Remove Ransomware and Recover Encrypted Files

19 May Ransomware is a file encrypting malware that locks most of the files stored in the infected computer hard-disk. It encrypts all the important and regularly used files and folders especially MS Office docs, multimedia files, text, documents, and applications that you access on regular basis. Its intrusion is also very silent and it doesn’t ask for any kind of official approval to store its payloads and files. Once it settles down, it spread its payload files in multiple locations. It immediately does a System scanning in order to search the files that it could encrypt. Our researches shows that Ransomware uses the combination of AES and RSA encryption cipher that is very hard to crack. Unless you have the decryption key, you cannot access the locked files.

It gives an impression that the only way to recover the files is to pay the ransom money within a particular time frame.
