What is Mitu ransomware?
Mitu is a harmful program that falls under the definition of ransomware. To be considered ransomware, a virus must be encrypting files and demanding money for their decryption – which is exactly what Mitu does. It encrypts all files on the infected computer and gives them .mitu file extension. Then, it creates a ransom note, which can be read on the image above. This note is a text file called “_readme.txt”. It states that the victim must pay 980 US dollars if they want to decrypt the files. To tempt the victims, this price is halved during the first three days. We advise you not to fall for this trick. The hackers want a lot of money, and they are also very unreliable. Many of them don’t decrypt the files even after receiving payment. Instead of paying them, you should investigate other ways to remove Mitu ransomware and decrypt .mitu files. You may start by reading the article below. Though by no means comprehensive, it does list several ways of retrieving your files.
