This infection has been designed to extract money from users, so it will surely lock all your valuable files on your PC if it finds a way to affect it. Ransomware infections usually lock victims’ documents and almost all media files. In some cases, they notice that they can no longer access certain programs too because .exe files get encrypted as well. It is hard to say whether Scarab-Oblivion Ransomware will lock all your personal files or not, but we are sure that the majority of them will be no longer accessible. We know there are files you need to access badly among them, but we cannot let you send money to malicious software developers. There are two simple reasons for this. First, you do not know whether cyber criminals will really unlock your files or at least will give you the tool to do this yourself.

We leave the final decision in your hands, but there is one thing you must do no matter what – delete Scarab-Oblivion Ransomware from your system fully as soon as possible.
