What is Jackpot Ransomware

Jackpot is a type of ransomware, a malicious software that encrypts files on a victim’s computer and demands a ransom for their decryption. It was first seen in early 2020. The ransomware is known to modify the Windows Registry editor, change the wallpaper, and notify the victim about the infection. During the encryption process, Jackpot Ransomware appends the .coin extension to all compromised files. For example, a file named 1.jpg would appear as 1.jpg.coin. The specific encryption algorithm used by Jackpot Ransomware is not specified in the search results. After the encryption process is complete, Jackpot Ransomware creates ransom messages in payment request.html and payment request.txt files on the desktop. The ransomware also locks the device’s screen with a message identical to those in the ransom-demand .html and .txt files.

All your important files are encrypted.

Unfortunately, in most cases of ransomware infections, decryption is impossible without the involvement of the cybercriminals responsible. Despite meeting the ransom demands, victims often do not receive the necessary decryption tools or software, leading to financial loss and leaving their data encrypted and essentially useless. As of the current date, there is no specific decryption tool available for Jackpot Ransomware. The FBI has developed decryption tools for some types of ransomware, but there is no specific mention of a tool for Jackpot Ransomware.

To prevent Jackpot Ransomware from further encryption, it must be eliminated from the operating system. However, removal will not restore already affected data. It is crucial to maintain up-to-date antivirus software, understand network activity, scan and filter emails before they reach users, and train staff to recognize suspicious emails. In the event of an infection, having a recovery plan that covers all types of tech disasters, including a ransomware response, is essential. Jackpot Ransomware is a serious threat that encrypts files and demands a ransom for their decryption. While decryption tools are currently unavailable, preventive measures and a robust recovery plan can help mitigate the impact of such an attack.

Jackpot Ransomware

To prevent infection by Jackpot Ransomware, users should maintain up-to-date antivirus software, avoid downloading suspicious attachments or software, and regularly back up their data. If a system is already infected, it is crucial to remove the ransomware using a reputable antivirus or anti-malware tool before attempting file recovery to prevent further encryption. Jackpot Ransomware is a serious threat that can lead to the loss of important data. While there may not be a guaranteed decryption tool available, taking preventive measures and exploring all recovery options can help mitigate the damage caused by such infections.

How Jackpot Ransomware infects computers

The infection process of Jackpot Ransomware follows the typical phases of a ransomware attack: surveillance, distribution, infection, staging, scanning, encryption, and extortion. In the surveillance phase, attackers gather information to identify vulnerabilities and potential avenues for exploitation. The distribution phase involves the delivery of the malicious code to the victim’s system, often through phishing emails or malicious downloads. Once the ransomware is on the system, it begins the infection process, scanning for files to encrypt.

idrive backup

As an additional way to save your files, we recommend online backup. Local storage, such as hard drives, SSDs, flash drives, or remote network storage can be instantly infected by the virus once plugged in or connected to. Jackpot Ransomware uses some techniques to exploit this. One of the best services and programs for easy automatic online backup is iDrive. It has the most profitable terms and a simple interface. You can read more about iDrive cloud backup and storage here.

3. Do not open spam e-mails and protect your mailbox
