Bonsoir Ransomware

Posted: January 14, 2021

The Bonsoir Ransomware is a newly detected file-locker, which appears to be spread online via fake email attachments, pirated media/software and other shady downloads. This threat aims to gain the ability to encrypt the files on your computer and then start to extort you for money. The extortionists behind the threatening software say that they are ready to provide a decryption tool as long as the victim pays a ransom fee first.

The Bonsoir Ransomware's attack is identifiable by the '.bonsoir' extension that will be added to locked files' names. Unfortunately, this threat may inflict significant damage to your file system because of its ability to encrypt videos, documents, archives, databases and many other types of files. Victims of the Bonsoir Ransomware will always find the ransom message 'HOW-RECOVER-MY-FILES.txt' on their computers. This document tells them to download and install the TOR browser, which will then be used to visit a TOR-based payment page. The ransom note does not include other contact details and simply tells the victim to follow the instructions if they wish to purchase the 'Bonsoir Decryptor.'

You should never agree to meet ransomware creators' demands because it is highly unlikely that they will help you after you send them the money. Instead of trusting Bonsoir Ransomware's operators, you should sue a malware removal tool to terminate the threatening file-locker. Once you do this, you will need to start restoring your files from a backup or try to run an alternative data recovery software.
