Trojan.Ransomware Description

Is a cryptic message written in Russian blocking your access to your computer? Does a full screen message appear when you attempt to boot into Windows? When and if this occurs, it is highly probable that your computer has become infected with Trojan.Ransomware. This ransomware Trojan is designed to take over the victim's computer, blocking access to the victim's files and applications until the victim pays an expensive ransom to retrieve the unlock code. ESG malware analysts do not advise paying to disable the Trojan.Ransomware intrusive message. Rather, this ransomware message can be trashed using a trusted anti-malware program and using an alternative boot method to start up Windows.

The Trojan.Ransomware Scam

The Trojan.Ransomware ransom message has an appearance that is very similar to the so-called Windows Blue Screen of Death. However, the message is written entirely in Russian, meaning that non-Russian speaking computer users may have additional problems understanding what is wrong with their computer. Like most ransomware scams, Trojan.Ransomware demands that the victim pay in exchange for the unlock code. To do this, Trojan.Ransomware demands that the victim send an SMS message to a particular number. Even though the Trojan.Ransomware scam targets computer users in Russia and Eastern Europe, all computers using the Windows operating system are vulnerable to this infection.

Dealing with the Trojan.Ransomware Trojan and Preventing Further Infections

Unfortunately, unlike many other ransomware infections, starting up Windows in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with networking will not be enough to bypass the Trojan.Ransomware message. However, starting up from an external memory drive or using Safe Mode with a command prompt can allow computer users to regain access to their files and applications. Once you have access to a command prompt, access the Windows explorer to be able to browse your drive while bypassing the Trojan.Ransomware Trojan. Since the main problem with removing Trojan.Ransomware is actually gaining access to your security software, once you have gained access to your system, most fully-updated security programs should be able to remove Trojan.Ransomware effectively.

ESG security analysts have detected the presence of Trojan.Ransomware in various unsafe websites, often disguised as a fake video codec or media player. For example, some computer users have reported becoming infected with Trojan.Ransomware after accessing a Russian pornographic website prompting the download of a supposed video player named 'pornoplayer.exe'. Using common sense when downloading anything, combined with the use of a properly updated anti-malware program, should be enough to prevent a Trojan.Ransomware infection.
