EbolaRnsmwr Ransomware

EbolaRnsmwr Ransomware

Ransomware infections are one of those computer threats that apply changes once they infiltrate computers. EbolaRnsmwr Ransomware will apply changes too if it ever slithers onto your computer. Luckily, this malicious application is still in development and thus should not encrypt your files if it ever happens that it successfully enters your computer. Also, this infection is not prevalent, which means that you should not encounter it if you are cautious. Security specialists highly recommend keeping security software installed on the system. Additionally, ignoring all attachments from suspicious emails might considerably lower the chance of encountering EbolaRnsmwr Ransomware. If you have still encountered this threat, it must be removed as soon as possible. Do not worry; it is very likely that it has not encrypted a single file on your computer even though it tries to convince you that “your files got encrypted, what means you can’t use them anymore.” Have you encountered the updated version of EbolaRnsmwr Ransomware that has locked files in all the major directories on your PC? In such a case, you should not rush to pay a ransom to cyber criminals – you have no guarantees that the ransom will fix your problem. In our opinion, the malware removal is the first thing any user who encounters it has to do in the first place. Read more »

Sicck Ransomware

Sicck Ransomware

Sicck Ransomware is a malicious application that encrypts the victim’s data and then threatens to share it on the Internet if the user does not pay the requested amount of Bitcoins in three days. Unfortunately, the asked amount of money is not a small sum, which is why we would not recommend risking it. Especially, when there are no guarantees, the hackers will provide the needed decryption key. Even if they promise to do so and encrypt a couple of files to prove they have the required decryption tools it does not mean they cannot trick you, for example, ask for more money. To learn more about the threat you could have a look at our full article. Moreover, if you choose not to pay the ransom, we advise deleting Sicck Ransomware because it unattended could still be dangerous. At the end of this page, you can find instructions showing how to remove it manually. Naturally, if they appear too challenging, you should leave the task to a legitimate antimalware tool.

German Jigsaw .spaß

German Jigsaw .spaß

If you use the German language on your operating system, you are the prime target of German Jigsaw .spaß malware, a malicious file-encrypting infection that was created to make you pay a huge ransom in return for a file decryptor. The ransom is $500, but you are requested to pay it in Bitcoin, which is a highly popular crypto-currency. At the time of research, $500 (if we assume that $ stands for USD) converted to around 0.12 BTC. Of course, you should check the conversion rates yourself because they shift often. Whether you think this ransom is big or small, paying it is a bad idea. If you make the payment to the 1CpnhbLaqLj5NgXwYVQ5aXmrMzvhzjehmm Bitcoin Wallet, your money will be gone forever. Recovering it will not be possible. Unfortunately, that is why cyber criminals are unlikely to give you a decryption key. They simply do not need to, and they cannot be forced to do it. Of course, the choice is yours, and if you decide to take the risk, you are free to do so. If a miracle happens, and your files are restored, do not forget that you must delete German Jigsaw .spaß malware ASAP. Different removal methods are discussed in this post. Read more »
