The reason why malware of this type is considered to be so harmful is because it can potentially deprive you of access to vital information that’s been stored on your computer or even your whole network of computers. Now imagine what that could mean for a private person, and picture what it could do to a large company or organization. One infection of this type could translate to millions in losses.

So for this reason it’s important to treat this attack with caution. If the hackers have already threatened you to pay ransom before a certain deadline, don’t hurry to react immediately. First, it is of crucial importance to remove Nppp from your system, so it cannot do any further harm henceforth. And for that there is a step-by-step removal guide located on this page, just below the current post. Then once you have completed this step, you can proceed to take action towards the restoration of your files.

You may of course choose to pay the ransom money, and that is up to you entirely. But know that not even this will 100% guarantee that the encrtyped data will become usable again. In the second part of the said guide, we have also included tips on how you can try to restore you data using other means. So if you’re interested, be sure to check those out.

The Nppp virus

The Nppp virus a plague of epic proportions and, unfortunately, only one of billions of existing variants out there. This makes it vital to prevent instances like the Nppp virus attacks, as opposed to looking for ways to deal with the aftermath.

And in order to be able to do that, you need to know how ransomware like this prefers to ‘travel’. And typically this is by means of spam messages. You can receive these via email, through instant messaging platforms or virtually any other possibility there is to transfer digital messages. This is why it’s icredibly important to look out for attached files or enclosed links that the sender it trying to get you to open under whatever pretext.

But in addition to the above, the most fool-proof way to protect your most vital files is by creating copies of them and storing them on a separate drive or cloud service. That way even in the event of ransomware attack, the hackers will have no leverage.

The Nppp file encryption

The Nppp file encryption is highly complex and uses a double-part key for its execution. The Nppp file encryption makes sure that you are deprived of access to the affected files.

This is also the reason why most antivirus software won’t even detect ransomware infections. Encryption is such a commonplace occurrence that is used in our everyday lives constantly, as a way to protect data. And this has unfortunately become a very big advantage for the cybercriminals that develop these malicious pieces of software.
