V3JS Ransomware

What is V3JS Ransomware?

V3JS Ransomware is a malicious application that shows a warning with a picture of a skull. The malware does so after encrypting all victims’ images, text files, and data alike. As a result, the files that get encrypted become unusable. According to the threat’s ransom note, they can still be restored if a user pays a ransom, but you cannot be sure that it will happen. In other words, you could be tricked. Naturally, if you do not trust the malware’s creators and worry that they could deceive you, we advise you not to pay the ransom but concentrate on the malicious application’s deletion.

How does V3JS Ransomware work?

The malware has two main tasks. One of them is to encrypt all personal files that users might be unable to replace with a strong cryptosystem. The other task is to display a warning message that would explain to users what has happened and would tell them what to do to restore their files. To be more precise, the note from hackers ought to inform victims that they can pay a ransom, and then when they click the ransom note available on the threat’s window, their files will be decrypted. Of course, there is no knowing if the threat has an integrated decryption tool or that it will still work. Moreover, the malware’s creators claim that users who try to erase V3JS Ransomware or restart their computers will be punished as the threat will erase their files. Our researchers say that hackers may say so just to convince users to pay the ransom. On the other hand, if you do not want to pay ransom anyway and have no hope your files will get decrypted, you might not care whether the encrypted files get deleted or not. In which case, we advise deleting the malware.
