‘Av666@weekendwarrior55′ Ransomware Description

The Av666@weekendwarrior55 is a dangerous ransomware that can cause a lot of potentially irreversible damages if it successfully infects a computer. Being infected with the 'Av666@weekendwarrior55' Ransomware may show no symptoms at first, but this is only because Av666@weekendwarrior55 is programmed to work silently in the background and encrypt files that may be valuable for the target of the attack. Once Av666@weekendwarrior55 encrypts all files marked for encryption, it may provide the victim with a ransom note that urges them to pay a ransom fee if they want their files restored. Apart from encrypting the contents of documents, photos, videos, and other file types, Av666@weekendwarrior55 also may change their file names to include a suffix that uses the following pattern 'id-UNIQUECLIENTID_av666@weekendwarrior55.' If any of your files use such file names, then, unfortunately, you are dealing with the 'Av666@weekendwarrior55' Ransomware.

Files encrypted by the 'Av666@weekendwarrior55' Ransomware cannot be accessed. If you've been affected by this threat, you should remove the ransomware with the assistance of a potent anti-malware solution. However, restoring your files may prove to be a very difficult task if you don't have them backed up to a safe location. Remember that paying the ransom fee requested by Av666@weekendwarrior55 ransomware's authors doesn't guarantee you'll have your files back. We advise you not to comply with the requests of the cyber crooks responsible for the attack because you may end up losing your money. The distribution of Av666@weekendwarrior55 may take place via spam email attachments, pirated software, and bogus downloads.
