Rezm is a data-targeting virus that is designed as a blackmailing tool. PC infections the likes of Rezm are referred to as Ransomware because their creators use them to extort money from their victims through blackmailing, using the locked files as leverage.
If your system has been infected by Rezm and you have lost access to most or all of your files, then you need to know what you can do to improve the situation and deal with this malware in the best way possible.
One of the first things we need to mention here is that the Ransomware itself will probably not damage anything in the computer. It data-encrypts your files to make them unrecognizable to all of your programs but this isn’t a damaging process and the targeted files remain intact even after they have been locked. What this means is your computer won’t get harmed by the virus and if there aren’t any highly valuable files in your hard-drives, nothing too important would get lost. Therefore, you wouldn’t need to worry about paying the ransom sum or finding an alternative way of restoring your data. All you’d need to do is follow our removal instructions from down below and with their help remove the Ransomware so it won’t bother you in the future.
However, most instances of Ransomware infections do indeed lead to loss of important files, in which case the users are forced to choose between paying the ransom or opting for the alternatives. In the guide you’ll find on this page, you will learn about some of those alternatives and how they may help you restore some of your data.
The Rezm virus
The Rezm virus is a malicious virus program that infects Windows PCs and steals the access to the files stored on them. To fight the Rezm virus, you will first need to remove the threat and then find a way to recover the locked files.
Some users do opt for the payment and send their money to the criminals behind the Ransomware virus. This, however, is a rather risky option and the reason is that you don’t get any guarantees about what would happen to your files afterwards.
The Rezm file encryption
The Rezm file encryption is a secret code that makes the files in the attacked computer unrecognizable to any program the user has. The Rezm file encryption requires a key that matches the code applied to the files in order to release the files.
The matching key for their computer is offered to each user attacked by the Ransomware. This key is the object of the ransom payment and if you don’t pay for it, it won’t get sent to you. As we mentioned already, even if you pay, you may still not obtain the matching key. However, if you remove the infection and then opt for the possible alternatives we will show you, you may still get to recover some of your data without needing to pay anything to the hackers.
