Resgateseup Ransomware

Posted: January 29, 2021

Resgateseup Ransomware is a file-encryption Trojan whose authors appear to be Brazilian, judging by the language used in their ransom note. However, it is not certain that Resgateseup Ransomware's eventual attacks will be limited just to Brazil – it is entirely possible that the threat may reach other parts of the world too. When the Resgateseup Ransomware infects a computer, it encrypts a large portion of the files it can access before dropping a ransom; not that extorts the victim for money. Threats of this type often mark files with a new extension to make them easy to see, but the Resgateseup Ransomware leaves the original filenames intact.

However, what it does not leave intact, is the content of many files. It renders them inaccessible by encrypting them, and, unfortunately, only the ransomware's creators hold the key needed to unlock them. Their demands are delivered via the ransom message 'config.ini .' They appear to demand a ransom payment of 0.01 Bitcoin. They provide the email resgateseupc@protonmail.com for contact and redirect the victim to a Brazilian cryptocurrency broker.

Sadly, Resgateseup Ransomware's encryption might be impossible to crack. However, this does not mean you should consider their offer. Even if you fulfill their demands, they may try to take our money. Instead of trusting them, you should use an anti-malware tool to prevent the Resgateseup Ransomware from damaging more of your files. After the threat is gone for good, you will need to try and restore your files either through a backup or by exploring other data recovery options.
