How to remove Dharma-MERS Ransomware and decrypt .MERS files


Dharma-MERS Ransomware is another iteration of extremely dangerous Crysis-Dharma-Cezar ransomware family, that, in this case, adds .MERS extension to the end of the files it encrypts. Virus, actually, composes suffix using several parts: e-mail address, unique 8-digit identification number (randomly generated) and .MERS extension. So, finally, encoded files will receive following complex suffix – .id-{8-digit-id}.[{email-address}].MERS. As a rule, Dharma-type Ransomware extorts for $500 to $1500 ransom, that can be paid in Monero, Dash or BTC (BitCoins), and in return they promise to send decryption key. Using cryptocurrency makes it impossible to track the payee. We do not recommend to pay any money to malefactors. Usually, after some period of time security specialists from antivirus companies or individual researchers break the algorithms and release decryption keys. Mention, that some files can be restored by using backups, shadow copies, previous versions of files or file-recovery software.
