How to remove Tywd ransomware

What is Tywd ransomware?

Tywd is a recent variant of STOP/Djvu ransomware virus. All of these variants are nearly identical, since they are made using the same template. You can verify this by checking out Tycx, another recent STOP/Djvu virus.
But what does Tywd actually do? Well, as a ransomware virus, its goal is to encrypt the files on the infected computer, which makes them inaccessible (impossible to open and edit). That, in turn, is done so that the hacker responsible for the virus could demand money to restore these files (decrypt them).
This, essentially, is all Tywd does. It encrypts the victim’s files, gives them .tywd file extension, and creates a ransom note to let the victim know how to contact the hacker and how much money he wants. This note can be read on the image above; however, the paragraph below provides a brief summary.
Tywd’s ransom note, “_readme.txt”, is identical to the notes left by other STOP/Djvu viruses. It provides the victim with two e-mail addresses for contacting the hackers and demands $980 in ransom. Alternatively, the victim can pay $490, provided they message the hackers within 3 days of infection.
Still, that is quite expensive. If you’re not willing to pay, or can’t afford to, there are alternative options. The guide below will explain how to remove Tywd ransomware and decrypt .tywd files without paying the criminals.

How to remove Tycx ransomware

What is Tycx ransomware?

Tycx is a computer virus that operates as ransomware. This means it encrypts the user’s files and demands payment for their decryption. Tycx belongs to the STOP/Djvu ransomware family, and is very similar to other STOP/Djvu viruses such as Qazx.
Every file encrypted by Tycx receives .tycx file extension; its previous extension becomes a part of the file name. So an image named “pic.jpg” would be renamed to “pic.jpg.tycx”, for example.
Tycx ransomware also creates a ransom note, which is called “_readme.txt”. The image above contains the full text of the note, and here’s the overview. The note provides the victim with the hackers’ contact information in form of two e-mail addresses, and demands $980 in ransom. Victims that pay within three days of infection have to pay less, however, only $490.
But neither price is particularly low. Whether it’s a thousand dollars or five hundred, that’s still more than most people are willing to pay to restore their files. And, to add insult to injury, paying doesn’t even guarantee that you’ll get your files back. Often, the hackers will simply take the money and disappear.
So that is quite a predicament, but we have a solution. Read the guide below to learn how to remove Tycx ransomware and decrypt .tycx files without paying or contacting the hackers.

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

What is Basn ransomware?

Basn is a malicious program that is categorized as ransomware by the researchers. The ransom note created by this virus indicates that it targets companies, though it may have accidentally infected home computers as well.
Files encrypted by this ransomware program have .basn file extension. As the virus has no official name, the extension also serves as the name of the virus.
Basn, just like every other ransomware virus, attempts to force the victim to pay the hacker, and this is not possible without communication. This is why the ransom note left by the virus, “unlock your files.txt”, gives the victim a way to contact the hackers. You may read the full text of the note on the image above or keep reading for the summary.
The note does not mention how much the hackers want for decryption; since Basn was designed to target companies, the price is likely very high. However, the hackers mention that they’ll accept payments only in BitCoin or Monero cryptocurrencies.
So, what should you do if you’ve been infected by Basn? Contacting the hackers is not a good idea; often, they take the money without decrypting the files. In this case, they might not even want to talk to you, since they indended to target companies, not regular people. Instead, you should read our guide. It will tell you how to remove Basn ransomware and decrypt .basn files.

How to remove Usr ransomware

Usr ransom note:

!!!All of your files are encrypted!!!
To decrypt them send e-mail to this address:
If we don't answer in 24h., send e-mail to this address: 

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

What is Usr ransomware?

Usr is a ransomware-type virus that belongs to the Phobos family. Viruses that are a part of a family are made using a template; each new virus features only minor modifications, such as changing contact information, demands, and antivirus evasion strategies. This means they’re very similar to each other, which is precisely why the security researchers group them together.
All viruses in the Phobos family have the same ransom note, always called “info.txt”. It is rather short and features two e-mail addresses that change; the rest of the text remains the same. You can read this note on the image above. It doesn’t feature any useful information beyond the hackers’ e-mails, however.
Another ransom note appears as a pop-up. It is longer, but doesn’t mention much about the demands either; the only valuable piece of information is that the hackers will only accept Bitcoin as payment. But it is not known how much money the hackers want. Perhaps there’s no single answer, and they negotiate in each case.
Obviously, not everyone is willing to pay the hackers, and many would be reluctant to contact them at all. Thankfully, there is an alternative. Our guide will explain how to remove Usr ransomware and decrypt .usr files without interacting with the criminals.

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

What is CryptoTorLocker ransomware?

CryptoTorLocker, also known as CryptoTorLocker2015, is a recent ransomware program. To be more specific, it is a modified version of the CryptoLocker ransomware. Despite the name, it was made this year (2023), not in 2015.
Most contemporary viruses exist to enrich the hackers. Viruses classified as ransomware employ a specific strategy to accomplish this: they encrypt the files on the victim’s computer and demand payment for decryption. It is also not uncommon for these viruses to rename the encrypted files; in this case, they are given “.CryptoTorLocker2015!” file extension.
To communicate with the victim, CryptoTorLocker opens two pop-up windows and creates a ransom note called “HOW TO DECRYPT FILES.txt”, all of which contain roughly the same text (which you can read on the image above). The note is written in an incoherent manner which suggests that it was written by a non-native English speaker.
Unfortunately, the worst part of the note is not its broken grammar. The hackers demand 0.5 BTC for decrypting the files. As of the date of writing, 0.5 BTC is equal to approximately 12,000 USD (click here for an up-to-date conversion).
Very few people would be willing to pay this amount of money. Thus, it makes perfect sense to explore alternative ways to remove CryptoTorLocker ransomware and decrypt .CryptoTorLocker2015! files. The guide below can help you with that.

