How does INPIVX Ransomware work?
INPIVX Ransomware is a Ransomware-as-a-service tool that provides its users with a malware source code. This code can be used to build and manage ransomware infections. At the time of research – according to our malware experts – the tool was on the market for $500. This is not a small price to pay for a malware code, but we are sure that it could become very marketable. If cyber criminals can manage to cough up 500 Dollars, they might be able to retrieve that sum many times over. It all depends on how successful the threat is, and that depends on how fast security software is updated and how cautious Windows users are. Since many different versions could exist, discussing the removal of INPIVX Ransomware is a complicated thing. Nonetheless, we suggest reading this report to learn more about this RaaS.
If you have 500$, you too can purchase INPIVX Ransomware, but you might have no clue how to use it. Our team found the description of the tool, and so we know the features that it might offer the users. First of all, the infection is coded in PHP and C++, and it is password-protected to ensure that no one can take over. INPIVX Ransomware is completely customizable, and that means that users can change its name, the size of the ransom, and, of course, the Bitcoin wallet address, to which the ransom would have to be paid. After invasion, the infection sets a unique ID code for every victim automatically. The files are encrypted using the AES+RSA combination, where one encryption algorithm is used to encrypt files, and the second one is used to encrypt the first key. According to the description, a decryption tool is available, and all profits go to the attacker who is controlling the infection. It also indicates that Windows server 2012, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 systems can all be affected. The only downside is that the threat is only available in English.INPIVX Ransomware screenshot

Ultimately, one does not need a tremendous amount of experience to handle INPIVX Ransomware. This is bad news for us. Stop Ransomware, Crysis Ransomware, or Dharma Ransomware are all RaaS infections, and we have seen a ton of infections that have derived from them. Unfortunately, it is possible that we will need to dedicate a lot of our time analyzing, reporting, and deleting INPIVX Ransomware threats too. So, how can you avoid them? That is the million dollar question, isn’t it? The reality is that the distribution of this malware depends on the attackers controlling it, but we know for a fact that most threats of this kind are distributed using spam emails, malicious bundled downloaders, security vulnerabilities, and they can be downloaded by silent Trojans too. Therefore, if you secure your system and act cautiously, you should be able to evade this malware. Needless to say, it is crucial to backup personal files. This is your insurance against ransomware, and if it slithers in and corrupts your files, you will be able to get back on your feet in no time. Just don’t use internal system backups because ransomware is known to be capable of deleting those.
If you need to delete INPIVX Ransomware – or any version of this malware – from your Windows operating system, you have to be very cautious. Identifying the infection’s .exe file can be tough, and if you delete the wrong file, you could be creating a bigger mess. Therefore, if you find yourself being unable to eliminate threats, install anti-malware software without any hesitation. This software will not only remove INPIVX Ransomware and other threats if they exist but will also reinstate full Windows protection to ensure that other versions of this malicious file-encryptor and other kinds of malware cannot attack you again.
Remove INPIVX Ransomware
- Delete recently downloaded suspicious files to eliminate the [random name].exe launcher file.
- If a ransom note file exists, Delete it (delete copies too).
- Empty Recycle Bin and then quickly perform a full system scan using a legitimate malware scanner.
In non-techie terms:
You need to protect your Windows operating system against INPIVX Ransomware because this malware can be rebuilt many times over and over again. It works as a RaaS tool, and that means that it offers an open source code that anyone can purchase and use to create their own variants. It is impossible to say how many different variants could exist, but, without a doubt, every single one of them requires removal. At this point, we cannot say how one would have to delete INPIVX Ransomware, but, most likely, the victim would need to eliminate the launcher and a ransom note file. This will become clearer with the specific threats that our research team will analyze and report in the future. For now, it is most important to secure systems and backup personal files to protect them in case the attacks are successful.
