aes_ni_0day Ransomware is a computer virus that falls under the category of Ransomware and it is able to lock the personal files of the user by using a sophisticated encryption code. Should the malware manage to encrypt the files, it would then proceed to blackmail its victim into paying a ransom in exchange for the key that can unlock the user’s data. Currently, this type of virus is one of the most problematic and widely spread kinds of malware and each user should have good understanding of how Ransomware works, how it gets distributed, what symptoms it can potentially trigger and how it can be dealt with, should it affect one’s computer. In the following paragraphs, we will attempt to explain all of this as well as provide our readers with useful tips and guidelines to help them protect their files against any potential attacks by aes_ni_0day Ransomware or other similar viruses.

Types of Ransomware

There are a couple of different types of Ransomware viruses and though they all have blackmail as their main purpose, the way that they function is different. The first main type of Ransomware actually tries to block the user’s access to their PC by covering it’s screen with a big image/banner that cannot be removed through any regular means (no X button, Alt+F4 doesn’t work, etc.). Since the said image/banner would hide everything behind it including folders, programs, the Start Menu and even the Task Manager, the user would not be able to interact with their PC during that time. The idea is that when the ransom is paid, the pesky banner would go away and the access to the computer would be restored. The good news is that if you get attacked by this type of Ransomware and you manage to get rid of the virus, the displayed image would go away without the need to pay anything. Down below we have a guide that might help users remove Ransomware without paying anything, so we advise you to go there if your machine has been invaded by one such virus.

The other major kind of Ransomware type are the so-called cryptoviruses. This is also what aes_ni_0day Ransomware is. Instead of locking your whole PC, as we already mentioned, this type of virus uses encryption to deny you access to your personal data. The issue with that is the fact that even after the malicious program is removed, the files would remain encrypted. In our removal guide we have also added instructions on how one can potentially restore their data so that it is once again accessible. However, we ought to mention that this might not always work and it oftentimes depends on the specific situation the user is in.

Another variation of Ransomware also known as Leakware is when the virus threatens to make the users’ files available instead of making them inaccessible to the user. However, those attacks are less common and normally target only persons/companies that have sensitive data on their PC’s, whereas the previous two forms of Ransomware are known to commonly attack regular users as well.

Symptoms and detection

A big problem with most newer Ransomware viruses is the fact that the majority of antivirus programs are unable to spot the threat until it is too late. The reason for that usually lies within the fact that in contrast to most other types of malware, a typical Ransomware virus, at least initially, would not cause any actual harm or execute any tasks that are damaging to the PC’s system or the files that are stored on the hard drive. Due to this, malicious programs like aes_ni_0day Ransomware are able to remain under the radar of most conventional antivirus scanners until the time has come for them to reveal themselves and demand the ransom payment. Another important thing to mention is that Ransomware normally triggers little to no symptoms. Some signs of infection that could be noticed are a slow-down of the computer due to big RAM and CPU spikes as well as temporarily decreased HDD space; however, the encryption process oftentimes happens way too quickly for the user to have any time to counteract it. Still, if you somehow manage to spot the virus or suspect that your machine might have been attacked by Ransomware, be sure to immediately shut down your PC and seek professional aid.

Our advice

As a conclusion to our article on aes_ni_0day Ransomware, we have listed a few important tips that you should refer to in the future if you want your computer to be safer and your files less likely to be encrypted by some nasty Ransomware virus.

  • Stay safe on the Internet and keep away from sites that can represent potential security hazards. If a website looks sketchy, leave it without further exploring its pages.
  • If you receive a suspicious-looking message sent to your e-mail or any of your social network profiles that has a file attachment or an obscure web-link, do not click on the file/link until you make sure that it is safe to do so. If you cannot be certain that the message’s contents are safe, be sure to delete it.
  • Though an antivirus might not be very effective against newer Ransomware, it can still provide invaluable protection against Trojan horses – a type of malware commonly used to distribute viruses like aes_ni_0day Ransomware.
  • Having a back-up of your important files is an essential precaution when it comes to fighting Ransomware. If you haven’t backed up your personal data yet, we advise you to do it ASAP.
  • Lastly, know that hackers, who use Ransomware, heavily rely on intimidation and making their victims pay the ransom as soon as they realize that their files have been locked. We strongly advise against opting for that since you can never know if you will actually get the code that can unlock your data. Instead, you should give our guide a try and see if it helps you resolve the issue.
