Remove Ransomware (How to Delete Completely)

7 Aug

Access the Files Encrypted by Ransomware Ransomware is a data-encrypting malware from Scarab family. Like its other version, it encrypts the personal files of victims and demands to pay certain ransom money in order to get decryption key and get their files accessible again. It uses AES cipher encryption for file encryption and data locking. It uses extension on every locked files and this is the initial symptom that the file has been locked. This extension is added to the name of the file as suffix. There will be no change in the original name of the file or its extension but an additional secondary extension gets added. The encrypted files could be a multimedia files such as audios, videos, images or files related to MS Office such as word document, excel sheet and so on. It also tries to delete the “Shadow Volume Copies” so that victims don’t recover the encrypted files from there.

In order to make the data encryption more efficient, it encrypts the backup files as well which are created on any locations within the PC hard-disk. Thus, all the viable ways of recovering the encrypted files are destroyed. So, whenever your PC gets infected with a serious infection like Ransomware, first of all, you should try to remove this malware payloads and scripts from the infected PC. Otherwise, it will continue the file encryption. But still, your files are encrypted and are inaccessible. So, in order to recover the files, you must have backup files in external storage devices. Sometime, ransomware leaves “Shadow Volume Copies” so you can check the backup files form there as well. Never follow the ransom note and pay the ransom money. It is totally a spam. You will not get the original decryption key ever after the complete decryption money is paid. So, paying money will be wastage. And most of all, it will be a financial help to cyber-criminals to make more of such malware.
