What is Vohuk ransomware?

Vohuk is a malware program more specifically categorized as ransomware. It utilizes cryptographic algorithms to encrypt all user files on the infected computer. These encrypted files cannot be accessed; to view or edit them, decryption is necessary. This is how this virus works, it offers to decrypt the files it encrypted. The hackers demand money for this procedure, of course.
Vohuk, just like every other ransomware program, leaves a ransom note. In this case, it is called “README.txt”. The full text of the note is available on the image above. That said, it doesn’t contain much information at all. The hackers don’t mention the price, only their e-mail addresses.
The virus also renames files while encrypting them. The name of each file is replaced with a string of random characters, while the extension is replaced with .Vohuk file extension.
While contacting the criminals and paying the ransom is an option, it is generally not a good one. Often, they will not decrypt your files even after payment. Instead they will disappear or try to get more money from you. The guide below will explain how to remove Vohuk ransomware and decrypt .Vohuk files without having to deal with the hackers.
