Ransommine Ransomware

What is Ransommine Ransomware?

Ransommine Ransomware is probably one of the strangest ransomware infections as this new threat does not try to swindle you and demand a ransom fee in exchange for the decryption tool or key. Our malware experts say that this dangerous program appears to come from "playful" cyber gangsters who instruct you to play a certain game for an hour to get your files decrypted. What's more, if you have this game installed, it may well save your files from encryption altogether. No matter how funny or playful this may sound, we are still talking about a dangerous threat since your files may actually remain encrypted and thus inaccessible for you. Hopefully, you have a backup in cloud or on a portable device so that you can use your clean files to restore them in case your gaming would not eventually result in the decryption of your files. We suggest that you do not hesitate to remove Ransommine Ransomware from your computer after noticing it.testtest

Where does Ransommine Ransomware come from?

Our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that this infection may be spread as a fake software download or update. This means that you could be prompted on shady websites to install it but you may also do so when you believe that you are installing something else. You could infect your system with this threat when you install a software bundle you download from a suspicious file-sharing website (torrent or shareware). This is why it is worth sticking with official and reputable sites only whenever you want a new application. Since cyber crooks can also use so-called Exploit Kits to infect you without your knowledge, it is vital that you update your browsers and drivers frequently if you would like to avoid the headache of removing Ransommine Ransomware or any other dangerous threat that may be dropped this way.

Another way for cyber criminals to infect you with this ransomware is to send out lots of spam e-mails with the malicious executable file as attachment. This spam may be very deceptive and make you believe that you are dealing with an urgent or important matter. Obviously, the subject matter is totally made up. These criminals may try to trick you subjects like unpaid invoices, police notifications, credit card issues, and so on. Most people would consider these matters important enough to open this mail and see the attachment, which, by the way, seems to be the only way to learn more about this alleged urgent matter. Of course, you would not be any wiser since running this file attachment would simply activate this vicious attack. In other words, by the time you can remove Ransommine Ransomware, your files will all be rendered unusable.

How does Ransommine Ransomware work?

It seems that this malware infection mostly targets Korean computer users. It encrypts your photos and documents, and appends a ".RansomMine" extension to the end of the original file names. However, before this ransomware would start the encryption, it inspects your system whether it can find Minecraft 1.11.2 on board. If so, it is possible that it will not even encrypt your files. Why would it do that? The truth is, however weird this may sound, but this ransomware does not seem to be about money, i.e., your money. Instead, these cyber crooks take it all "playful" and "funny," as the ransomware suggests, which comes up after your files have been encrypted. This note claims that you can recover your files as long as you play a minimum of one hour with the Minecraft 1.11.2 version. Could it be a strange way to promote Minecraft? Is it possible that these crooks are simply Minecraft fanatics? Maybe we will never know the answers to these questions. One thing we do know though: You need to remove Ransommine Ransomware from your system right away.
