Wannacryonclick Ransomware Removal Guide

Do you know what Wannacryonclick Ransomware is?

Wannacryonclick Ransomware is an infection that was created to resemble the infamous WannaCry Ransomware. Our research team has seen plenty of lookalikes that are created by cyber criminals who, probably, want to reach at least a fraction of the success that the infamous WannaCry has managed to reach. Unsurprisingly, most of the lookalikes cannot compare, and many of them are not even capable of encrypting files. The threat we are talking about in this report does not function properly either. In fact, at the time of research, it could not encrypt files, which, of course, minimizes the chances of it generating a profit. It is possible that the developer of this threat is just testing the waters and that a stronger and more lucrative threat will be unleashed in the future. Right now, you should be able to remove Wannacryonclick Ransomware without experiencing any consequences.

It appears that Wannacryonclick Ransomware was created to target users who speak Turkish, and it was found that it is most likely to be spread using corrupted spam emails. The installer of this threat could be attached to a misleading email to trick you into opening it yourself. Once the file is opened, the threat should encrypt your personal files, but, as we discussed already, it does not do that. It does not lock the screen either, and, according to our research, it would not start back up again if you restarted your computer. However, Wannacryonclick Ransomware displays a window entitled “Local” upon execution. This window shares many elements with the ransom window used by WannaCry Ransomware, which is why we are comparing the two. At the top, you are greeted with a warning “Ooops, your files have been encrypted!” and when a message like that pops up, the first thing you must do is check out if your files were encrypted. If they were not, obviously, you should get on with removal as soon as possible.

The cyber criminals behind Wannacryonclick Ransomware are using the bogus ransom message to make you pay a ransom of $7000, which is a ridiculously large ransom. Unfortunately, the message informs that cyber crooks are in full control over your computer and that they can delete your data if they want to. It is suggested that if you transfer the ransom to 1Hydrt8E3ywaS7YBtggFFNn1AyquaBzz (a Bitcoin Wallet set up by cyber criminals), you will be able to get your files back. You are instructed to click the “Check Payment” button after the transfer, and it was found that if you do, an email is automatically sent to nazm.fatma@yandex.com from muhasebe@komposan.com. Wannacryonclick Ransomware does that to inform the creator about the successful infiltration and, potentially, about the payment of the ransom.Wannacryonclick Ransomware Removal GuideWannacryonclick Ransomware screenshot

If your files were not encrypted, there is no reason to postpone the elimination of Wannacryonclick Ransomware for much longer. If your files were encrypted, look into legitimate file decryptors, but do not pay the ransom because that is unlikely to help, and $7000 is too much money to waste for no good reason. When it comes to deleting Wannacryonclick Ransomware, you should be able to get rid of this infection by erasing its launcher. Can you identify it? If you can, go ahead and remove it right away. If you have no clue where this file is, install a legitimate anti-malware tool to have it eliminated automatically. If any other infections exist, they will be eliminated as well.

Remove Wannacryonclick Ransomware

  1. Identify the {unknown name}.exe that is the launcher of the ransomware.
  2. Right-click this file and then choose Delete.
  3. Empty Recycle Bin and then perform a full system scan using a reliable malware scanner.

In non-techie terms:

It is a must to delete Wannacryonclick Ransomware because this ransomware was created by malicious cyber criminals who want nothing else but to make you pay a huge ransom. At the time of research, this infection was unable to encrypt files, which is the main leverage it has when demanding a ransom of $7000. Due to this, you should not face any changes after you remove the ransomware. In an unlikely event of finding your files encrypted, paying the ransom is not recommended either. The only logical thing to do is to eliminate the theat. To protect yourself from this kind of malware in the future, we recommend employing anti-malware software and backing up your files for reliable protection.
