What is Inlock ransomware?

Inlock is a malicious program that falls under the category of ransomware. Once it infects a computer, the virus will encrypt all files on it. Encrypted files are essentially useless: you cannot view or edit them. But it’s possible to decrypt them, which will make them accessible again. This, basically, is the ransomware “business model”, to encrypt the files and then demand payment for decryption.
Inlock ransomware does several things beyond just encrypting the files, however. It renames the files as well: all encrypted files receive .inlock file extension. It also leaves a ransom note, named “READ_IT.txt”. Unhelpfully, the note is written in Spanish. The original note can be seen on the image above, and here’s the translation. READ MORE

How to remove Dom ransomware

Dom ransom note:


All your files, documents, photos, databases and other important files are encrypted.

You are not able to decrypt it by yourself! The only method of recovering files is to purchase an unique 

private key.
Only we can give you this key and only we can recover your files.

Do you really want to restore your files?
You can write us to our mailboxes:
(in subject line please write your MachineID: [REDACTED] and LaunchID: [REDACTED])

* Do not rename encrypted files.
* Do not try to decrypt your data using third party software, it may cause permanent data loss.
* Decryption of your files with the help of third parties may cause increased price (they add their fee 

to our) or you can become a victim of a scam.

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

What is Dom ransomware?

Dom is a new virus that can be categorized as ransomware. In simple terms, ransomware programs “steal” your files and demand money to get them back. This is done by encrypting your files with a cryptographic algorithm, which makes them impossible to view or edit. But this is a reversible process. With a cryptographic key – a password if you will – these files can be restored. This is what hackers try to sell you: a key, or a program to automatically apply it.
When Dom encrypts files, it also renames them, which is a common practice. The files’ original name gets appended with an ID, the hackers’ email, and finally, .dom file extension.
The ransom note for Dom is named “ENCRYPTED.txt”, and is located on the Desktop. The note does not mention the price, merely the hackers’ email and some instructions for the victims. The full note can be read on the image above.
Contacting the hackers is bad for several reasons. Obviously, you will have to pay, but even if you’re willing to, it doesn’t guarantee getting your files back; often, hackers simply ghost victims after receiving payment. The guide below will inform you about alternative ways to remove Dom ransomware and decrypt .dom files.

How to remove Pozq ransomware

What is Pozq ransomware?

Pozq is a malware program (a computer virus). Specifically, it is a ransomware program: a virus that encrypts all files to render them inaccessible, then demands payment (i.e. ransom) to decrypt them. Pozq belongs to the STOP/Djvu ransomware family. Generally, viruses in one family are similar to each other, because they’re based on the same computer code. This is true for STOP/Djvu viruses as well; in fact they’re remarkably similar to each other (just compare Powd).
When Pozq encrypts files, it also changes their names. For example, “img.jpg” would be renamed to “img.jpg.pozq”; as you can see, the virus adds .pozq file extension. To communicate the ransom demands to the victim, Pozq leaves a ransom note, “_readme.txt”. It contains the hackers’ contact information as well as the sum demanded from the victim. The hackers want a whooping $980 for the files, although a 50% discount is offered.
However, generally speaking you should not pay these criminals, or even contact them at all. They’re likely to ghost you after receiving payment, and you will be marked as a target for future attacks as a result. The guide below will explore other ways to remove .pozq ransomware and decrypt .pozq files.

How to remove Powd ransomware

What is Powd ransomware?

Powd is a computer virus in the STOP/Djvu family, one that falls under the ransomware category. Very roughly speaking, this means that it steals files from the computers it infects, and demands payment to give them back. To be more specific, files don’t get actually stolen, they’re digital after all. Instead, Powd encrypts them with a cryptographic algorithm. This means that they cannot be opened, or edited, or accessed in any way, until they’re decrypted. But to decrypt the files, a cryptographic key (a password essentially) is needed. The virus will tell this password to the hacker, but, of course, not to the victim. The victim will instead receive a ransom note demanding pay.
Powd ransom note, “_readme.txt”, doesn’t contain much valuable information; most of it is dedicated to psychological tricks. Still, it mentions the price of getting the files back: $980. A discount is also offered, though that should be considered one of the aforementioned tricks. The full text of the note can be read on the image above. Powd also renames the files after encrypting them; they receive .powd file extension.
Paying the hackers is not advised. It is, of course, expensive, but you also have no real guarantee that they will give you your files back. You may explore alternative ways to remove Powd ransomware and decrypt .powd files in the guide below.

