Bmic Bmic is a piece of malware that causes harm by keeping users from accessing their own digital files. Bmic is recognized as a ransomware cryptovirus since it applies encryption to user files and demands a ransom for their decryption key. The key feature of this new infection is its ability to remain unnoticed while it applies its complex encryption code to the files that are of greatest value for the victim. Bmic normally shows no visible symptoms that can give its activity away and users who aren\u2019t very observant may not notice anything until the file-encryption process completes and a ransom note appears on their screen. This gives the malware the weapon of surprise and allows it to set its victims into panic by giving them a short deadline to react. As typical ransomware, the ultimate goal of Bmic is to scare its victims into paying a ransom for the decryption key of their sealed files. The criminals who are behind this infection provide payment instructions and promise that if their demands are fulfilled, they will send the file-decryption key that corresponds to the Bmic encryption. Trusting the promises made by the same criminals who are responsible for the encryption of your personal data, however, isn\u2019t wise at all. The hackers are only behind your money and once they get it, they typically disappear without sending a file-recovery solution or find a new way to extort more money from their victims. This gives you a good reason to refuse to pay them whatever, and explore other instructions that may help you recover your data and remove the ransomware that has compromised your computer. The Bmic virus The Bmic virus is a piece of malware that targets specific files with the idea to make them inaccessible. The Bmic virus applies a complex encryption code to the targeted files and tells its victim to pay a ransom to recover them. In general, the ransomware\u2019s attack is only critical for those users who keep valuable information on their computer and have no backups of it. In this case, they really are threatened to lose access to the encrypted files unless they agree to pay the ransom or find an alternative solution that can help them recover their data without sending money to the cyber criminals. Users who don\u2019t have too important files on their machines or have backup sources from where they can access the information they need, however, are unlikely to face the catastrophic effects of the Bmic file encryption. \u00a0All they have to do is remove the ransomware with the help of reliable security software or manual removal instructions and copy their unencrypted files back to the clean computer. The Bmic file decryption The Bmic file decryption is a file-recovery process that converts the encrypted files to their normal state. The activation of the Bmic file decryption process requires the use of a special decryption key that is unique for every device infected by the Ransomware virus. The ransom demanded for this decryption key, however, can be quite high and there is no guarantee that the hackers who keep it will really send it to you. That\u2019s why our recommendation is to keep your money and explore other options that may potentially help you recover your files for free, as well as some legitimate methods for ransomware recovery approved by security professionals. SUMMARY: Name Bmic Type Ransomware Danger Level High (Ransomware is by far the worst threat you can encounter) Symptoms Very few and unnoticeable ones before the ransom notification comes up. Distribution Method From fake ads and fake system requests to spam emails and contagious web pages. Data Recovery Tool Not Available Detection Tool https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v4U2kPLpNgyI Bmic Virus Removal Some of the steps will likely require you to exit the page. Bookmark it for later reference. Reboot in Safe Mode (use this guide if you don't know how to do it). WARNING! READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING! Press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC at the same time and go to the Processes Tab. Try to determine which processes are dangerous. Right click on each of them and select Open File Location. Then scan the files with our free online virus scanner: After you open their folder, end the processes that are infected, then delete their folders. Note: If you are sure something is part of the infection - delete it, even if the scanner doesn't flag it. No anti-virus program can detect all infections. Hold the Start Key and R - copy + paste the following and click OK: notepad %windir%\/system32\/Drivers\/etc\/hosts A new file will open. If you are hacked, there will be a bunch of other IPs connected to you at the bottom. Look at the image below: If there are suspicious IPs below "Localhost" - write to us in the comments. Type msconfig in the search field and hit enter. A window will pop-up: Go in Startup ---> Uncheck entries that have "Unknown" as Manufacturer. Please note that ransomware may even include a fake Manufacturer name to its process. Make sure you check out every process here is legitimate. Type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter. Once inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus's Name. Search for the ransomware in your registries and delete the entries. Be extremely careful - you can damage your system if you delete entries not related to the ransomware. Type each of the following in the Windows Search Field: %AppData% %LocalAppData% %ProgramData% %WinDir% %Temp% Delete everything in Temp. The rest just check out for anything recently added.
