Although this ransomware can be removed from an infected device, restoring files or data that have been encrypted is very difficult.

Unless the victim pays the ransom, has stored the data elsewhere, or the criminal makes a mistake.

Apart from that, it is very unlikely that encrypted data can be recovered.

How to Respond to a Ransomware Attack?

Microsoft explains that there are several options for dealing with and removing ransomware from infected devices.

  • Be Careful When Paying Ransom

While many victims will feel pressure to pay a ransom to obtain encryption keys, there is no guarantee that the perpetrator will keep their promise and restore access to data.

Mostly, security experts and law enforcement agencies urge victims of ransomware attacks not to pay the ransom.

This is because it will make the victim vulnerable to other attacks in the future, and instead actively support cybercrime.

It's a good idea to immediately isolate the data that has been compromised, so as to prevent the ransomware from spreading to other areas of the network.

Immediately report yourself if you are a victim of ransomware to the authorities. Even though it will not solve the problem, at least this way the authorities can track and monitor attacks.
