What is 7zipper Ransomware?
7zipper Ransomware is an infection that was specifically designed to slither into your operating system, place your personal files into a password-protected 7zip archive, and introduce you to a ransom. It is still unclear how this infection spreads, but Anti-Spyware-101.com malware analysts warn that ransomware infections can slither into your operating system using various different security backdoors. While it is possible that it will slither in without your permission or knowledge, it is also possible that you will download it yourself. For example, the malicious launcher could be introduced to you as an attractive file via a misleading spam email. If you do not know how the ransomware has slithered in, the smartest thing you could do is scan your operating system with a legitimate malware scanner to check which other infections you might be dealing with. Hopefully, you only need to delete 7zipper Ransomware. Though it might be easy for you to get rid of this threat manually, Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers strongly recommend using automated anti-malware software.
How does 7zipper Ransomware work?
What do you know about ransomware infections? We have recently reported RansomPlus Ransomware, LataRebo Locker Ransomware, and hundreds of other infections that are placed under the same category. Unfortunately, most of these infections are very unique, which always makes their detection and removal challenging. The suspicious 7zipper Ransomware is unique as well because instead of encrypting every single file separately – which is how most threats of this kind operate – it places them in a single archive. To ensure that you cannot access these files, the archive is locked using a strong password. The name of the archive file might be unique in every case, but the “.7zipper” extension attached to the name should give it away. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that you will not be able to retrieve the password even if you follow the demands represented via the ransom note (“Saiba como recuperar seus arquivos.txt”). This file might be placed on the Desktop, but you might also find it copied in random folders. When you remove 7zipper Ransomware, do not forget to eliminate this file as well because it is only taking up space.
The purpose of the suspicious ransom file created by 7zipper Ransomware is to push you into emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. There are plenty of ransomware infections that demand the victims to communicate with cyber criminals via emails, but, in most cases, communication is possible. In this case, it is not because the email domain has already expired. This is the main reason why we believe that 7zipper Ransomware is no longer spreading, and is no longer a threat to the masses. If it is spreading, it is most likely to affect users who live in Brazil, Portugal, and other countries where Portuguese is spoken. Of course, if the ransomware manages to slither in and corrupt your files, you might be unable to retrieve the key because of the obvious communication issue. That does not mean that you should give up. Instead, research password decoders that might be capable of unlocking the 7zip archive for you. What should you do after that? The first thing you need to do, of course, is to remove the malicious ransomware. After that, you need to set up a file backup system to ensure that your files are secured even if you face ransomware again.
How to delete 7zipper Ransomware
Even if 7zipper Ransomware fails to lock up your files, you cannot leave this infection unattended. Remove it immediately, and, if you cannot do so manually, utilize anti-malware software that can perform the elimination automatically. Since the launcher of this infection might have a random name, and its location might be unique for every user as well, the manual removal guide is pretty basic. If you manage to delete the infection yourself, make sure you scan your PC afterward to make sure that leftovers do not exist, as well as other infections. If you decide to employ software to have your operating system cleaned, we advise using anti-malware software because it can get rid of malware and protect your PC against other infections at the same time.
