What is DecYourData Ransomware

Ransomware has been one of the most abused infections that endanger unprotected user’s data. DecYourData developers did not trail behind and released their own piece as well. Using AES-256 algorithms it stalwartly ciphers multiple files found on your device. The range may vary from images, videos, music to simple text documents. Once encrypted, it, therefore, makes files inaccessible by appending new id-{random-set} [decyourdata@protonmail.com]_all-files-encrypted extensions to each file. For example, the original 1.mp4 file will be renamed into 1.mp4.id-{random-set} [decyourdata@protonmail.com]_all-files-encrypted meaning that the data is blocked. After the encryption, the ransom note will automatically appear on the screen with all the necessary information on how to decrypt your data. You will then realize that extortionists demand mind-blowing 5000$ for getting a unique decipher key that will unlock your data. The payment has to be processed solely in BTC and therefore sent to their Bitcoin wallet address that is mentioned in the note. They made everything possible to speed up the process and even presented a list of platforms where people can convert money into bitcoin. On top of that, they can also prove their integrity by decrypting one non-important file that can be sent through e-mail. Even though, it is not worth-risking into paying, especially enormous 5000$. Instead, you can use this tutorial to remove DecYourData Ransomware and decrypt _all-files-encrypted files.
