Mc Ransomware

What is Mc Ransomware?

Whether or not you are familiar with Minecraft, you should be surprised when MC Ransomware shows up on your operating system and displays a window with an image from the popular video game. This infection introduces itself to the victims as a ransomware via the title of the window, but the reality is that it does not act like one. Does that mean that it is harmless and that you can ignore it? It certainly does not. Any infection or unfamiliar program that manages to slither in without notice or permission must be investigated and looked at carefully. After analyzing this “ransomware,” our research team has come to a conclusion that it is not dangerous, at the moment, but it could become malicious in the future. Therefore, removing it as soon as possible is recommended. Do not worry if you have no clue how to delete MC Ransomware from your operating system because our malware analysts are here to help.

How does MC Ransomware work?

MC Ransomware was created by the same party who are responsible for Pubg Ransomware and Csgo Ransomware. Both of these infections are based on video games too, and they also display images that are associated with them. Unfortunately, it was found that one of them – Pubg Ransomware, to be more specific – can encrypt files using the AES algorithm. Does that mean that MC Ransomware could start corrupting personal data on the systems it invades too? That we cannot know at this point, but everything is possible, and so you need to be careful. If the infection has not found its way into your operating system yet – which it could do using malicious installers, other infections, or various security vulnerabilities – you need to make sure that the protection of your operating system is strengthened. If this malware has invaded your PC already, you have to make sure to delete it immediately. The same goes for all other threats that were created by the same cyber criminals or that work in the same ways. Needless to say, all threats capable of doing harm to your personal files require immediate removal.

When MC Ransomware gets in, there are two things it does. First, it displays the window that represents an image from Minecraft. This we have established already. The second thing this malware does is it checks for a process of the game. It appears that the infection is not complete, and when/if it is, it might ask its victims to play Minecraft for a certain period of time. At this moment, we cannot say what exactly cyber criminals would ask to do this in return for. In any case, it should not be difficult for you to just close the window launched by MC Ransomware by clicking the “X” button on the top-right corner. If that is not possible for you, launch Task Manager (tap Ctrl+Alt+Delete and select), move to the Processes tab, and terminate the process representing the ransomware. If this process exists, you can right-click it and select Open File Location to find the .exe file that must be removed. Hopefully, you can find this file; otherwise, you will not be able to remove the malicious infection yourself.
