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.
