How to remove Qqlc Ransomware and decrypt .qqlc files

If you cannot open your files, and they've got .qqlc extension added at the end of the filenames, it means your PC is infected with Qqlc Ransomware, the part of STOP/Djvu Ransomware family. This malware is tormenting its victims since 2017 and has already become the most widespread ransomware-type virus in history. It infects thousands of computers per day using various methods of distribution. It is using a complex combination of symmetric or asymmetric encryption algorithms, removes Windows restore points, Windows previous versions of files, shadow copies and basically leaves only 3 possibilities for recovery. The first is to pay the ransom, however, there is absolutely no guarantee, that malefactors will send the decryption key back. The second possibility is very unlikely, but worth trying - using a special decryption tool from Emsisoft, called STOP Djvu Decryptor. It works only under a number of conditions, that we describe in the next paragraph. The third one is using file-recovery programs, which often act as a workaround for ransomware infection problems. Let's observe the ransom note file (_readme.txt), that the virus places on the desktop and in the folders with encrypted files.

How to remove PLAY ransomware and decrypt .PLAY files

PLAY is a ransomware-type virus that runs encryption of important data and extorts money from victims. While rendering files inaccessible, it assigns the .PLAY extension and also creates a text note called ReadMe.txt. For instance, a file previously titled 1.pdf will change to 1.pdf.PLAY and reset it's icon after encryption. Since then, victims lose control over their data and have to read instructions on its recovery in the created text note. It is common for ransomware infections to be distributed via phishing techniques. A virus may be disguised as some legitimate-looking file (e.g., Word, Excel, PDF, EXE, JavaScript, RAR, ZIP, etc.) and be sent inside of an e-mail spam letter. Such a letter may present information explaining the “importance” of opening attached files or links.
