XD Locker Ransomware

Posted: February 2, 2021

XD Locker Ransomware is a threat that may reach your computer via a corrupted email attachment, a fake download, or a piece of pirated software laced with malware. Protecting yourself from threats like this one requires using a reputable anti-virus software suite, as well as following the best safe Web browsing practices. Users who fail to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves from the XD Locker Ransomware attacks may end up losing the majority of their files. The XD Locker Ransomware will encrypt their contents and then modify their names by using random numbers and the extension '.XL.' Finally, the XD Locker Ransomware drops forty identical ransom messages named 'Oops1.txt,' 'Oops2.txt,' 'Oops3.txt,' etc.

The ransom note tells the users that they have lost access to their documents, archives, media and other files. It offers a paid solution, which involves sending 0.9 Bitcoin to a wallet controlled by the attackers. However, the message does not include any contact details or website links – paying the fee is unlikely to help you get your files back.

If the XD Locker Ransomware has damaged your data, you should use a reputable anti-malware tool to eliminate the threatening application and then look into reputable data recovery tools and other options.
