Blue Eagle ransomware virus

That entry is dedicated to Blue Eagle ransomware that infects customers' laptops around the world, and encrypts their files. Here you can see important information on Blue Eagle's essence, and how to delete Blue Eagle from your workstation. Except that, we'll tell you how to restore the corrupted files, if possible.

Blue Eagle is the harmful program penetrating computers mainly through Trojans and phishing e-mails. Sometimes web-criminals use zero-day vulnerabilities to infect the computer, but they are quickly corrected. When infection is done, Blue Eagle scans the PC memory to find the folders for encryption and their approximate worth. Currently, any modern ransomware is able to cypher image, audio, video and text information in all known extensions. Blue Eagle cyphers all files, but those that look like business documents go first. All programs on computer will be safe since fraudsters want only information. Encryption is made through famous RSA and AES algorithms, and it is so complicated that that decryption of information without a key is impossible. This is the basis for unbelievable effectuality of this sort of viruses in last years: an ordinary PC operator, even having a pretty good knowledge of the PC, won't ever decrypt the files, and will have no choice except paying the ransom. The sole manner to restore the data is to hack the fraudster's site and obtain the encryption keys. Sometimes it is possible to withdraw the keys through faults in viruse's program code.

The knowledge of computers is highly significant in our century, because it helps you to guard the laptop from malicious programs. For ransomware it's most relevant, because, in contradistinction to regular viruses, when you uninstall ransomware from the PC, the effects of its doings do not vanish anywhere. To shield your laptop, you should keep in mind a few basic rules:

    • Monitor the condition of your laptop. Information encryption is a complicated operation that uses a lot of PC resources. When the malware starts to work, the computer slows down, and the encrypting process is visible in Process Manager. You may catch this moment and shut down the machine before information will be totally encrypted. This, in case of infection, will guard a lot of your files.
    • Be careful with the messages that contain files. If you don't know who send the letter and it is about receiving some prize, a lost parcel or anything similar, this could be a fraud letter. The second most popular sort of these letters is a "business letters". summaries, Invoices for services and goods, lawsuits, appeals and similar sensitive documents cannot be sent without warning, and you, as a minimum, should know the person who sent it. In most of the cases it is a scam.
    • Don't accept any changes to the system, originating from strange software. The easiest manner of information restoration is the recovery through Shadow Copies, so the creators of viruses have added the elimination of shadow copies in the basic features of ransomware. The deletion of shadow copies needs admin rights and your verification. If you'll stop for a moment before confirming the pop-up, it may save your information and your money.