How to remove DrWeb (Xorist) ransomware

What is DrWeb ransomware?

DrWeb is the name of a new ransomware program; these viruses encrypt the files on the infected computer and demand money for the decryption. DrWeb belongs to the Xorist family of ransomware, which means it shares similarities with other viruses in this family. Files encrypted by this virus have “.DrWeb” file extension.
It is worth noting that although this virus is called DrWeb, there’s also an antivirus under the same name. This may cause some confusion, so you may want to specify that you’re looking for “DrWeb ransomware virus” while searching information about this ransomware.
The ransom note left by the virus, “КАК РАСШИФРОВАТЬ ФАЙЛЫ.txt”, is written entirely in Russian, but we have prepared a translation for you. Alternatively, if you can read Russian, check the image above for the original text. READ MORE

How to remove Qazx ransomware

What is Qazx ransomware?

Qazx is a destructive program that falls under the ransomware classification. This means that it encrypts the files on the target computer and demands ransom for the decryption.
It is important to note that Qazx belongs to the STOP/Djvu ransomware family. In simple terms, this means that it’s similar to other programs in the family, such as Gosw.
It is also worth noting that files encrypted by the ransomware have .qazx file extension; this means that this virus is easy to identify. This is especially important because the ransom note created by the virus, “_readme.txt”, is not unique; all STOP/Djvu ransomware uses the same text.
You can read the text of the ransom note on the image above. To summarize, the hackers want $980 in ransom. Alternatively, if the victim pays within three days, the price is $490. This “incentive” exists because the hackers want their victims to quickly pay the ransom and not think too much about it.
Why? Because people who do think about it can realize that paying the hackers is very risky. They can simply take their money and disappear with it, not decrypting anything. This is why you should consider following our guide instead. It will explain how to remove Qazx ransomware and decrypt .qazx files without dealing with these criminals.

How to remove Gosw ransomware

What is Gosw ransomware?

Gosw is a new ransomware virus that uses STOP/Djvu template. In the world of malware, quantity often beats quality, which is why hacker often release one virus right after another. To speed things up, they’re using templates, changing only what’s necessary. This is why Gosw is so similar to other viruses like Goba and Goaq.
Gosw is a ransomware virus. This means that it encrypts the victim’s files so that it can extort money for decryption. Affected files are gives .gosw file extension, which can be used to identify this virus. The virus also leaves a ransom note (“_readme.txt”, can be read on the image above). This note gives the victim the hacker’s contact information and tells them how much they need to pay ($980 or $490).
But this note is not entirely truthful. It says that paying the hackers is the only way to restore the files, however, this is not completely correct. You may be able to remove Gosw ransomware and decrypt .gosw files without paying the hacker anything. Read the guide below for instructions.

How to remove Goaq ransomware

What is Goaq ransomware?

Goaq is a malicious program (a virus) that infects computers through advertisements on shady websites, suspicious e-mail attachments, and other means. After taking control of a computer, Goaq encrypts all user files that it can find: documents, spreadsheets, pictures, videos, and so on. It also gives these files .goaq file extension.
It is not possible for the victim to view or edit these encrypted files; effectively, they’re lost. But encrypting files is not the same as deleting them. It is more like locking the files with a password. The hacker is the only person who knows it, however; the whole point of the virus is to sell the password to the victim. Since this is, quite clearly, extortion, these viruses are called ransomware.
After encrypting the files, the virus creates a text file called “_readme.txt”, which contains the hackers’ demands. You can read it on the image above. From this note, we can learn that the hackers want $980, or $490 if the victim pays within three days.
Quite expensive, isn’t it? And to add insult to the injury, these criminals often disappear after receiving the money, without decrypting the files. This is why paying them is not recommended. Instead, read the article below; it will explain how to remove Goaq ransomware and decrypt .goaq files without involving the hacker.

How to remove Goba ransomware

What is Goba ransomware?

Goba is a ransomware-type virus discovered only a few days ago. It belongs to the STOP/Djvu ransomware family, which means it is similar to other STOP/Djvu viruses, like Qotr. That is because all these viruses share the same template.
As a ransomware program, Goba attempts to make money by encrypting the files on the infected computer. These files cannot be opened or edited in any way unless they’re decrypted. The hackers behind Goba demand money to perform this procedure. The amount of money they demand is quite significant, 980 or 490 US dollars. Evidently, the hackers are hoping that the victim would have enough valuable files to justify this price.
These demands are communicated to the victim through a text file called “_readme.txt”, which you can read on the image above. Please note, however, that this note is not unique to Goba ransomware. All Djvu viruses use the same note. As such, the note can’t be used to identify the ransomware. To do that, you need to check the extension of the encrypted files. Those encrypted by Goba have .goba file extension.
After reading all this, you’re probably wondering whether it’s possible to avoid paying the hackers. And the answer is yes. The guide below will explain how to remove Goba ransomware and decrypt .goba files without even talking to the criminal. Not all files may be recoverable, however.
