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 bazeksupport@onionmail.org 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.

How to remove Kevin ransomware

What is Kevin ransomware?

Kevin is a recently-discovered ransomware program. This term explains the primary aim of this virus: to extract money from its victims by the means of ransom. To accomplish this, Kevin ransomware performs a simple sequence of actions.
The first step is to encrypt the files. As such files cannot be accessed, they can be considered “stolen”. Then, it renames the encrypted files to highlight that an attack has taken place. To be more precise, the hacker’s e-mail address and .kevin file extension get added to the end of each filename.
Finally, the virus also creates a ransom note, named “ReadMe_kevin.txt”. This rather brief note can be read on the image above, and doesn’t really contain anything except the aforementioned e-mail address.
So, should you contact the criminal? Probably not. First, this will this encourage him to carry out future attacks; attacks that might target you again. Second, these people are neither trustworthy nor honorable. They’re criminals after all. Many of them stop replying after receiving, without bothering to decrypt the files at all.
For this reason, you should explore other ways to remove Kevin ransomware and decrypt .kevin files. Our guide aims to aid in this process of exploration.

How to remove HBM ransomware

HBM ransom note:

all your data has been locked us
You want to return?
write email hebem@cock.li or hebem@tuta.io

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

What is HBM ransomware?

HBM is a new ransomware program belonging to Dharma ransomware family. It encrypts the files on the victim’s computer, which makes them inaccessible. This is done to allow the hacker to demand money for decryption later. Generally speaking, all ransomware operates like this.
After encrypting the files, HBM renames them in a way typical for Dharma viruses. A victim’s ID, the hacker’s e-mail address, and .HBM file extension all get appended to the original name of the file. Once the encryption process is complete, the virus finally reveals its existence. Two ransom notes appear; the first one is a pop-up, and the second one is a text file named “info.txt”. The notes contain, more-or-less, the same information. For reference purposes, the text note is presented on the image above.
As neither note communicates how much money the hacker wants for decryption, you may feel tempted to contact him, simply so that you can ascertain the price and decide on the course of action afterwards. Though understandable, you must be aware of the risks involved, as contacting the hacker can make you into a target for future attacks.
The guide below explains how to remove HBM ransomware and decrypt .HBM files without contacting the criminal at all.

How to remove RansomBoggs ransomware

RansomBoggs ransom note:

Dear human life form!

This is James P. Sullivan, an employee of Monsters, Inc.

Recently our company has again expecienced great financial problems and we require some cash to move on with our 

electronic crap.
So we are relying on you in these hard times and are crying for help.

I am extremely sorry for the inconvenience but I am currently encrypting your documents using AES-128.
This key is encrypted using RSA public key and saved to aes.bin file:
[ C:\Users\[REDACTED]\Desktop\aes.bin ]

Please, DO NOT WORRY! I have a decrypting functionality too.
Just don't delete aes.bin, please. You will need it!

==================================================================================

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

What is RansomBoggs ransomware?

RansomBoggs ransomware is a malicious program designed to encrypt the files and demand money for decryption. This type of viruses is called ransomware as it quite literally makes money by demanding ransom. RansomBoggs has several other names; you may know it as Sullivan ransomware or Chsch ransomware.
After encrypting the files, RansomBoggs renames them – adding .chsch file extension – and creates a note detailing the demands, a ransom note if you will. This note, called “SullivanDecryptsYourFiles.txt”, can be read on the image above.
Evidently, the hacker behind RansomBoggs was feeling humorous when creating it, as the note references Monsters Incorporated, a cartoon movie released in 2001. Indeed, Sullivan is one of the characters in it. Frustratingly, the hacker doesn’t offer much in terms of actual information, such as his monetary demands. The victim is merely instructed not to delete a certain file and contact the hacker using one of the three methods provided.
You should note, however, that messaging the criminal might have consequences, for example future attacks. With that in mind, you may want to consider other ways to remove RansomBoggs ransomware and decrypt .chsch files. A few of these ways are described in the guide below.

How to remove NULLTHEGAME ransomware

NULLTHEGAME ransom note:

Don't worry, you can return all your files!

All you have to do is pay 30 monero Address: 897EQfuea2sQbte5YLssvUZR68pLkNHXPdNsXQPxEjnZ42Vc oDc19DpJAWr6NCVT2oAnWieozQPsRK7Bj83r49pN1LeaUi3

What guarantees that I will give back your files?

