All about QNBQW Ransomware
QNBQW Ransomware is a crypto-malware that encrypts the personal files and programs. It uses powerful AES-256 cryptography to encrypt the targeted files. After encryption, it shows ransom note asking the victim to pay heavy ransom money in exchange of the decryption key. The ransom note is named as Notice.txt. The extension of the locked files gets changed to .qnbqw and now they cannot be accessed. According to the ransom message, the money is to be paid in crypto-currency so that cyber-criminals identity remains hidden. The ransom note also contains an email ID namely firstname.lastname@example.org and victim ID which contains 700 characters. The amount from ransom money is unknown from ransom note and this means that you have to negotiate the ransom amount through the provided email ID.

The recovery of locked files is possible without paying ransom money as well. You have to use your “back Up files” or “Volume Shadow Copies” if available. In many cases, the ransomware fails to delete “Volume Shadow Copies” while encrypting the files.
