Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware is a devious Windows infection that enters your operating system using clandestine methods. Whether this program slithers in via a corrupted spam email attachment or gets downloaded by a malicious installer, it will hide itself until all of your personal files are encrypted. If this malicious infection successfully encrypts your personal files, it can proceed to demand a ransom from you. According to our research, at the moment, this ransom is 1.24 BTC, which is around 507 USD or 463 EUR. Every user is given 7 days to make the payment, and, if the payment is not made, the ransom supposedly rises to 2.48 BTC (~1014 USD/925 EUR). Note that the Bitcoin currency is quite unstable and the currency ratios fluctuate frequently. All in all, the sums are high, and it is unlikely that many victims have this kind of money lying around. Unfortunately, at the moment, it is impossible to decrypt personal files in other ways, which means that paying the ransom might be the only way to regain control over your files. Of course, this does not change the fact that you must remove Cerber Ransomware. Read more »

MoneroPay Ransomware

MoneroPay Ransomware

MoneroPay Ransomware, which is also sometimes referred to as SpriteCoin Ransomware, is a nasty malicious application that is distributed as a cryptocurrency miner. Specifically speaking, it is promoted as a tool for mining SpriteCoin, a digital currency that does not even exist. Because of this, it is not at all surprising that some users themselves allow the ransomware infection to enter their systems. If you have also installed MoneroPay Ransomware expecting that it will help you to earn some money, remove it immediately because it does not act as the miner and will never become a useful piece of software. It is only distributed by cyber crooks to extract money from users more easily. If you have already encountered this threat, do not even think about sending money to malicious software developers. You should primarily focus on the MoneroPay Ransomware removal. If you do not erase it from your system, it will continue working on your computer. Restarting the computer is not an effective solution to the problem in this case because it is one of these ransomware infections that create entries in the system registry to be able to start working automatically when the Windows OS launches. It means that you will disable it only by removing all malicious components from the system. We will help you to delete the ransomware infection (you will find more about its removal if you read the last paragraph), but we cannot promise that you could unlock your encrypted personal files because free decryption software does not exist and transferring money to cyber criminals is a nonsense.

Rsa-ni Ransomware

CryptWalker Ransomware

CryptWalker Ransomware

Some ransomware infections only trick victims into thinking that their data is encrypted or that the encrypted files will be deleted permanently. The CryptWalker ransomware is one of those threats that do what is said in the ransom note. If you have this threat on your computer, we encourage you to act immediately to remove the infection. This ransomware infection can delete your files, and the longer you wait, the more files you are going to lose.

The CryptWalker ransomware has the interface of the Jigsaw ransomware but displays different requirements in the so-called ransom warning. The files encrypted by the Jigsaw ransomware can be decrypted by a third-party decryption tool, and, if you choose to try some decryptor to restore your files affected by the CryptWalker threat, note that you do that on your own responsibility.
