Why are your files encrypted
Hand of God ransomware will encrypt your files the moment it enters your machine as it is file-encoding malware. Ransomware is a very risky threat as it will encrypt your files and request money in exchange for a decryption method. The sad reality is that generally, users end up not recovering files. You most likely opened a malicious email attachment or fell for a bogus download recently and that is how you got infected. These kinds of things are what analysts have been warning users about for years. Victims are requested to pay a ransom when they get infected and that is the last thing they should do for various reasons. It would actually be surprising if you got your files unlocked after payment, since cyber crooks don’t feel compelled to aid you. We recommend you to delete Hand of God ransomware, instead of giving into the demands.