How to remove Killnet ransomware

Killnet ransom note (in Russian):

Наш официальный @killnet_reservs
Поддержка @killnet_support
Основатель @killmilk_rus
Резервный @killnet_mirror

Слава России Братья!

This is the end of the note. Below you will find a guide explaining how to remove Killnet ransomware. It also contains a translated version of the note.

What is Killnet ransomware?

Killnet is a new ransomware program; as of now, it’s been active only for a few days. Just like any other ransomware program, it encrypts all files on the computers it managed to infect. Once infected, the files receive .killnet file extension. A file named “finances.xlsx”, for example, would be renamed to “finances.xlsx.killnet”.
Still, this ransomware is somewhat unusual. Ransomware programs always leave a ransom note of some kind – usually a text file – to communicate their demands. The ransom note Killnet leaves (named “Ru.txt”), however, is unusually short: it only lists contact information of the hackers and nothing else. If you compare this behavior to any other ransomware program, you will see that they usually try to be a bit more verbose. The note is also in Russian, even though it would have been trivial to translate, considering its length. The image above contains the original, and here’s the translated version: READ MORE

 in Case of no answer:

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

What is Eking ransomware?

Eking is a ransomware program, called this way because it infects victims’ computers and holds their files out for ransom. This virus belongs to the VoidCrypt ransomware family (do not confuse it with Eking ransomware of the Phobos family).
“How did my files get stolen?”, you might ask. The answer is pretty simple. You might know that certain programs allow you to put a password on your files, making them inaccessible without that password. Ransomware programs do essentially the same, except they don’t ask you for password. Only the hacker behind the program knows it. The ransom involves selling the victim said password, usually referred to as “encryption key” as this is the technical term. Locking the files, meanwhile, is referred to as “encrypting” them.
Eking does more than just encrypt the files, though. To communicate the demands to the victim, it leaves a ransom note, named “INFO.txt”, on the Desktop. The full text is shown on the image above, but basically, it only contains contact information. The virus also renames the files it encrypts. A victim’s ID, the hacker’s contact information, and finally .eking file extension get added to the name of the file.
Hackers behind ransomware will often ignore the victims after they get paid, so we wrote a guide that explains how to remove Eking ransomware and decrypt .eking files without getting in contact with them.

How to remove Nury ransomware

What is Nury ransomware?

Nury is the name of a ransomware program that has been infecting computers recently. It belongs to the STOP/Djvu family of ransomware. All ransomware viruses generally act similarly, since they need to accomplish the same goals. They all encrypt victims’ files, obviously, and they all leave a ransom note to let the victim know how to get these files back. Though it is not technically necessary, pretty much all ransomware programs also change the extension of the files they encrypt to show that this was an intentional attack and not a computer glitch. STOP/Djvu viruses take this similarity to another level, though; they are all nearly indistinguishable from one another.
Nury in particular demands $980 from their victims, or $490 if paid within 72 hours of infection. This information is communicated to the victim via a ransom note entitled “_readme.txt” that gets placed on the Desktop. The image above shows the full text. This virus messes with file extensions too: the affected files receive .nury file extension.
Criminals, rather by definition, are not trustworthy individuals. They often ignore the victims once the money is paid. For this reason, the guide below will explain alternative ways to remove Nury ransomware and decrypt .nury files.

How to remove Nuis ransomware

What is Nuis ransomware?

