Dqb Ransomware Removal Guide

Do you know what Dqb Ransomware is?

It is important that you backup your personal files and secure your operating system right now because Dqb Ransomware is on the loose. Cyber criminals might trick you into executing this dangerous malware via spam emails or malicious downloaders, or it could slither in through one of the invisible security cracks you might be unaware of completely. The threat is relatively new, and we are yet to find out whether or not it spreads on a large scale, but it exists, and so we need to take it seriously. If you read this report, you will learn what to do if the infection gets in, how to delete Dqb Ransomware, and how to protect your operating system against attackers in the future. Are you interested? Then keep reading.

Did you notice the “.id-{unique ID}.[btcdecoding@qq.com].dqb” extension appended to your photos, videos, documents, and other personal files? If you did, you should be unable to open these files. That is because Dqb Ransomware has encrypted them to make them unreadable. The point is to make you think that you need to obtain a special key to decrypt the files. Unfortunately, alternative methods of file recovery are not available right now, and that means that the only option you’ve got is the one offered by cyber criminals. Is it legitimate? While we have no proof, we doubt that you would get the decryptor that would free your files if you followed the instructions presented by Dqb Ransomware. These instructions are presented via the “RETURN FILES.txt” file and the “btcdecoding@qq.com” window.

The TXT file simply lists two email addresses – btcdecoding@qq.com and back_data@foxmail.com – but the message in the Dqb Ransomware window informs that you need to email either of these addresses if you want to get a key that, allegedly, is the only thing that can restore your files. You are given 7 days to do that, but we do not recommend taking this demand too seriously. There are zero guarantees that you would get the key or that it would decrypt your files. Also, if the ransom requested in return for this key is big, you certainly want to think twice before getting yourself involved. Even sending the message could be dangerous, and so if you decide to do it, do yourself a favor and create a new email account. The last thing you need is to have your inbox flooded with spam emails and other scam messages. You also do not want to waste your money for no good reason at all.

Do not hesitate to remove Dqb Ransomware from your operating system. While your personal files will not be saved, this will make your entire system safer overall, and you will be able to start fresh. Hopefully, you will be able to replace the corrupted files with backup copies, and you will be able to forget about the incident in no time. Of course, if backups do not exist, the attack of Dqb Ransomware can be detrimental. In any case, removing this malware is crucial, and we suggest handling it as soon as possible. If you are more experienced, and you can identify malware, you might be capable of erasing the threat manually, but if you also want to secure your operating system at the same time, you should immediately install an anti-malware program that will clean and protect at once.

Delete Dqb Ransomware from Windows

  1. Find the launcher file and quickly Delete it.
  2. Delete the ransom note file, RETURN FILES.txt.
  3. Empty Recycle Bin.
  4. Install a trusted malware scanner.
  5. Perform a full system scan to check for leftovers.

In non-techie terms:

Dqb Ransomware is a threat that can make a huge mess out of your personal files. If you do not protect your operating system against it, it might slither in without your notice and encrypt your files silently. After that, the infection reveals itself with the ransom demands. Although the ransom is not requested right away, if you contact the attackers as instructed, they would ask to pay a certain sum. You should not do that. Instead, you should focus on the removal of Dqb Ransomware. Can you do it manually? Go ahead, but do not forget to secure your operating system. If manual removal is not an option, install an anti-malware tool. This is the path we recommend taking because the tool will automatically delete active threats and will secure your operating system against all others, which is exactly what you need.
