No, technically, Wisperado@india.com Ransomware does not steal money from users. They are forced to make a payment to cyber crooks if they wish to get their files unlocked.

Where does Wisperado@india.com Ransomware come from?
Users should be aware of methods used to distribute ransomware, so we have decided to start by explaining readers why they have ended up with Wisperado@india.com Ransomware and discovered their files encrypted. Research carried out by specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com has shown that file-encrypting threats are often distributed inside spam emails. Even though attachments which come inside these spam emails usually look harmless, they are directly associated with malware.

Even though ransomware infections are commonly spread through spam emails, specialists cannot guarantee that it is the only way they are distributed. According to them, other methods might be employed to infiltrate more users’ computers too. Because of this, the installation of a security application is a must for everyone. Staying away from spam emails is recommended as well.
How does Wisperado@india.com Ransomware act?
Wisperado@india.com Ransomware starts working right after entering the computer. It locates valuable files on the affected computer and locks them all by appending a new filename extension .viper1 to each of these files. Original extensions of files stay too, so users see files in such a format: picture.jpg.viper1. Once the personal data is locked, it drops a file Read Me Please.hta which is then opened for users. This file is a ransom note which explains users what has happened to their files and what they can do about that. Users are told not to try to decrypt files using third-party software or go to remove Wisperado@india.com Ransomware. Instead, they are instructed to write an email to Wisperado@india.com in order to get explained about the decryption procedure. Even though users do not find any information about the ransom in the ransom note opened, it does not mean that they will not receive an answer with an indicated amount of money after writing an email to cyber criminals behind Wisperado@india.com Ransomware. As has already been told in this article, it is a really bad idea to pay money because nobody can give you a guarantee that you could unlock your data after doing that. Unfortunately, users usually cannot unlock their files no matter they transfer money or not. Security specialists have only two pieces of advice for the future: a) users should back up their files periodically and b) keep those backed up files on an offline storage device, e.g. USB flash drive. If you have already become a victim of Wisperado@india.com Ransomware and do not plan to send money to crooks, your only chance to get files back is to restore data from a backup now.
