What is TeslaCrypt Ransomware?
TeslaCrypt Ransomware is a malicious infection that could enter your operating system without any warning. The threat relies on clandestine tricks to enter your computer, and there is no doubt that your permission will not be requested upon the infiltration. TeslaCrypt Ransomware could be dropped on your PC bundled with other threats, which means that you might have to worry about the removal even after you delete TeslaCrypt Ransomware. Needless to say, it is important to delete all infections installed on your operating system, but, at this point, it is most crucial to remove the ransomware. This threat is extremely paralyzing, and it can make it very difficult to operate your own operating system.
How does TeslaCrypt Ransomware work?
Our Anti-Spyware-101.com malware researchers have analyzed and tested TeslaCrypt Ransomware to give you the most valuable information that will help you deal with this threat. It was discovered that the infection comes from the same group of malware as Coin Locker, ZeroLocker, and CTB-Locker. All of these threats have the ability to encrypt personal files and demand a ransom from you. Once TeslaCrypt Ransomware enters your operating system, it temporarily kills cmd.exe, msconfig, regedit, procexp, and taskmgr processes, but they are restored shortly after, which is why we are sure that computer users will not have trouble removing TeslaCrypt Ransomware. What computer users might have trouble with is deciding whether to remove TeslaCrypt Ransomware after restoring personal files or to delete it without trying to restore them. According to the notification presented by the ransomware, a user has to download the Tor Browser, open the provided link, copy and paste the provided Bitcoin address, and follow the remaining instructions. Needless to say, at the end you will be asked to pay a certain sum of money to have your personal files restored.
Your documents, photos, databases and other important files have been encrypted with strongest encryption and unique key, generated for this computer.
Private decryption key is stored on a secret Internet server and nobody can decrypt your files until you pay and obtain the private key.
It appears that TeslaCrypt Ransomware, also known as CryptoLocker-v3, mainly affects game files. Even though it can remove access to photos and personal documents, there are plenty of other files that it could affect, including .d3dbsp, .sc2save, .ibank. .pkpass, .sidn, and .sidd. Unfortunately, Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers cannot guarantee that access to these files will be restored even if you pay the ransom demanded, which is why we do not recommend paying it.
