C4H Ransomware

C4H Ransomware

Do you believe that C4H Ransomware has invaded your Windows operating system and corrupted your personal files? That is very easy to figure out because once this infection encrypts files, it attaches the “.C4H” extension to their names. This extension is added as a mere marker, and even if you delete it from the files’ names, they will not be restored. Some victims might rush to remove C4H Ransomware to restore their files, and while this threat must be eliminated from the infected systems, the files cannot be recovered in that way. In fact, we do not know if your files can be recovered at all. Perhaps you can find and employ a legitimate third-party decryptor, but you certainly do not want to trust cybercriminals to help you. They promote their own decryptor in return for money, but they are unlikely to give you anything once you send the payment. Needless to say, this is a tricky situation, but we hope that we will be able to help you untangle the mess. Read more »

Sqpc Ransomware

Sqpc Ransomware

Sqpc Ransomware does not care about you and your files, and that is why it slithers into your Windows operating system and encrypts every single personal file that exists. It does not touch system files, but that is done only to ensure that the system continues running normally. After all, the infection needs a functional system to make its demands. After your personal files are encrypted, the threat drops a file, via which you are informed that a ransom of $490 must be paid in return for a decryptor. Here at Anti-Spyware-101.com, we hope that you have not wasted your savings yet. We also hope that you still can recover your files, or at least replace the most important ones. A tool named ‘STOP Decryptor’ was presented by malware researchers, and although it should decrypt all files encrypted with an offline key, it cannot guarantee full recovery of all files. But you might be able to use backups as replacements. First, however, you need to remove Sqpc Ransomware. Read more »

Trix Ransomware

Trix Ransomware

It also could be camouflaged as a document or a photo file in a misleading spam email. Do you remember downloading or opening any files recently? If you do, you might figure out the source of the infection. Hopefully, you will become more cautious in the future. Right now, however, you might need to delete Trix Ransomware from your Windows operating system. If you are worried about the removal of the threat and the decryption of files, we are ready to help you. Read more »

Zemblax Ransomware

Zemblax Ransomware

If Zemblax Ransomware slithered in, we know two things: your Windows operating system lacks reliable protection and you are careless online. If your system was protected, the launcher of the infection could not slip in. What if your system has a security tool installed to guard you? If important security updates are missing, you are not protected. When it comes to your own carelessness, we have to consider the possibility that you were tricked into letting the launcher of the infection in. This launcher could be presented as a document file via spam emails, as a harmless file via bundled downloaders, and so on. The ultimate goal is to make sure that the threat slithers in silently and does not alert any security tools. If those do not exist, the job is very easy. Afterward, the threat can start encrypting files, and if it completes the task successfully, the attackers get the control they need. That is because even if you delete Zemblax Ransomware, your files remain encrypted. Read more »
