The Perfection Ransomware is a new piece of malware that is being used to extort users for money by encrypting their data and then promising to provide them with a decryptor if they agree to pay a ransom fee. Just like other ransomware creators, the ones behind this project also demand a ransom payment via Bitcoin. They also follow the latest trend among ransomware developers – they threaten to leak the user's data online if they do not agree to pay. Recently, there has been an influx of file-lockers that also collect some sensitive data from the infected system prior to encrypting it – this is usually done because they hope to convince their victims to pay the ransom fee.
The Perfection Ransomware may be delivered to your computer via a fake email attachment, pirated download, or other suspicious online content. The best way to prevent its attack is to use a reputable anti-malware software suite. It is also advisable to invest in reputable data backup solutions that can maintain up-to-date, reserve copies of your files.
If Perfection Ransomware's attack is successful, it will encrypt a large portion of your files, and add the '.perfection' extension to their names. The ransom note is dropped after the threat is done with the file-encryption attack, and it is stored under the name 'Recovery_Instructions.html.'
The criminals use the email firstname.lastname@example.org, but they also list a TOR-based site that can be used to contact them. It is recommended to refrain from contacting the criminals because they will ask to receive a Bitcoin transaction before offering any help. Even if you pay up, they may take the money and opt to scam you. Our advice is to run an anti-malware tool to help you dispose of the Perfection Ransomware and then experiment with data recovery tools.
