And there is definitely something to warn about. This malware has your personal files on the target, and if you let it in, it will go straight to your documents, videos, and pictures to encrypt them.

Pykw Ransomware

Pykw Ransomware

You do not want to find the “.pykw” extension added to your personal files’ names because that indicates that Pykw Ransomware has corrupted them. This malware can corrupt documents, media files, photos, and everything else that is unique within your operating system. System files can be replaced, and the threat also needs your system to function normally, therefore, such files are not touched. However, your personal files are not only non-essential but also not replaceable. Obviously, that is not the case if copies exist. If you have copies, remove Pykw Ransomware quickly, and once you are 100% sure that your system is malware-free and protected, you can transfer the copies in place of the encrypted files. And what if you cannot replace the files? There is a tool that can decrypt some files for free, but it does not work for everyone and with all files. In any case, whether or not you get your files back, you must delete the infection, and our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team is here to guide you. Read more »

GNS Ransomware

GNS Ransomware

Were your personal files corrupted by GNS Ransomware? If they were, you should be unable to read them, and that is because the ransomware encrypts them. What does that mean? To understand it more simply, you can think of passwords. If you password-protect a file or a folder, that file/folder gets encrypted. The purpose is to ensure that only you – or whoever else has the password – can access it. Well, when cybercriminals use encryption, they lock files so that you could no longer access them. What is the purpose of that? The attackers hope that if you need a decryptor, they could convince you to pay for one. Due to this, they corrupt the most sensitive files – your personal files. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that cybercriminals would give you a decryptor regardless of what you did. Due to this, we suggest focusing on the removal. Do you know how to delete GNS Ransomware? Read more »
