.PC-FunHACKED!-Hello File Virus (Jigsaw) – Overview

The Jigsaw ransomware ransomware virus keeps on appearing on the radar of malware researchers. When the Jigsaw virus is executed, it will modify an existing entry in the Windows Registry or create a new one to achieve persistence. That registry entry makes the malware to automatically execute with each boot of the Windows operating system. Afterward, your files will get encrypted, and receive the same extension.

What comes next is a window popping up on your screen that shows a message with the ransom instructions. The ransom note is written in the English language.

You can preview it in the following screenshot:

The window might get changed, depending on the variant of the ransomware.

Here is what the actual ransom note message states in the current .PC-FunHACKED!-Hello File Virus variant:

I want to play a game with you. Let me explain the rules:
Your personal files are being deleted. Your photos, videos, documents, etc…
But don’t worry! It will only happen if you don’t comply.
However, I’ve already encrypted your personal files, so you cannot access them.

Every hour I select some of them to delete permanently,
therefore I won’t be able to access them, either.
Are you familiar with the concept of exponential growth? Let me help you out.
It starts out slowly then increases rapidly.
During the first 24 hour you will only lose a few files,
the second day a few hundreds, the third day a few thousand, and so on.

If you turn off your computer or try to close me, when I start next time
you will get 1000 files deleted as a punishment.
Yes you will want me to start next time, since I am the only one that
is capable to decrypt your personal data for you.

Now, let’s start and enjoy our little game together!

** files will be deleted

[I made a payment, now give me back my files!]

But you should NOT under any circumstances pay the ransom sum. Supporting cybercriminals is a bad idea as that will only motivate them to do more criminal acts.
