A lot of malicious programs and malware viruses out there tend to targeted some important component of your system and damage it or spy on your virtual activities while they are inside your PC. However, one of the nastiest and most problematic kinds of PC malware does neither of those things. It typically doesn’t cause any damage to anything inside your computer and it also isn’t normally used for espionage purposes. The virus type we are referring to here is the so-called Ransomware – a highly dangerous and problematic malware category that is primarily used for the purposes of money extortion through blackmailing. Such viruses are typically programmed to either make your computer’s screen inaccessible by locking it via a huge, screen-wide banner or to target your personal data files and encrypt them which renders them inaccessible. In either case, the victim is supposed to pay a set amount of money as a ransom or else, the PC screen or the encrypted files would remain locked for good.

How to Decrypt Nozelesn files

Data-encryption

Nozelesn in particular belongs to the cryptovirus Ransomware subcategory – the type of Ransomware that targets the user’s data files and encrypts them in order to make them inaccessible. This means that if you currently have Nozelesn on your machine, you are probably not able to access most of your personal documents that have been stored on your machine’s HDD. Unfortunately, this is the more dangerous and difficult to deal with Ransomware subcategory because even if you manage to remove the cryptovirus, it’s infection is still likely to remain on your files keeping them inaccessible. In the guide down below, there’s a separate section with a couple of methods that might help you recover your data but we cannot promise you that they’d always work. Still, giving our guide a go is a good starting point towards liberating your data from the malware’s grasp.

Some of you might be wondering if it’s actually better to simply pay the requested ransom. Well, in the end it is up to you what course of action you are going to take but we ought to warn you that even if you pay, you can never be sure that your files will get restored. The hackers typically promise that they will send you the decryption key for your sealed files if you carry out the ransom transaction but there are many instances where no such key was send to users who have agreed to make the payment and who have send their money to the cyber criminals. In such cases, most cyber-security researches advice to only make the payment if all other alternatives have failed to retrieve the data and only if the said data is really that important for you – in all other cases, it is advisable to not make the payment. We subscribe to this piece of advice.

Making sure to keep your PC secure

There are many Ransomware distribution techniques – such viruses can get distributed through spam e-mail attachments, spam Facebook messages with shady links, illegal and pirated software installers, illegal torrents, fake ads and update requests coming from the Internet, etc. It is also possible that if you have a Trojan on your PC it might download a Ransomware inside the infected system. There are many other possible ways of spreading infections like Nozelesn but you get the general idea. To ensure that your data and PC stay safe, be sure that you avoid interaction with any Internet content that doesn’t seem to be reliable or legal and also make sure to get yourself a good antivirus program to help you detect incoming threats so that you can stop them before they have had the chance to carry out their insidious agendas.
