Where does Repter Ransomware come from?

The malicious application could be received while clicking suspicious pop-ups, advertisements, links, or after opening unreliable files. Therefore, we always advise our readers not to interact with any kind of data if they are not entirely sure that it is safe. Launchers of malicious applications like Repter Ransomware can masquerade as text documents, pictures, software installers, updates, game cracks, and other files that users might receive via email or find on unreliable websites, pop-ups, and ads. Thus, you have to be extra careful and attentive if you want to keep away from ransomware and various other harmful tools. Also, we recommend installing a legitimate antimalware tool that could guard your system against various malicious applications. Do not forget that you can use your chosen antimalware tool to scan files that might seem suspicious to you. The scan should not take much of your time, but, most importantly, it can help you identify files that could infect your device before opening them.

How does Repter Ransomware work?

It might not take long before Repter Ransomware starts encrypting your files. As you see, our researchers at noticed that the malware might run from the directory where it was launched without creating additional files. Also, we noticed that the malicious application encrypts almost all data expect files that have .reg, .msi, .sys, or other rare extensions that usually belong to system data or program files. As for files with .jpg, .docx, .pdf, and extensions alike, they should all be encrypted with a strong encryption system. You can recognize encrypted files by looking at a file’s extension since encrypted data should have double extension, e.g., red_panda.jpg.EMAIL=[]ID=[E035BQ76].repter.

After encrypting targeted files, Repter Ransomware should create ransom notes that might be dropped in every directory containing encrypted files. According to these notes, all files can be decrypted with unique decryption tools, but victims have to pay for them. Meaning, you might have to pay ransom if you want to get your files back. As said in the beginning, the downside of dealing with hackers is that they cannot provide any guarantees and there is always a risk they might not bother to deliver what they promise. Thus, if you fear getting scammed, we advise you not to put up with any demands. Also, it would be smart to remove Repter Ransomware as keeping malicious software on your device is never a good idea.
