What is Ntk Ransomware?
Ntk Ransomware is a highly malicious computer infection that was first seen on 15 February 2017. You have to remove this application because it was designed to infect your PC by stealth and lock its screen. Thus, it was set to prevent you from using your computer until you pay an unspecified sum of money. Its developers are nothing short of criminals that want to extort money from you. You should not comply with their demands because you can easily get rid of this infection by following our guide. Please continue reading to find out how.
What does Ntk Ransomware do?
Our malware analysts have concluded that Ntk Ransomware was based on .Net framework. It features the x86 (32-bit) architecture but works on both 32-bit and 64-bit based systems. This particular ransomware has no connection to a command and control server. Therefore, the developer does not know how many PCs its ransomware has infected. Interestingly, the code needed to unlock your computer is hard coded in the ransomware itself. If you enter 15s4e56dsjdhfy87 in the dialog box, then this ransomware should unlock your PC.
Ntk Ransomware was designed to target French and English speaking users as these are the two languages that this ransomware supports. If your PC were to be infected with it, then you will first see a window with a black background asking you to enter the code. If you enter the correct code (15s4e56dsjdhfy87), then the window will be replaced by a blue window with instructions on what to do next. As mentioned, the code is hard coded into this ransomware, but if you did not know that, then you should contact the developer via email at email@example.com and receive instructions on how to pay the ransom. Then, the criminals will give you the code (they give the same code to all victims) so that you can enter it and begin the removal process.
Where does Ntk Ransomware come from?
Our malware researchers have received information that cyber criminals have made arrangements to distribute this ransomware via email. It is said that they have set up an email server dedicated to sending email spam that features an attached file that was designed to download Ntk Ransomware’s executable named Winban.exe on your PC and place in a hidden location. We want to note that the emails can be disguised as legitimate invoices or some other type of correspondence. The developers aim at making the emails as authentic as possible so that you would be compelled to open the attached file.
