Remove Virus and Recover Encrypted Files

11 Oct Virus is data-encrypting malware that has been designed and developed by cyber-criminals through hidden tear open-source. Many cyber-researchers has detected this malware over Internet and as per estimation, thousands of Windows based PC has already been infected. They get inside the targeted PC silently and do all sorts of perilous and malicious activities in a very secret way. This ransomware comes in the same category of perilous malware such as .qweuirtksd Files ransomware and Popcorn Ransomware. The cyber-criminals behind Virus has only one aim that is to make money and thus to achieve its goal, it compromise the System very badly. Virus encrypts data using the combination of AES and RSA encryption cipher. The targeted files become totally inaccessible. When users tries to access it, an error message (basically ransom note) appears on the screen. The name of this ransom note is ‘ReadMe_important.txt’ and this file is stored in every folder that contains the encrypted files. According to this ransom note, the victims have to pay $40,000 to get the decryption key. This note contains details regarding the payment method, email ID, and so on. In order to win the victims trust, it demands to provide one of the encrypted files and promises to decrypt it for free. Interestingly, they decrypt the single file in order to manipulate the victims. In general situation, the novice users easily trust them and agree to pay ransom money.

Does Paying Ransom Money for Virus is Solution

The cyber-criminals you are dealing with are professional in cyber-crimes. They know very well that how to cheat the innocent victims and get maximum from them. Coming to point that whether it is a solution to pay ransom money for getting the files and important data back? The simple answer is “No”. You cannot trust cyber-criminals that they will provide the original decryption key after receiving the money. It is very common with ransomware that the associated cyber-criminals didn’t provide the necessary decryption code even after getting the money in their account. All the communication channels between the victims and cyber-criminals get totally blocked. The victim feels cheated because of the loss of money and data as well.

Your data could be very crucial for you and you want to recover it any cost. As mentioned earlier, paying the ransom money is not the solution. You should try some alternative tricks such as using “Backup files” or “Volume Shadow Copies”. You can also try using some data recovery tool. However, before using all these tricks, it is important that your PC is free from malware. As long as the scripts and payload of Virus is there in the PC, you cannot recover your files. So, first of all, it is recommended to scan your PC with a  powerful anti-malware tool that has strong scanning algorithm and programming logics.
