Ordinypt Ransomware

What is Ordinypt Ransomware?

Ordinypt Ransomware, also known as Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware, belongs to the group of crypto-malware. Since it drops a ransom note written in German, our researchers suspect that it targets German-speaking users primarily. Sadly, there are no guarantees that it will not arrive on those computers whose owners do not know a single word in this language. If you are reading this article because you have already detected this infection on your computer too, what you should do first things first is to remove Ordinypt Ransomware so that it could not encrypt any new personal files you create. This ransomware infection does not launch automatically on system startup because it does not create a point of execution, but you might launch it yourself by mistake. Ransomware infections are considered one of the most dangerous malicious applications, but, luckily, the ransomware infection we are talking about in this article is not one of those sophisticated threats. It means that it should not be very hard to delete it from the system. Unfortunately, it might be impossible to decrypt files this ransomware infection has touched. Yes, it is a typical crypto-threat that locks users’ personal files once it infiltrates their computers.

What does Ordinypt Ransomware do?

Ordinypt Ransomware is another typical ransomware infection, so do not expect it to act somehow differently. Research conducted by our experienced specialists has shown that it also encrypts users’ files mercilessly after infiltrating their computers. It will not encrypt your ALL files if you ever encounter it. It has been found that it leaves %WINDIR%, %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%, and other directories untouched. This is good news because it means that it will not ruin your Windows OS like some other malicious applications do. Unfortunately, it will mercilessly encrypt your files located in other directories. Unlike Cobra Ransomware, WannaDie Ransomware, and 0000 Ransomware, it does not mark encrypted files by adding a new extension to them, but we are sure you will soon notice which of your files have been encrypted because you could simply no longer open any of them. You should also find the ransom note (Wo_sind_meine_Dateien.html) on your PC soon after the entrance of Ordinypt Ransomware. Its first sentence informs users that their files have been encrypted. Then, the ransom note explains how files can be decrypted: “The decryption software can be purchased from us. The price of the decryption software is 0.12 Bitcoin (about 600 Euro).” Finally, users find out where they can purchase Bitcoins from. You have 7 days to send the ransom to cyber criminals because these encrypted files will be irrevocably deleted when this time passes, but, of course, we hope that you will decide not to transfer money to them. Instead, you should go to restore your files from a backup. If you have never backed up your files, remove the ransomware infection from your PC but do not rush to erase those encrypted files if they are very important to you because free decryption software might be released one day.

Where does Ordinypt Ransomware come from?

Specialists are sure that Ordinypt Ransomware acts exactly like other ransomware infections. That is, it should slither onto users’ computers illegally too, specialists say. Most likely, it is spread as Viktoria Henschel - Lebenslauf - November.pdf.exe or Viktoria Henschel - Bewerbung - November.pdf.exe in spam emails. Never open attachments from spam emails because you might allow a similar infection to enter your PC again and lose personal files one more time. You should be careful with new software you download from the web too because you might download malware by mistake. If you are not going to stop downloading free software, you should, at least, install reputable security software on your computer to ensure the system’s maximum protection.

How to delete Ordinypt Ransomware

Sadly, you cannot decrypt your files without the special decryptor, but you can delete the ransomware infection from your computer quite easily. We suggest doing this today because active malware on the system is never a good idea – it might lock your new files too. All you need to do to remove it is to kill the malicious process and remove its launcher. Since it might have any name, it would be smart to delete all recently downloaded suspicious files. Alternatively, you can scan your computer with an automated malware remover to clean your system.
