Kampret Ransomware

Kampret Ransomware

If the malicious Kampret Ransomware has invaded your operating system, your personal files are now likely to have the “.lockednikampret” extension appended to them. This indicates that the file was encrypted, and, unfortunately, you cannot decrypt it yourself. The infection encrypts the targeted files – such as photos, media files, and documents – using the AES encryption algorithm, and you need a special decryption key to unlock them. So, how do you get this key? Unfortunately, it is in the hands of the cyber criminals who have created the devious ransomware. Can you convince them to just give this key to you? It seems like you cannot because the infection was created to coerce you into paying money for it, and so you are expected to open your wallet. Regrettably, we cannot guarantee that you would be able to decrypt all of the corrupted files even if you paid the ransom. Whether or not you follow the instructions of cyber criminals and get your files back, deleting Kampret Ransomware is crucial, and you can continue reading to learn how to get rid of this malicious threat.

Dimakadima.com

Dima Kadima is a browser extension which promises to make it possible to “search for and take the most interesting quizzes”, but, in reality, it sets Dimakadima.com (home.dimakadima.com) which becomes the default homepage and search provider.

If it is the browser you use every day too, it will not be long before you notice changes applied to your browser. Most probably, the presence of Dimakadima.com will not surprise you at all if you have downloaded and installed the Dima Kadima extension willingly from any of its official sources. Of course, it will be the opposite if you are sure that you have not clicked on the Download button with the intention of getting it. In this case, it is very likely that this undesirable browser extension promoting a search tool set on your Google Chrome browser has found a way how to enter the system without permission. It is up to you whether to let it stay or not, but you should be aware of the fact that the search tool set on your browsers is not 100% trustworthy.
