Why is All_Your_Documents.rar so difficult to detect?
Generally, all viruses are made in such a way so that they are as difficult to spot as possible. However, Ransomware takes this to a whole new level. The method used by viruses such as All_Your_Documents.rar to lock the user’s files is called encryption and what’s typical about encryption is that it is actually a legit and harmless process. In fact, a lot of software developers utilize this method to protect the files of their products. Obviously, most antivirus programs would not target an encryption process and would not regard it as a potential threat. This is highly exploited by hacker who use Ransomware. Since those viruses use encryption to lock the user’s files, they are able to remain undetected by any security software that the user might have on their PC. Even though attempts have been made towards developing security programs capable of distinguishing Ransomware encryption processes from encryption ran by legit programs, there’s still a lot to be done and so far no effective solution has been invented.
Even though it might seem like you are left with no way of spotting a Ransomware infection, we are here to tell you that it is technically possible to detect the infection yourself. The symptoms coming from All_Your_Documents.rar and other Ransomware viruses are caused by the encryption process itself. Since your files first need to be copied, with the copies being encrypted, and then the originals need to be deleted, this might give you a window of opportunity to manually spot the virus. The most notable symptom of Ransomware that is currently locking your files is sudden and unexpected CPU and RAM spikes that seem to be coming from nowhere or are caused by some shady process in your Task Manager. Another way you can detect All_Your_Documents.rar is if you notice that you have less hard drive space than usual – this might be caused by the copies that have been made during the encryption prior to the original files being deleted. In case you encounter any of the aforementioned symptoms, you are strongly advised to contact a specialist and in the meanwhile, keep your PC shut down.
If your files get encrypted
We won’t lie to you, nearly all of the computers attacked by Ransomware have their files locked by it before the user realizes what’s happening. This is surely an unnerving experience and many of you who have had their data encrypted by All_Your_Documents.rar are probably contemplating the option of paying the ransom. However, we strongly advise you to avoid going for that. There is nothing to guarantee you that you will receive the key that will unlock your files. You might send your money to the cyber-criminal and receive nothing in return. Therefore, a better idea would be to seek another way to tackle the issue. For starters, you can visit our Ransomware removal guide below this article once you finish reading here and see if it works for your specific situation.
