Hrhr Ransomware

What is Hrhr Ransomware?

Hrhr Ransomware is practically another name malware researchers seem to have given to refer to " File Extension" Ransomware. Our malware experts at say that this malware threat is the new version of Yyto Ransomware, which emerged last summer. If this vicious program manages to slither onto your system, you may have to say goodbye to your  precious files because this beast can encrypt them and thus render them unusable. Although your attackers offer you a way out by paying them money for the decryption key, we do not believe it is the best thing to do. In fact, it is always risky to contact such cyber criminals and send them money, too. It is quite possible that they will infect your again if they see a potential "gold mine" in you. We recommend that you act immediately and remove Hrhr Ransomware from your PC.

Where does Hrhr Ransomware come from?

If you find this dangerous threat on your computer, it is quite likely that a spam e-mail managed to draw your attention and you opened it. In fact, it is not enough to open this spam because you also need to execute the attached file. This file is the malicious executable itself. Obviously, if you want to open this file, you will simply execute this dangerous attack. No wonder why you cannot delete Hrhr Ransomware without losing your files. This is why we suggest that you be more careful around your mails. Whenever in doubt, you should not open a mail, let alone its attachment. It is much safe to send an e-mail to the sender to find out if it is really meant for you. Chances are the sender does not even exist, but if he or she does, may not know anything about this mail. But this is not the only way how cyber criminals can infect you with such serious infections.

If you do not keep your browsers and Java and Flash drivers always up-to-date, you could harm your system by landing on malicious sites with Exploit Kits. It is clear that you can easily protect your computer against such a terrible cyber attack if you update your programs regularly and avoid clicking on unsafe third-party advertisements, too. You also need to understand that using dodgy file-sharing sites for downloading free programs can be very dangerous as you can drop malicious bundles containing such ransomware programs with a single click. All in all, if you find out that you have been infected, you should not hesitate to remove Hrhr Ransomware from your computer.
