Scarab-Danger Ransomware

What is Scarab-Danger Ransomware?

Scarab-Danger Ransomware belongs to Scarab Ransomware family. It is a threat that enciphers targeted files located on the infected computer and then displays a note saying the user has to pay a ransom if he wishes to get his data back. As you see recovering it on your own could be impossible if you do not have any backup copies. Nonetheless, we do not think it would be wise to pay these cybercriminals. It is entirely possible they may not bother to help even if they promise to do so once you send the requested sum. Therefore, to victims who are not prepared to risk losing their money for recovery of their data that might never happen, we can only suggest removing Scarab-Danger Ransomware. If you think it is the best option as well, we encourage you to have a closer look at the deletion instructions located below, but if you have not yet decided what to do, it could be a good idea to read the rest of this text and learn more about the malware in question.

Where does Scarab-Danger Ransomware come from?

Like other malicious applications from the Scarab Ransomware family, Scarab-Danger Ransomware could be spread through unsecured RDP connections, malicious email attachments, harmful software installers, fake updates, and so on. As you realize, to avoid such malware might be not an easy task, especially if you like visiting unreliable web pages from time to time or do not mind opening suspicious data. Naturally, for users who do not want to accidentally infect their devices and lose all important data stored on them, we would recommend being more cautious while surfing the Internet or interacting with questionable data.

How does Scarab-Danger Ransomware work?

First of all the malware should locate its targeted files, for example, photos, archives, videos, and other data that could be personal or in other words important to the device’s user. Next, Scarab-Danger Ransomware should begin enciphering the described files with a secure encryption algorithm. According to our researchers at, the threat may rename each file and append a particular extension at the end of the title. For instances, a file named kittens.jpg might be renamed into or, and so on. As you can see the additional second extensions could be different as our researchers say Scarab-Danger Ransomware might have a couple of slightly different versions.

Afterward, the malicious application is supposed to place a text document on the infected device. It should display a ransom note from the cybercriminals who created the infection. It says users who wish to decrypt their files should write to the hackers via Jabber and users who do not have money should not write them at all. We have no doubt the reply from them would ask to pay a ransom and tell the user how to do so. Again, we would like to stress it might be extremely risky as there are no guarantees the malware’s developers will keep up to their promises.
