Schwerer Ransomware is an Autoit script-based malicious application malware that analysts have detected recently. It is considered an extremely harmful computer infection because it causes a bunch of problems after its successful entrance. The main activity it performs on those affected computers is the encryption of files. It is nothing new – a number of ransomware-type threats act the same. These threats encrypt users’ files and then demand money from them. Specifically speaking, cyber criminals use those infections as tools that help them to obtain money from users easily. Schwerer Ransomware will demand money from you too after the encryption of your personal data. It allows its victims to understand that they have only two choices: 1) lose their files forever or 2) purchase the key and unlock files with it. Users whose valuable files have been encrypted by Schwerer Ransomware usually decide to pay a ransom, but they do not know that it is not such a good idea to do that because they might get nothing in exchange for the money paid. Since we have no proof that the decryption key will be sent to you once you make a payment, we suggest that you delete Schwerer Ransomware fully and do not purchase the key from the developer of this ransomware infection.
