How to Remove .Fgnh File Extension Ransomware?

Fgnh virus is a new ransomware that encrypts the victim’s files with the .fgnh extension, and demands a ransom for decrypting them. Fgnh ransomware is unique in that it does not append the .fgnh extension to the original filename. Instead, it scrambles the binary content with a random cypher and then renames the file with the .fgnh extension. “fgnh” at the end of the filename is proof that your files are encrypted. For example, a file named “mypicture.jpg” will be renamed to “mypicture.jpg.fgnh”, a “wordfile.docx” file to “wordfile.docx.fgnh”, “table.pdf” to “table.pdf.fgnh”, and so on.
