What is Dharma-Wiki Ransomware

Dharma-Wiki Ransomware is a file-encrypting type of malware designed to deprive the money and nerves of its victims. It belongs to the notorious Dharma/Crysis Ransomware family. It interferes with file extensions by changing them to .id-{random-8-digit-alphanumerical-sequence}.[bitlocker@foxmail.com].wiki and remains encrypted until a ransom is paid. After the blocking process is finished, it will leave a ransom note on your desktop notifying that your data was successfully encrypted and requires action. Below are the messages from the page, that virus opens and from FILES ENCRYPTED.txt file:

To decrypt your files, you have got to contact hackers via one of the methods presented in the note and pay a specific fee to get your files back. This kind of frauds is trying to encrypt the most precious data stored on your PC like text documents, videos, images, and others. Therefore, they gamble on the value of your data to push you into paying an equal exchange. Of course, cybercriminals are trying to hurry you up by threatening that if you do not pay within 24 hours, they will raise the price up. If you refuse paying a ransom, they might also begin saying that they will spread your data to third parties and they will make a bad use of it. The ransom must be paid solely in Bitcoin cryptocurrency apparently because of its secure blockchain technology. Unfortunately, there has not been any free tool that could take off the blocking algorithm from files so far. You can only remove Dharma-Wiki Ransomware to prevent further data loss. The only viable way to restore your files is from the backup which is not always guaranteed.

How Dharma-Wiki Ransomware infected your computer

The most effective and frequently-used method to infiltrate the ransomware into your PC is via spam e-mail newsletters. Hijackers usually pose themselves as a member of some legal company like delivery or advertisement services that notify customers about their products. Generally, people do accept these kinds of letters as friendly and either click on malicious links or download an attached file like PDF, EXE, etc. As a result of users’ carelessness and insensitivity on the internet, they are easily getting hooked by these plain tricks. By interacting with these files they cause an inevitable infection of Ransomware that immediately alters your file extensions to unlockable ones. P2P sharing networks (BitTorrent, eMule, Gnutella, etc.), unofficial and free file-hosting websites, third party downloaders and similar channels are untrustworthy as well and can lead to files decimation. Cracking tools also can contribute to the above list. Because of its overwhelming application to bypass the payment of licensed utilities, hijackers also hide their malware in this type of software. Be wary before clicking or downloading something that seems doubtful from the web. By reducing the number of suspicious pages you visit, you will, therefore, lower the chances of being attacked by fraudulence. Dharma-Wiki Ransomware is a hazardous malware that has to be urgently removed from your computer. To do this, follow the steps attached below.
