Remove Bomber ransomware

What is ransomware

Bomber ransomware ransomware is a piece of malicious software that will encode your files. Depending on what type of ransomware it is, you might end up permanently losing access to your data. What’s worse is that it is very easy to get the threat. Opening spam email attachments, pressing on infected ads and fake downloads are the most common reasons why file encoding malware can infect. After the encryption process is complete, it will request you to pay a certain amount of money for a decryptor. Depending on what kind of file encoding malware has infiltrated your device, the money requested will differ. Complying with the demands is not something we advise doing, so think through all scenarios. Take into consideration that these are cyber crooks you are dealing with and they might not give you anything in exchange for the payment. There are many accounts of users getting nothing after giving into with the demands. This kind of thing may happen again or something could happen to your computer, so would it not be better to invest the requested money into some kind of backup option. From USBs to cloud storage, there are plenty of backup options out there, you simply need to select the one best suiting your needs. And if by accident you do have backup, simply terminate Bomber ransomware before you recover data. It’s important that you prepare for these types of situations because another similar infection is probably going to occur again at some point. If you want your device to be malware-free, it’s vital to learn about malicious software and how it could infiltrate your machine.

Ransomware distribution methods

Data encrypting malicious software typically uses quite basic methods for distribution, such as through suspicious downloads, malicious advertisements and corrupted email attachments. Only seldom does data encoding malware use more elaborate methods.

It’s possible you opened an infected email attachment, which is what allowed the file encrypting malware to enter. Criminals attach an infected file to an email, which gets sent to many people. You may usually find those emails in spam but some users believe they are credible and transfer them to the inbox, thinking it’s credible. In addition to grammatical mistakes, if the sender, who definitely knows your name, uses greetings like Dear User/Customer/Member and strongly encourages you to open the attachment, it might be a sign that the email isn’t what it appears. To explain, if someone whose attachment ought to be opened sends you an email, they would would know your name and would not use common greetings, and you would not have to search for the email in spam. You are likely to come across company names like Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as a familiar name would make the email look more authentic. Infected advertisements and bogus downloads may also lead to an infection. Certain advertisements might be hiding malware, so it’s best if you refrain from clicking on them when visiting suspicious reputation sites. You may have also downloaded the data encrypting malicious program concealed as something else on an untrustworthy download platform, which is why you should stick to legitimate ones. Avoid downloading anything from advertisements, as they aren’t good sources. Programs commonly update automatically, but if manual update was necessary, you would get a notification through the program, not the browser.

What happened to your files?

A contamination may result in your data being permanently encoded, which is why it’s considered to be such a damaging infection. And the encryption process is very quick, it is only a matter of minutes, if not seconds, for all files you think are important to be locked. The file extension added to files that have been encoded makes it very obvious what happened, and it usually indicates the name of the file encoding malicious program. Ransomware will use strong encryption algorithms, which aren’t always possible to break. When encryption is complete, you’ll get a ransom note, which will attempt to explain to you how you should proceed. You’ll be offered a way to decrypt files using a decryption utility which you can purchase from them, but researchers don’t advise doing that. Paying does not necessarily mean file decryption because hackers could just take your money, leaving your files encrypted. Your money would also support their future file encrypting malicious software activity. The easy money is regularly attracting more and more people to the business, which is thought to have made $1 billion in 2016. We would advise investing in some type of backup, which would store copies of your files in case something happened to the original. And you would not be risking losing your data if this type of infection hijacked your computer again. We would advise you ignore the requests, and if the infection is still inside on your system, eliminate Bomber ransomware, for which you’ll see instructions below. These kinds infections can be avoided, if you know how they spread, so try to familiarize with its distribution methods, at least the basics.

Bomber ransomware termination

Those tools are made to identify and remove Bomber ransomware, as well as similar infections. You can find instructions to help you, if you aren’t sure where to start. In case it was not clear, anti-malware will merely get rid of the infection, it will not aid with file recovery. However, if the data encoding malware is decryptable, a free decryptor might be released by malware specialists.
