DeroHE Ransomware

Posted: January 19, 2021

The DeroHE Ransomware is a low-quality file-locker that is still very threatening. Its authors appear to be offering several paid decryption options, and they seem to be invested in a type of cryptocurrency called DERO. According to their ransom message, victims can pay about 200 DERO coins (worth about $100) in exchange for a decryption tool. Furthermore, the crooks claim that the price of DERO will jump to $100/coin soon, and the criminals will return $500 to the victim when this happens. Needless to say, the 'financial analysis' and promises of the cybercriminals shouldn't be trusted.

In addition to the statement above, DeroHE Ransomware's creators offer an alternative data recovery option – they want the company IObit to send them 100,000 DERO coins and promise to restore all locked computers when this happens.

The scandalous offers of DeroHE Ransomware's creators are unacceptable. Unfortunately, recovering from this file lockers attack is not easy – the threat is able to encrypt many files, and they can be recognized by the '.DeroHE' extension. Furthermore, the threat drops the ransom message 'READ_TO_DECRYPT.html' on the desktop.

Users affected by DeroHE Ransomware's attack should not accept any of the offers made by the criminals. Instead, they need to run an anti-virus tool to eliminate the threat and then experiment with popular data recovery tools.
