C4H Ransomware Description
The C4H Ransomware is a file-locker that is being spread online via various methods such as pirated software, fake downloads and bogus email attachments. Users who end up running the C4H Ransomware on an unprotected computer may soon realize that they are in a lot of trouble – this will happen because the C4H Ransomware will focus on encrypting the majority of their files, therefore rendering their contents inaccessible. Of course, the authors of the C4H Ransomware will want to receive a ransom payment in exchange for their assistance – their ransom note does not specify the amount, but you can rest assured that such services do not come cheap. IF you are considering paying the C4H Ransomware's authors, we assure you that this is a bad choice – there is no way you can be sure that they will not opt to trick you out of your money.
All files that are taken hostage during the attack will be marked with the '.C4H' extension. The last part of the attack is the creation of the file 'Decryption INFO.html' that contains the message of the attackers. The ransom note states that victims can use the emails email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch with the attackers and they need to be prepared to pay a ransom fee. Last but not least, the attackers offer to prove that their decryption service works by decrypting one of the victim's files for free.
