How to remove Btnw ransomware

What is Btnw ransomware?

Btnw is a new ransomware strain in the STOP/Djvu family. It is very similar to other such strains (check out Mppn for comparison). It does, however, encrypt the files differently, so encryption methods that work on other STOP/Djvu viruses, such as Emsisoft Decryptor, may not work on this particular strain.
Btwn operates in the exactly same manner as all other ransomware programs. First, it encrypts all user files, then renames them (giving them .btnw file extension), and then finally creates a ransom note named “_readme.txt”. This note can be read on the image above; we will also summarize the demands in the next paragraph.
Just like every other ransomware in the STOP/Djvu family, Btwn demands $980 to decrypt the files. The note also offers a 50% discount for the first three days after infection; you should be aware that this is an attempt to manipulate victims into paying.
So, should you pay? Probably not. Hackers behind ransomware often ignore the victims and disappear without decrypting their files. It’s possible that you will get your files back by paying, but it is by no means a certainty.
The guide below will describe several alternative ways to remove Btwn ransomware and decrypt .btwn files, ones that don’t rely on paying the hackers.

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

What is Bjrtziwsgw ransomware?

Bjrtziwsgw is the name of a new ransomware virus. After infecting a computer, the virus encrypts all user files on it. This means that it will encrypt your pictures, documents, and so on, but will leave the computer functional. These encrypted files cannot be opened or edited; to access them again, decryption is required.
This is precisely what the hacker behind the virus offers, to decrypt the files in exchange for a fee. This information is communicated to the victim via a ransom note, a text file named “HOW TO RESTORE YOUR FILES.TXT”. The image above contains the full text of the note, but you can also keep reading for a short summary.
The note suggests that Bjrtziwsgw was intended to target companies, though it may also appear on ordinary people’s computer too, simply by accident. However, the hackers would most likely refuse to talk to you in this case. The note doesn’t even specify the ransom amount, meaning that they intend to negotiate the price with each victim.
Our guide will provide an alternative way to remove Bjrtziwsgw ransomware and decrypt .bjrtziwsgw files, one that doesn’t involve contacting the hackers at all.

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

What is Lucknite ransomware?

Lucknite is the name of a new ransomware virus. This means that it’s a computer program that encrypts the victim’s files so that it can demand ransom for their decryption. Lucknite also performs several other actions. It renames the encrypted files, giving them .lucknite file extension, and it also creates a ransom note called “README.txt”.
This note is rather crucial, as it communicates the hacker’s demands to the victim. You can read the full text of the note on the image above, or keep reading for the summary of the demands.
The hacker demands 50 US dollars, which is a relatively modest sum when you consider that many ransomware viruses demand hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars. The payment is to be made in a cryptocurrency named Ethereum.
As 50 dollars isn’t much, you might be considering paying the hacker. We’re not going to discourage you from doing this, should you so choose, but you must be aware of the risks. Paying the hacker may encourage him to target you again in the future; after all, you’ve already paid once. The criminal may also decide to disappear with your money without decrypting the files.
This is why you should be aware of alternative ways to remove Lucknite ransomware and decrypt .lucknite files. Some of them are covered in the guide below.

How to remove MEOW ransomware

MEOW ransom note:


Your files has been encrypted!

Need decrypt?  Write to e-mail:

or Telegram:




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

What is MEOW ransomware?

MEOW is the name of a recently-discovered ransomware (a virus that encrypts your files and asks for money to decrypt them). Beyond encrypting the files, it also performs two other actions, both of which facilitate this digital ransom scheme.
Firstly, it renames the affected files, giving them .MEOW file extension. This is done to make it easier for the victim to recognize the actions of the virus as an intentional attack, not a computer error. Certain ransomware programs, such as HBM ransomware, make it even more obvious by adding the hacker’s e-mail to the filenames. MEOW is not one of them, though.
Secondly, it leaves a ransom note – nothing fancy, just a text file – containing the hacker’s contact information: several e-mails and Telegram handles. This note can be read on the image above.
If your files have been encrypted by MEOW ransomware, you might be thinking about writing to the hacker. Should you? It’s hard to tell, but doing so carries certain risks. For example, the hacker may decide to target you again in the future since you were willing to pay, or take your money and disappear without decrypting the files. The guide below will explain other ways to remove MEOW ransomware and decrypt .MEOW files so that you can make an informed decision.

How to remove Mppn ransomware

What is Mppn ransomware?

Mppn is a ransomware program that belongs to the STOP/Djvu family of ransomware. It operates in the same fashion as all other ransomware programs: it encrypts files on the infected computer, then renames them (adding .mppn file extension to the end of the name), and leaves a ransom note named “_readme.txt”. However, it is even more similar to other STOP/Djvu viruses, as they always have the same demands (which you can confirm by reading about any other STOP/Djvu ransomware, for example Mbtf ransomware).
The image above is a screenshot of the Mppn ransom note; you can read it to see what the hackers demand and how they go about it. Or, you can keep reading as we will summarize the note in the next paragraph.
Mppn demands $980 for decryption; however, they also promise a 50% discount should the victim pay within 3 days of infection. This is a well-known manipulation tactic. By creating a sense of urgency, they make it more likely that the victims will contact them.
Don’t fall for it. Few ransomware hackers even bother decrypting the files; most just take the money and cease all communications afterwards. This is why you should explore alternative ways to remove Mppn ransomware and decrypt .mppn files, such as these explained in the guide below.

How to remove Mbtf ransomware

What is Mbtf ransomware?

