.Moresa Virus

This page aims to help you remove .Moresa Virus for free. Our instructions also cover how any .Moresa file can be recovered.

A very nasty computer infection named .Moresa File Virus has been spreading around the wеb recently and if you are not careful or you don’t have reliable PC protection, you may accidentally land it on your machine. It is best if you never come across this threat because it belongs to the infamous Ransomware category and can secretly encrypt all your personal files and ask you to pay a ransom to decrypt them. .Moresa may have the ability to lock-up and replace the file extensions of audios, videos, images, documents, archives and other commonly used data and thus make those files inaccessible for an indefinite period of time. Then, the threat may generate a ransom-demanding notification on your screen and may ask you to pay a certain amount of money in exchange for a special key which is supposed to decrypt the locked information.

In order to infect as many computers as possible, the creators of .Moresa use various sophisticated methods of spreading their infection. For instance, they may bundle the harmful payload in different software packages, fake ads, spam messages, malicious email attachments, torrents and phishing pages or sneak it inside the PC with the help of a Trojan Horse.

Similarly to other cryptoviruses, the one that we are focusing on here is based on a very complex encryption algorithm which makes the targeted files unrecognizable to any program. No matter what they may try, the victims cannot open or use the files and, on top of that, are blackmailed to pay a ransom if they ever want to regain their access.

The ransom-demanding notification usually gives a short deadline within which the victims should release the payment. Those who agree to transfer the required ransom are promised to receive the decryption key necessary for the reversal of the secret encryption algorithm.

It is important to warn you, though, that such a “special key” may not even exist. The creators of the Ransomware may simply be lying to you in order to get your money. That’s why fulfilling their ransom demands is not advisable and may not help you remove .Moresa or get any of your data back.

In fact, no matter what the crooks tell you, you should know that the best way to recover your files in case of a Ransomware attack is to use your personal external backup copies. If you don’t have a backup copy of your data, then you may want to try some alternative recovery methods such as the ones we provide in the removal guide below. Unfortunately, even they may not work flawlessly in all cases and that’s why we cannot tell you how much data you will be able to recover with their help. If you still decide to give them a try, however, we encourage you to first remove .Moresa with the help of the instructions in the removal guide and then proceed to the file-restoration suggestions because if the Ransomware is active on your computer, it may encrypt every file you manage to recover, including the ones stored in  the backup sources that you connect.
