Juwon Ransomware

What is Juwon Ransomware?

You might be under the impression that Juwon Ransomware has encrypted your entire operating system, but that is far from the truth. The worst it can do is encrypt your personal files, and your computer is just fine. Of course, the encryption of personal data can be just as devastating, if not more, because while you can always reinstall Windows or buy another computer, you might not be able to recover your personal photos, videos, or documents. So, is there no solution to the problem? At this point, Anti-Spyware-101.com research team informs that it is not possible to decrypt the files corrupted by this malware. The good news is, it does not look like this malware is currently spreading in the wild. We assume that because the sample tested in our lab did not even encrypt files. Although that is good news, malware can be updated at any point, and it is important to secure all operating systems against it. Whether or not you need to delete Juwon Ransomware from your Windows system at this particular moment, we suggest that you keep reading.test

How does Juwon Ransomware work?

Juwon Ransomware is in the same category as BSS Ransomware, Scarab-Lolita Ransomware, and BlackWorm Ransomware. All of these infections are ransomware, which means that they attack and demand money in return for something that the victim needs. In most cases, that “something” is a decryption tool that, allegedly, can restore files. The so-called “decryptor” is offered to the victims of Juwon Ransomware too. According to the message that is displayed via a window launched after the threat should encrypt files, a decryptor is needed along with a password if the victim wants to restore files. Although a decryptor should exist, in theory, you should not rely on cyber attackers to give it to you. In fact, we suggest you forget about it altogether because you will not get it. This is not the only lie that the ransom note exposes victims to. It also claims that if the infection’s window was closed or if the password was not entered within 24 hours, the computer would be destroyed. Do not pay any attention to that, and focus on the removal of the infection. If you do not delete it, you will be exposed to the ridiculous ransom demands that, in fact, should be ignored.

Of course, less experienced users might fall for the trick and pay a ransom in Bitcoins to the cyber criminals’ bitcoin wallet (12t9YDPgwueZ9NyMgw519p7AA8lsjr65Mw). You should not do that because your files will not be recovered when you do that. At the time of research, it was not possible to make the payment anyway because it was not clear how much money was requested. The message says “Purchase Bitcoin 10,” but we are sure that does not mean that the ransom is 10 Bitcoin. At the time of research, 10 Bitcoin was over 36,000 USD. The ransom message does list an email address (seojuwon0622@gmail.com), which victims might use to ask for clarification. You need to be careful if you decide to email cyber criminals, because they might try to scam you now or later, in the future.

How to delete Juwon Ransomware

You want to remove Juwon Ransomware regardless of what has happened to your personal files. In the best case situation, they are not encrypted at all, and you can check that once you close the ransom window. If your files are encrypted, you are in a worse position because you do not have any way of decrypting files. Hopefully, backup copies exist, and you can access your files. You should do that only after you delete Juwon Ransomware from your operating system. Eliminating it from your operating system might be a difficult process if you have no clue where to find the launcher of the threat. Where is it? What is it called? We do not know this. The good news is that if you are not able to remove the threat manually, you can use anti-malware software. The best part is that once you employ this software, it also can ensure full-time protection against other threats. It’s a win-win situation no doubt.
