Do you know what Nppp Ransomware is?
Can you protect your operating system from malware? If you rely on no one but yourself, Nppp Ransomware needs to be on your radar. This malicious infection can use stealth techniques to slither in, and you might be tricked into executing it yourself without even knowing it. For example, the launcher could pose as a document file, and this file could be sent to you via email. Cybercriminals can hijack legitimate email accounts or build their own, legitimate-looking, inconspicuous accounts, and they could use them to send files. The subject lines and the messages within the emails could be highly convincing too. Unfortunately, it is not enough to monitor your email inbox alone. There are plenty of other security backdoors that the attackers could employ as well. So, have you faced this malware? Do you need to delete Nppp Ransomware? Hopefully, we can assist you with it all.
Nppp Ransomware, believe it or not, has hundreds of clones, including Righ Ransomware, Remk Ransomware, and Rezm Ransomware. They are all created using the STOP Ransomware code, which is why most security tools (e.g., malware scanners and automated malware removal tools) might recognize unique variants with one single name. If a scanner you use has detected STOP Ransomware, but you can see the“.nppp” extension attached to the names that were encrypted, you can rest assured that Nppp Ransomware is responsible for it. Ultimately, all infections are identical, and it does not matter which variant you face. Even the files that these infections drop are the same and have the same names. This does not apply to the launcher. %HOMEDRIVE% is the directory where the infection drops SystemID, a folder with a PersonalID.txt file inside. This file contains a unique ID code that the infection assigns to you. In the same directory, the infection also drops the _readme.txt file.Nppp Ransomware screenshot

The _readme.txt file is dropped by Nppp Ransomware so that all victims of the infection would understand what is expected from them. To put it simply, the attackers want money from you, and they expect you to email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to receive instructions on how to pay a ransom of $490. Some victims might be willing to do whatever it takes to get their personal files back. If you have contacted the attackers and paid the ransom already, it is most likely that you were left empty-handed. Unfortunately, cybercriminals do not need to give you anything in return because they do not care about “giving” in general. They are all about “taking” instead. If you think that everything is lost, think about copies. Have you saved any photos, documents or other kinds of files on the cloud or on external drives? If you have, you have replacements. What about free decryptors? The STOP Decryptor might help, but if you choose to install it, be careful.
If you have to remove Nppp Ransomware from your operating system, you should do it as soon as possible. After you remove the threat, we hope that you will be able to restore files using a free tool or online/external backups. As you know, your virtual security is an important thing to figure out as well. Therefore, we advise implementing anti-malware software. It will simultaneously delete Nppp Ransomware (as well as other threats if they exist) and secure your operating system. If you choose to follow the guide below, make sure you figure out how you will protect your operating system in the future immediately.
Delete Nppp Ransomware
- Delete suspicious files you have downloaded recently.
- Tap Win+E to access Explorer.
- Enter %HOMEDRIVE% into the quick access field.
- Delete file named _readme.txt and the folder named SystemID.
- Enter %LOCALAPPDATA% into the quick access field.
- Delete the folder containing malware files. The name of the folder is random.
- Close Explorer and then Empty Recycle Bin.
- Install a malware scanner you trust to check of there is anything else to remove.
In non-techie terms:
Nppp Ransomware is an aggressive infection that slithers into operating systems using stealth techniques and that corrupts files by changing their data. Once the data is ciphered, the files cannot be read, and the attackers are using that to push victims into paying a huge ransom in return for an alleged decryptor. Whether or not you have $490 to cover the “price” of the decryptor, you should not waste your money. Cybercriminals will not give you anything in return, and you will remain stuck with encrypted files. Hopefully, a free tool named STOP Decryptor can help you. Otherwise, perhaps you can replace files using the backups/copies you have stored outside the computer in the past. In any case, you must remove Nppp Ransomware first. While you might be able to delete this malware manually, we encourage all Windows users to implement anti-malware software that can erase active threats automatically and, at the same time, also secure systems against new invaders.
