What is Junior Ransomware?

Junior Ransomware is a malicious computer infection that falls into the regular description of a ransomware program. It means that this program will encrypt your personal files, and then it will ask you to pay a ransom fee in order to restore those files. You probably know already that paying the ransom is not an option. You should remove Junior Ransomware from your system as soon as possible. To make it easier, get yourself a powerful security application that will terminate the infection for you automatically. As far as the file recovery options are concerned, be sure to address a professional about it.testtest

Where does Junior Ransomware come from?

It is very common that we cannot pinpoint the exact distribution source for most of the ransomware infections. We know more or less how they spread, but we cannot just point a finger at a particular server and say, here’s the culprit.

Instead, to avoid the likes of Junior Ransomware, we have to learn more about ransomware distribution patterns. So, as far as we know, this infection can be distributed via spam emails and unsafe RDP channels. In a sense, it also means that the target user ALLOWS this infection to enter their machine. Of course, users are not aware of the fact they install these dangerous infections on their computers because they think the installer files are something else.

Why would they think that? Because spam emails that deliver the dangerous files often look like official notifications from reliable companies. Sometimes the ransomware installers look like legitimate document files you are asked to open ASAP. However, this urgent tone should be something that actually STOPS you from opening those files because it is the first sign that something is off. Also, don’t forget that you can always scan the received files with a security tool before opening them. If you scan those files, you would definitely be able to prevent the infection.

What does Junior Ransomware do?

This ransomware is very similar to any other ransomware infection that we might encounter in the wild. Our research team says that this program is a newer version of the Paradise Ransomware infection. Both programs are very similar behavior wise, but they have certain differences in their interfaces.

When Junior Ransomware enters your computer, it obviously scans the machine looking for the files it can encrypt. That’s something that all ransomware programs do. When the encryption is complete, all the affected files receive a new appendix to their names. Junior Ransomware does not change the original filename; it only adds a longer appendix with an email address you should use to contact the criminals behind this infection. It should also be noted that part of the appendix added to the affected files is unique for every single affected user. Not to mention that every affected folder receives a ransom note that says the following:

All your files was encrypted!
Paradise Team!


- All important data that was stored on this computer have been stolen due a security problem.
- If you want to back them, just write to us by email,.
- You have to pay in Bitcoins.
- After payment we will send you the software for decrypt that will back all your files.

From this ransom note, you cannot even know how much Junior Ransomware will ask you to pay for the decryption key. However, just as mentioned above, you should not even entertain this option. First, there is no guarantee these people would unlock the files. And second, paying the ransom would only help these criminals make more ransomware programs.

How do I remove Junior Ransomware?

This ransomware does not drop additional files, and it doesn’t create a Point of Execution. It means that you can remove it from your system by deleting the file that launched the infection. If you do not want to do that on your own, remove Junior Ransomware with an automated antispyware tool.

As for your files, there shouldn’t be a problem if you have a file backup. If not, please consider going through your other devices and your various online accounts that might contain most of your recent files. Please do not feel discouraged if you have to start building your file library from scratch.
