How to remove Ransomware (Complete Process)

21 Sep Ransomware is yet another data-encrypting malware like EOEO AutoIt Ransomware, Matrix-FASTBOB Ransomware, Locdoor ransomware and so on. It is associated to Crysis ransomware and many cyber-experts are considering it as its updated version. Like its predecessor, it encrypts most used files such multimedia files, audios, videos, PDF files, MS Office documents and so on. It does a quick scan of the System hard-disk in order to search such files and immediately begins the encryption process. Every file that it encrypts, its extension changes to .monro. It also uses a text file as ransom note and its name are “FILE ENCRYPTED.TXT” or info.hta.

More Details on Ransomware

Like any ransomware, Ransomware also aims to make money for its developers. As clearly mentioned in its ransom note, it charges a heavy amount as ransom for getting the decryption key. Every file has a unique decryption key and they are stored in a remote server and they can only be accessed by the associated developers. On the other hand, the cyber-experts have not been able to develop the free decryption key. It is very difficult to recover the encrypted files manually because cyber-criminals try to remove the “Shadow Volume Copies” as well. So, you can only rely on backup files that you have created on some external storage devices. If you don’t have the backup then you are in trouble.

Paying Ransom money is a Solution?

If you thinking of paying ransom money to get the encrypted files back then you must hold on. This is definitely not the solution. In many cases, the cyber-criminals totally ignore the victims after receiving the money. They don’t respond to user’s communication. So, this is like a double cheat. You will lose you money as well as not get the files back. Hence, your prime focus should be on removing Ransomware from your PC so that it could not encrypt or damage any other files further. So, first of all, you should scan your PC with a powerful anti-malware tool that has strong scanning algorithm and programming logics. Once your PC get free from ransomware and malware, you can use some data recovery software to get you files back.

How Doss Ransomware Attacks?

There are multiple ways of data-encrypting malware attack. However, the most popular are bundling and spam email attachments. Usually, the related scripts and payloads come bundled with freeware, shareware or spam emails. The bundlers or installers never reveal anything about the attachments. The related spam email pretends itself as if it has been sent by some reputed organization or company. So, don’t download anything without scanning it with a powerful anti-malware tool.
