It has world-wide geographical presence and the number of victims is increasing very rapidly. It can infect any Windows based PC, any browser and the entire OS version.

It is confirmed that the ultimate aim of developers behind TeslaCrypt V1 Ransomware is to cheat the money from the victims. The compromised data are locked and it gets inaccessible. Whenever user tries to access, a ransom note appears on the screen. This note could in a text or html file format. This contains all the details regarding the file decryption and a threatening message to pay the ransom money within particular time otherwise data will get damaged or corrupted permanently. The decryption key that is it talks about in the ransom note is special characters code that is stored in the server belonging to cyber-criminals. Separate infected PC has separate decryption key. As per the cyber-criminals claims, the decryption key will unlock the files immediately. In order to win the trust, it demands the user to provide one of the encrypted files of their choice and promises it to decrypt for free.

How to Recover the Files (Get Decryption Key /Alternate Way)

As mentioned earlier, paying the ransom money to cyber-criminals to get the decryption is always an option for you. The ransom money usually ranges from $200 to $500 which you can negotiate by contacting the cyber-criminals through the email ID provided in the ransom note. However, the biggest problem is that there is no guarantee that you will receive the original decryption key after making the payment. The cyber-criminals are always ready to cheat the innocent users and make maximum money as they could. In the past, there has been a maximum case where the developers of TeslaCrypt V1 Ransomware received the ransom money in their Bitcoin wallet account and didn’t provide the original decryption key. The communication links got broken and the victims got cheated in two way.
