Npph Ransomware

What is Npph Ransomware?

If you get infected with Npph Ransomware, the situation might seem severe, but there’s no need to panic. Sure, if you don’t have a file backup, it might seem that you will lose your files for good, but that’s also no reason to jump straight into the trap and give your money away to these criminals.

Please learn more about this infection before you decide to do anything about it. We strongly recommend removing Npph Ransomware from your system with an automated security tool. As for your files, you can restore them either with the public decryption tool or through a file backup.test

Where does Npph Ransomware come from?

Npph Ransomware comes from the STOP Ransomware family. It is an ever-growing group of ransomware infections. All of the programs from this group are practically identical. Even the ransom note that they display on your screen upon the infection contains the same text. Basically, the only thing that’s different across these infections is the extension they added to the files once they are encrypted.

Also, Npph Ransomware will employ similar distribution methods to reach its victims. Ransomware programs usually travel via spam email attachments. So, Npph Ransomware will reach its victims just like Maas Ransomware, Kuus Ransomware, and Qpqz Ransomware did. Users will probably install this program thinking they are about to open an important document, but it will be a ransomware installer, disguised as a regular document.

Therefore, if you have to deal with multiple documents attachments every single day, you need to remain cautious and attentive. If you see that a document came from an unknown party or from a colleague with whom you barely ever speak, it would be wise to double-check and see whether the message is authentic. Don’t be so hasty to open the file without checking it first. If you can, scan it with a security tool of your choice. This way, you will definitely know whether the file is reliable or now.

What does Npph Ransomware do?

If you still manage to install Npph Ransomware on your computer, it will take you on the regular ransomware ride. First, the infection will scan your system and it will locate all the types of files it can encrypt. After that, the program will launch the encryption itself. As mentioned, once the encryption is complete, the affected files will get a new extension. For instance, a file flower.jpeg would look like flower.jpeg.npph once the encryption is complete.

In a sense, this extension is like a stamp that tells you your files have been affected by Npph Ransomware, but you don’t need that to understand that your files have been tampered with. After all, the file icons will have changed, and you will see that something is terribly wrong. On top of that, Npph Ransomware will also display a ransom note that contains decryption instructions. The instructions just say that you have to pay the ransom fee if you want to get your files back.

What’s more, if you hurry up and contact these people within the first 72 hours since the infection, the criminals say they would give you a 50% discount on the payment. Now, it might sound like a good deal, but don’t get tricked: even if you were to pay the ransom, there’s no guarantee that they would issue the decryption key.

Also, there is a public decryption tool developed for the STOP Ransomware infection, and most of the programs from this family tend to employ the offline encryption key to lock up the files. While not all files are encrypted with this key, it still allows you to restore at least some of the files that were affected by the infection.

How do I remove Npph Ransomware?

Removing Npph Ransomware is rather easy. It’s the file recovery that causes headaches to everyone. You can delete Npph Ransomware either manually or with a security tool of your choice. After that, if you have a file backup, you can delete the encrypted files and transfer the copies back into your computer. There’s always the public decryption tool for STOP Ransomware that you can try. However, the most important thing is to learn from this and make sure that you avoid similar intruders in the future.
