Remove Virus (Recover Encrypted Files)

6 Jun Virus is one of the most dangerous and perilous data-encrypting malware of recent times. It is capable to sneak in the marked PC secretly and starts to encrypt the targeted files. It adds particular extension name in the targeted files that shows that the file has been encrypted and it cannot be accessed any further. The extension name is .SEPSIS which is added as the suffix. It can target varieties of files including multimedia files such as mp4, jpg, avi, mkv and so on. It can lock files such as MS Office docs. When you try to access the encrypted files, it shows a ransom note which opens in the browser as .html file or covers the screen as text file. It uses powerful AES encryption cipher algorithm for data encryption. Interestingly, it also tries to delete “Volume Shadow Copies” from Windows OS using the command:

vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet

This command deletes the virtual data backup that is created by the Operating System. According to its ransom note, there is no way for the victims to recover the encrypted files unless they buy the decryption code by paying some ransom money. The amount of ransom money changes from one victims to another. It basically depends on how early you respond after receiving the ransom note. It warns you to pay the ransom money within 24 hours of time otherwise their data will get deleted permanently. However, cyber-experts never recommend paying money to cyber-criminals. This is a spam because you will not receive the original decryption key even after the ransom money payment is done. They either provide the duplicate key or empty folder. Further, they record your personal sensitive information and leads to identity theft. They can cheat highly personal data such as bank account details, password, credit and debit card information and so on. Frist of all, you should not communicate with the recommended email ID nor should follow any command or instruction.

How to Recover Files Encrypted by Virus

As it is mentioned earlier in the blog, it is never recommended to pay the ransom money. It is wastage and you will eventually be cheated. If you want to recover your files then you should try to use alternate tricks such as using Backup files. You can also search for “Volume Shadow Copies” because many a times, the ransomware fails to delete them. Using data recovery software is also an option. However, before you use any of these data recovery steps, make sure that your work-station is free from malware.
