Ramsey Ransomware

What is Ramsey Ransomware?

A new ransomware infection Ramsey Ransomware has been recently spotted by malware researchers. Since the primary language of this malicious application is Turkish, specialists at anti-spyware-101.com are sure that this threat is spread in Turkey the most actively. Unfortunately, it does not mean that it cannot show up on users’ who live on the other side of the world too. It is because it is spread using deceptive methods and is known to be a sneaky threat. You will find out soon about its presence if it ever enters your computer because it is a typical ransomware infection, i.e. it finds valuable users’ files and then locks them all. You will not be allowed to open a bunch of files, and, on top of that, you will see a window opened on your Desktop. Close it and go to remove Ramsey Ransomware from your computer. It might threaten you to delete your files permanently if you do not send the money required, but you should not make a payment to cyber criminals by any means because the developer of this infection might not have a decryption key either. That is, you might not get your files back even if you pay a ransom required by the ransomware infection. The final word is, of course, yours, but we hope that you will arrive at a sensible decision.test

Where does Ramsey Ransomware come from?

Ransomware infections are such threats which manage to enter users’ computers without permission. Of course, they do not try to stay unnoticed on users’ systems, so it does not take long to realize that the ransomware infection is the one responsible for locking files. Ramsey Ransomware is not a threat we could call popular, so it is not easy to make conclusions about its distribution. According to researchers at anti-spyware-101.com, this threat is distributed using usual ransomware distribution methods. First, it might be spread via spam email campaigns. In such a case, a ransomware infection is distributed as a spam email attachment and successfully infiltrates computers if users open/download it. What is more, users might find Ramsey Ransomware promoted on a P2P website as well. Of course, they will not be told that they will install malicious software on their computers if they click on the Download button to get the promoted application. They find out that they have downloaded malware masqueraded as useful software only when they discover a bunch of their files encrypted. Be more careful in the future!

All ransomware infections seek to obtain money from users. Since Ramsey Ransomware is one of them, it will start encrypting your files the moment it successfully slithers onto the computer. Your pictures, documents, and other personal files will all be locked and receive the new filename extension .ram. Users are asked to send “$25 worth of Bitcoin” within 1 hour to get those files unlocked. It is not a good idea to send cyber criminals money because they might take your money and leave you without the decryption key. On top of that, if cyber criminals get money, they will never stop developing new harmful malicious applications. It does not mean that it is impossible to get files back if you do not pay a ransom. There are several alternative data recovery methods which might work for you, so try them all out. First, you can go to recover your files from a backup (it must be located on an external hard drive or another external storage device). Second, free recovery tools might be able to decrypt your files as well if Shadow Copies of files have not been deleted by Ramsey Ransomware, so try them all. If none of these alternative data recovery methods work, you can pay a ransom if you want to but do not say that we did not warn you if you do not get any of your files unlocked.