The fact that all I care about is the money! Not your files.


Sincerely: NULLTHEGAME$_$

Email me: bigphatballss@proton.me

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

What is NULLTHEGAME ransomware?

NULLTHEGAME ransomware (also known as NULL ransomware) is a new virus that belongs to Chaos family. Another recent example of a virus in this family is Anthraxbulletproof ransomware.
Created explicitly to make money, NULLTHEGAME utilizes digital ransom in order to accomplish this goal. It encrypts the victims’ files, adds .NULL file extension to their names, and creates a ransom note named “read_it.txt” (which you can read on the image above).
Encrypted files cannot be accessed in any way, but the note reassures the victim that they can be decrypted. The hacker demands 30 Monero coins for decryption. Although Monero, being a cryptocurrency, tends to fluctuate in price, one Monero coin currently equals 140 US dollars. This means that the hacker is asking for $4200, a significant amount of money for most people.
Very few people would consider paying this much, and even those that have the money to spare should think twice. Many cybercriminals responsible for ransomware programs disappear once the victim pays them, and do not decrypt the files. Thankfully, there are other ways to remove NULLTHEGAME ransomware and decrypt .NULL files. You can read about several such methods in the guide below.

How to remove Kcbu ransomware

What is Kcbu ransomware?

Kcbu is a recent iteration of STOP/Djvu ransomware. It encrypts the files with a cryptographic algorithm, much like any other ransomware would, and then renames them. The files receive a new four-letter extension, in this case .kcbu file extension. The name of the strain is derived from this extension.
Checking the extension is the only way to reliably identify a strain. You see, STOP/Djvu iterations are very similar to each other, they all leave the same ransom note and demand the same amount of money. You can compare another STOP/Djvu variant, Kcvp and you will see that they’re almost identical.
Although STOP/Djvu did change over time, those days, the ransom note is always named “_readme.txt” and always contains the same text. You can read the text of the note on the image above, though we will also summarize it. The note demands 980 US dollars in ransom, and offers a 50% discount for victims that pay within 72 hours.
Don’t rush to contact the hackers, however. Often, they will completely disappear after receiving the payment and will not decrypt anything. Instead, explore alternative ways to remove Kcbu ransomware and decrypt .kcbu files. Some of these ways are explained in the guide below.

How to remove Kcvp ransomware

What is Kcvp ransomware?

Kcvp is a novel strain of STOP/Djvu ransomware. More than a thousand strains exist, and most of them are nearly identical to each other. After encrypting the files, all STOP/Djvu strains add a four-letter extension to their names; in this case, .kcvp file extension. The strains are named after these extensions, as it is the easiest way to distinguish them. Although even these names are often similar; for example Tcvp is an another recent version of STOP/Djvu.
After this, the ransomware creates a ransom note. The note, named “_readme.txt”, always contains the same text, though the hackers’ contact information might differ. The virus demands $980 to decrypt the files, and offers a 50% discount to those who pay within 3 days as a manipulative trick. Full text of the note is available on the image above.
Almost a thousand dollars is quite a lot of money. It’s likely that you don’t want to pay that much to restore your files. With that in mind, we’ve prepared a guide explaining alternative ways to remove Kcvp ransomware and decrypt .kcvp files, those that don’t involve paying the hackers.

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

What is Bkqfmsahpt ransomware?

Bkqfmsahpt is the name of a new ransomware program. It is similar to another such program we’ve reported on recently, specifically Yguekcbe. This is not surprising, as both belong to Snatch ransomware family.
Once on the victim’s computer, it performs several malicious actions. The first of these is to encrypt the files using a cryptographic algorithm. Such files cannot be opened or edited unless they’re decrypted. The second is to rename these files, adding .bkqfmsahpt file extension to their names. This is how the virus got its name. The third, and the last, action is the creation of a ransom note. The note, named “HOW TO RESTORE YOUR FILES.TXT”, serves as a way for the hackers to communicate their demands. You can read its full text on the image above.
The message contained in the note makes it evident that Bkqfmsahpt specifically targets companies, though this doesn’t mean that private individuals can’t get infected with it. The note does not mention the price, only contact information.
But contacting the hackers may be a bad idea. Although we don’t have information on these hackers in particular, generally they tend to simply collect the money and disappear. This is why it may be wise to explore your other options. Some of these ways to remove Bkqfmsahpt ransomware and decrypt .bkqfmsahpt files are described in the guide below.
