Is this a serious infection

Clinix Ransomware may lead to severe harm as it’ll leave your data encrypted. Ransomware in general is considered to be a highly dangerous threat due to the consequences it’ll bring. Specific files will be locked immediately after the ransomware is launched. Photos, videos and documents are the commonly targeted files due to how valuable to users they are. You will not be able to open files so easily, you’ll have to decrypt them using a decryption key, which is in the possession of the hackers behind this ransomware. The good news is that ransomware may be cracked by malicious software specialists, and a free decryptor might be developed. If you don’t recall ever backing up your files and don’t intend to give into the criminals’ demands, that free decryptor might be your best choice. Clinix_Ransomware3.png

You will see a ransom note put on your machine after the encryption process is complete. You’ll see a short explanation about what happened to your files in the note, in addition to being offered to buy a decryption tool. We can’t exactly recommend you to pay for a decryptor. In many cases, crooks take the money but don’t send a decryptor. More malicious software would be developed using the money you give criminals. Seeing as you’re thinking about paying criminals, perhaps purchasing backup would be better. In case you have made copies of your files, there is no need to hesitate and you may simply delete Clinix Ransomware.

If you recall opening a strange email attachment or downloading some kind of update, that’s how you could’ve infected your device. The reason we say you probably got it through those methods is because they are the most popular among crooks.

How does ransomware spread

You might get infected in a couple of different ways, but as we have said previously, you probably got the infection via bogus updates and spam emails. If you recall opening an attachment that came with a spam email, you have to be more careful. When you encounter unfamiliar senders, you need to cautiously check the email before opening the file attached. You should also know that criminals tend to pretend to be from legitimate companies in order to make users lower their guard. The sender may claim to be Amazon, for example, and that the reason they’re emailing you is because weird behavior was noticed on the account or that an unusual purchase was made. Whoever the sender claims to be, you should be able to easily check the legitimacy of that statement. Just locate a list of email addresses used by the company and see if your sender’s email address is in the list. Furthermore, use a malware scanner to check the file before opening it.

If you are certain spam email is not responsible, false programs updates could also be responsible. Bogus alerts for updates appear on various web pages all the time, continually forcing you into installing updates. You could also see them in ad or banner form and looking rather real. Though people who are familiar with how updates work will never fall for it as they appear very fake. If you continue to download from unreliable sources, do not be surprised if you end up with a contaminated computer again. The program itself will notify you when an update is necessary, or updates may be automatic.

What does ransomware do

If you’re wondering what happened to your files, they were locked. As soon as the infected file was opened, the encryption process, which you might have missed, began. A specific file extension will show files that have been locked. Because of the strong encryption algorithm used, affected files will not be openable so easily. A ransom note will then appear and it will explain how you may restore your files. Ransom notes usually look pretty similar to one another, contain threats about files being deleted forever and explain how to recover them by paying the ransom. Despite the fact that hackers hold they key for recovering your files, giving into the demands is not suggested. Realistically, how likely is it that the people who locked your files in the first place, will feel any obligation to assist you, even after a payment is made. If you pay one time, you may be willing to pay a second time, or that is what criminals possibly think.

You might’ve stored some of your files somewhere, so try to recall before you even consider paying. Alternatively you could backup your encrypted files and wait for a malware researcher to develop a free decryption utility, which does happen sometimes. Whatever it is you want to do, uninstall Clinix Ransomware as quickly as possible.

Whether you recover your files or not, you need to start doing regular backups from now on. You could be put into a similar situation again and risk losing your files if you don’t take the time to do backups. In order to keep your files safe, you’ll need to acquire backup, and there are quite a few options available, some more expensive than others.

How to remove Clinix Ransomware

Trying to erase ransomware manually may end in disaster so we don’t suggest attempting it. Download and have anti-malware program to take care of the threat because otherwise, you might cause more harm. You may need to boot your system in Safe Mode so as to run the malicious software removal program successfully. Once your device is in in Safe Mode, launch the malicious software removal program, scan your device and remove Clinix Ransomware. Removing the malware won’t help with file recovery, however.
