Happydayz@india.com Ransomware Removal Guide

Do you know what Happydayz@india.com Ransomware is?

Ransomware is a dangerous infection spreading online. Users often get infected with it, meaning that crooks keep developing it. Happydayz@india.com Ransomware is a new creation of cyber criminals. It does not ask per permission to enter computers, so users have no idea why they cannot access any of their files until they read the message opened for them by this ransomware infection. Happydayz@india.com Ransomware is the one responsible for encrypting personal files even though users are only told that their files have been encrypted because a serious security problem has emerged. Of course, users are also informed that they can unlock their files by paying a certain amount of money. Actually, the main purpose of ransomware is to obtain money from users, showing that Happydayz@india.com Ransomware is not unique in any sense. We know how badly users might need to access certain files, e.g. documents, but paying money to cyber criminals is an extremely bad decision because there are no guarantees at all that a decryption tool will be given to users after they transfer the required money. In other words, they might be left both without files and without cash.

Sadly, there is surely a ransomware infection inside your computer if pictures, videos, documents, and other files have received a new filename extension .{Happydayz@india.com}, for example, picture.jpg.{Happydayz@india.com}. All these files having a new filename extension next to the original one have been encrypted using the AES-256 encryption algorithm. Unfortunately, this means that it might be impossible to unlock files without the private key. Cyber criminals claim to have it, and users can purchase this key from cyber criminals. As the information located on an opened window tells, users only need to send the unique ID to happydayz@india.com and then pay money in Bitcoins after receiving further instructions. This has to be done within 72 hours: “HURRY! Your personal code for decryption stored with us only 72 HOURS!”. Evidently, Happydayz@india.com Ransomware does not leave much time to think, and it does not want users to find a way to decrypt their files for free. At the time of writing, a free decryption tool does not exist, but it might be released by specialists in the future, so users who discover their files encrypted and do not plan to pay for the decryption key should wait for a free decryptor to be released. Users who have their important files backed up can recover files today after the Happydayz@india.com Ransomware removal. In this case, users should not even bother decrypting those encrypted files.Happydayz@india.com Ransomware Removal GuideHappydayz@india.com Ransomware screenshot
