The Prodecryptor Ransomware is a threat that once inside a computer, will encrypt the computer users' files, which will provide its perpetrators with an argument to demand a ransom payment if its victims want their files back. The propagation method used by the Prodecryptor Ransomware is not different from the countless ransomware threats that are present on the Internet; bad torrents, corrupted websites and email attachments, and other misleading techniques. To display its ransom message, the Prodecryptor Ransomware uses a pop-up window containing a text file named 'ReadME-Prodecryptor@gmail.com.txt,' which has the following, short message:
'All your files have been encrypted due to security problem with your PC. if you want to restore them, write us to the E-mail Prodecryptor@gmail.com
You have ti pay for decryption in Bitcoins. The price depend on how fast your write us. After payment we will send you the decryption tool that will decrypt all your files.'
As we can see on the message, there's no ransom amount. It will depends on the time the computer user will take to contact them via the email address Prodecryptor@gmail.com. However, the right response to ransomware attacks is to ignore the instructions provided by the criminals and look for alternative recovery methods.
