About CryptoKill

CryptoKill is a file-encrypting ransomware type of virus that could do serious harm to your computer. If your computer is infected, you must have recently opened a malicious email attachment. Opening the wrong email is all it takes to infect your computer. When ransomware enters the system, it encrypts files and then demands that the victims pay a ransom to restore them. After the payment is submitted, the cyber criminals promise to decrypt the files. This is highly doubtful as in many cases, the crooks just take the money and not help you restore your files. You could potentially lose your files and your money. Which is why we do not recommend paying the ransom. If you do not have backup, make copies of the encrypted files so that if malware specialists release a decryptor you can restore your files. And instead of paying, we suggest you remove CryptoKill. If you did have backup prior to infection, you can get the files from there. But you must first delete CryptoKill. Continue reading

What is X-files Ransomware?

X-files Ransomware is a file-encrypting ransomware type of virus that could potentially lead to file loss. It must have infected your computer when you opened a malicious file attachment. Or if you downloaded a program from an unreliable source. X-files Ransomware will encrypt your files and then demand that you pay a ransom in order to get those files back. We never suggest paying the ransom, as it will not necessarily lead to file decryption. Ransomware developers do not always decrypt files as they do not feel obligated to do anything. They are criminals, after all. You should ignore the demands and remove X-files Ransomware as soon as possible. We also suggest you make copies of the encrypted files so that you could decrypt them if malware researchers developed a free decryptor. If you have backup, you can restore the files from there, but only after you delete X-files Ransomware. Continue reading

BadNews ransomware is a file-encrypting ransomware. Ransomware usually infects computers via spam emails or fake downloads, and it is highly likely that BadNews ransomware uses the same methods. Ransomware is one of the most dangerous viruses you could get as it encrypts files and asks that you pay to get them back. Sometimes, malware specialists are able to develop a free decryption key or if you have backup, you can get your files back from there. But otherwise, there is little chance you will restore your files. You might think paying the ransom is a good option but we must warn you that it might not lead to file decryption. There are cases when ransomware developers just take the money and leave the files as they are, encrypted.

There is no way of knowing, and you might just end up wasting your money and supporting these cyber crooks. Instead of paying, you should obtain reliable backup. You also need to remove CloudSword.
