Unfortunately, it is most likely that this infection was caught in the development stage, and there is a chance that it will start actively spreading and encrypting personal users’ files. If it succeeds, it could lead to permanent loss of these files because decryption is almost never possible.

Boris HT Ransomware

Rpd Ransomware

Rpd Ransomware

A new variant of Rapid Ransomware – Rpd Ransomware – has been recently detected by specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com. It has been classified as a ransomware infection right away because it has been observed that this malicious application encrypts files on victims’ computers. It locks pretty much all files it manages to find, including users’ precious images, documents, and all other media files it comes across. There is only one group of files it does not touch – system files. It means that the ransomware infection does not ruin the operating system running on the computer. Research has shown that Rpd Ransomware encrypts all files using the AES encryption algorithm. This means that it might be impossible to unlock them without the special decryptor. If you drop an email to the email address found in the ransom note, you will most likely be offered to purchase it, but you should not do that by any means even if you can easily afford it. Unfortunately, it might be impossible to unlock files without the special decryptor because this malicious application also deletes Shadow Volume Copies of files so that users could not recover them easily. The only thing that works in all the cases is restoring files from a backup. Read more »

Everbe 2.0 Ransomware

Everbe 2.0 Ransomware

It is easy to let Everbe 2.0 Ransomware in by making a simple mistake. This mistake could be opening a corrupted spam email attachment that is introduced to you using an incredibly believable message. You could also make the mistake of downloading the launcher of the ransomware by interacting with a malicious downloader/installer. These can be presented on unreliable file-sharing sites, as well as via pop-up scams. If you are fooled into letting the infection in, it wastes no time. First, it deletes shadow volume copies to make the recovery of files more complicated or even impossible. Some Windows users choose system-provided backups, but that is not what we recommend doing because cyber criminals have figured out how to affect internal backups. Instead, we recommend using online storage services or external drives. Hopefully, your personal files are already backed up externally, and the ransomware has no way of blackmailing you. Continue reading to learn more about this. We also show how to delete Everbe 2.0 Ransomware. Read more »

CryptConsole v3 Ransomware

CryptConsole v3 Ransomware

You do not want any threat invading your personal space, but you definitely do not want to face CryptConsole v3 Ransomware. This is a file-encryptor that destroys everything in its way. Of course, it does not encrypt system files because it needs a functional operating system, and, also, it is easy for victims to reinstall their systems. On the other hand, recovering personal files might not be possible. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team recommends relying on file backups. If they do not exist, you might be leaning towards fulfilling the demands introduced to you by the creator of the infection; however, that is not a good idea. Why? The simple answer is that you cannot trust anything that cyber criminals tell you or instruct you to do. Have you already gave in and paid the ransom? Most likely, the promised “automatic decryptor” was not given to you in return. Hopefully, you can find a way to recover files, but, regardless of the outcome, you must remove CryptConsole v3 Ransomware, and we can show how to do it. Read more »
