BitKangoroo Ransomware

What is BitKangoroo Ransomware?

Do you have 1862 US Dollars just lying around? If you do not, fulfilling the demands of the BitKangoroo Ransomware might be complicated. When this devious infection slithers in, it encrypts your files and then requests a payment of 1 Bitcoin – which, at the moment, translates to the sum above – to be paid within an hour. Even if money is not an issue, paying the ransom is risky because it is unlikely that the promised decryption key would be provided to you after paying it. Needless to say, you are in a sticky situation if this ransomware has invaded your operating system and encrypted your files. The good news is that you should be able to find a decryptor that can decrypt your files for free, and that is not something that happens often. Hopefully, you manage to get your files decrypted, and you can delete BitKangoroo Ransomware without any hesitation. Note that if your files are freed, the malicious components are still active, and you will not be safe until you remove them from your PC.testtesttest

How does BitKangoroo Ransomware work?

BitKangoroo Ransomware is similar to RSAUtil Ransomware, BlackRose Ransomware, and all other malicious infections from this category. All of these threats encrypt files and then demand payments. In the case of the ransomware we are discussing in this report, it does not require you to contact cyber criminals first, which is how many ransomware threats operate. This infection immediately launches a window with the demand of 1 BTC. The window also displays the Bitcoin Address to which you are meant to transfer the money. Unfortunately, because the window paralyzes the Desktop, you cannot check out the situation. In reality, although you cannot close the window – when you do, a pop-up shows up suggesting that your files will be deleted if you close it – you can terminate a process that is responsible for it. This process is called “BitKangoroo,” and you can terminate it via the Task Manager, which you can launch by tapping keys Ctrl+Shift+Esc. Of course, you should terminate the process only if you are sure that you will not pay the ransom requested by BitKangoroo Ransomware.

If you were to disable the BitKangoroo Ransomware window, you would find the “.BitKangoroo” extension appended to some of your files. These are the files that were corrupted by the ransomware. Although a decryption key should help you decrypt these files, there are no guarantees that this key would be provided to you if you paid the ransom and then confirmed that by emailing cyber criminals at Have you assessed the damage and found that the files that were encrypted by the malicious ransomware are currently backed up on external drives or online? If that is the case, the only thing you need to worry about is removing BitKangoroo Ransomware. Of course, if you get your hands on a legitimate file decryptor that works, you can use it too. Overall, the biggest concern for malware research team is that you delete this infection as soon as possible, and there are a few different ways in which you can do that.
