MNSCRYPTOLOCKER Virus – Details
MNSCRYPTOLOCKER virus acts like a typical ransomware – once it’s activated, it will scan your system in search of your most used files to encrypt them. Once encrypted, you will receive a message stating the following:
YOUR UNIQ ID:
ALL YOUR FILE LOCKED WITH MNS CRYPTOLOCKER:
SEND 0.2 BTC TO ADRESS 19O4mEEgQhMDSWFfsKcDgm8RjT16cCa33XqFOR DECRYPT YOUR FILES SEND YOUR UNIQ AND BTC WALLET FROM WICH PAID
TO EMAIL [email protected]
AFTER WE RECEIVE BITCOINS AND YOR EMAIL, WE CONTACT WITH YOU
The cyber criminals are clearly asking for a ransom payment of 0,2 bitcoins stating that they will contact you back once they receive the money. Paying the ransom, however, does not guarantee that you will receive a decryption key. In fact, paying the ransom only fosters cyber crime and is never a solution. If the cyber criminals receive the required money from you, they may take your files hostage again.
MNSCRYPTOLOCKER Virus – Distribution
MNSCRYPTOLOCKER ransomware virus is distributed mainly via exploit kits, Trojans, malicious ads, spam email campaigns, containing compromised attachments and URLs. Just keep in mind that cyber criminals are very creative when it comes to targeting your system – they can disguise an email containing the infection in a way that you will never recognize it’s malicious unless you pay closer attention to the details.
MNSCRYPTOLOCKER Virus – Removal Guide
Removing MNSCRYPTOLOCKER virus is possible to do manually and via a trusted and powerful anti-malware tool. The problem with either way is that your files will remain encrypted unless malware researchers release a decryption key or you manage to recover some of them with a data recovery tool. Still, however, removing the virus and then attempting to recover your data remains the best option there is for any type of a ransomware infection.
