This page aims to help you remove the Moka Virus for free. Our instructions also cover how any .Moka file can be recovered.
As most of you probably already know, the Ransomware file-encryption viruses are presently one of the most common and most problematic computer threats, and the worst part about them is that releasing the files that they lock in the infected machine may not always be fully possible. Still, with the right information and guidance, a Ransomware victim should be able to make the best out of such a situation and minimize the harm caused by the Ransomware attack.
In this particular article, our focus will be a cryptovirus known as Moka – this new Ransomware infection is currently on the loose and the number of users attacked by it is rapidly going up. Our goal here is to give our readers important and useful information about the infection – how it functions, what its channels of distribution are and what can be done to prevent future attacks by it. Also, for the ones of you who have Moka in their computer and their files have already been encrypted by the nasty Ransomware, we have prepared a set of removal instructions that will aid you with the elimination of the malware. After the threat is removed, our readers could try out the alternative file-recovery suggestions that they will find on our site.
The .Moka Virus
The file-encryption method is the process used by threats like this one – once they infiltrate the computers of their victims, they run a data-encryption process which locks all of the users’ files, making them inaccessible to anyone who tries to open them without a special decryption key. Of course, the hackers readily offer that key to their victims, but only provided that the latter pay a ransom. Usually, the sum of the ransom ranges from a couple of hundred to couple of thousand dollars, depending on who or what the target is. Paying, however, may not be the brightest of ideas because of the possibility of not getting the promised decryption key even after paying the money. This is why the alternative approach is the one we would advise you to go for – remove the infection with the help of our instructions and then try some of the possible file recovery alternatives.
.Moka file encryption
We won’t lie to you – releasing the locked files without the proper decryption key that is held by the hackers may not always be an option, especially if the virus is a new one such as Moka. Still, you can give a try to some of the alternative potential solutions that you will find on our site – they may or may not work depending on the specific situation.
Something many users forget is to check their other devices for any accidental file backups – if you have safe copies of your important data on other devices, you can easily copy them back on your computer after the Ransomware is removed. This leads us to the importance of regularly backing up your important data – be sure to always do that in the future and you should have no problems with any Ransomware cryptoviruses.
Some threats reinstall themselves if you don't delete their core files. We recommend downloading SpyHunter to remove harmful programs for you. This may save you hours and ensure you don't harm your system by deleting the wrong files.
