.Oonn is a ransomware virus that can make all personal information stored on your computer inaccessible. .Oonn is supposed to chase you for a ransom payment that you are expected to pay to regain access to your encrypted files.
Viruses of the ransomware type like .Oonn, .Nile and Masodas use the method of file encryption to restrict access to certain information stored on the infected computer, so that the victims are unable to access it. According to the criminals behind the infection, the only way to regain access is by paying a certain sum of money as a ransom for a specially generated decryption key that is in the hands of the hackers. The criminals typically place a pop-up notification or a text file on the screen of the attacked computer where they provide instructions for the payment and a deadline. The message says you have to pay a fixed amount of money or you will never get the decryption key for your locked info. Normally, the payment is demanded in Bitcoins which is a cryptocurrency that is difficult to trace and helps the hackers hide their true identities from the authorities.
Sadly, there is no assurance that you will obtain the promised key even after you pay the ransom amount, that’s why it is best not to send your money right away but explore some alternative solutions that could help you remove .Oonn and do something about your encrypted files.
The .Oonn virus
The .Oonn virus is a malicious piece of software that is used for an extortion scheme. The .Oonn virus is designed to apply a powerful encryption to commonly used digital files and to demand a ransom payment for providing the victims with a decryption key.
If the victim refuses to pay, they are in danger of never accessing or using their files again. But even if you pay the ransom, as we mentioned in the paragraph above, this doesn’t guarantee that you will be given the correct decryption key for your files. The hackers who keep it may decide to ask for more money from you, or they may simply vanish with the money you sent without providing you with any decryption solution. It is therefore almost always best to not make the ransom payment or at least keep it as a very last resort and concentrate first on the possible options that do not require transferring money to cyber criminals who want to put you under pressure.
The .Oonn file decryption
The .Oonn file decryption is a method of file recovery that requires you to use the decryption key generated by the ransomware to regain access to your information. The only way to obtain the .Oonn file decryption key is to pay ransom to the hackers but sometimes, alternative solutions may also be available.
In the removal guide below we provide instructions on how to remove .Oonn which is an essential step if you are planning to use your computer after the ransomware attack. Once the virus is removed, this prevents it from encrypting new files or locking the files that you eventually will recover. In the second section of the guide you will find some file-restoration suggestions that may be worth a try. You should check them out to see if any of them can help you avoid the ransom payment.
