Using a mix of AES and RSA algorithms, Yatron Ransomware encrypts user's data and demands victims to pay a so-called ransom. It is known to be advertised on Twitter as "Ransomware-as-a-Service". There is a bunch of file types that can be affected by this ransomware after penetration. Almost all files stored on your PC will be assigned either with .Yatron or .Down_With_Usa extension. Here are the samples of infected files -
1.mp4.Down_With_Usa. Then, once the encryption process is done, the virus drops a text note (Read@My.txt) in each folder and force-opens a pop-up window that states ransom instructions. The content explains that your data has been encrypted. The only way to revert the consequences is to pay 300$ in BTC to the attached address. Sometimes the required amount can vary depending on which version attacked your system. Additionally, the window shows a clock saying that you have 3 days to make a payment, otherwise, your data will be removed completely. Despite manual decryption is usually impossible, you should not trust cyber criminals and follow their steps. The danger is that there is no guarantee they will fulfill their promises and provide necessary tools for data recovery.
Nypg Ransomware is the next generations of STOP Ransomware family from the same authors. This virus aims important user's files, such as documents, photos, databases, music, mail. Ransomware encodes them with AES encryption and adds .nypg extensions to affected files. All these variations use similar algorithms, that are unbreakable, however, in certain conditions .nypg files, encrypted by the ransomware, can be decrypted using STOP Djvu Decryptor (provided below). This version of STOP Ransomware uses following e-mail addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Nypg Ransomware creates _readme.txt ransom note file. Authors of Nypg Ransomware promise to send a decryption tool for encrypted files in exchange for $980 (or for $490, if the ransom is paid within 72 hours). We must warn the victims, that malefactors often don't keep promises, and cheat users without sending a decoder. We recommend you to remove the active infection of Nypg Ransomware and use decryption tools available for .nypg files. If decryption is impossible at the moment, keep encrypted files, that cannot be decrypted yet, to the moment, when the decryption tool will be updated.
A number of reasons can be the culprit for BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO appearing on PCs. Usually, this error can be related to registry, drivers, configuration, hardware, and other issues. The most obvious symptom reflecting the BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO issue is an abrupt shutdown and display of the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). Sometimes Windows cannot fix the problem and keeps crashing without having a chance to finish the boot up successfully. Users have to correspond to other devices to learn fixing instructions. Luckily, there are some options designed by Windows to solve issues without accessing the desktop itself. You will find instructions upon the problem elimination in the article below.

Erica Encoder is a ransomware infection that uses AES algorithms to encrypt user's data. All files that experience a touch of the virus, change their names to a randomly-generated string of symbols. As an example, the original
1.mp4will lose its initial name and appear as something like this
R29vZ24lIENocm9tZS5s3ms9.qgazlb. Then, once all files get assigned with an encryption cipher, Erica Encoder creates a ransom note called HOW TO RESTORE ENCRYPTED FILES.TXT that is supposed to explain how to restore your data.
