How did I get infected with?

The .Fgui ransomware virus is distributed via spam or malicious web pages. It is also spread through malicious email attachments. The virus can travel inside of file-sharing networks and P2P clients. There are many ways that a victim can be infected by this new virus, but the most prominent one is via fake email attachments containing false files with DOC, XLS, and other bogus extensions. These types of emails are regularly sent to millions of users from all over the globe. The cumbersome thing about this virus is that it can start encrypting files when the victim accesses their PC. This is because the ransomware infection is trojanized and installed as a startup process, so that every time the victim turns on their computer, they’re forced to wait while their machine reboots and displays multiple fake warning messages. The virus then scans the files that are available on your machine and encrypts them.

Why is .Fgui File Extension dangerous?

Ransomware is particularly dangerous for two reasons:

  • First, it encrypts your data and locks them away behind strong password protection.
  • Second, the hackers behind ransomware may not unlock your files even after you pay the ransom.

Since Fgui ransomware is designed to encrypt your files only, it is not very difficult to eliminate it without having to pay a ransom. The “encryption” of particular files is just the modification of their names and the addition of an extension; therefore, if you rename those files the RaaS will no longer encrypt them. Your computer will not be able to access those encrypted files even after the removal of Fgui ransomware. For this reason, it is recommended that you back up your files using a backup program before the infection. The encrypted files refused access by the RaaS can be moved to a new directory and given non-encrypted names or simply deleted if there are no other copies elsewhere on your device. The safest thing you can do is remove Fgui ransomware from your computer.

Do not pay for Fgui ransom!

Please, try to use the available backups, or Decrypter tools
