What is Ramsomeer Ransomware?
If your screen turns black while all your windows close and an application window appears labeled “Main,” it is possible that Ramsomeer Ransomware has managed to sneak onto your system. This new malicious program can lock your screen and block your executable files, which can be quite convincing and you may believe that your files have really been encrypted and your computer locked as this ransom note window claims. However, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have analyzed this threat and concluded that this could be an unfinished version that has started to spread on the web recently. Since there is way higher potential in this ransomware program, we believe that a new version may soon emerge. It is possible that this infection may trick a few unsuspecting and inexperienced users and they are willing to pay the ransom fee. Nevertheless, we are here to tell you that you need to remove Ramsomeer Ransomware immediately, if you plan to use your computer.
Where does Ramsomeer Ransomware come from?
Most ransomware infections, including EdgeLocker Ransomware and CryptoLockerEU Ransomware, are distributed on the net as malicious executable files in disguise attached to spam e-mails. This can be labeled as the most widely used method for cyber criminals to spread ransomware programs. We have not found instances where this particular threat was spread this way, but we still find it important to mention this because who knows how the possible future version will be traveling. You need to be careful when you select the e-mails to open because you can never be 100% sure that your spam filter does its job perfectly; crooks seem to be always at least one step ahead.
Such a spam may avoid detection and even deceive you. It may refer to an unsettled invoice of some sort, a problematic hotel booking, an issue with your bank account or credit card, and so on. This is why most computer users fall for such a trick and open this spam. However, once you see the content, you may feel inclined to view the attachment. Clicking to see this file initiates the malicious attack. Therefore, if you remove the ransomware, it will not save your files from encryption and will not recover them either. This is why you need to prevent such dangerous threats from entering your computer in the first place.
Nevertheless, Ramsomeer Ransomware has not been found spreading this way and encrypting your files either. It is more likely that you download this malicious executable as a disguised game crack, such as "Hacker para GTA V.exe." This can happen when you land on malicious file-sharing sites, such as torrent and freeware pages. But you might also be offered this file for download from a third-party pop-up or banner ad generated by adware programs hiding on your computer. In any case, we recommend that you always use official and reputable websites for downloading any software and updates. Trying to download hacked or cracked versions and key generators is a shady business most of the time, let alone illegal, too. Cyber criminals cannot wait for more victims to show up on their fake websites who are searching the web for free or cracked files to download. Since you can easily infect your system with a whole bundle of malware threats upon such an unfortunate visit, we suggest that you find a reliable online malware scanner and inspect your system for possibly harmful programs after you delete Ramsomeer Ransomware.
How does Ramsomeer Ransomware work?
Most ransomware programs use AES-256 and one of the RSA encryption algorithms to encrypt your files. This malware infection claims to target your personal files, including your images, videos, documents, and archives. Although its program code is prepared to encrypt your files, somehow the samples our malware specialists have found on the web spreading do not actually do any encryption. This is why we assume that there may come a new version. This ransomware simply clears your desktop of all open windows and on black background it shows you its ransom note window that looks like an application installation wizard.
This note informs you that your files have supposedly been encrypted and that you have to pay 0.3169 Bitcoins, which is about 285 dollars at current rate. Both this amount and the Bitcoin address seem to be hard-coded in the program; therefore, these are set values for every user under attack by this ransomware. Although seemingly your screen is locked and you cannot do anything to kill this malicious application, we have discovered that by tapping the "Alt+F4" combination simultaneously you can close this ransom note window and then, you can delete Ramsomeer Ransomware. Since this version does not actually encrypt your files, we advise you to act right away and forget about paying the ransom fee. We would not recommend that anyway because you would simply support cyber criminals and you may not see and decryption key or tool in return.
How do I delete Ramsomeer Ransomware?
As we have already mentioned, you can use the “Alt+F4” trick to close this window, which will unlock your screen and your computer as well. Another solution is to reboot your machine, which has the same effect. Only after this can you finally remove Ramsomeer Ransomware from your system and free up your computer. We have included our guide below this article if you want to try to manually eliminate this threat.
