What is Ransomware?

Your virtual security is important to you, isn’t it? Then why would you let Ransomware in? If this malicious threat has not slithered into your operating system yet, you want to take this opportunity to secure it as soon as possible. The first thing you want to do is install a reliable anti-malware tool to safeguard your operating system and keep infections away. The second thing you have to do is back up your files, and we recommend choosing cloud storage or external drives to back up photos, videos, and other personal files you might not want to lose. If it is too late to protect your personal files because your system has been invaded by the malicious ransomware already, make it a point to back up files in the future because that is the only thing that can guarantee that your files are safe. Of course, if you need to delete Ransomware, that is the first thing you need to focus on.

How does Ransomware work? research team has analyzed quite a few threats that are similar to Ransomware. Some of the latest examples include Matrix-NEWRAR Ransomware, Pottieq Ransomware, and Wise Ransomware. Most file-encrypting infections invade operating systems, encrypt files on them, and then make demands to pay ransoms in return for allegedly active decryptors. Another thing that these infections usually have in common is that they are usually spread using the same backdoors. In most cases, spam emails are used to expose unsuspecting users to ransomware installers. Unsafe RDP configurations and unreliable bundled installers can be used as well. Once Ransomware is executed, the malicious threat deletes itself very fast. First, it encrypts files and appends “.SAVEfiles” to their original names. Then, the ransom note called “!!!SAVE_FILES_INFO!!!.txt” is created in the Startup folder and all folders with encrypted files inside. After this, the launcher of the ransomware is automatically removed, and a copy is created in the %LOCALAPPDATA% directory. The name of the file is random, but, of course, you must find and remove it.

The ransom note created by Ransomware informs that files were encrypted, and it suggests that the only way of recovering files is using special software and a key that only cyber criminals can offer. Although free decryptors do not exist, and the infection is considered to be “undecryptable,” you should not jump to following the instructions of cyber criminals. The malicious Ransomware was created to push you into paying the ransom, but there are no guarantees – NONE – that you would receive a decryptor and that you would be able to use it to recover corrupted files. Are you willing to take your chances? They will cost you $500. That is how much the creator of the ransomware expects you to pay for a decryptor whose existence cannot even be confirmed. There is no information on how to pay the ransom, but you can send a message to or email to get more information. You shouldn’t do this if you do not want to waste $500.