Mbtf is a new version of STOP/Djvu virus. It operates as a ransomware program, which means it encrypts the victim’s files and then demands money for their decryption. All ransomware programs share a certain resemblance as they all, by definition, operate in this way. But STOP/Djvu ransomware goes further than that; all strains of this ransomware are nearly the same as one another. If you compare Mbtf to, for example, Kcbu, another such strain, you will be able to see it for yourself.
After encrypting the files, Mbtf renames them, adding .mbtf file extension. All STOP/Djvu viruses do this, and the extension is always four letters long (though that was not the case a few years ago).
Finally, Mbtf creates a ransom note called “_readme.txt” to communicate its demands. This note can be read on the image above, though it’s hardly remarkable; all STOP/Djvu ransomware has the same ransom note and demands. Speaking of, the demands are simple enough, $980 for decryption, or half that if paid within 3 days of infection.
However, it is not recommended to pay the hackers even if you can afford it, as they often choose to take the money without decrypting files. Exploring alternative options to remove Mbtf ransomware and decrypt .mbtf files would be a better choice; our guide will tell you about some of them.

This is the end of the note. Below you will find a guide explaining how to remove Gqlmcwnhh ransomware and decrypt .gqlmcwnhh files.

What is Gqlmcwnhh ransomware?

Gqlmcwnhh is the name of a new ransomware program in the Snatch family. Designed to make money via ransom, Gqlmcwnhh encrypts all files on computers it infects, with the exception of system files. The encrypted files are renamed, receiving .gqlmcwnhh file extension. Then the virus creates a ransom note, a text file named “HOW TO RESTORE YOUR FILES.TXT”. This note can be read on the image above.
The note indicates that Gqlmcwnhh was made to target specifically companies, similar to Bkqfmsahpt and Yguekcbe, other recent viruses in the Snatch family. Despite this, regular users may also fall victim to this ransomware by accident. The hackers do not mention any price, as negotiating is a better tactic when dealing with high-profile targets.
Conversely, this also means that if you’re a normal person whose computer got infected accidentally, the hackers will likely find you beneath their notice, should you choose to contact them. That said, communicating with them is not recommended anyway, so you’re not really losing much. Using our guide to remove Gqlmcwnhh ransomware and decrypt .gqlmcwnhh is a viable alternative to contacting the criminals.

!!! DANGER !!

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

What is DATAF LOCKER ransomware?

DATAF LOCKER is a malevolent program classified as ransomware. It performs a specific set of actions with the aim of holding the victim’s files for ransom (hence, ransomware).
The first, and the most essential, step that any ransomware program performs is file encryption. By utilizing cryptographic algorithms, these viruses encrypt all user data on the computer: pictures, videos, text documents, etc. These files are “locked” in the sense that it is not possible to view or edit them. To return them to their original state, they must be decrypted first.
During the second step, the program renames the files that were encrypted. Although not necessary, most ransomware programs do it to signal that something is wrong to the victim. In DATAF LOCKER’s case, the affected files are given .dataf file extension.
The last step is the creation of a ransom note, which is essential as well. Since any ransomware program exists to generate money, it needs to communicate its demands to the victim. DATAF’s ransom note can be read on the image above.
Whether to pay the hacker or not is a personal decision, but paying is associated with many risks and generally not recommended. Our guide presents an alternative: a way to remove DATAF LOCKER ransomware and decrypt .dataf files without having to contact the criminal at all.

How to remove Uyit ransomware

What is Uyit ransomware?

Uyit is a recently-discovered strain of STOP/Djvu ransomware. In simple terms, this means that Uyit was not created completely from scratch; instead it is based on Djvu virus. STOP/Djvu is ubiquitous in the world of ransomware, with more than a thousand known strains. This is possible because these strains are nearly identical to one another. You can see the similarity for yourself by comparing Uyit to another STOP/Djvu strain, for example Kcvp.
It is worth noting that Uyit renames the files after encrypting them: .uyit file extension gets added to the end of the name. It also creates a ransom note, “_readme.txt”, which you can read on the image above.
Both the text of the note and its demands are consistent with other Djvu variants. The virus demands $980 in payment, or $490 for those who contact the hackers within 72 hours of infection.
That said, if you think that this is a fantastic deal that you should take advantage of, you are sorely mistaken. Hackers who create ransomware often disappear after getting paid, without encrypting the files at all. Such behavior is even more likely considering how widespread STOP/Djvu is. The guide below offers an alternative way to remove Uyit ransomware and decrypt .uyit files.

How to remove Bazek ransomware

Bazek ransom note:

All your important files have been encrypted with AES256 by the Bazek Ransomware!
Reach out to me via e-mail at to get your files decrypted
We will delete your decryption key if you do not contact us withing 48 Hours and your files are gone forever!
Personal identification code: [REDACTED]

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

What is Bazek ransomware?

Bazek is a ransomware program, which means that it exists to generate money via ransom. Digital ransom is accomplished by encrypting files – a process which makes them inaccessible – and demanding payment for their decryption. This is what all ransomware programs do, by definition, and Bazek is no exception to this.
After encrypting the files, Bazek also renames them, adding .bazek file extension to their names. This means that a file named “pic.jpg” would be renamed to “pic.jpg.bazek”, to give an example. This is the origin of the name of this virus.
Finally, Bazek creates a ransom note called “README.txt”, which you can see on the image above. The note does not mention the decryption price, only the hackers’ e-mail. It also mentions that the victim has only 48 hours to contact the hacker, and after this, the files will be impossible to recover.
Don’t panic, however. Don’t rush to contact the criminals; this is exactly what they want. Remember, the note was specifically written to manipulate you into paying. It is best to remain level-headed and explore other ways to remove Bazek ransomware and decrypt .bazek files, such as these described in the guide below.
