Ransomware penetrates the workstation via malicious attachments in electronic mail, and after that promptly begins to encode the files.

The process takes from 5 minutes to several hours, depending on the amount of data on the PC. The scammers want you to pay in Bitcoins, because such payment is most difficult to trace.

Most malware use very complex encryption algorithms like RSA-2048 and AES-128, which successfully secure the secrets of major companies, military forces and governments. .Serp uses them too.

How to restore files encrypted by .Serp

In this entry we have said few times that the man whose workstation is captured with encrypting virus has just one 100% effective manner to restore data: to load the backups.
