About Ravack ransomware

Ravack ransomware will effect your device very severely as it will lock your data. Because of how easy it is to catch an infection, ransomware is classified as one of the most damaging malware you can get. Once you open the ransomware-infected file, it’ll look for and lock certain files. The most frequently encrypted files are photos, videos and documents because of how critical they’re likely to be to you. You’ll need a decryption key to unlock the files but sadly, it’s in the possession of criminals to blame for the contamination. Do not lose hope, however, as researchers specializing in malware might release a free decryption program at some point in time. If you have not made backup, waiting for the said free decryptor is probably your only option. Ravack_ransomware-3.jpg

When file encryption has been finished, if you look on your desktop or in folders that have files that have been encrypted, you should find a ransom note. Seeing as ransomware developers intend to make as much money as possible, you’ll be asked to pay for a decryption tool if you want to recover your files. While we can’t say what you should do as we are talking about your files but paying for a decryption tool is not something we recommend. We wouldn’t be surprised if the criminals don’t actually help you but just take your money. That money will also go towards creating more malware. We would recommend you buy backup with some of that money. Just remove Ravack ransomware if you had taken the time to create backup.

It is pretty possible that you opened a dangerous email or fell for a fake update. Spam emails and fake updates are one of the most widely used methods, which is why we are certain you acquired the malicious software via them.

How does ransomware spread

We think that you installed a bogus update or opened a spam email attachment, and that is how the ransomware got in. We suggest you familiarize yourself with how to spot harmful spam emails, if you believe you contaminated your computer by opening a spam email attachment. Don’t blindly open all attachments that end up in your inbox, and first ensure it’s safe. Malicious program spreaders frequently pretend to be from known companies so that users lower their guard and open emails without thinking twice about it. Amazon could be shown as the sender, for example, and that the reason they’re emailing you is because your account displayed weird behavior or that a purchase was made. If the sender is who they say they are, checking that shouldn’t be difficult. You simply need to see if the email address matches any that belong to the company. If you have any doubts, you also need to scan the attached file with a reliable malware scanner, just to be certain.

If you recently installed a software update through suspicious sources, that could have also been how the ransomware got in. Dubious websites are where we believe you encountered the false update alerts. They also come up in advertisement form and could seem completely valid. However, for those who knows that legitimate updates are never pushed this way, it will immediately be clear as to what’s going on. Since downloading anything from such bogus notifications is just asking for trouble, be cautious to stick to legitimate download sources. If you’ve set automatic updates, you won’t even be notified about it, but if manual update is required, you will be notified through the software itself.

How does this malware behave

It should be clear already, but certain files kept on your device have been encrypted. As soon as the malware file was opened, the ransomware started its file encryption process, which you might have missed. All files that have been affected will now have a weird extension. Because a complex encryption algorithm was used, you will not be able to open the encrypted files so easily. A ransom note will then appear and it’ll say how you could recover your files. Ransom notes usually follow a certain pattern, threaten with forever lost files and tell you how to recover them by paying the ransom. Despite the fact that criminals might have the decryption tool, you will not see many people recommending paying the ransom. It is not likely that the people to blame for your file encryption will feel obligation to help you after you make the payment. We also wouldn’t be shocked if you hackers targeted you specifically because they know you’ve paid once.

Instead of paying, try to recall whether you’ve stored files somewhere but just cannot remember. If there are no other options, back up the locked files for safekeeping, it is possible a malware researcher will release a free decryptor and you might be able to recover files. It’s essential to erase Ravack ransomware whichever option you pick.

We expect this experience will become a lesson, and you will begin frequently backing up your files. You could end up in a similar situation again which may result in file loss. Backup prices differ depending in which form of backup you opt for, but the investment is definitely worth it if you have files you want to safekeep.
