Digital data is one of the most valuable modern \u201ccurrencies\u201d and it is essential that yours stays well protected considering how often this is the main target of the creators of malware. The Ransomware cryptoviruses are a prime example of a malware family that is solely focused on targeting the data of its victims and using it as a means of money extortion. The way all of this happens is actually rather simply - instead of harming the computer system or corrupting the files in it, a Ransomware cryptovirus uses the harmless process known as data-encryption to make its victim\u2019s files inaccessible to anyone who doesn\u2019t have the unique access key that can decrypt the locked files. Of course, the malware victim is required to pay for that key - if the ransom is paid, the decryption key gets sent to the user and they become able to open their files or at least that is what the hackers would have you believe. .Heroset is one of the many representatives of this malware category - it is a new piece of malware and recently there have been many reports about users that have had their system infiltrated by it and their files taken hostage. Ransomware detection - why detecting a cryptovirus is difficult One of the major issues we can point out regarding cryptoviruses like .Heroset,\u00a0.Pidon\u00a0,\u00a0.Davda\u00a0.Lanset\u00a0 is that their detection and timely removal is rather unlikely - they don\u2019t really show any obvious symptoms and even the most vigilant of users are typically not able to spot such an infection before it\u2019s too late. What\u2019s even worse, however, is that even if you have a strong and reliable antivirus in your computer, this may still not help with the detection of an ongoing Ransomware infection. As we said, the encryption process that is the basis of any cryptovirus\u2019 functionality is not really a harmful one. It locks the files but doesn\u2019t damage them in any way and it also doesn\u2019t really affect the system in a negative way. Most antivirus programs aren\u2019t suited to detect such processes and flag them as hazardous and that is what allows .Heroset and other similar threats to fulfil their tasks without getting intercepted. Over time, many antivirus vendors have started including specialized anti-ransomware features in their products but even such features may not work perfectly and may still fail to spot some of the more advanced and newer versions of Ransomware - ones like .Heroset, for example. What can one do once their files have gotten encrypted? This is a tough question to answer - an obvious solution to some may be the ransom -payment but you must remember that paying the money and getting the decryption key are not always one and the same thing. After all, who\u2019s to guarantee that the hackers would actually keep their promises and send you the key? And who\u2019s to guarantee that they do actually have such a key? Alternatively, you can try the guide below - it should help you remove .Heroset and there are also some suggestions related to file recovery that do not involve paying the ransom. We can\u2019t, however, promise you that those suggestions would always work so keep that in mind. SUMMARY: Name .Heroset Type Ransomware Danger Level High\u00a0(Ransomware is\u00a0by far the worst threat you can encounter) Symptoms Due to the specific way encryption processes work, the Ransomware temporarily requires some free disk space while locking-up your data which, in theory, may help you notice its presence before its too late.
