What is Neqp ransomware?
Neqp ransomware is a virus that encrypts data on the computers it infects. By doing so, it can then demand money for its decryption. These programs are called ransomware; their attacks can be quite dangerous for individuals and businesses alike.
But encrypting the files is not the only thing Neqp virus does. It also gives them .neqp file extension, which is useful for the purposes of identification. And, of course, the virus also creates a ransom note. In this text file named “_readme.txt”, the hackers state their demands.
Of course, there’s nothing elaborate about these demands – all the hackers want is money. But they do want a lot of it. According to the ransom note, the price of decryption is $490 for the first three days after infection, and $980 afterwards. Quite expensive, no? To add insult to injury, sometimes the hackers choose to simply ignore the victims after getting paid; getting the files back is not guaranteed.
All in all, the hackers offer a thoroughly rotten deal. But paying them is not your only option; read the guide below to learn about other ways to remove Neqp ransomware and decrypt .neqp files.
