Payms Ransomware

Payms Ransomware is a serious threat if it manages to “set foot” on your operating system. This ransomware seems to be a new variant of Jigsaw Ransomware, which is reported to be sold on the Dark Web for $139.

So after encrypting your personal files practically in all directories, you are informed about the payment method. This is a sensitive matter whether you pay or not and is totally up to you.

As a matter of fact, you should also be able to find a working file recovery tool since our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that the decrypter used for Jigsaw has been updated and should work for this ransomware as well.
