Numerous reasons, actually.  You’ve managed to download an immensely devastating infection. It goes without saying you have to take action. It today’s article you’ll find all the information you need about the pesky Flyper. First of all, this parasite uses the RSA-2048 encrypting algorithm. It locks your files and adds a .flyper extension to them. As you could imagine, this file extension is malicious. What ransomware aims for is to encrypt the personal data you’ve stored on your PC. Unfortunately, Flyper takes down a huge variety of file formats. Starting with pictures and music, proceeding with MS Office documents, presentations, videos, etc. This infection practically encrypts all the important data you have. Needless to say that by doing so, Flyper Ransomware might cause you irreversible harm. Once encryption is complete, your files are renamed. You can no longer view or use the target data. That’s not even the worst part. While locking your information, the virus also creates payment instructions. It drops an instructions.txt file and modifies your desktop wallpaper. This way, Flyper Ransomware makes sure you’ve noticed its ransom note. Ransomware is quite skillful at catching your attention, don’t you think?

Why would want to contact hackers, you may ask? Because they hold the decryption key. We’ve reached the sole reason why ransomware exists in the first place.

Your files are now being held hostage so hackers could scam you. As you could imagine, there’s no guarantee you will receive a decryptor even if you make the payment.

How did I get infected with?

No one installs ransomware voluntarily, that’s a given. Hence, Flyper must have applied some secretive and stealthy technique to get downloaded. The most popular method involves spam messages. Keep in mind that sometimes hackers send malware straight to your inbox. One single click on a seemingly harmless message is all the virus needs. To prevent installation, constantly watch out for malware. This nuisance often pretends to be legitimate mail so make no mistake. Delete what you don’t trust. It is much easier to prevent installation than to uninstall a parasite afterwards. Also, ransomware might get installed with the help of a Trojan horse. That means Flyper Ransomware is probably not the only intruder on board. Check out the PC and be cautious in the future. Stay away from illegitimate torrents, random executables and unverified websites. There’s no such thing as being too careful on the Web.
