Mbed Ransomware

What is Mbed Ransomware?

If you have opened this page, you probably have encountered Mbed Ransomware already, or at least you want to learn more about this dangerous infection. This program is similar to Toec Ransomware and Nols Ransomware. In fact, we could say that those programs are clones because there barely is any difference between them. It doesn’t mean, however, that you can relax right now. You still need to remove Mbed Ransomware from your system, and you need to look for ways to restore your files. But please remember that sometimes it can be impossible to decrypt your personal data.test

Where does Mbed Ransomware come from?

We have already mentioned programs that are similar to Mbed Ransomware. The reason they are similar is because they come from the same ransomware family – the STOP Ransomware group. When ransomware programs come from the same family, they usually exhibit similar behavioral patterns, and they display the same ransom notes that are created to push innocent users into spending their money for nothing.

Technically, this program says that you have to pay for the decryption key if you want to get your files back. Will you really get your files back? No one knows. There is no guarantee, really. Cybersecurity experts are vehemently against paying the ransom.

In some cases, files encrypted by programs from the STOP Ransomware family CAN be decrypted if they were encrypted using an offline key. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that’s the case with Mbed Ransomware. At least our research team says that currently it is not possible to decrypt the files affected by this program.

It might really mean that you would have to say bye-bye to your files and start building everything from scratch. At the same time, it is important to understand how ransomware programs spread around so that you wouldn’t get infected with the same stuff again.

For the most part, ransomware spreads through spam. Although most of the consumers are able to tell a decent email message from a spam email apart, they often think that ransomware wouldn’t target them, and thus, they end up opening a lot of dangerous emails. What’s more, Mbed Ransomware (or any other ransomware for that matter) wouldn’t reach you if you DIDN’T open the installer file. So why do users open them? That’s because that email comes with an urgent message that says the “documents” are important and they must be opened immediately. As a result, gullible users fall for it and get infected with Mbed Ransomware and other similar threats.

What does Mbed Ransomware do?

Mbed Ransomware runs a full system scan and locates all the files it can encrypt. Then it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that successfully scrambles the sequences of byte information within each file. After that, the system can no longer read the file and you cannot access your data because these sequences have been scrambled.

The experience can be daunting, especially as Mbed Ransomware also drops a ransom note, and that note gives you false hope, saying that you can restore your files if you purchase a decryption key:

All your files like photos, databases, documents and other important are encrypted with strongest encryption and unique key.

How do I remove Mbed Ransomware?

Although it might seem that paying the ransom is your only way to restore your files (in some cases, it might not be too far from the truth), we also have to remember that paying the ransom allows these criminals to create more malware. And we most certainly wouldn’t want to add up to that, now would we?

If you feel completely at a loss, do not hesitate to address a professional technician. There are definitely ways to get at least some of your files back. After you remove Mbed Ransomware (which you can do either manually or automatically), be sure to safeguard your system against other future threats.
