Tron Ransomware

What is Tron Ransomware?

Tron Ransomware is a malicious application that locks your files and shows a warning saying you have only ten days to make a payment to recover them. However, our researchers at say there are no guarantees any of your files will get decrypted if you pay the ransom. As you see, the malware’s creators claim they will decrypt user’s data after he contacts them via email, but they do not explain how it will happen. The question is how can you be sure they have the means to unlock the data damaged by Tron Ransomware or if they will be willing to help you. After all, seeing that the user does not mind paying, the hackers could decide to ask for more money. Unfortunately, under such circumstances, there cannot be any reassurances. Thus, if you do not want to throw out your money for nothing, we urge you not to take any chances. Provided you decide to follow our advice, we encourage you to follow the deletion instructions located a bit below and erase this malware at once.

Where does Tron Ransomware come from?

Most of the similar threats are spread either through malicious files or unsecured RDP connections. It means that Tron Ransomware could enter the system if the user carelessly opens some suspicious file (e.g., attachment from Spam email) or it could sneak in if the system appears to be vulnerable. Therefore, to avoid similar threats in the future, our researchers recommend both strengthening the computer and learning about safe browsing skills. The device could become less vulnerable if the user updates outdated software and employs a legitimate antimalware tool. As for safe browsing tips, we would suggest keeping away from untrustworthy websites (e.g., torrent web pages, gambling websites or sites with adult content, and so on), suspicious email attachments, doubtful advertising content, etc.

How does Tron Ransomware work?

After the malware gets executed it should begin encrypting user’s data (e.g., pictures, photos, archives, documents, videos, and so on) with a strong encryption algorithm. Our researchers say the malicious application’s name comes from the specific extension it should append to each of the victim’s files it manages to lock. For example, a picture named rain.jpg would turn into rain.jpg.tron after Tron Ransomware encrypts it.

The last threat’s action is to show a ransom note, and it should open it in a pop-up window also called Tron. According to this note, all of the victim’s essential files were encrypted and can be recovered only if he pays a ransom in ten days. It also explains how to make the payment and how to contact the malware’s developers. It does not look like the Tron Ransomware’s window provides a decryption button, which means for you to restore any data the hackers would have to send you decryption tools, and yet they claim they “will decrypt your files.” This makes us doubt these people even have such means to deliver. If you do not think they can be trusted as well, we urge you not to take any chances and get rid of this malicious application at once.
