How to remove Ofoq ransomware

What is Ofoq ransomware?

Ofoq is a malicious program classified as ransomware. Ransomware programs exist to illegally make money, a goal they try to accomplish by taking over a victim’s computer and encrypting (locking) all their files. The program then communicates its demands to the victim, usually via a simple text file. They generally consist of sending a large amount of money to the hacker who wrote it, promising that their files will be decrypted (unlocked) if they do this. It is worth noting that often, the hackers do not honor this promise; the victims who paid the hackers but did not receive their files back are not uncommon.
Ofoq in particular belongs to the VoidCrypt ransomware family (this means that it’s similar to other programs in this family). It modifies the names of the files that it encrypts by adding .ofoq file extension, which is how it got its name. Its ransom note is called “unlock-info.txt”. You can read the full text on the image above, but the short version is, the hackers do not mention the price at all. The only information given is the hacker’s email and that the victim will have to pay in Bitcoin.
But this is not something you should do. It is possible to remove Ofoq ransomware completely on your own, for free. It is more difficult to decrypt .ofoq files, but there are free options for that too; this is still better than paying the criminals. The guide below will explain the specifics.

This is the end of the note. Below you will find a guide explaining how to remove Exploit6 ransomware.

What is Exploit6 ransomware?

Exploit6 is a malicious computer program (a virus) designed to do several different things. The first, and the most damaging act it performs on the victim’s computer, is encrypting all files it can find. This means they can no longer be opened or edited. However, this damage is not permanent; with the right key (password) they can be decrypted back to normal. This brings us to the second function of the program.
The hackers make their program encrypt random people’s files for a reason; it is a way to make money. Their virus leaves a note on the victim’s computer (called “READMI.txt” in this case). These notes typically contain the hacker’s demands (how much money they want to decrypt the files) and contact information. In this case, it does not mention how much money the criminal wants. Perhaps it is negotiated on a case-by-case basis. The note itself is very short; you can see the full text on the image above.
These two are the primary functions of the program, functions that caused it to be categorized as ransomware. However, it also has a third one. All files it encrypts are given .exploit6 file extension. This, too, is common for these programs.
The guide below will explain how to remove Exploit6 ransomware from your computer and decrypt .exploit6 files without paying anything to the hacker behind it.

This is the end of the note. Below is a guide explaining how to remove Cyber_Puffin ransomware.

What is Cyber_Puffin ransomware?

Cyber_Puffin is a ransomware program, which means it makes money by infecting computers, encrypting all files on them with cryptographic algorithms, and demanding payment for their decryption. Remarkably, this particular piece of ransomware is very similar to another recent one, Exploit6. Perhaps they’re written by the same hacker, or perhaps we’re seeing a birth of a new ransomware family.
Either way, let’s move on to more practical concerns and details. On the image above, you can see the ransom note Cyber_Puffin leaves on infected computers. It is called “Cyber_Puffin.txt”, and doesn’t contain much information; merely an instruction to send a text message to a certain Telegram user. This might mean that the hackers negotiate decryption prices individually, or perhaps they just want to get the victim engaged before mentioning the price.
The ransomware also changes the encrypted files’ names, or, more specifically, extensions. They are all given a new .Cyber_Puffin file extension, with their old one remaining intact as well. So a file named “note.txt” would be changed to “note.txt.Cyber_Puffin”.
It is best not to contact the hackers, especially since they want you to use Telegram and not e-mail; you might get your account stolen. Beyond that, the criminals often simply don’t decrypt the files even after the payment.
But it is possible to remove Cyber_Puffin ransomware for free, and even decrypt .Cyber_Puffin files. Read the guide below for instructions.

This is the end of the note. The guide below will explain how to remove 62IX ransomware.

What is 62IX ransomware?

62IX is a harmful ransomware program that encrypts all files on the computer infected with it. This means that the files can no longer be opened, edited, or even previewed. But this is a reversible procedure; which is where the hackers’ profit motivation comes in. The program doesn’t just encrypt all these files, it also offers a way to decrypt them by leaving a ransom note. The note, called “КАК РАСШИФРОВАТЬ FILES.txt”, merely points the victim at the hacker’s Telegram account (the full text of the note is available on the image above). Also of interest is the note’s name: “КАК РАСШИФРОВАТЬ” means “HOW TO DECRYPT” in Russian. Perhaps it is a clue to the program’s origin.
Either way, we also know that the virus renames the files it encrypts, adding .62IX file extension to them. This means that “photo.png” would be renamed to “photo.png.62IX”, for example. This is pretty typical; this gives the victim a clear hint that something is wrong, as all file icons change to blank ones as a result.
Paying hackers, especially ones with potentially Russian origins, is a bad idea. And contacting them over Telegram could be dangerous for your account there. Thankfully, there is a way to remove 62IX ransomware and decrypt .62IX files without paying the hacker. Read the guide below for details.

This is the end of the note. The following is a guide explaining how to remove Joker ransomware.

What is Joker ransomware?

Joker is an illegal program that makes money via data ransom (this is why it’s called ransomware). It infiltrates the victim’s computer and encrypts all files it can find using cryptographic algorithms. This renders the files inaccessible; to view and edit them again, they need to be decrypted. You can think of it as password-locking. Of course, the victim is not given the password; instead, the hackers say that the only way to decrypt the files is to pay them.
Joker specifically belongs to the VoidCrypt ransomware family. Files locked by this ransomware are given .Joker file extension, which is how the virus got its name to begin with. The virus also leaves two ransom notes, “Decryption-Guide.HTA” and “Decryption-Guide.txt”. They contain the same information, but the first one appears automatically, as a pop-up. You can read the full text on the image above, but here are the highlights.
The note does not mention any specific price; it merely asks the victim to contact the hacker to negotiate. It is also written in very poor English.
Giving into these demands is not recommended; often, the hackers simply take the money and disappear without giving the victims their files back. You can, however, remove Joker ransomware and decrypt .Joker files by following the guide below.

