What is the Ndarod Virus

The Ndarod Virus will leave a _readme.txt file with instructions.

Computer threats like Ndarod, BopadorLapoi are malicious programs that belong to the infamous Ransomware cryptovirus category. Those are among the sneakiest and most covert forms of malware and because of that, they are also highly effective in their malicious activities. The gist of what a typical cryptovirus does is actually pretty straightforward. The goal of such a virus is to blackmail you. In order to do that, the cryptovirus would lock up your files through encryption, making you unable to open them no matter what software you try to use for that purpose. You have some important text document files or spreadsheets for a work or for a school project? If a cryptovirus has gotten to them, you’d no longer be able to open them on any machine if you do not have a special decryption key – a key that only the hackers behind the malware possess. And, of course, it is this key that you’d need to pay a ransom for. If you pay the money that the hackers want from you, you are promised to receive the key that corresponds to the encryption applied on your files. It should go without saying, however, that there isn’t really a way to be sure if sending the money would undoubtedly result in your receiving the decryption key. You see, this is the problem with this course of action – you just have no way of trusting the hackers. It doesn’t matter how convincing they may seem in their promises to send you the key, you still can’t be sure if they’d actually go through with it upon receiving your money. This, in turn, makes it a rather risky move of you to send your money to such criminals. You may or may not get what you need to restore your files but in either way, as soon as your money is sent to the blackmailers, that money is gone and there is nothing that can be done to retrieve it if no key gets sent to you or if the key that you receive doesn’t work.

Unfortunately, with new cryptoviruses like Ndarod, the options you may have tend to be very limited. The first thing we’d advise you to do is remove the Ransomware itself. You can do that by following the manual steps you will see in the guide below or by using the linked professional malware-removal tool. Usually, it’s best if you combine the two methods for the best results.

What to do with .ndarod files

The ransomware will encrypt your files  and add .ndarod extension to them.

Now, with the infection gone, you can give a try to the suggested recovery methods for your data in our second part of the guide. Bear in mind, however, that we can’t guarantee the restoration of the data – oftentimes the newer cryptoviruses are too advanced for any conventional data-restoration methods to work effectively. Still, trying won’t hurt and may still get you some of your files back without the need to spend money in the process.
