Pojie Ransomware

What is Pojie Ransomware?

Pojie Ransomware is one of those malicious infections that can give you a run for your money. As you can tell from its name, it is a ransomware infection, and so, it will try to push you into spending your money on a decryption tool for your files. Security experts always maintain that paying for the file decryption is not a good idea because you can only encourage these criminals to create more dangerous programs. Remove Pojie Ransomware right now following the instructions below, and then invest in a powerful security tool that will help you protect your PC from various threats in the future.test

Where does Pojie Ransomware come from?

It looks like Pojie Ransomware is a lonesome wolf in this ever-growing pack of ransomware infections. Nevertheless, it still is a dangerous infection that can successfully lock up your files.

The program is very likely intended for the Chinese-speaking region because its ransom note is in Simplified Mandarin. Although, if you cross the path of the ransomware distribution route, you might get infected with Pojie Ransomware, too.

It is possible that this infection employs the usual ransomware distribution patterns. It means that it travels via spam email attachments, where unsuspecting users are tricked into downloading the attached files, thinking they might be important documents.

Therefore, although we already mentioned the importance of a security tool, your web browsing habits are also just as important when it comes to ensuring your system’s security. Please refrain from downloading files from unknown sources, and do not open files you receive from unknown parties. If you must open a specific file you receive via email, don’t hesitate to scan it with a security tool first.

What does Pojie Ransomware do?

Now, if you didn’t manage to avoid this infection, and it entered your system, please don’t panic. What’s done is done, and there’s no way to turn it back now, so you have to deal with the consequences first.

You will see that all of your files were encrypted, and they have a new extension. For example, if you have a flower.jpeg file on your computer, you will see that the file name has been changed to flower.jpeg.52pojie. This extension is almost like a stamp that tells you that your files were affected by this ransomware program. Of course, you don’t need such a red flag to know that something is wrong because all the file icons change automatically once the encryption is complete. The system can no longer read them, so your icons turn into blank pages.

Aside from encrypting your files, Pojie Ransomware also drops a ransom note in a TXT format file. The ransom note is in Chinese, but even if you were to use an automated translator tool, you would see that the note tells you that your data has been encrypted and now you shouldn’t shut down your computer, because then you would lose your files.

The ransom note says that you have to send an email to 52pojie_mail@protonmail.com. From there, the criminals should be able to communicate with these criminals and find out how much it would cost to restore your files. However, as we have already mentioned, paying is not an option because it would give a green light for these criminals to create more dangerous programs.

Also, it is possible to restore your files if you have a file backup. If that’s the case, simply remove Pojie Ransomware from your system along with the encrypted files, and then transfer the healthy copies back into your computer. That should be enough.

How do I remove Pojie Ransomware?

It’s not that complicated to remove Pojie Ransomware from your system. There’s just one EXE file you have to delete to get rid of this program. Of course, removing the files dropped by the infection doesn’t automatically restore your files. There’s also no public decryption tool that we know of at the moment. So, if you don’t have a file backup, and you have no idea where else you could’ve saved copies of your files, you might have to start building your file library anew.

Nevertheless, no matter what you do, make sure that you don’t fall into the same trap again. And please don’t forget to invest in a licensed security application.
