Fairy Tail Ransomware

What is Fairy Tail Ransomware?

A new ransomware infection that shares similarities with Cryakl Ransomware has been detected by cyber criminals. It is called Fairy Tail Ransomware because it appends a long string with .fairytail at the end to all encrypted files. Yes, this malicious application is another crypto-threat that mercilessly locks files on victims’ computers. Researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com have observed that the quality of this ransomware infection is low, so it is not very likely that it will become very prevalent; however, a new polished version might be developed in the near future, so users should not leave their systems unprotected, specialists say. Fairy Tail Ransomware cannot be considered prevalent, but it does not mean that users cannot encounter it. Have you already encountered this infection? If yes, you must delete it from your computer right away. If you do nothing about its presence, it is only a question of time when it locks more files on your system because it creates an entry in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run so that it could continue doing its dirty job after the system restart. In other words, the Value it creates allows it to start working on system startup. The removal of this ransomware infection will not be very easy since it not only makes modifications in the system registry, but also copies itself to %TEMP%, but if you read this report before you go to erase this infection, you should manage to delete it manually.testtest

What does Fairy Tail Ransomware do?

Our researchers have carried out an in-depth analysis to find more about Fairy Tail Ransomware. The first thing they noticed is that its quality is terrible. Then, they realized that it acts the same as older ransomware-type infections. That is, it goes to lock files it finds on victims’ computers immediately after it copies itself to %TEMP% and creates a 10-digits Value in the system registry. It is impossible not to notice that files have been locked. You will not only find it impossible to open your media files, but you will also see a long string appended to them. For example, a file with an original name dog.jpg will become email-komar@tuta.io.ver-CL 1.4.0.0.id-3025144083-3@12@2018 4@16@28 AM5883152.fname-dog.jpg.fairytail after the successful entrance of Fairy Tail Ransomware. Once files are locked with a strong cipher, the ransomware infection places README.txt to all affected folders and opens a small panel. Both the panel and the .txt file contain the same sentence: “to decrypt file komar@tuta.io”. You can send an email to cyber criminals if you want to, but do not expect to get the decryption tool for free. Ransomware infections are used as tools to obtain money from users, so it is very likely that you will be asked to pay for the decryption tool in this case as well. It might be the only way to unlock files because ransomware infections use strong encryption algorithms to lock victims’ data, but we still do not recommend that you send money to cyber criminals because there are no guarantees that they will give you what you need after they receive your money. No matter what you decide, you will need to erase the ransomware infection from the system yourself.

Where does Fairy Tail Ransomware come from?

It is unclear how Fairy Tail Ransomware infiltrated your computer, but there is no doubt that it did not need your permission to appear on your system and make modifications on it. As our specialists’ previous experience shows, the majority of ransomware-type infections are distributed via spam emails. They look like harmless email attachments at first glance, so users open them out of curiosity and, unfortunately, infect their systems with malware. Users might also download ransomware infections from dubious websites or initiate their download by clicking on malicious links they come across while surfing the Internet.

How to delete Fairy Tail Ransomware
