-time protection against all kinds of malware, and only legitimate anti-malware software can offer that. So, should you install it after eliminating the threat? We suggest doing that beforehand because the right anti-malware software will swiftly eliminate all existing threats automatically.

Removal Instructions

  1. Delete the ransom note file named _readme.txt (should exist in the %HOMEDRIVE% directory).
  2. Delete suspicious files you might have downloaded recently (you can check the %USERPROFILE%\Desktop, %USERPROFILE%\Downloads, and %TEMP% directories first).
  3. Delete the ransomware-related {unknown name} folder (if it exists, you should find it in %LOCALAPPDATA% or %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\).
  4. Delete ransomware-related tasks (if they exist, they exist in %WINDIR%\System32\Tasks\).
  5. Empty Recycle Bin and then immediately scan the system for leftovers using a legitimate malware scanner.
