Hey, my system has been infected with a file-encrypting virus known as DUMP Ransomware. It can encrypt my important files and lock it. I can’t access my own file and this ransomware virus can slow down my system. I just want my file back. Please help me. Thanks.
DUMP Ransomware is the dangerous crypto-virus that can be identified under ransomware category. It is mainly created by cyber hacker with the main purpose to extort money from innocent users. Cyber security researchers noted that it is the variant of HidenTear Project. Once it enters into the PC, it will scan the entire system and encrypt your various file or data and demand ransom for its decryption key. It uses the strong encryption algorithm to encrypt the file and append the file name as .DUMP extension. After encryption, it will create a ransom note and put it in each folder containing encrypted files and payment method to buy decryption key. According to the ransom note, it contains a short message about encrypted files and payment method to buy decryption key.
Cyber crooks demand ransom in the form of Bitcoins and encourage users to buy it from designated wallet address. The cost of the decryption key is currently unknown. They can also warn users that if you not make payment in given time and want to remove this virus then you will permanently lose your file. After proliferation, DUMP Ransomware makes new registry entries in Window Registry to achieve high-level persistence that can allow other malware threats into the system. It can also block Window Firewall and other security tools to be undetected. Through this ransomware virus, cyber criminals monitor your online activities and steal your privacy for misuse.
DUMP Ransomware is mainly spread via spam email attachments, via exploit kits, Peer-to-peer sharing of the network, freeware and shareware downloads, visiting suspicious sites like porn and torrent sites and much more. It is strongly recommended that never make payment to the cyber crooks. It is not sure that you will successfully receive decryption key after making payment. Therefore, it is hardly advised you to remove DUMP Ransomware from the PC immediately.
