How to remove Neqp ransomware

What is Neqp ransomware?

Neqp ransomware is a virus that encrypts data on the computers it infects. By doing so, it can then demand money for its decryption. These programs are called ransomware; their attacks can be quite dangerous for individuals and businesses alike.
But encrypting the files is not the only thing Neqp virus does. It also gives them .neqp file extension, which is useful for the purposes of identification. And, of course, the virus also creates a ransom note. In this text file named “_readme.txt”, the hackers state their demands.
Of course, there’s nothing elaborate about these demands – all the hackers want is money. But they do want a lot of it. According to the ransom note, the price of decryption is $490 for the first three days after infection, and $980 afterwards. Quite expensive, no? To add insult to injury, sometimes the hackers choose to simply ignore the victims after getting paid; getting the files back is not guaranteed.
All in all, the hackers offer a thoroughly rotten deal. But paying them is not your only option; read the guide below to learn about other ways to remove Neqp ransomware and decrypt .neqp files.

How to remove Weqp ransomware

What is Weqp ransomware?

Weqp is a harmful ransomware program; such programs are known for encrypting data on victims’ computers and demanding money to decrypt it. Weqp was made using STOP/Djvu virus template, and strongly resembles certain other viruses, like Vatq, because of it.
Encrypting the files is not the only action performed by the Weqp virus. These encrypted files are also renamed (they receive .weqp file extension). More importantly, the virus creates a ransom note. This text file, called “_readme.txt”, contains important information – the hackers’ e-mail address and their demands.
The e-mail is obviously not very useful, since you shouldn’t be contacting the criminals anyway (you may report the address to the authorities, however). Why? Well, it’s risky and dangerous – and their demands will dissuade all but the most desperate victims. The hackers want $980 or $490 for decryption (it depends on how quickly the victim pays). Quite expensive even for those living in the first world, and completely unaffordable for anyone else.
If you don’t want to throw away half a thousand dollars, you should read our guide. You will learn several ways to remove Weqp ransomware and decrypt .weqp files that bypass the hackers entirely.

How to remove Vatq ransomware

What is Vatq ransomware?

Vatq is a novel strain of STOP/Djvu, a ransomware virus. Such viruses are designed to make money via extortion: they encrypt files on the infected computer and demand payment for their decryption.
A ransomware attack, and the subsequent loss of data, can be highly damaging, which is why the hackers often demand large sums of money; they hope that their victims are desperate enough to pay. In Vatq’s case, they demand $490 or $980 (it depends on how quickly the victim pays). These demands a communicated via a text file called “_readme.txt”, which can be read in its entirety on the image above.
Not all data lost to ransomware attacks is crucial, however, and not all victims of ransomware are willing to pay such money. Indeed, even those who are willing ought to consider twice – many hackers don’t actually decrypt anything after receiving payment and simply ghost the victim instead.
But not all hope is lost. There are several alternative ways that may be used to remove Vatq ransomware and decrypt .vatq files. Read about them in the article below.

How to remove Vaze ransomware

What is Vaze ransomware?

Vaze is a dangerous virus; upon infection, it encrypts all files on the affected computer. After doing this, it demands money from the victim, promising to decrypt the files in return. Viruses that do this are called ransomware.
Although countless ransomware viruses exist, all of them demonstrate pretty much the same behavior. Obviously, all of them encrypt files and create a ransom note that contains the demands. Some (though not all) may also rename the encrypted files and change the desktop background.
Vapo does rename the files (giving them .vapo file extension), but does not change the background. Its ransom note is called “_readme.txt”, and demands $980 from the victim. A so-called “discount” is also offered; the price is “lowered” by 50% for the first three days after infection. Don’t be tricked, though; this is just a deceptive way to say that the price will be doubled after three days.
Needless to say, you should not give these criminals a single cent. Aside from the fact that paying will encourage them to create more viruses, paying is also unreliable; many hackers simply take the money but don’t decrypt any files. Instead, why not read our guide? By following its instructions, you should be able to remove Vaze ransomware and decrypt .vaze files without paying.

How to remove Vapo ransomware

What is Vapo ransomware?

Vapo is a highly damaging program that encrypts all files on the computers it infects. This virus, as well as every other virus that behaves in this manner, are known as ransomware.
Thanks to antivirus programs and other ways to disrupt the hackers’ activities, ransomware viruses quickly become ineffective. Unfortunately, the hackers adapted by releasing new viruses almost every day; they maintain this pace by re-using most of the code. As a result, many viruses are very similar to each other. For example, Vapo is almost the same as Gatq, an older ransomware virus.
For a more practical perspective, let’s take a look at the ransom note left by the Vapo virus. It is a text file called “_readme.txt” that contains the hackers’ demands. The victim, they say, must pay 980 US dollars to decrypt their files. They also offer a 50% discount that quickly expires, to pressure people into paying.
If paying either $980 or $490 to gain access to your own data doesn’t sound attractive to you – and it shouldn’t – then you’ll be happy to learn that there’s an alternative. Read the article below and learn how to remove Vapo ransomware and decrypt .vapo files without paying the criminals.

