Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware

What is Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware?

It is very likely that you have let Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware into your Windows operating system yourself, and you might have done that by opening corrupted links or spam email attachments. Our research team at also suggests that unprotected RDP channels could be used to spread the malicious infection silently. If the threat infiltrates the operating system silently, you are unlikely to realize that you need to remove anything malicious. Needless to say, if you do not take care of that, the threat starts performing malicious processes, and the most important one is to encrypt files. The infection uses an algorithm to encrypt files and make the data unreadable. If the files are corrupted successfully, you cannot restore them, unless backups exist outside the infected operating system. Even if you delete Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware successfully, your files would not be restored automatically. Therefore, if you still have the chance, you need to protect your system and files against this malware. If you are already dealing with it, you need to get rid of it ASAP.testtest

How does Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware work?

Although Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware might seem like a completely new and unfamiliar infection, our researchers have found that it comes from a line of well-known infections that started with Scarab Ransomware. A few other threats that emerged after this malware are Scarab-Deep Ransomware and Scarab-Bomber Ransomware. All of these infections are dangerous, and they can successfully encrypt files. When Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware encrypts files, it adds the “.CYBERGOD” extension to them, and their names are changed to random strings of letters and numbers. What would happen if you changed the names and removed the added extensions? Unfortunately, nothing would happen, and so we advise that you do not waste your time on that. Of course, you are most likely to discover encrypted files only after the ransomware changes your Desktop wallpaper and creates a file named “From Jobe Smith.TXT.” Copies of this file should be found in different folders that contain encrypted personal files. Without a doubt, you want to remove the wallpaper image and the TXT file, but you are likely to check the message by the creator of the ransomware first.

According to the message represented via the “From Jobe Smith.TXT” file, The Lawnmower Man wants you to make an offer via or email address. The message suggests that a few files would be decrypted for free, and so you might be tempted to email your ID and make an offer. If that is what you choose to do, you definitely do not want to offer much. At the end of the day, it is most likely that the developer of Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware would request a very specific ransom, and paying it is not a good idea. If you think that you would get all of your personal files decrypted if you paid a ransom, you could be mistaken. After all, cyber criminals want money, not to assist you. Therefore, it is much more likely that they would disappear as soon as the money was received. So, if you do not want to lose your money along with your files, think twice before you pay the ransom.
