The ransom note states the following:
Ooops, it seems like all of your files have been encrypted with AESencryption algorithm.
Can I get my files back?
-Yes, you can. But you need this following software :
– Without the software, no one can decrypt your files
How do I pay?
-Simply buy a 100€ Paysafecard
-Send message with the Paysafecard PIN to this account :
-Wait for us to confirm your payment
-Get the decryptor
However, there is a way to get a free decryptor!
How to get the free decryptor?
-Create a link on grabify that will download your victim the ransomware

The note of the Tunca ransomware states that your files are encrypted. You are demanded to pay a ransom sum in order to get your files recovered. 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.
Tunca Ransomware Virus – Encryption Process
What is known for the encryption process of the Tunca ransomware is that every file that gets encrypted will receive the .tunca extension. The encryption algorithm used to lock the files is the AES algorithm.
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 Tunca cryptovirus could be set to erase all the Tunca 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.
