.Domn is a dangerous computer threat categorized as a Ransomware cryptovirus. If .Domn is in your computer, you won’t be able to open your files, and you’d be asked to pay a ransom for their release.
This is how pretty much all Ransomware cryptovirus infections operate – once they infiltrate a given computer, they locate the user files that belong to certain commonly used file formats, and then go on to lock up those files using data-encryption. What this encryption does is it makes the targeted pieces of data inaccessible to anyone who tries to open them without the corresponding decryption key. Without that key, an encrypted file cannot be opened, or modified in any way, or by any program. The corresponding key is kept on the servers of the hackers behind the Ransomware, and their goal is to blackmail their victims for the release of the sealed files. The user is told to pay a certain amount of money, and promised that they would receive the needed access key as soon as the payment gets completed. We understand that many victims of Ransomware may not be able to afford such a payment, which is why it is important to have other methods of dealing with this threat at hand. Also, it should be mentioned that even if you can pay the ransom, doing so isn’t really an advisable course of action, as you may simply waste the money without getting anything helpful from the hackers.
