What is Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware?
If you are not allowed to open your files, and they all have the new extension .firstname.lastname@example.org!!, it is very likely that Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware, which is a dangerous threat, has entered your computer without permission. Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware is a file-encrypting threat that locks files to get money from users. Even though this threat leaves a .txt file (How to decrypt.txt or CryptoLocker.txt) on Desktop after it finishes encrypting files, you will not be told that the decryption tool costs money immediately. In fact, unlike other ransomware infections, Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware does not provide much information after the encryption of files. Of course, you will find out sooner or later that cyber criminals expect you to transfer money for the decryptor. You should not do that, and we will explain to you why we think so further in this article. Continue reading!
What does Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware do?
Users find out that the decryption key that can unlock files for them is not cheap only after they write an email to email@example.com. We do not know how much the tool costs, but it is definitely quite expensive, so if you are sure that you are not going to pay money, you do not even need to contact cyber criminals. Believe us; the decryption tool cyber criminals have is definitely not the only piece of software that can help you to gain access to your files. Besides, nobody knows whether or not this tool will be sent to you. Therefore, you should not buy it no matter what its price is. Of course, we do not suggest keeping your files encrypted either. There are, actually, two ways to unlock those files without spending money on the decryptor. First, you can recover your files after you remove Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware fully from a backup. Evidently, you will not be able to do that if you do not have a backup. In such a case we suggest that you download the free decryptor, which has been recently released by security specialists, from the web and use it instead. You will find it quickly yourself using the search engine.
Fortunately, Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware is not like other ransomware infections. In other words, even though it encrypts files and seeks to obtain money from innocent users, it does not lock the screen, it does not block the Task Manager, Registry Editor, or CMD, and it does not even change the Desktop image. As we have already told you in this article, it only creates a new .txt file on Desktop and encrypts files it finds stored on the computer. On top of that, it might connect to its C&C server as well. Even though Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware is not a very sophisticated infection, it needs to be removed as soon as possible if you wish your future files to be safe. It should not be hard for you to get rid of it, especially if you have ever erased a malicious application yourself.
Where does Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware come from?
There are several different ways ransomware infections are distributed. First of all, it has been found that they might be distributed as attachments in spam emails.

Believe us; even the most harmless-looking attachments might be dangerous, so you should stay away from these emails. Security specialists suggest being very careful on the web too in order not to allow Trojans to enter the computer too because they are known to be able to drop Centrumfr@india.com Ransomware or a similar threat on the computer as well.
