RedRoman Ransomware

What is RedRoman Ransomware?

When did RedRoman Ransomware invade your Windows operating system? If you have no idea, you might not be able to figure out how this malware attacked. However, some victims might be able to link the invasion of the threat with certain actions. For example, if you downloaded something or opened a spam email attachment not long before your files were corrupted, you probably can tell how this malware slithered in. Of course, that only teaches you a lesson on how to evade threats in the future. Right now, this knowledge gives you nothing because once your files are encrypted, it does not matter how it happened, you cannot recover them. Can you delete RedRoman Ransomware? Of course, you can, and you should, but do not expect the files to be restored automatically. Can you use a third-party decryptor? One that worked did not exist at the time of research, and if you find one that claims to be able to help, make sure you are cautious and thorough with your research. The last thing you need is to have to remove more threats.testtest

How does RedRoman Ransomware work?

RedRoman Ransomware works pretty much the same as Bepabepababy Ransomware, Fireee Ransomware, Decme Ransomware, and other well-known infections that encrypt files. A unique encryption key is always used, and it is always strong enough to ensure that regular victims cannot crack it manually. The point is to ensure that files are unreadable and stay that way. So, why do the attackers behind ransomware want you not to be able to read files? That is a way for them to make money. RedRoman Ransomware is most likely to encrypt highly valuable and important files, such as photos or documents, and once they are corrupted, the “.REDROMAN” extension should be found pinned to their original names. Files are marked in this way so that you would see the scale of the damage. As soon as files are encrypted, a ransom note file is dropped (OPENTHIS.html, README.html, or RR_README.html), and it is safe for you to open this file. However, do NOT rush to follow the instructions that are represented via this file.

In most cases, ransom note files are used to help cybercriminals represent themselves and make demands. The ransom of RedRoman Ransomware appears to be trying to conceal cybercriminal activity. The message claims that your files were corrupted due to a critical error and that you can contact a tech support team to get the problem resolved. Of course, no tech support would ask for a payment in advance for services. Also, cryptocurrency would not be used. Clearly, this is a ransom note that was created by cybercriminals, and all they care about is your money. Although it is suggested that if you transfer $200 in Bitcoin to a listed Bitcoin Wallet (14BfVG4vH71NLmhu7vFKi9EMmeZFoiAsYP) and then confirm a transaction by sending an email to, you will get a decryptor, you must not trust cybercriminals. They can promise you anything just to get your money. If you have sent two test files, and they were decrypted for free, do not take this as a positive sign. Most likely, this is just a scam set up to ensure that you pay the ransom.

How to delete RedRoman Ransomware

So, you cannot recover files by removing RedRoman Ransomware. A working third-party decryptor does not exist. And you cannot trust the attackers to provide you with a decryptor that they are so adamant about selling. Then what are you supposed to do? Most likely, you cannot decrypt your files, but if copies exist, you can replace them. It is always a good idea to keep backup copies of your personal files – at least, the most important ones – on external or virtual drives because ransomware is not the only kind of malware that can destroy the original files. Also, your device could be stolen or get damaged. Hopefully, you have backup copies, and if you do, you should focus on having RedRoman Ransomware deleted first. Eliminating this threat manually is not an easy task because you are required to locate and delete the infection’s .exe file yourself. Unfortunately, we cannot know its location. This is why we strongly suggest implementing anti-malware software. Not only will it strengthen Windows protection but also automatically remove threats.
