DeathRansom Ransomware Description
DeathRansom is a ransomware threat that has joined the actions of Wacatac Ransomware, which is believed to be its predecessor. The two threats may have been created by the same group of hackers who look to extort money from victimized computer users.
The money extortion methods of DeathRansom start with its infection that may come in the form of a spam email attachment, often a "read-me.txt" text file that may appear to be harmless to most. Upon opening the malicious attachment, the affected system may then become infected with DeathRansom where the ransomware will render a ransom note making demands to pay a fee to supposedly unlock and decrypt the files that it initially encrypted.
DeathRansom doesn't have to be a "death sentence" for an infected computer. Though, utilizing the proper antimalware resources is in one’s best interest to alleviate the issues of DeathRansom. Once DeathRansom has been detected and safely removed from an infected Windows PC one can then utilize a system backup to restore the files that DeathRansom may have left encrypted.
