Ransomware is an advanced type of cyber threat that is mostly used for blackmailing purposes. There are thousands of Ransomware viruses out there and in this article we will be focusing on one of the more recent Ransomware examples – a cyber infection named Qweuirtksd.
Qweuirtksd is what is known as a cryptovirus Ransomware – it uses encryption to ensure that the targeted user wouldn’t be able to access their private files that are stored on the infected computer. The encryption used by Qweuirtksd is placed on each and every file which makes the targeted data inaccessible unless in cases where a special decryption key is applied. Naturally, the hackers who use Qweuirtksd to encrypt the files of their victims are the only ones who initially have their hands on the said key. Once all the data targeted by the Ransomware gets encrypted, a notification message or a notepad file gets generated on the infected machine – this message/notepad file contains detailed guidelines and instructions that the user is supposed to follow in order to conduct a ransom payment. The money needs to be send to the hackers behind Qweuirtksd who, in turn, promise to send back the decryption key once the money transfer has been completed. There are, however, numerous issues with that – sometimes the key might not work, sometimes the money might get sent elsewhere and it’s also possible that the hackers might simply decide not to give their users the key even after the payment has been issued. Due to that, it’s important to realize that the, if you could find a way around the payment, you should go for that. Below, we have tried to offer you some methods to help you with the removal of Qweuirtksd and the decryption/restoration of any files that it might have taken hostage so be sure to have a look at the following guide.
Removing the Ransomware is not enough
It’s also important to bear in mind that while our guide could help you with cleaning your PC and removing Qweuirtksd, the elimination of the virus does not equal restoration of your data and, sadly, there aren’t too many effective alternative methods that can be applied for the recovery of the sealed data. We have added a separate file-restoration guide to our removal guide but we cannot guarantee that each of you would be able to get their data back. That’s one of the worst things about Ransomware – no matter what course of action you choose to take, there are simply no guarantees for success. Still, if you use our guide, you’d at least not risk your money by offering them to some cyber criminals on the Internet.
Keeping your PC and data safe
For future data protection, we highly recommend you backup all your valuable data. Also, be sure to keep your PC safe by using a reliable antivirus program and by staying away from obscure and shady web content that could be potentially hazardous and infested with malware.
Some threats reinstall themselves if you don't delete their core files. We recommend downloading SpyHunter to remove harmful programs for you. This may save you hours and ensure you don't harm your system by deleting the wrong files.
