‘.kraussmfz File Extension’ Ransomware

The ‘.kraussmfz File Extension’ Ransomware is a file-locker, which might be linked to the _readme Ransomware, a dangerous cyber threat that was used in few attacks that targeted specific companies and institutions previously. Unfortunately, this is terrible news since the _readme Ransomware is impossible to decrypt for free, and it is very likely that the same applies to ‘.kraussmfz File Extension’ Ransomware. If you have been infected by this file-encryption Trojan, then there is a significant chance that the majority of your files are now inaccessible. Unfortunately, the only reliable way to recover from a ‘.kraussmfz File Extension’ Ransomware’s attack is to restore the locked files from a safe backup.

Since the ‘.kraussmfz File Extension’ Ransomware also might be used in targeted attacks, it is possible that its authors might rely on thoroughly researched and developed infection techniques such as fake emails directed towards specific company departments or employees. It is important to make all workers with access to the Web familiar with the threat that ransomware poses, and take the required measures to ensure that they will not download dubious files from the Internet. Naturally, all company computers should be protected by an up-to-date anti-virus that will keep harmful files away.

If the ‘.kraussmfz File Extension’ Ransomware is not stopped, it may encrypt a huge number of files quickly such as documents, images, spreadsheets, archives, invoices, databases, etc. Whenever a file is locked, the ransomware will modify its name by adding the ‘.kraussmfz’ extension. Last but not least, the ‘.kraussmfz File Extension’ Ransomware will provide the ransom note ‘kraussmfz_readme.txt,’ which contains file-decryption instructions. Unfortunately, the decryptor is not free, and the attackers demand to be paid in exchange for their services. They have not specified a price, but they have supplied the emails [email protected] and [email protected] for contact.

Although the ransom sum is not mentioned, you can rest assured that the attackers will not be willing to give their decryptor for free, negotiating with criminals is not recommended so that we advise you to disregard their demands. Instead, you should use an anti-virus tool to get rid of the infected files, and then restore the locked files from a backup or with the use of data recovery software. Sadly, the latter method delivers satisfying results rarely.
