JeanRenoAParis is a virus that encrypts your files and extorts you to pay a ransom to supposedly recover them. The extortionists want you to pay in Bitcoin for the alleged restoration of your files. Some malware researchers refer to the virus as “StorageCrypter” although we at STF have dubbed it as JeanRenoAParis from the email address it uses as a contact.

JeanRenoAParis ransomware might make entries in the Windows Registry to achieve persistence, and could launch or repress processes in a Windows environment. Such entries are typically designed in a way to launch the virus automatically with each start of the Windows Operating System.

The note of the JeanRenoAParis ransomware states that your files are encrypted. You are demanded to pay 0.4 Bitcoin which equals to nearly 4,000 US dollars. 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.

JeanRenoAParis Ransomware – Encryption

What is known for the encryption process of the JeanRenoAParis ransomware is that the cryptovirus places the .Locked extension to all locked files. What is more, the encryption algorithms used by the virus are both RSA and AES, but some researchers argue about that.

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 JeanRenoAParis 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. If your computer device was infected with this ransomware and your files are locked, read on through to find out how you could potentially restore your files back to normal.
