The note of the BugWare ransomware states that your files are encrypted. You are demanded to pay in Monero. However, you should NOT under any circumstances pay any ransom. Your files may not get recovered, and nobody could give you a guarantee for that. Moreover, giving money to cybercriminals will most likely motivate them to create more ransomware viruses or commit different criminal acts.

BugWare Ransomware – Encryption

What is known for the encryption process of the BugWare ransomware is that the cryptovirus places the .[[email protected]].BUGWARE extension to all locked files. What is more, the encryption algorithm used by the virus is AES, but some researchers oppose that idea.

The targeted extensions of files which are sought to get encrypted are currently unknown and if a list is discovered, it will be posted here as the article gets updated. The files used most by users and which are probably encrypted are from the following categories:

  • Audio files
  • Video files
  • Document files
  • Image files
  • Backup files
  • Banking credentials, etc

The BugWare cryptovirus could be set to erase all the Shadow Volume Copies from the Windows operating system with the help of the following command:

→vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet

In case the above-stated command is executed that will make the encryption process more efficient. That is due to the fact that the command eliminates one of the prominent ways to restore your data.
