Rsa-4096 Ransomware Removal Guide

Do you know what Rsa-4096 Ransomware is?

Rsa-4096 Ransomware is another name for TeslaCrypt (version 3.0) Ransomware. This infection is typical crypto-malware that locks personal files on victims’ computers as soon as it infiltrates their computers successfully. Since it uses a strong RSA-4096 encryption algorithm to encrypt data on victims’ computers, some specialists call it Rsa-4096 Ransomware instead of TeslaCrypt Ransomware. It is used for money extortion, so do not be surprised when you discover a ransom note with instructions explaining how to make a payment. It is nothing smart about sending money to malicious software developers. There are no guarantees that you could unlock files on your computer after you make a payment. Additionally, cyber criminals will never stop developing new malicious applications if all victims give them what they want the most, i.e. their money. Do not be one of those users who support cyber criminals – delete Rsa-4096 Ransomware from your system ASAP if you have encountered it. Then, install security software so that other harmful infections could not enter your system illegally again.

Unlike some other malicious applications, Rsa-4096 Ransomware will not hide in the corner after the successful entrance. Instead, it will start doing its dirty job right away. That is, it will scan your computer to find where such personal files as documents, music, and images are located and then will lock them all mercilessly. All these encrypted files can no longer be opened, and, on top of that, their original filename extensions are changed. You will also find three new files on your computer: Recovery+{5 random symbols}.html, Recovery+{5 random symbols}.png, and Recovery+{5 random symbols}.txt. Since the ransomware infection drops the .png file as well, there is a possibility that you will find your Desktop background changed too. If you read the message any of these files contain, you will know why you can no longer open your files: “All of your files were protected by a strong encryption with RSA-4096.” Only a private decryption key can unlock them. It is stored on a secret server belonging to cyber criminals behind Rsa-4096 Ransomware. They want your money in exchange for the decryption key and program. Free decryption software might be unavailable, but it does not mean that you should send a ransom to cyber criminals behind Rsa-4096 Ransomware. Keep in mind that they might take your money but do not give you anything in exchange. That is, you might not get the promised tool for decrypting files from them. No doubt your money will not be sent back to you in this case.Rsa-4096 Ransomware Removal GuideRsa-4096 Ransomware screenshot
