BlackShades Crypter Ransomware

BlackShades Crypter Ransomware

If you have not employed authentic anti-malware software to protect your PC, and you personal files are not backed up, BlackShades Crypter Ransomware is your worst enemy. This clandestine threat slithers in and uses an encryption algorithm to encrypt certain files. Although it claims to use the RSA encryption algorithm, we cannot confirm this. Unfortunately, whichever encryption method is used, it is unlikely that you will be able to decrypt your files yourself. In fact, even third-party decryption software might be helpless against this threat.
