Cezar Ransomware

What is Cezar Ransomware?

Ransomware infections are one of the most prevalent malicious applications these days. Cezar Ransomware is the newest infection that has fallen into the category of ransomware. The names of these threats change, but they keep acting the same. That is, they try to obtain money from users by any means. Because of this, you might find your screen locked or files encrypted after encountering the ransomware infection. Cezar Ransomware is no exception. It also locks users’ files following the successful entrance on their PCs. Although it does not demand a ransom immediately after encrypting users’ files, specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have no doubt that it also wants users’ money. Needless to say, paying cyber criminals money is the worst users can do because instead of getting their files decrypted, they might be left without their money and personal files. To put it differently, they might still not be able to unlock a single file even if they give malware developers the only thing they want. There is no point in transferring cyber criminals money for the decryption of files also because a free decryptor for unlocking files encrypted by Cezar Ransomware has already been released, and it can be downloaded easily from the web. You should find it by entering the “Cezar Ransomware decryptor” search query in the search box of your default search tool. Before you take action to get your files back, make sure the ransomware infection is no longer active on your system because it might lock the decryption, tool making it impossible to use it.

Where does Cezar Ransomware come from?

Malware researchers who have analyzed Cezar Ransomware say that this infection should be mainly spread via spam emails even though there is no sufficient data to tell what is the main distribution method to disseminate it. It is spread as an attachment in these emails, or users might find a malicious link inside a spam email received and initiate the entrance of this infection by clicking on this link once. Some users might also allow Cezar Ransomware to enter their systems by downloading software from some kind of corrupted page. You must erase this infection from your PC no matter how it has slithered onto it and go to install a security application after erasing it because it is very likely that more sophisticated crypto-threats could easily enter your system again if you do nothing.

What does Cezar Ransomware do?

Cezar Ransomware starts working on victims’ systems the second it arrives on computers. To be frank, it does not perform many activities on victims’ machines. It first scans it with the intention of finding where pictures, documents, videos, music, and other users’ files are located, and then it encrypts them all by placing one of the extensions .id-.[JasonStewem@aolonline.top].cesar or .id-.[btc2017@india.com].cesar at the end of each encrypted file. You will not only find a bunch of encrypted files, but you should also be able to locate a new file HELP.txt on Desktop. It contains only one sentence:

To decrypt files, write to my email gladius_rectus@aol.com

You can write an email out if curiosity, but, in our opinion, there is no point in spending time on writing emails to cyber criminals because there is basically no doubt that they will ask money in exchange for the tool that can decrypt files. You should not purchase it because you might not even get it. Also, nobody knows if cyber criminals really have such a tool. Therefore, you should download a free decryptor from the Internet and use it instead of going to transfer your money to malicious software developers. You can also restore your files from a backup. No matter what you choose, first go to remove the ransomware infection completely.
