Delphi Ransomware

Delphi Ransomware

Do you know what happens to the files corrupted by Delphi Ransomware? They are encrypted, which means that they can be read only using a special decoder. Although you might be happy to learn that your files are not lost completely, we have bad news: Cyber criminals are the only ones who can give you the tool to restore personal files. So, what is the problem? The problem is that these cyber criminals are unlikely to help you out. They might promise you to decrypt files as soon as you contact them and then pay the ransom, but if you think that the words of attackers can be trusted, you are wrong. While we cannot guarantee that you would not get anything in return for the ransom – after all, cyber criminals are people, and so they are unpredictable – it would be surprising to learn about files being decrypted successfully. If you cannot do anything about your files, you still can delete Delphi Ransomware, and we recommend initiating the removal of this malware ASAP. Read more »

Depending on the version of this malware that you face, the messages delivered via the wallpaper and the text file should push you to email un42@protonmail.com or getcrypt@cock.li, and you should not do that. You will learn why that is risky if you continue reading. If you do that, you will also learn how to delete GetCrypt Ransomware, and doing that is very important.

.kraussmfz Ransomware File Extension

The .kraussmfz Ransomware File Extension is an extension that is added to the files corrupted by a malicious infection, popularly known by the name “IEncrypt Ransomware.” Unfortunately, this extension is customizable, and it is not universal.

Without a doubt, the infection can be customized and go after other kinds of companies, and when that happens, the extension can be customized as well. That being said, in this report, Anti-Spyware-101.com research team focuses on the version of the threat that adds the .kraussmfz Ransomware File Extension.

.myjob File Extension Ransomware

.myjob File Extension Ransomware

When .myjob File Extension Ransomware slithers in and corrupts your personal files, it adds an additional extension to their original names: “id-{id}.[goodjob24@foxmail.com].myjob.” This extension includes a unique code that is given to every victim individually. It also includes an email address, about which we talk further in this report. Finally, it includes a final extension, “.myjob,” and this is where the name of the threat comes from. Needless to say, files are encrypted only after the malicious infection finds its way into an operating system. To slither in, its creator might employ misleading emails to trick victims into executing malware themselves. They could also exploit known vulnerabilities. In any case, when this infection slithers in, you will notice it. Besides attaching the unique extension to the corrupted files, it also creates files and launches a window to deliver a message. We suggest paying no attention to it because you need to focus on deleting .myjob File Extension Ransomware. Of course, note that your files will NOT be restored if you remove this malware.
