Nbes Ransomware

What is Nbes Ransomware?

Nbes Ransomware doesn’t need something sophisticated to enter your system. This malicious infection usually slithers into the target computers via a spam attachment, and users are left scared and confused when their files get encrypted with a military-grade algorithm.

Although it is possible to remove Nbes Ransomware from the victim’s computer without too much, it is your files that require more attention. Please note that there is always a chance that it might not be possible to recover all of your data. Thus, it simply proves how dangerous ransomware infections are, and we should never take them lightly.test

Where does Nbes Ransomware come from?

Nbes Ransomware belongs to the same group of infections as Hets Ransomware and Alka Ransomware. These are the newest additions to the STOP Ransomware family. All these programs use the same ransom note and the same encryption mechanism.

They also employ similar distribution methods, so we can surely say that users download and install Nbes Ransomware themselves, although it is clear that they are not aware of that. Now, why does that happen? That’s because these ransomware programs employ smart tactics to reach their victims.

We should all be careful about the files we receive from unknown and unfamiliar senders. Even if those files look like legitimate documents, it is very easy to fall into a trap. For instance, the spam email that carries Nbes Ransomware might look like an online shopping invoice or like some financial report. Thus, it might be that you would open those files without any second thought.

However, it is strongly recommended to scan the received files with a security tool before you open them. Even if you open such files every single day, one slip is all it takes for Nbes Ransomware to slither in.

What does Nbes Ransomware do?

Since Nbes Ransomware is a ransomware infection, it goes without saying that it holds your files hostage and demands that you pay a ransom fee for the decryption tool. All the files that get encrypted by this program receive the .nbes extension at the end of their filenames. This extension is like a stamp that says your files have been affected by Nbes Ransomware. At the same time, you don’t really need the additional extension to see that something is wrong. Once the file information inside is scrambled, the system can no longer read them, and so all the file icons will change to blank paper icons.

When the encryption is complete, Nbes Ransomware will drop ransom notes in the TXT format files to every single folder than contains encrypted files. Here’s an extract from the said note:


Don’t worry, you can return all your files!
All your files like photos, databases, documents and other important are encrypted with strongest encryption and unique key.
What guarantees you have?
You can send one of your encrypted file from your PC and we decrypt it for free.
But we can decrypt only 1 file for free. File must not contain valuable information.

The ransom note also goes on to say that if you contact these criminals within the first 72 hours, you will get a discount for the decryption tool. Of course, you should never pay anything to these criminals. There is a public decryption tool available that works on files that were encrypted by STOP Ransomware family infections using the offline key. Please note that it might work only on certain files, and it doesn’t mean that you can immediately restore all of your data.

How do I remove Nbes Ransomware?

Removing ransomware is not that complicated because these programs seldom drop multiple malicious files on-board. You just need to follow the manual removal instructions to terminate the infection. However, if you feel that manual ransomware removal is too challenging, you can delete Nbes Ransomware with an automated antispyware tool.

As for your files, if you have a file backup, you can simply delete the infected files and then transfer the healthy copies back into your computer. If you do not have a file backup, check your inbox and your mobile device – maybe you have the latest files saved there. For more comprehensive file recovery options, be sure to address a local professional.
