Solaso Ransomware

Posted: January 21, 2021

The Solaso Ransomware is malware that can cause long-term damage to your files. Removing this threat from your system is not enough to fully recover because you will still need a reliable way to restore the encrypted files during the attack. Sadly, the Solaso Ransomware is not compatible with free decryption tools, and its victims may have a difficult time recovering their data.

According to Solaso Ransomware's creators, they are willing to provide a paid decryption service, but users must agree to pay a ransom fee beforehand. Just like other ransomware creators, the ones behind this project also want to receive the money via a Bitcoin transaction. Their full instructions can be found in the file '__READ_ME_TO_RECOVER_YOUR_FILES.tx,' which the Solaso Ransomware creates when it is about to end its attack.

Surprisingly, the ransom fee that Solaso Ransomware's ask for is very low – just $50 via Bitcoin. However, we would still advise against paying it since you may not receive anything in return. The criminals offer no proof that they have a working decryptor, and it would be easy for them to trick you. The latest relevant bit of information in their ransom note is the email address that can be used to get in touch with them – sammy70p_y61m@buxod.com.

The files damaged by the Solaso Ransomware can be recognized by the '.solaso' extension added to their names. We advise you to run a reputable anti-virus tool to terminate the threatening file-locker and then use the most recommended data recovery software on the market to try and get your files back to normal.
