What is Ransomware? malware analysts warn about Ransomware. It was created using the same malware code that has been used by all threats from the Crysis/Dharma family, including Ransomware and Ransomware. As you can tell, the email addresses of these infections are important. That is because they are the only things that change. The structure of the infection, the distribution, the encryption process, and the demands made afterward are all the same. Even the names of the files that this malware creates are the same. That being said, it is most likely that different malicious parties are responsible for these threats, unless the same attacker has created hundreds of email addresses. In any case, whether there is one malicious attacker or a bunch of them standing behind this malware, you need to remove it as quickly as possible. If you continue reading, you will learn how to delete Ransomware as well. Note that the comments section below if open, and if you have questions, you can post them there.testtest

How does Ransomware work?

Did Ransomware attack your personal files after you opened a strange email message and then clicked a link or a file attachment? That is one of the ways that Crysis/Dharma malware spreads. Our research team also informs that other threats could be involved. A malware dropping Trojan could have entered your operating system a long time ago, and it could be silently downloading threats like Ransomware without you even knowing it. Because that is possible, once you remove the malicious ransomware, we recommend scanning your operating system using a legit malware scanner. If anything else exists, the scanner will warn you about it, and you will be able to delete it quickly. Of course, you might not even want to think about all of that when you realize that your personal files were encrypted. The “.id-[unique ID].[].adobe” extension is added to the names of these files, and even if you remove this extension, the files will remain unreadable.

Once your files are encrypted, you might find a file named “FILES ENCRYPTED.txt” on the Desktop. You can remove this file, but it is safe to open. It contains a short text message that instructs to email and to have the files “returned.” These email addresses are also introduced to you via the “” window that is meant to pop up as soon as the threat is done with the encryption. The note in this window is a little longer, but it sends the same message. It also informs that “You have to pay for decryption in Bitcoins,” but since no details are provided, you need to send the email if you want more information. Obviously, we do not recommend contacting Ransomware creators or paying the ransom because we do not believe that that would help you decrypt files. In fact, we do not think that it is possible to decrypt data at all. If you have backups, you can replace the corrupted files, but do not consider decryption to be an option.

How to delete Ransomware

If you are not an experienced Windows user, protecting the system and eliminating existing threats manually is unlikely to be feasible for you. Do not be discouraged by that because even if you cannot remove Ransomware on your own, a reliable anti-malware program can certainly take care of this issue. The best part is that it can simultaneously delete all existing threats AND it can build the security of your system to prevent successful malware attacks in the future! Remember that ransomware is not the only kind of malware that could attack. There are Trojans, keyloggers, rogues, fake system optimizers, adware, and all kinds of other threats. Some of them could delete or corrupt files too, which is why backing them up is so important. Also, remember that files can be lost in other ways (e.g., if you accidentally delete them or if your computer is stolen), and backups can safeguard you against it all.
