LeChiffre Ransomware

LeChiffre Ransomware

LeChiffre Ransomware is a recently discovered ransomware-type Trojan that has the ability to encrypt your personal files and obtain full control of your computer. It should automatically remove itself after encrypting your files, but the person who is in control of it might decide to leave it. Thus, you should delete its executable if it were to remain after the encryption was completed. The goal here is to extort money from you by offering a decryption key that you can only get after paying the ransom. This ransomware uses the most robust encryption algorithm that is impossible to crack using third-party software. However, we urge you not to pay the ransom as these hackers will only continue to make money of infecting users with ransomware. Read more »

7ev3n Ransomware

7ev3n Ransomware

One of the most feared malware infections are most probably Trojan ransomware programs, such as 7ev3n Ransomware. This Trojan is feared for a good reason. According to our malware specialists at Anti-Spyware-101.com, this ransomware can block your computer so that you cannot launch any executables and it encrypts all your major files at the same time, such as project files, databases, documents, and images as well. Letting this malware on board is a virtual suicide because you may easily lose all your precious files if you do not have a backup on an external HDD or flash drive. When it comes to understanding the damage such a Trojan can do to you and your computer, having security backups start to make a lot of sense. If you do not keep such a copy of your files, there is a good chance that you will never use them again when this infection strikes. Reports show that even if you decide to pay the unusually high ransom fee, it cannot be guaranteed that you will actually get the decryption key, i.e., the private key, which is stored on a secret remote server.

Therefore, this Trojan can behave in a number of different ways.
