Nransom Ransomware

What is Nransom Ransomware?

Nransom Ransomware has been categorized as ransomware, but it slightly differs from ordinary ransomware infections, we have to say. Surprisingly, it does not want users’ money. It locks victims’ screens and then asks them to send 10 nude pictures instead. Do not even think about doing this – you could remove the opened screen from your Desktop yourself even though it does not have X in the top-right corner and cannot be resized or moved. Unlike a bunch of other ransomware infections researchers working at analyze every day, it does not encrypt a single file on the system. As mentioned, it only opens a window with a message and a picture of the fictional character Thomas the Tank Engine. Because of this, this threat is called a screenlocker. You cannot leave this threat active on your computer even if you have managed to access your Desktop – it is only a question of time when you will find it opened again. The removal of Nransom Ransomware should not be very complicated if you follow our manual removal guide provided right below this paragraph.test

Where does Nransom Ransomware come from?

As you already know, Nransom Ransomware is not crypto-malware. Instead, it is a screenlocker; however, our specialists say that it should be distributed exactly like infections encrypting files. To be more specific, it should be mainly distributed as an attachment in spam emails, so do not open a single spam email and its attachment if you do not want to discover malicious software on your computer. It should be emphasized that ransomware infections are not the only threats that might enter your system after the launch of the malicious email attachment. Of course, this is only one of several distribution methods that might be used to promote Nransom Ransomware. It is possible to download ransomware infections from random file-sharing websites too, so you should download applications only from trustworthy websites if you do not want to encounter malware. Our last piece of advice for you would be to keep a security application enabled 24/7. Make sure you install a trustworthy tool that could protect you against the latest infections too.