How to remove Aayu ransomware

What is Aayu ransomware?

Aayu is a malicious program that infects the victim’s computer with the intent to hold their data for ransom. Because of this behavior, it received a more specific definition – it is a ransomware program.
Holding data for ransom involves a field of science known as cryptography, as the hackers in control of the program cannot simply delete the data. It needs to be present, but inaccessible. So they utilize complex mathematical algorithms to essentially password-lock your files; a process more commonly known as encrypting them. The idea is that the victim cannot restore the files on their own because they lack the key (the password) and don’t know the algorithm used. So hackers tell them that they have no choice but to pay money. Although not completely true, this is how the reasoning goes.
Aayu specifically is a part of the STOP/Djvu ransomware family, very similar to other viruses in it (compare Mmdt to see for yourself). All of them change encrypted files’ extension, in this case, .aayu file extension. All of them leave a ransom note called “_readme.txt” on the Desktop (see image above for full text) with exactly the same demand, 980 US dollars or half as much if the victim pays promptly.
It is best to ignore this steep price, as it is possible to remove Aayu ransomware for free. You may also be able to decrypt .aayu files for free, or restore them using another method. Read this guide for more information.

How to remove Aamv ransomware

What is Aamv ransomware?

Aamv is a ransomware program in the STOP/Djvu family. If these are just words to you, without any meaning, we’ll quickly explain. A ransomware program is a virus that infects the victim’s computer to encrypt all their files. This makes them inaccessible: you cannot read or edit them. However, they are not gone; it is possible to decrypt these files to make them normal again. The hacker who created the program offers to decrypt the files the program encrypted, for a price. This is how these programs make money and why they exist.
Aamv in particular, like we’ve mentioned, is a STOP/Djvu strain. It is very similar to all other viruses in this family; just compare, for example, Oodt ransomware and see the similarities for yourself.
All viruses in this family change the extensions of the files they encrypt (in this case, to .aamv file extension). They also have identical ransom notes, all named “_readme.txt”, placed on the Desktop, and containing the same demands ($980, or $490 if paid within 3 days after infection). The only thing that differs is the hacker’s contact information. You can see Aamv ransom note on the image above.
This is not cheap, and even if it was, hackers are unlikely to actually decrypt your files. Instead, read this guide explaining how to remove Aamv ransomware and decrypt .aamv files for free.

How to remove Mmdt ransomware

What is Mmdt ransomware

Mmdt is a ransomware program. Assuming you’re unfamiliar with the term, ransomware is a class of malicious software (malware) that utilizes cryptographic algorithms to coerce money out of its victims. This is done by encrypting the victim’s files, which renders them inaccessible. You can think of it as password-locking, except in this case, the hacker is the only who knows the password. The criminal will then offer to decrypt the files for a fee. As these programs essentially hold your files for ransom, they are given the term ransomware.
Mmdt in particular belongs to the STOP/Djvu ransomware family. This means that it behaves nearly identically to other programs in this family (compare Vvew ransomware). The ransom note is always named “_readme.txt” and is always located on the victim’s Desktop. The text, too, is always identical, other than the hacker’s contact information. You can view the Mmdt ransom note on the image above, if you wish. The short version is that hackers want $980 for decryption, but will give a 50% discount if paid within 3 days after infection; the same as with all other STOP/Djvu viruses.
The virus also gives the files it encrypts a new extension – in this case, .mmdt file extension.
This guide will explain how to remove Mmdt ransomware and decrypt .mmdt files.

How to remove Oodt ransomware

What is Oodt ransomware

Oodt is a harmful program that generates money for the hackers who wrote it via ransom – hence the name, ransomware. The easiest thing to hold for ransom for a digital program is, of course, data. The virus encrypts all files on the targeted computer, which makes them impossible to access. To access them again, they need to be decrypted, which the hackers offer to do. The offer is facilitated, obviously, by the virus itself; it creates a ransom note named “_readme.txt” on the Desktop. Check it out on the image above, if you want; the short version is that the hackers want $980 for decryption and use a few psychological tricks to get the victim to pay. One of these tricks is 50% discount within the first 72 hours of infection. The virus also renamed the files that it encrypts, giving them .oodt file extension.
Read below to learn how to remove Oodt ransomware. However, this alone isn’t sufficient; you will also need a way to decrypt .oodt files. This is more difficult, but there are options, too.

How to remove Oovb ransomware

What is Oovb ransomware

Oovb is a computer virus designed to make money for the hacker who wrote it. Generally, viruses can achieve this goal in many ways – cryptocurrency mining, stealing bank accounts, and so on. In this case, however, the money isn’t being directly stolen. Instead, the virus makes all files on the victim’s computer unreadable using a special encryption algorithm, then demands money to decrypt them. This type of malicious programs is called ransomware. Oovb in particular belongs to the STOP/Djvu ransomware family, which means it behaves in a fashion very similar to other programs in this family (compare Hhwq, another ransomware program in the STOP/Djvu family).
Although the encryption method is always slightly different, otherwise these viruses are like peas in a pod. All of them give encrypted files a four-letter extension (after which they are named). This means that Oovb gives encrypted files .oovb file extension. All of them also create a “_readme.txt” file on the Desktop containing the ransom note, which is also always the same except for the hacker’s contact information. You can check Oovb ransom note on the image above.
In this guide, we will explain how to remove Oovb from your computer and how to decrypt .oovb files.