Nuis is a new ransomware that belongs to the ubiquitous STOP/Djvu family. Thousands of STOP/Djvu strains are known to exist; although the encryption is done differently every time, the viruses themselves behave in an almost identical fashion. You can compare Nuis to Tury, another virus in this family, if you wish; you will be able to see just how similar they are for yourself.
Nuis itself is pretty average as far as ransomware programs go, though it doesn’t make it less harmful. It encrypts al files on your computer, and changes the extension to .nuis file extension. So “file.docx” would be renamed to “file.docx.nuis”. The virus leaves a ransom note too, of course. It is named “_readme.txt” and is located on the Desktop so it is hard to miss. The full text of the note can be read on the image above.
To summarize, though, the hackers want $980, and will give you a 50% discount for paying quickly. Don’t fall for it, though; it is unlikely that they will decrypt your files should you choose to pay. It is very common for hackers to just disappear once they get the money. One alternative would be our guide. Below, we will explain how to remove Nuis ransomware and decrypt .nuis files without any contact with the criminal.

How to remove Lumino_Ransom ransomware

Lumino_Ransom ransom note:

Hi !!!
Your file was encrypted by the ransomware: Lumino_Ransom, if you want to decrypt him, send me à mail with the user name pc at and I give to you the password for free ; that you need to enter in Lumino_decrypt ! On the other hand, you have no luck, it's the Hard's version of my Ransomware that I've created then...
Salut !!!
Vos fichier on été encypté par le ransomware: Lumino_ransom, si tu veux les décryptés, envoie moi un mail avec ton nom d'utilisateur à et je te donnerais le mot de passe gratuitement ; qu'il faudra entrer dans Lumino_decrypt ! Par contre, t'as pas de chance, c'est la version Hard mon Ransomware que j'ai crée donc...
The window/notepad gonna be closed automaticaly after 20 secondes !
La fenettre/le bloc note vas être fermée automatiquement après 20 secondes !

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

What is Lumino_Ransom ransomware?

Lumino_Ransom ransomware, also known as Lumino ransomware, as well as Lumine ransomware, is a malicious program which encrypts all files on computers it infects. This is done for the purposes of earning money; the encrypted files cannot be accessed, but this process is reversible. So the hackers who encrypted the files can promise to return them, but only if you pay their fee. Since this is similar to having your files stolen, this class of viruses was named ransomware.
Files encrypted with Lumino_Ransom receive .lumino_locked file extension. Their previous extension is not lost; it simply becomes a part of the file name. So, for example, a file named “pic.jpg” would be renamed to “pic.jpg.lumino_locked”.
All ransomware programs leave a ransom note, but Lumino_Ransom is unusual in this regard. Most ransom notes are simple text files, but in this case, it is a pop-up window with the note appearing gradually, as if typed. You may read the full text of the note on the image above. The ransomware also creates four hundred empty files named “LumineN”, where N is a number from 1 to 400. The purpose of this action is unknown.
This guide will explain how to remove Lumino_Ransom ransomware and decrypt .lumino_locked files without paying or even contacting the hackers.

How to remove Tuow ransomware

What is Tuow ransomware?

Tuow is a ransomware program – a program that encrypts your files and demands payment for their decryption. Encrypted files cannot be accessed in any way, so it’s kind of like having your files stolen and paying to get them back. This is why this type of viruses is called ransomware.
Tuow is a part of the STOP/Djvu ransomware family – a group of viruses similar to each other. Though in many cases these similarities are subtle and can be noticed only by cybersecurity researchers, all STOP/Djvu viruses are nearly identical. You can check out another such virus, Tuis, to see for yourself.
When encrypting files, Tuow also renames them; specifically, “.tuow” is added to the end of the file. This effectively gives all encrypted files .tuow file extension.
The virus also leaves a ransom note, a text file named “_readme.txt”. In this note, the hackers mention their contact information, as well as the price. As is always the case with STOP/Djvu ransomware, decryption costs $980, though the victim is offered a 50% discount if they pay within 3 days of infection. The full note can be read on the image above.
Paying the hackers is a bad idea, because nothing is stopping them from ignoring you once you’ve paid. Indeed, such incidents are very common. We have prepared a guide that will explain how to remove Tuow ransomware and decrypt .tuow files without any contact with the criminals.
