About this malware

Velar Ransomware is categorized as ransomware that locks data. Due to its destructive nature, it is very dangerous to have ransomware on the system. Once the ransomware has invaded, it’ll locate specific files and encrypt them. Photos, videos and documents are among the most targeted files because of their value to people. A decryption key will be needed to recover files but sadly, the crooks who encrypted your files have it. Occasionally, a decryption program might be released free of charge by malicious software who may be able to crack the ransomware. If you do not have backup, waiting for that free decryptor is your best option. Velar_Ransomware_3.png

You’ll find a ransom note either on the desktop or in folders that have encrypted files. The note will clarify what happened to your files and how you may get them back. We don’t advise interacting with hackers, for a couple of reasons. We would not be surprised if the crooks do not actually help you but just take your money. Additional malicious software would be made using that money. You also have to buy some kind of backup, so that you are not put in this situation again. You can just remove Velar Ransomware if you do have backup.

It’s highly possible that you opened a dangerous email or downloaded some kind of fake update. We are so sure about this because those methods are the most commonly used.

Ransomware distribution ways

You might get infected in a variety of ways, but as we’ve mentioned above, you probably got the infection via bogus updates and spam emails. Because of how common spam campaigns are, you have to become familiar with what malicious spam look like. If you get an email from an unfamiliar sender, you need to carefully check the contents before you open the file attached. In order to make you less cautious, hackers will pretend to be from companies you’re likely to be familiar with. They might pretend to be Amazon and say that the added file is a purchase receipt. You can check whether the sender is who they say they are without difficulty. Look at the sender’s email address, and whether it sees real or not check that it really is used by the company they say to represent. We also suggest you to scan the attached file with some kind of malware scanner.

If you are certain spam email isn’t to blame, bogus programs updates may also be responsible. Notifications that promote false program updates are typically encountered when visiting websites that have a dubious reputation. Sometimes, when the bogus update offers pop up in ad or banner form, they look more real. However, because those notifications and adverts look very false, users who know how updates work will not fall for it. You ought to never use adverts as download sources, because the outcome could be very harming. Take into consideration that if a program needs to be updated, the application will either automatically update or you will be alerted via the software, not via your browser.

How does this malware behave

What happened was ransomware encrypted your files. File encrypting likely happened without you noticing, right after the contaminated file was opened. All encrypted files will be marked with an unusual extension, so you’ll know which files were affected. Because of the strong encryption algorithm used, locked files won’t be openable so easily. A ransom note will then become visible and it’ll tell what to do about restoring files. If you have encountered ransomware before, you will see that notes follow a specific pattern, crooks will intimidate you to think your sole choice is to pay and then threaten with file removal if you refuse. Even if the hackers have the only decryption utility for your files, giving into the requests isn’t a suggested option. Even after you pay, we doubt that cyber criminals will feel a sense of obligation to help you. We also wouldn’t be surprised if you were targeted again by the same cyber crooks because they know you were willing to pay once.

Before even considering paying, try to remember if you have stored some of your files anywhere. In the future, malicious software researchers may make a decryptor so keep your encrypted files stored somewhere. It is critical to uninstall Velar Ransomware whatever the case may be.

We expect this experience will become a lesson, and you’ll start frequently backing up your files. You may endanger your files again otherwise. Quite a few backup options are available, and they are quite worth the purchase if you don’t want to lose your files.
