Do you know what InducVirus Ransomware is?
If you face InducVirus Ransomware, whatever you do, DO NOT click the “PLEASE DELETE MY SYSTEM” button. If you do that, your operating system’s MBR (master boot record) will be encrypted, and everything will be destroyed. To restore the system, you will need to reinstall Windows. Unfortunately, even if you do not click any buttons that are displayed on the infection’s window, your files will be encrypted. The threat uses a unique algorithm to encrypt files, and only a decryption key can help restore them. Where is this decryption key? It is in the hands of the attackers who created the malicious ransomware, and, needless to say, they will not release it. Although you might be promised a decryptor if you communicate with cyber criminals, we suggest that you pay no attention to their promises. Instead, focus on removing InducVirus Ransomware from your operating system.
The malicious InducVirus Ransomware is also known by the name Delphi Ransomware, and it is believed that it could be spread via spam emails, using malicious installers, or by exploiting security backdoors silently. If the threat is executed without interruption, you are unlikely to realize that it requires removal until your personal files are encrypted and the ransom message is displayed on your screen. Of course, the infection does not encrypt ALL files, but it definitely can encrypt pretty much everything that is located in the %USERPROFILE% directory. If you go here, you should find that your personal files have the “.FilGZmsp” extension attached to them and that you cannot open them. These are the files that the infection has encrypted. Unfortunately, even if you delete InducVirus Ransomware, you will not restore these files. At the moment, a third-party decryptor that could work does not exist either.InducVirus Ransomware screenshot

After the encryption of personal files, InducVirus Ransomware launches its own window with a message and two buttons (“Okay!” and “I’m *** ***! PLEASE DELETE MY SYSTEM”) underneath. The message in this window is also represented via two unique files called “!!ÊàêÐàñøèôðîâàòüÝòóÏàðàøó.txt” and “!!КакРасшифроватьЭтуПарашу.txt.” The first file is created on computers that do not use the Russian language, and the second one is created on computers that do. The message informs that files were encrypted using RC6 algorithm and that the victim should email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about decryption options. Only 10 hours are given. The message also implies that files would be permanently destroyed or deleted if the victim did not make contact within the 10-hour timeframe. Of course, if you sent an email to InducVirus Ransomware cyber criminals, they would try to make you pay a ransom, download a suspicious file, or do something else, and we suggest that you do none of this. Cyber criminals are deceptive, and they are here to scam you.
Hopefully, you did not click random buttons, and your operating system is still fully functional. Although we cannot help you decrypt files corrupted by InducVirus Ransomware, at the time of research, no one could. And if you rely on cyber criminals to help you out, you are likely to burn your fingers, so be careful. Our recommendation is that you delete InducVirus Ransomware from your operating system right away, and although you might be able to do that manually, it is our recommendation that you employ anti-malware software. You need it to protect your operating system anyway, so you might as well install it now and reap the benefits of easy malware removal.
Remove InducVirus Ransomware
- Delete all recently downloaded files.
- Delete !!ÊàêÐàñøèôðîâàòüÝòóÏàðàøó.txt or !!КакРасшифроватьЭтуПарашу.txt (on Desktop).
- Empty Recycle Bin.
- Scan the system using a legitimate malware scanner to make sure malware was fully eliminated.
In non-techie terms:
If your operating system is not protected, InducVirus Ransomware can use many different methods to slither in. This malicious threat encrypts personal files and then it instructs you to contact cyber attackers via email, which you should not do. Cyber attackers are likely to make a ransom demand, and whether the sum is small or big, you are unlikely to get anything that would help decrypt files in return. Hopefully, your files are backed up, and you are not at risk of losing them. Overall, we suggest focusing on the removal of the threat first. Some might delete InducVirus Ransomware manually, but the detection process is complicated, and so we suggest installing anti-malware software instead. Do not hesitate to install it because this software will guarantee protection against other threats in the future.
