Mespinoza Ransomware

Mespinoza Ransomware

Mespinoza Ransomware is very dangerous, and if you make the mistake of letting this malware into your operating system, you are likely to find most of your personal files encrypted. Needless to say, you are unlikely to let this malware in knowingly, but cybercriminals know the tricks and the backdoors that can be used to help the distribution of malware. For example, cybercriminals know that many people continue to be careless with spam emails. They open them, they read them, and if the message is convincing enough, they might be tricked into opening the attached file. As you might have gathered already, this file represents malware. Once the file is opened, the path for malware to slither in is cleared, and if security software is not set up to look out for you and delete infections before they are executed, the attack is underway. Sadly, once personal files are encrypted, they cannot be restored. You cannot salvage them even by removing Mespinoza Ransomware. Read more »

VIRUS Ransomware

VIRUS Ransomware

VIRUS Ransomware is a threat that encrypts files and displays a ransom note. Meaning, the malicious application was created for money extortion. If you do not want to fund cybercriminals, you could use your backup copies (e.g., files on cloud storage or removable media devices) to get your data back. The malicious application's ransom note may suggest purchasing decryption tools by contacting the threat’s creators and paying a ransom. Of course, doing so would be risky as hackers are not people that you can trust. This is why we always advise not to pay ransom for victims who fear being tricked. However, before deciding anything, we recommend learning more about this malicious application by reading our full article. Also, if you need guidance while erasing it, you should have a look at our deletion instructions available below this article too. Read more »

Cyborg Ransomware

Nvram Ransomware is a malicious computer infection. Users download and install this ransomware themselves, but they are not aware of it at first. After all, who in their right mind would ever download a malicious infection willingly?

Decrypme Ransomware

Decrypme Ransomware

Decrypme Ransomware goes after the most sensitive part of your operating system – your personal files. Whether it is a wedding video, a work document, or a childhood photo, this malicious infection can grab the file and change its data to render it unreadable. The ransomware does not encrypt files with .decryptme, .dll, .encrypted, .exe, .ini, .lnk, .rdp, and .sys extensions, but these extensions do not really represent personal files, and the infection is not interested in those. In fact, it specifically avoids system files by circumventing all folders that are found in certain locations. These locations are \AppData, \Application Data, \intel, \nvidia, \Program Files, \Users\All Users, \Windows, allusersprofile, programdata, programfiles(x86), systemdrive, userprofile, and windir. If the infection encrypted system files, it would be much easier to resolve the problem, but personal files cannot be replaced, unless backups exist. If backups exist, you have nothing to worry besides deleting Decrypme Ransomware. Read more »

AIR Ransomware

AIR Ransomware

AIR Ransomware was created to encrypt files. Unfortunately, it can encrypt 181 different types of files, among which we have .doc, .docx, .png, .gif, .raw, .jar, .java, .uot, .stw, .sxw, .ott, .odt, .pem, .p12, .csr, .crt, .key, .pfx, .der, .dat, and many other types. When files are encrypted, they cannot be restored manually. Furthermore, tools that could do it automatically did not exist at the time of research. In some cases, free decryptors are created to crack the encryptors used by malware, but that does not happen too often. If you decide to look for a tool like that, make sure that you are careful because it is possible that you could end up installing something that is not only useless but also malicious. As you might have figured out yourself, you cannot restore files by removing AIR Ransomware. Nonetheless, you want to delete this infection, and you want to get it done fast. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has analyzed this malware for you, and we are ready to assist you. Read more »
