The Autotron Ransomware is a file-encryption Trojan based on the AutoIt scripting language. Threats of this sort are capable of causing a significant amount of damage in a small amount of time, and this is why they should not be underestimated. The good news is that the authors of AutoTRON Ransomware do not seem to be very experienced in this field so that their threatening application uses a flawed encryption method which, thankfully, could be cracked by malware experts. This means that victims of the AutoTRON Ransomware might have a fairly high chance of recovering their encrypted files without having to ask the attacker for assistance.
One of the reasons you might want to have to consult with the authors of AutoTRON Ransomware for help is that they are unlikely to be willing to help for free. The ransom note that AutoTRON Ransomware delivers after it completes its attack reveals that the victims will need to pay a hefty ransom fee if they wish to be able to get their files back. The price is not revealed and, instead, the attackers ask to be contacted by e-mailing [email protected] for further instructions. The entire ransom message can be found in the file ‘README.txt,’ which will be displayed on the desktop of the infected computer.
The advice to the victims of the AutoTRON Ransomware is not to contact the perpetrators since they will not help for free. Instead, the best thing to do would be to run a credible anti-virus tool that will guarantee the removal of all of AutoTRON Ransomware’s components. After this step is complete, it is advised to create a backup copy of all encrypted files (recognizable by the ‘.TRON’ extension added to their names), and then wait until cybersecurity experts release a decryption software for the AutoTRON Ransomware.
