Decrypt NoobCrypt Ransomware

NoobCrypt ransomware is a win-locker, developed by hackers from Romania. The program’s ransom note discloses its origin. The message is an .html file, leading straight to the decryption page. It is quite detailed, listing all the information the victim needs to know. NoobCrypt ransomware notifies the user that his documents, photos, databases and other important files have been encrypted. It explains that he must pay a ransom to have them decrypted. The victim has a short amount of time to act, as the virus is set to start deleting files if he delays the payment. Instructions are provided on how to pay the ransom. NoobCrypt ransomware can lock a lot of common file types, including the following: .doc, .docx, .iff, .txt, .odt, .pdf, .html, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, .xlsx, .asp, .aspx, .reg, .wsc, .exif, .raw, .mdb, .db, .avi, .asf, .mp4, .wmv, .mkv, .mov, .flv, .mpg, .mpeg, .sys, .bdf, .dng, .ini, .bkp, .sql, .wps, .vb, .rtf, .pfx, .cdr, .pak, .php, .srf, .bin, .ps1, .bat, .mp3, .mid, .flac, .ogg, .wav, .wma, .sln, .xml, .lnk, .eps, .js, .sct, .crw, .csv, .ai, .zip, .rar, .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp, .png, .gif, .tif, .tiff, .psd, .qic, .bin, .cer, .dll, .dat, .m3u, .m4a, .arw, .eml, .exe and others. Paying the ransom is risky. The developers behind NoobCrypt ransomware are cyber criminals. This means the agreement you make with them would not be binding. They can decide to swindle you.

In most cases, NoobCrypt ransomware is distributed through spam e-mails. The nefarious program can hide behind an attachment from a bogus message. The file can be a text document, a scanned image, a spreadsheet, a compressed folder, an archive or something else. The sender will state that the attached file is an important piece of documentation. The topic of the e-mail can be regarding a letter, a delivery package, a bank deposit, a bill, a fine or a notice. Spammers can make a fake message appear genuine by copying the logo, contacts and correspondence format of a reliable entity. Be advised that accessing the host file would start the download and install of NoobCrypt ransomware on command prompt. The contemporary distribution technologies have made this possible. The process is initiated by Javascript codes and macros. You need to be cautious with your in-box messages. If you doubt the legitimacy of an e-mail, proof the sender’s background. Check whether or not he is associated to the entity he claims to be representing. Another way for NoobCrypt ransomware to enter your system is through a drive-by installation. This process works in a similar way to spam e-mails. Clicking on a corrupted website or a compromised link can infect your machine. You should be attentive and selective of your web sources.

NoobCrypt ransomware has a couple of flaws in its random note. This may be why the win-locker was given this name. The amount of the ransom has been corrected. The developers have made a new sign, but it is misplaced. The countdown timer is misplaced, as well. The original ransom was listed in New Zealand dollars (NZD). It used to be $250 NZD. This converts to about $180 USD. The ransom is now listed in United States dollars (USD). The cyber criminals have increased it to $299 USD. The amount needs to be paid in bitcoins (BTC). The BTC cryptocurrency is chosen by most win-lockers because it offers protection for the recipients. The hackers cannot be tracked down. NoobCrypt ransomware gives users 48 hours to pay the ransom for restoring all of their data. After this point, the malignant program begins to delete files at random. It will delete a few files every 2 hours. The win-locker erases a higher number of items each time. For unknown reasons, NoobCrypt ransomware instructs victims not to use the infected computer when conducting the transaction. People can use a laptop or a phone. The rogue program states that the only way to recover the encrypted files is by paying the ransom. It threatens to keep them permanently encrypted if you do not comply. You should never trust cyber criminals. There is no guarantee that paying would make them restore your data and delete the virus from your system.
