What is Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware?
Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware will not let you sleep at night until you transfer the ransom fee to its creators. Of course, you have to be stronger than that because giving your money away to these criminals is not an option. Please remove Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware from your system, along with other potential threats that might be present on your computer. Malicious programs usually travel in packs, so you should scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner to figure out just how many unwanted files and applications have been deleted from the PC. Only when your system is safe and clean again can you transfer back the copies of your files.
Where does Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware come from?
We will go back to the question of your files again, but for now, we should mention the origins of this application. Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware is based on the CrySIS Ransomware engine, and so it shares its “backbone” with a list of other unwanted programs that have been terrorizing users for quite some time now. For instance, we know that this application is very similar to Diablo_diablo2@aol.com Ransomware, A_Princ@aol.com Ransomware, Legioner_seven@aol.com Ransomware, Ninja_gaiver@aol.com Ransomware, and so on.
All these programs are distributed in a very similar manner, and we believe that you must have installed the installer file for Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware on your system accidentally when you opened an attachment from some spam email message. The problem with spam email these days is that some of those messages may look like the real deal. You may think that they are notifications from your financial institution or invoices from some online store. Sometimes we click such things without any second thought, forgetting that this is one of the most common malware distribution methods. Thus, when we take a step back it is already too late: Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware settles down on our computer.
What does Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware do?
Unlike other programs from the same family, this ransomware application is a lot more eloquent about what it wants from you. Once the file encryption is complete, the program will display a ransom note on your desktop. This note will tell you that your files have been encrypted, and now you have to recover them by contacting the people behind this infection. Here is an extract from the message:
All your files are now encrypted using cryptographically strong algorithm.
Without the original key recovery is impossible.
To get the decoder and the original key, you need to email as at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is in your interest to respond as soon as possible to ensure the restoration of your files.
P.S. only in case you do not receive a response from the first email address within 48 hours, please use this alternative email: email@example.com
As you can see, the main keyword we use in this article is the secondary email address given in the ransom note. The fact that this infection needs at least two email addresses shows just how unstable the program’s server is. You see, if you do not receive a response from the primary email address, it means that their server has gone down, and now you have to use the secondary email. But who can guarantee that the second email would not go down, too? Consequently, who can guarantee that the communication with these criminals is secure and that the money you send would really reach them? What’s more, who can guarantee that the decryption tool would reach YOU?
As you can see, there are many question marks in this equation, and the bottom line is that it is not safe to engage in any kind of transaction with the hackers behind this infection. Rather than that, you should delete the program at once.
How do I remove Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware?
In the first paragraph, we mentioned copies of your files. We meant a file backup where you keep copies of your documents. It could be a cloud drive or an external disk. What’s more, you may not be aware of that, but we are sure that you have quite a few important files save in your email inbox, too. Thus, you can transfer all of those files back once you remove Bitcoinrush@imail.com Ransomware. It is not a good idea to copy and paste the documents while the ransomware is still in your system because the healthy files might get encrypted, too. Should you encounter any difficulties while trying to remove the infection, please feel free to contact us.
