Ransom32 Ransomware Description
A Ransom Riding on the Back of a Development Kit
The Ransom32 Ransomware uses these capabilities to scan for files on your hard drive of appropriate types, such as MP4 audio files, Office documents, spreadsheets and JPG images. The data targeted by the Ransom32 Ransomware goes through a 128-bit AES encryption process that security experts at Emsisoft have, so far, deemed unbreakable. The files are unusable without a corresponding decryption routine, which is a service the Ransom32 Ransomware offers at a premium through a pop-up message.
The Ransom32 Ransomware also uses a straightforward control interface for its administrators, including supporting attack options, such as the ability to 'fully lock' the computer, display other forms of pop-ups or modify its ransom fee.
Keeping Your PC out of the Targeting Framework of New Ransomware
Both because of its relative newness to the threat industry and its unique coding language, the Ransom32 Ransomware has only a minority of detections with most anti-malware vendors, many of which are generic. However, the Ransom32 Ransomware does use an unusually large (over twenty megabyte) file size, which could make it slightly more visible during delivery. PC users who want to protect their data from the Ransom32 Ransomware should, instead of paying its ransom, use a remote file backup storage that can block the Ransom32 Ransomware from compromising any essential files. Updated anti-malware products still should be used for detecting and removing the Ransom32 Ransomware from your system.
Of course, refraining from opening suspicious e-mail attachments also offers a surefire way of avoiding the Ransom32 Ransomware's current campaign.
