Nmcrypt ransomware virus

Nmcrypt is the perilous program penetrating laptops mostly through Trojans and scam e-mails. Sometimes fraudsters use zero-day vulnerabilities to take control over the PC, but major program vendors promptly fix them. After the infection, Nmcrypt inspects the hard disc to find the files to be encrypted and their approximate price. Currently, each modern ransomware is able to cypher video, text, audio and image info in all popular extensions. Ransomware encrypts all folders, but those that could be business documents go first. Ransomware encrypts only files with information, and doesn't touch the programs, so that the victim can pay the ransom with help of an infected PC. Encryption is performed through well-known RSA and AES algorithms, and its complexity is so above the average level that it cannot be bruteforced. This is the basis for unbelievable efficiency of this sort of viruses in last years: an ordinary PC operator, even if he has a very high knowledge of the computer, will never decrypt the data, and will have no way out except paying the ransom. The sole way to restore the data is to find the scam site and get the master key. Sometimes it is possible to retrieve these keys through faults in the code of the virus itself. The corrupted files get .nmcryprt extension, and asks for 7000 usd for file restoration. Virus adds Battle of Manila (1945).pptx.NMCRYPT! file with payment instruction:

Nmcrypt virus

The knowledge of computers is quite significant in our century, as it assists user to defend the workstation from computer viruses. For ransomware this is most relevant, as, unlike normal viruses, when you uninstall ransomware from the PC, the effects of its doings will stay. To guard your PC, you have to keep in mind these three elementary rules:

    • Pay attention to the dialog boxes. The simplest manner of data restoration is the restoration from Shadow Copies, and the developers of Nmcrypt have added the deletion of shadow copies in the basic functionality of ransomware. However deletion of copies requires admin rights and verification from the user. So, if you do not accept alterations from a suspicious program at the right time, you will reserve the opportunity to decrypt all lost data free of charge.
    • Be cautious with the e-mails which contain files. If the letter comes from an unknown sender and it is about receiving any prize, a lost package or anything like that, this is most likely ransomware. The other efficient kind of such letters is a forgery for business correspondence. It is normal to be interested and click on the message even if it might be not for you, but remember that one click on the viral file may cost you a lot of money, headache and time.
    • Do not disregard the symptoms that your hardware and software shows. Information encryption is a intricate act that needs a considerable amount of PC resources. When the Nmcrypt starts to operate, the CPU performance decreases, and the encryption process can be found in Process Manager. You can catch this moment and shut down the machine before information will be completely lost. Surely, some data will be corrupted, but the rest of them will remain intact.

You should know that the elimination of ransomware is only the first and mandatory move for the standard operation of the system. If you remove virus, you will not restore the information instantly, it will demand multiple actions written down in the following section. In case of encrypting virus we don't give the by-hand uninstall guide, because its complexity and the probability of errors appears to be too high for common user. We do not suggest you to eliminate ransomware in manual mode, since it has many defensive mechanics that will counteract you. Some malware can easily erase corrupted data, or some of it, when trying to uninstall the program. This is very unwanted, and the below guide will assist you to deal with it.
