Napoleon Ransomware

Napoleon Ransomware

Are you aware that spam emails can be used to spread malware? Napoleon Ransomware is one of the many infections that could slither into your operating system using this security backdoor. The bad thing is that this malware can enter your operating system in a clandestine manner, and you are unlikely to notice it at all. If you do not notice it, it can start acting in a malicious way without your intervention either. The main task for this dangerous threat is to encrypt your files, and it does that successfully using a complex algorithm. Although the infection does not encrypt system files, it can encrypt photos, media files, documents, and other kinds of personal data. The algorithm used by the ransomware cannot be cracked manually, and if your files are encrypted, they are likely to stay that way for good. That means that if your files are corrupted, they are corrupted, and there is nothing you can do to reverse that. That being said, you must delete Napoleon Ransomware, and that, luckily, is very easy to achieve. Read more »

Ransommine Ransomware

Ransommine Ransomware

Ransommine Ransomware is probably one of the strangest ransomware infections as this new threat does not try to swindle you and demand a ransom fee in exchange for the decryption tool or key. Our malware experts say that this dangerous program appears to come from "playful" cyber gangsters who instruct you to play a certain game for an hour to get your files decrypted. What's more, if you have this game installed, it may well save your files from encryption altogether. No matter how funny or playful this may sound, we are still talking about a dangerous threat since your files may actually remain encrypted and thus inaccessible for you. Hopefully, you have a backup in cloud or on a portable device so that you can use your clean files to restore them in case your gaming would not eventually result in the decryption of your files. We suggest that you do not hesitate to remove Ransommine Ransomware from your computer after noticing it. Read more »
