Redshitline Ransomware

What is Redshitline Ransomware?

Redshitline Ransomware, which is also known as ransomware, is a computer infection which might become your worst nightmare. In most cases, it sneaks onto computers without permission and immediately starts acting in an undesirable way. The first thing users notice if Redshitline Ransomware manages to sneak onto the computer is the encrypted files. It will affect all of them, including documents, pictures, videos, and music for one reason – to obtain money from gullible computer users. If Redshitline Ransomware has found a security loophole on your computer too and entered your system, the only thing that you can do is to remove this infection from the system. You will not allow this infection to encrypt new files, if you get rid of it. Unfortunately, its deletion will not decrypt files that have already been encrypted.testtest

What does Redshitline Ransomware do?

We are 100% sure that Redshitline Ransomware will encrypt all the files the moment it slithers onto the computer. In order to make it impossible to unlock files, it uses the well-known encryption algorithm RSA-2048. Research carried out by the specialists at has shown that this encryption algorithm will be used to lock hundreds of files, for example, those that have the following extensions: .cfm, .clx, .crt, .dx, .docx, .xsl, .m4a, .xsn, .rw2, .wb2, .pcx, .pdp, .cfc, .cub, .accdb,. adp, .fbk, and a bunch of others. Generally speaking, the majority of files stored on the computer will be encrypted despite their types. It is really easy to recognize these files – they will all have the new extension added to them, e.g. {unique ID} As you can see, specialists mainly call this ransomware Redshitline because of the extension it adds.

Of course, this ransomware infection will not only decrypt files, but will also create the How to decrypt your files.txt file with instructions on the Desktop. In addition, it will also change the Wallpaper in order to make sure that users know what they have to do in order decrypt files:


Your files and documents on PC are locked.

If you want to reset this operation, send one locked file to this email:


Important information! You have only 3 days for reply at this email before unlocking becomes impossible.

As can be seen, this infection not only provides emails for contacting the administrators of Redshitline Ransomware, but also says that users have only 3 days to do that. Many users fear to lose their files forever, so they write en email letter to or immediately. We have not tried doing that, but we are sure that users will be asked to transfer money to cyber criminals in exchange for the decryption of files. Even though it might seem that it is the only solution, we do not recommend paying money because nobody knows whether these files will really be unlocked. Users who do not wish to pay money, but still want to gain access to files can easily restore them from the backup. Of course, if they have one.

From a more technical perspective, Redshitline Ransomware applies several changes as well. First of all, it creates the Value, e.g. rvpjmcnd (the name might change) in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. In addition, it will add its file with a random name, e.g. 5aba34027d2db0e1cffda281021c61903cac21f3759fc045278480204138b647.exe to C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup. Last but not least, as you already know, it will create a .txt file.

Where does Redshitline Ransomware come from?

Ransomware infections are usually spread as attachments in Spam emails. In most cases, they pretend to be legitimate files, e.g. a MS Word document, which explains why so many users download them. Actually, this is enough to do that to allow ransomware to enter the system. If you do not wish to encounter a ransomware infection ever again, you need to be much more careful on the web, do not download programs from unreliable sources, and install a security tool on the system. The security tool you install must be trustworthy too because there are hundreds of unreliable ones that might cause security-related problems and are completely ineffective.
