What is Enfp Ransomware

Being part of the DJVU/STOP family, Enfp is a new ransomware infection targeting data encryption. Just like other malware of this type, Enfp appends its own .enfp extension to encrypted files. To illustrate, an innocent file like 1.mp4 will change to 1.mp4.enfp, and similarly with other files. Developers of ransomware infections pursue monetary benefit – this is why there are providing paid instructions to decrypt your data. This information can be found in a text note (_readme.txt) created in each folder with the encrypted files.

Inside of it, developers give a condensed summary of what happened to your PC. It is said that all of your pictures, databases, documents, and other valuable data were encrypted with strong algorithms, but can be returned. To do this, victims should purchase the decryption tool along with a unique key held by cybercriminals. The original price equals 980$, however, it can be decreased by 50% if you contact swindlers during the first 72 hours. Before doing so, you can also get a video overview of the decryption tool and send 1 random file (that does not contain valuable intel) to test whether developers can decrypt your files for free. Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed way to decrypt files without the involvement of cybercriminals themselves. No other software provided by anti-malware companies can match the necessary ciphers to unlock data affected by Enfp. The only 100% solution is to delete Enfp Ransomware and restore your data from cloud or external devices. If you do not have a backup copy of files, more likely you will not be able to access your data without paying the ransom. This is why it is always important to create regular backups of data on cloud or USB-devices. Even if you do not possess a copy of files, you should still try some third-party tools to recover your files. Below, you will find both removal and decryption instructions for Enfp Ransomware and .enfp files.

How Enfp Ransomware infected your computer

Very often, ransomware infections exploit a wide range of channels to reach the victims. These include e-mail spam messages, trojans, fake software cracking tools, poor RDP configuration, backdoors, keyloggers, untrustworthy downloads, malicious ads, and so forth. To elaborate, e-mail spam means fabricated messages sent by fake legitimate campaigns with malicious attachments. Cybercriminals do bundle MS Office documents, PDFs, executables, and JavaScript files to make the infection less suspicious. They also can put a link leading to dubious websites that promote malware. Once users overextend and interact with the imposed content, they acquire a significant risk to be struck with malicious software. Besides that, you can also find ransomware infecting PCs via trojans. Trojans are a type of malware causing chains of infections. They get installed on your system and download additional malware from the server of cybercriminals. Usually, they can be hidden inside fake software crackers, updates, and so forth. The only way to dodge these types of infections is by using only trusted and legitimate software. Of course, you can man up your protection with the help of anti-malware software, but it is still important to be more careful surfing around the web.
