What is Happydayz@india.com Ransomware?

Like most of the malware, Happydayz@india.com Ransomware can enter your system without being invited. Sadly, some users may realize that their computers were infected only after they see the damage this threat has done to their files. As the research shows, the ransomware targets data you keep on the computer. To be more precise, it might damage your personal files by enciphering them with a secure cryptosystem. The malicious application was programmed to act this way so that the cyber criminals who created it could demand payment for decryption tools, which are supposed to restore the damaged data. However, by doing this you could risk losing your money in vain, so before you make a rash decision, we advise reading the article to learn more about Happydayz@india.com Ransomware. If you decide to refuse the malware’s creators, we recommend removing the infection with our provided deletion instructions available below.test

Where does Happydayz@india.com Ransomware come from?

The malware seems a lot similar to Supermagnet@india.com Ransomware, Bitcoinpay@india.com Ransomware, and some other related infections that our specialist researched some time ago. These malicious applications were spread through Spam emails, so we believe the cyber criminals behind Happydayz@india.com Ransomware could have used the same distribution method. Such emails may come from unknown sources, and they might carry attachments that do not necessarily look like executable files, e.g. it might be pictures, various documents, videos, and so on. Thus, users have to be extremely cautious if they want to avoid similar threats. If you suspect the file could be harmful, it is better not to open it. You may also clear your doubts by scanning such attachment with a reliable antimalware tool.

How does Happydayz@india.com Ransomware work?

The malicious program employs AES-256 encryption algorithm with which it enciphers files found on the user’s computer, for example, photos, text files and other documents, videos, images, etc. You can quickly identify damaged data by checking if it has a second extension called {Happydayz@india.com}. Otherwise, the files should look the same since the malware does not change the original title. What’s more, soon after Happydayz@india.com Ransomware finishes encrypting your data it should announce its presence by opening a pop-up containing a message from the cyber criminals.

According to the malware’s opened window, its creators have a decryption tool and are willing to sell it if the user contacts them via email. Instead of stating the price the cyber criminals say that it “depends on how fast you write” to them. Since you cannot know whether the decryption tool will be actually sent to you, it is not advisable to put up with such demands. Therefore, we advise users not to give in under pressure and think about possible outcomes carefully. Clearly, if the malicious program’s developers refuse to send the needed tools, the user could lose not only enciphered data but also his savings. To put it in other words, if you do not want to gamble with your money, it might be best to pay no attention to this message and eliminate the infection. Later, you could try to recover damaged files with special software or replace such data with copies, provided you have any on non-infected devices.