How to remove Gatq ransomware

What is Gatq ransomware?

Gatq is a harmful program in the ransomware category. These viruses prevent their victims from accessing their files by encrypting them, then demands money for decryption.
Most ransomware viruses are made using a template, which allows the hackers to create them very fast. By creating many viruses that are slightly different from one another, the criminals hope to bypass threat detection systems of antiviruses.
Gatq is one such virus; it was made using the STOP/Djvu template. As a consequence of this, it is very similar to other viruses made with the same template (e.g. Gaze and Gapo). But it is still very easy to determine which virus you’re dealing with; files encrypted by this virus have .gatq file extension.
By reading the ransom note created by the virus, “_readme.txt”, we can determine the hackers’ demands. There’s nothing complex about them; as the criminals are simply trying to make money, that is what they demand. According to the note, the victim has to pay 980 US dollars to decrypt the files. To pressure people into paying, they also offer a “discount” for those who pay quickly.
However, the note lies. There are other ways to remove Gatq ransomware and decrypt .gatq files; paying the hackers is not the only option. Read our guide to learn what else you can do.

How to remove Gaze ransomware

What is Gaze ransomware?

Gaze is a ransomware virus. Viruses of this type encrypt all files on the victim’s computer and demand ransom to decrypt them. Hence, the name.
Gaze is not a unique virus; it was made using the STOP/Djvu template. Each day, hackers create new viruses using this template, altering them slightly in hopes of bypassing antivirus protection. As a result, thousands of STOP/Djvu viruses exist: Gapo, Xaro, and Xash are several recent examples.
But, although Gaze is similar to other viruses in the STOP/Djvu family, there is still a reliable way to identify it. All STOP/Djvu viruses rename the victim’s files after encryption and give them a new four-letter extension – .gaze file extension, in our case.
The hackers’ demands remain the same in each STOP/Djvu iteration – evidently, they see no need to alter them. They are communicated via a ransom note – always called “_readme.txt” – and are pretty simple. The victim must pay $980 to receive their files back, or $490 if they pay within 72 hours (3 days) of infection.
The hackers insist that paying is the only way to restore your files, but this is a lie. There are, in fact, other ways to remove Gaze ransomware and decrypt .gaze files – read about them in the article below.

How to remove Gapo ransomware

What is Gapo ransomware?

Gapo is a malicious program – that is to say, a virus – that extorts money out of its victims by encrypting their files and demanding payment to decrypt them. Viruses that generate money for the hacker in this manner are classified as ransomware.
Generally speaking, there are two types of ransomware attacks. There are carefully crafted viruses out there, made to attack one specific target (typically a large company); these can demand millions of dollars in ransom. The other kind are mass-produced viruses that target the general public and demand much less money.
Gapo is the latter kind of virus. It shares many similarities with other viruses, as it was made using a template. However, files encrypted by this virus have .gapo file extension, so it’s still possible to distinguish it from others.
As Gapo virus targets an average person, its demands aren’t astronomically high. The ransom note created by the virus, a text file called “_readme.txt”, states that each victim must pay $980 (or $490 if they pay quickly) to get their files back.
This, of course, is still pretty expensive, especially if you live in a developing country. But paying is not your only option. In the guide below, you can find a list of alternative ways to remove Gapo ransomware and decrypt .gapo files.

How to remove Xaro ransomware

What is Xaro ransomware?

Xaro is one of the latest computer viruses. It is classified as ransomware, which means that this virus encrypts the victims’ files and demands payment to decrypt them.
Xaro belongs to the STOP/Djvu family of ransomware, which includes many viruses that are very similar to each other. However, all files encrypted by Xaro receive .xaro file extension, so it shouldn’t be difficult to identify this specific virus.
Once it has finished encrypting the files, tne virus creates a ransom note – a text file named “_readme.txt”. The note contains the hackers’ contact information and their demands. It states that each victim must pay $980 (or $490 if they pay within 3 days) to receive their files back.
These demands are obviously quite unacceptable – who wants to lose a thousand dollars? Thankfully, paying the criminals isn’t the only option. We’ve compiled a list of alternative ways to remove Xaro ransomware and decrypt .xaro files; read it in the article below.

How to remove Xash ransomware

What is Xash ransomware?

Xash is a harmful program that encrypts files on your computer, then demands money to give them back. This behavior is the defining characteristic of ransomware, a category of viruses.
There are many other viruses similar to Xash out there, like Gatz and Qopz. Despite this, it is easy to determine which virus encrypted your files – almost all ransomware, Xash included, gives encrypted files a new extension (in this case, .xash file extension).
As you may already know, the hackers want $980 or $490 for decryption – this is mentioned in the “_readme.txt” file left by the virus. For most people, this price is not acceptable; since you’re reading this article, this likely includes you.
So, we have some good news. It is indeed possible to remove Xash ransomware and decrypt .xash files without paying the cybercriminals. Not all files may be recoverable, but it’s still a lot better than losing almost a thousand dollars. Read the guide below to learn which options are available to you.
