Desucrypt Ransomware Removal Guide

Do you know what Desucrypt Ransomware is?

Desucrypt Ransomware was designed to corrupt your personal files. It does that using an encryption algorithm, and once files are encrypted, you cannot read them. Do you know which files on your computer were corrupted by the infection? Look for the “.[].DEUSCRYPT” extension because it should be added to their original names. Obviously, the last portion of this extension is where the name of the infection comes from, but some could also identify it as the Rememberggg Ransomware because of the email address that is embedded in the extension as well. We discuss this email address further in the report. You should keep reading it if you want to learn more about the situation, as well as if want to learn how to remove Desucrypt Ransomware. If you cannot wait to get rid of this malware, move to the last section of this report and the guide below it.

Do you remember opening a spam email attachment right before the attack of the malicious Desucrypt Ransomware? If you do, the chances are that the attachment you believed to be harmless was, in fact, a malicious ransomware launcher. Unfortunately, this infection is very clandestine, and less vigilant, careful, and experienced users could let in without realizing it. Once in, the malicious threat deletes Shadow Volume copies and the backup catalog on the Windows server. It also disables Windows Error Recovery on startup. This is done using one command: “cmd.exe / c vssadmin delete shadows / all / quiet & wmic shadowcopy delete & bcdedit / set{ default } bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures & bcdedit / set{ default } recoveryenabled no & wbadmin delete catalog – quiet.” This ensures that the encrypted files cannot be recovered manually. When it comes to the encryption, Desucrypt Ransomware avoids files found in folders with such strings in their names as “AppData,” “Default,” “Intel,” “Microsoft,” “ProgramData,” and “Windows.” This is meant to protect system files, as well as the ransomware itself.Desucrypt Ransomware Removal GuideDesucrypt Ransomware screenshot

The devious Desucrypt Ransomware uses “note.txt” to introduce victims to the demands. This file is created after the encryption, and its copies are placed in all directories along with encrypted files. The message within the file informs that you must send a unique code to It also informs that you would need to pay a ransom in Bitcoins to have files decrypted. Of course, there is not enough information to make the payment, which is why victims of the ransomware are likely to do as told. Note that while communicating with cyber criminals might seem harmless, you do not want them to record your personal address because it could be flooded with other corrupted spam emails in the future. Beyond that, you should not pay the ransom because that will get you nowhere. Instead, you should try to find a harmless file decryptor. It seems that a tool offered by Michael Gillespie can help.

As discussed earlier, you might have let this malware in via a spam email, and, hopefully, you know where to find the launcher. A few possible locations are represented in the guide below. If manual removal is not possible, you always have the option to install anti-malware software. Are you hesitant to invest in it? You should not be if you also care about your virtual security in the future because that is invaluable.

  1. Delete all copies of the note.txt file.
  2. Delete the malicious .exe file that launched the ransomware. It could be found here:

In non-techie terms:

Removing Desucrypt Ransomware might be challenging only if you are completely inexperienced and if you do not know what to do about the files that were encrypted. If the decryption tool mentioned in this report does not help you, hopefully, external backups exist, and the original files corrupted by the threat are not the only ones you own. If you do not use backups, we suggest you start using them. When it comes to the removal, you can try to delete Desucrypt Ransomware manually, but if that does not work, using an anti-malware tool can be very effective. Note that this tool can take care of your system besides automatically erasing malware, which is why it is recommended to everyone.
