GandCrab 5 Ransomware

GandCrab 5 Ransomware

GandCrab 5 Ransomware does not damage the system, but it can ruin all your photos, pictures, videos, and other similar files you might keep on the computer. The threat does so by encrypting each file with a secure encryption algorithm. Sadly, the only way to reverse the process is to use a specific decryption tool and a unique decryption key generated by the malware. The only problem is these means are available only to the malicious program’s creators, and they want a huge payment in exchange. Naturally, we do not recommend risking your saving to restore your files even if they are valuable to you. If you would like to know more about the malware before you choose whether it should be erased or not, you should read our full article. However, if you already know you have no intention to pay the ransom and wish to eliminate GandCrab 5 Ransomware as fast as possible you could slide below the text and use the given instructions.

5H311 1NJ3C706 Ransomware

5H311 1NJ3C706 Ransomware

5H311 1NJ3C706 Ransomware is a malicious threat that encrypts files on the victim’s computer and then shows a note demanding to pay a ransom. Usually, we do not recommend paying the ransom because there is always a chance the user could be tricked, and the money he spends might go to waste, but in this case, it may not be necessary. Apparently, the malware has an integrated decryption tool, which deciphers all user’s data after entering this passcode: 666HackerThn. Of course, we cannot be sure the decryption password will not be changed, but if you come across this infection and you have no other options to get your data back, it is worth a try. Needless to say, later on, we would recommend removing 5H311 1NJ3C706 Ransomware from the computer as leaving it could be still dangerous. If you need help with its deletion, you should take a look at the instructions we will place below the article. Read more »

Giyotin Ransomware

Giyotin Ransomware is among the newest ransomware infections detected by specialists at anti-spyware-101.com. It seems that malware targets Turkish-speaking users primarily, but it does not mean that you cannot encounter it. You might find any harmful program installed on your computer if you are not very careful, click on random links and advertisements that are displayed to you, and download tons of all kinds of applications from torrent websites. Luckily, Giyotin Ransomware does not encrypt files on users’ computers even though it places a window with a message in Turkish over the users’ screens claiming that all important files have been encrypted immediately after the successful entrance. According to specialists, this might show that Giyotin Ransomware is still in the development phase or hackers expect that users will send them money immediately after discovering a message opened on their Desktops. Since that window can be closed easily, you will see for yourself that none of your files have been locked – simply tap Alt+F4 to close it. It does not mean that you do not need to do anything else if your files have not been encrypted – you must still remove the ransomware infection from your PC. There is nothing smart about keeping malware on the system, even if it is not extremely harmful, because it might download an update from its C&C server and turn your life into a nightmare.

IT.Books Ransomware

IT.Books Ransomware

IT.Books Ransomware encrypts almost all files found on the computer, which is why some of the software might crash once the system gets infected, and data like images might become impossible to open. The cybercriminals behind this threat may offer their decryption tools for a particular price, but it seems to us it would be safer to restore enciphered data from backup copies. It would not cost you anything either. However, before attaching any removable devices or connecting to cloud storage where backup copies could be kept, it would be advisable to erase the malicious application first to be on the safe side. If you choose to follow our advice we encourage you to use the removal instructions available at the end of this report. On the other hand, if the process appears to be too complicated for you to complete on your own, you could get a legitimate antimalware tool and let it eliminate IT.Books Ransomware for you.

Kraken Cryptor 1.5 Ransomware

Kraken Cryptor 1.5 Ransomware is a nasty computer threat whose entrance will not be fun at all. It is one of those harmful malicious applications that enter computers to obtain money from users, so if you ever encounter it, you could no longer access a bunch of files on your computer. The ransomware infection locks files with .3gp, .1cd, .dat, .dbx, .class, .docx, .doc, .drw, .dxg, .djvu, .groups, .jar, .java, .json, and other popular extensions, but, luckily, it skips all system files. In other words, your computer will continue working normally even though you could no longer open a bunch of your files. You will be offered to acquire a unique key that can unlock encrypted personal files, but you should definitely not send money to cyber criminals. We do not say so without reason. Sending money to crooks is not a smart move no matter what kind of computer threat you encounter because it is unclear whether you will really solve your problems by making a payment. Speaking about this particular situation, the Kraken Cryptor 1.5 Ransomware encounter, we are sure this infection will not be deleted from your system even if you transfer a ransom. On top of that, you cannot be 100% sure that you could really unlock your files. Read more »

bkp@cock.li Ransomware

Have you found a window with a padlock image claiming that “All your files have been encrypted!” opened on your Desktop? If so, bkp@cock.li Ransomware must have infiltrated your computer and already done the damage. bkp@cock.li Ransomware is nothing else than a harmful malicious application that seeks to obtain money from users. It locks personal files on affected computers for the same reason as well.

Actually, we do not even recommend sending money to malicious software developers because they will definitely take your money, but there are no guarantees that the working decryption tool will be sent to you. The ransomware infection will not be erased from your computer, no matter you pay money or not. Read more »
