'!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware Description

Cybersecurity experts have spotted a new ransomware threat recently. It was given the name '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware, and upon further investigation, it appears to be a variant of the RotorCrypt Ransomware. It is not known with 100% certainty what the propagation method employed by the authors of the '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware is, but it is likely that the cybercriminals may be using spam email campaigns containing an infected attachment, corrupted pirated content, and bogus software updates to spread their threatening creation. Once the '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware infiltrates a PC it begins its attack by performing a scan. The goal of the scan is to locate the files, which the '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware was programmed to encrypt.

Often, to ensure greater damage, creators of ransomware make sure that their file-encrypting Trojans are capable of encrypting most of the common file types like .jpeg, .png, .mp3, .ppt, .doc, .mov .pdf, etc. When the data targeted is located successfully, the '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware triggers its encryption process. This data-locking Trojan applies the rather lengthy '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak' file extension to the newly locked files. This means that a file that you had called 'puppy.jpeg' will be altered to 'puppy.jpeg.!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak.' When the '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware is done encrypting all the data targeted it would proceed by dropping its ransom note. The ransom note of this file-encrypting Trojan is called 'prontos_chek_base.txt.' The authors of the '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware require the victim to get in touch with them via email on their email address 'prontos@cumallover.me.'

It is never the advised course of action to contact shady individuals like the ones who have created the '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware. Cybercriminals often fail to deliver on the many promises they will make but will take your money gladly. A safer approach in this situation is to obtain a reputable anti-virus suite and have it clear your system of the '!__prontos@cumallover.me__.bak File Extension' Ransomware.
