Noos Ransomware

What is Noos Ransomware?

An extension called .noos on your files most likely means that you have encountered a threat called Noos Ransomware. It is a malicious tool that encrypts data and marks it with the mentioned extension. Meaning, files with the .noos extension should be unreadable. The only way to fix them is to decrypt them with special software. If you are a victim of this threat, you most likely already saw a ransom note in which the threat’s developers claim to have needed decryption tools and offer them if you pay. If you do not want to put up with any demands, you should know that cybersecurity experts managed to create a decryptor that might be able to restore your files free of charge. It is worth a try if you do not back up your data and have no other means to get it back. We discuss the malware in detail further, in this article, so if you want to learn more, we encourage you to keep reading. Also, a bit below the text, you can find instructions showing how to remove Noos Ransomware manually.test

Where does Noos Ransomware come from?

Noos Ransomware is one of those malicious applications that victims get tricked into installing. Usually, they travel with emails, other types of messages, unreliable file-sharing websites, and so on. In other words, the malware’s installer could be obtained from an unknown sender or an untrustworthy site. This is why we advise scanning files you come across while surfing the Internet or receive from people you do not know with a legitimate antimalware tool. It is a quick and easy way to find out if data is malicious or not without putting your computer at risk. Our researchers at say that malicious data might be disguised to appear harmless, so users should not trust files from unreliable sources even if they look like text files or pictures.

How does Noos Ransomware work?

The malicious application works silently, so a victim may not notice that his computer got infected until he sees that some of his files have the .noos extension or finds the malware’s ransom note (_readme.txt). According to it, all files were encrypted with “strongest encryption and unique key.” In truth, Noos Ransomware does not encrypt all data on a computer; otherwise, it could become unbootable, for example, it could happen if data associated with the device’s operating system would become unreadable.

The files the malware ought to encrypt could be any data that is not related to the operating system or other software installed on a computer. In a way, it is even worse as programs can be reinstalled, while family photos could be lost forever if a user does not have a backup. Nonetheless, we do not recommend paying the ransom. Noos Ransomware’s ransom note may claim the hackers guarantee they will deliver the promised decryptor and may even suggest getting one file decrypted free of charge, but this does not reassure that they will hold on to their end of the bargain. The hackers could start asking for more money or take the money you send and never reply to you again.
