PanAudio Private Ltd takes great pride in representing the Russian antivirus company, Doctor Web, in Sri Lanka. Doctor Web is a unique product used by the Russian defence forces that is dedicated to providing security against the threat landscape of malware on the World Wide Web.
Dr. Web’s analysts and researchers together with the developers have introduced the most cutting-edge technologies of Dr. Web—one of the first and most established antiviruses in the world—will protest users against the latest threats.
Everyone uses the Internet; however, far from everyone knows about the threats web-surfing holds. Meanwhile, some realize that threats exist on the Internet but don’t know how to avoid them. In this article, we will tell you about encryption ransomware and how to neutralize it.
Encryption ransomware has been the No. 1 threat on the Internet for a long time. Once these malicious programmes are in a system, they start to encrypt user files and demand a ransom to decrypt them. Thus, users can end up losing important documents and invaluable photos and videos.
The first Trojan encoder ransomware software appeared in 2006-2007 and every year since then, they have become increasingly diverse. Your system can get infected with an encoder when you carelessly open an attachment in a message from an unknown sender or follow a dubious link on the Internet.
Even if you pay cybercriminals a ransom, there’s no guarantee your files will really be decrypted and a ransom can be rather large. (Fraudsters demand up to 1,500 bit coins for file decryption - one bit coin is equal to 272 euros or 330 dollars.) A ransom demand can reach US $ 49,500. Russian antivirus company Doctor Web is particularly focused on protecting users against encryption ransomware.
Starting with Dr. Web Security Space version 9, the company’s antivirus solution has incorporated ‘Preventive protection’ and ‘Data loss prevention’ features. These components help prevent valuable computer information from becoming extensively damaged. But what do you do if your system is not protected by Dr. Web? The Doctor Web technical support service receives a huge number of requests for decryption. The decryption service is free for owners of Dr. Web licences but the majority of those affected use other antiviruses (or no antivirus at all).
Trojan Encoder programmes employ dozens of different encryption algorithms. However, in many cases decryption is possible. Moreover, user feedback on forums indicates that files compromised by some versions of these Trojans can be decrypted only by Doctor Web’s security experts. From just November 2015 to June 2016, our specialists saved the files of more than 3,500 users!
The Dr. Web Rescue Pack is intended for users whose systems have been compromised by Trojan encoder encryption ransomware. The package includes a licence for the comprehensives security solution Dr. Web Security Space and covers services for the decryption of compromised data. If malware manages to encrypt data in a system (including one not under Dr. Web’s protection) at the moment of infection, the affected user can purchase the Dr. Web Rescue Pack and get the decryption utility; if Doctor Web’s engineers can decrypt the data. The rescue pack comes with special decryption at an affordable price.
