RansomeToad Ransomware

Posted: December 30, 2020

The RansomeToad Ransomware is not a threat that you should underestimate. The RansomeToad Ransomware is a file-locker whose ransom message resembles the one used by the WannaCry Ransomware. Fortunately, these file-lockers do not share the same file-encryption routine, and the RansomeToad Ransomware is not as threatening as 2019's most infamous file-locker. However, it packs a secure file-encryption routine aiming to leave your files in an encrypted state. Files that the RansomeToad Ransomware damages are marked with the '.rtcrypted' extension.

After the RansomeToad Ransomware finishes encrypting files, it will display a new window that lists all locked files. The message also tells victims to visit a Russian website where they can purchase a decryption tool in exchange for some money – this is an unorthodox approach since most ransomware authors tend to rely on cryptocurrency transactions. We assure you that trying to purchase anything off of RansomeToad Ransomware's creators is a bad idea – even if you pay the ransom sum, they may not grant you access to the decryption software.

The RansomeToad Ransomware has failed to provide any contact details, so it is impossible to ask them for proof that their decryption tools work, nor can you message them in case they do not deliver the software you are paying for. We advise victims of the RansomeToad Ransomware to run an anti-virus scanner to ensure the full removal of the threat's components and then try out popular data recovery software and solutions.
