How Did My Pc Infected with LightningCrypt ransomware? Is it Dangerous?

LightningCrypt ransomware is an encryption Trojan that is programmed to encrypt data on compromised machines and welcome the affected users to transfer USD worth of 0.17Bitcoins to a particular wallet address if they want to recover their data. The small price for decryption might be intended to serve as an incentive to pay the “decryption fee” and avoid further implications. However, there are no reports from users suggesting that paying is the best bet. The cyber crooks behind the Ransomware might not cooperate, and you might lose a small fortune and your data. The operators of the LightningCrypt Ransomware are not reliable service providers, and you may want to avoid funding the continuous development of crypto-threats. You can rebuild your data structure using backups and archives as opposed to paying the ransom.

Except encrypting the files, this virus can make chaos to the system. Many system related files can be modified arbitrary. With this situation, computer can crash frequently and many specific programs cannot be launched. It may take much time to turn on the infected computer or run programs. This Virus is able to access the privacy of the PC user during the encryption scan. Once it collects the financial details and sensitive information from the infected computer, it will send the personal contents to the hackers who create this virus. With this information people will suffer from more losses.

How did I have this Ransomware on my computer?

There are many ways for cyber hackers to spread this warning virus to innocent people. It is comes to you unconsciously when you click some links on the website, opened unknown e-mail attachments, or download unknown “free” software and so on. Freeware download websites encourage users to use small download programs (called ‘installers’, ‘download managers’, ‘download tools’, ‘download clients’, and so on) to download the chosen software. Download apps supposedly ease the download process. However, they offer installation of third party applications with the chosen software. When you download some documents or apps which you are interesting, this virus program will also be attached to download, and run as document application. There are also set up that contain the hijacker and users are directed to those sites from links within email messages that are sent out. Some of the emails will not contain the link, but they will instead have an attachment that they will be asked to click on. Once the virus goes into the target device, it may be trying to hijack your android and lock your apps began to generate advertising revenue. We strongly recommend that you don’t do that above behavior, because they are likely to be false. No matter whatever how you get the virus, it is necessary to remove it from your computer before the arrival of more dangerous.

What is the Bitcoin? Is it risk to Use?

Bitcoin is not a currency. It is a Ponzi scheme and a good conductor for criminal or illegal activities. The central bank shows that using virtual currency schemes as an alternative payment is potentially risky to the financial system because of lack regulation and supervision, money laundering, terrorism financing, price volatility and lack adequate security. Unlike national currencies issued by central banks, bitcoin is generated by a complex chain of interactions between huge network of computers worldwide. The coin has been criticized for its anonymous character and absence of regulation, there is concern about the possible use of it for financing terrorist activities or organized crime. Chair of FED, Janet Yellen, said the institution she leads can not control a virtual currency, while countries like Russia and China have strongly restricted the use of bitcoin. we can say that the future of bitcoin is uncertain because it exists only in virtual environment and has a decentralized character. Commercial banks see a perspective in bitcoin, but do not rush to accept the payment instrument and analyze trends. But central banks have taken a tough stance against bitcoin, because the currency has a decentralized character and risks, such as money laundering, terrorist financing and anonymity.

For Bitcoin, the identity of the holder is only a code and the buyers and sellers can fully guarantee the anonymity like the following picture:

bit

So even if you pay the bicoin to the hackers, they can’t pick out your payment or other victims. They were infected with so many computers, and how to find your computer to help you restore the file?That is the risk what you need to consider.

Hello, I just got blocked by Bitcoin ransomware called WannaCry, the big locking screen takes over the whole screen of my laptop, and nothing can do to get it removed. It demands $500 Bitcoin to recover all my files on my computer. It is my first time to see this Bitcoin ransomware happening on my own device. I am afraid my data will be destroyed by this ransomware. Can you please help me remove this WannaCry ransomware?

Computer Got Attacked by WannaCry Bitcoin Ransomware? What to do?

WannaCry Bitcoin Ransomware attacked computers that were connected to the Internet and used Windows operating systems. The systems affected had not yet been updated with a security patch that Microsoft released in March. The Bitcoin ransomware locked up computers at factories, banks, government agencies and affected transport and communications systems. Cyber criminals used a security hole that still exists for computers running older versions of Windows. Computers running Windows 10 that have not yet installed the update are also at risk. Once WannaCry Bitcoin ransomware attacks the targeted computer, it soon pops up the warning message ‘ooops, your files have been encrypted!’ It notices you that your important files are encrypted. And many of your documents, photos, videos, databases and other files are no longer accessible because they have been encrypted. The worst thing is that nobody can recover your files without their decryption service. The Bitcoin ransomware usually holds ‘hostage’ the computer until you submit the ‘ransom’ payment $500 as it requests. However, paying the money did not guarantee a fix for infected computers.

I just bought a new Samsung tablet, but yesterday when I downloaded an app into tablet, something also is installed within one second, then my tablet popped up a FBI Prism warning notice asking me a penalty of $500, and FBI locked me out of tablet. No button works. I even can’t power off the tablet. I didn’t do anything wrong, but it blames me for watching illegal pornography.  Is it a real thing that FBI can charge me $500?

What to do if you download something and the FBI charges you 500$?

Recently many smartphone and tablet users reportedly wrote that their device were attacked and blocked by FBI Prism warning alert and FBI charged them 500$ as a penalty. What is it? Is it real? Users felt this warning alert was a real FBI warning as it labels the FBI logo and badge on warning page even though they didn’t do anything wrong as what it falsely blamed victims for viewing or watching forbidden pornography materials. When you see your smartphone or tablet blocked by this FBI Prism warning notification, you should notice that it actually is locked by a ransomware.

However, FBI police agency will not penalize you in this way by charging you 500$.
