Paradise Ransomware

What is Paradise Ransomware?

Malware researchers have recently detected a new ransomware infection. They have named it Paradise Ransomware because it encrypts files and appends .paradise to all of them. It is not spread actively yet, but we have still decided to write an article about it because it might become a prevalent threat in no time. It will not take long to realize that there is Paradise Ransomware inside the system because this threat affects files right after its successful entrance. In other words, it encrypts them all and does not allow users to access them. This ransomware infection acts the way it does because it wants users’ money. Do not even think about sending your money to the developer of Paradise Ransomware no matter that you need to get your files back badly because cyber criminals just want your money, and the chances are high that they will not give you the decryption tool after getting what they want. Because of this, we have only one recommendation for those users whose PCs are infected with this ransomware infection – delete Paradise Ransomware as soon as possible without any hesitation. Once this threat is gone from your system, you could then go to restore your encrypted data. A free decryptor does not exist, but there is still one way to get back these encrypted files – you could restore them from a backup after the full removal of the ransomware infection.testtest

What does Paradise Ransomware do?

Paradise Ransomware has been developed to encrypt users’ files and make it easier for cyber criminals to obtain money from users, so if this infection ever successfully enters your computer, we are sure you will find a bunch of your personal files locked. It will take a second to realize which of the files have been encrypted because they will all get a new extension .paradise together with a string consisting of random letters and numbers and an email address belonging to cyber criminals behind this ransomware infection. The ransomware infection also drops a text (.txt) file #DECRYPT MY FILES#.txt – it is a ransom note. If you read it, you will find out why some of your files cannot be opened and how to fix them. Unfortunately, like the majority of ransomware infections, it demands money from users. The size of the ransom it demands is unknown, but you should be told how much money you need to send if you write an email to, i.e., when you contact cyber criminals behind Paradise Ransomware. The ransom note only informs users that they will need to send the ransom in Bitcoins. You should not send your money to cyber criminals by any means because you will, most probably, get nothing from them. If you still make a decision to make a payment and we can do nothing to change this, make sure you contact the owner of this ransomware infection within 36 hours because the decryption key will be destroyed when the time passes.

Where does Paradise Ransomware come from?

It is not that easy to talk about the distribution of Paradise Ransomware because it is not that prevalent yet, but there is basically no doubt that it successfully arrives on computers the second users open malicious attachments from spam emails. It does not mean that all users infect their systems with this threat after opening an attachment. According to specialists at, users might download Paradise Ransomware from corrupted websites themselves too because this infection might be masqueraded as harmless software. Its entrance does not go unnoticed – you will find your files encrypted, as you already know.
