How to remove Aram ransomware and recover files

Complete tips to delete Aram ransomware

Aram ransomware is a ransomware-type virus and a part of VoidCrypt ransomware group. The malware encrypts stored files, changes their filenames and creates the Decrypt-info.txt file (ransom note). It renames the filenames of the encrypted files with [email protected] email address, a string of random characters and the “.Aram” extension.

For example, Aram renames 1.jpg to “1.jpg.[[email protected]][MJ-XI8964723051].Aram”, “2.jpg” to “2.jpg.[[email protected]][MJ-XI8964723051].Aram”, and so on. The ransom note informs the victims that their files have been encrypted. To decrypt them, they have pay ransom in Bitcoin.

Before that, they have to initiate the files recovery by sending prvkey.txt.key  (for example, “prvkey3.txt.key”) file from “ProgramData” folder in C: or another drive to  [email protected] or [email protected] After sending this file, the victims will likely to receive the instructions on how much and where is to pay for the decryption tool.

 Unfortunately, this is true that there exists a unique decryption tool without which the files cannot be decrypted. It is also true that the crooks are the only people who have the right decryption tool. Despite that, we strongly advise against paying/ contacting the crooks under any circumstances. These people will never provide you the decryption tool even if you fulfill all their demands.

The sole solution for the files recovery is to use existing backup you have. If not, once check if Shadow Copies exist. If Aram ransomware deleted this, rely on third party tools or wait for the official decryption tool from security researchers. Copy the encrypted files to some external device and then remove Aram ransomware from the system.

Since the files do not contain any malicious code, you can use this copy to external device to recover the files using the official decryption tool when available. Meanwhile, you can attempt to recover the files using stated alternatives provided. Below the post, you will find both Aram ransomware removal instruction and the files recovery guide.

How did Aram ransomware enter my system?

Crooks distribute malware through emails, Trojans, fake software updaters, software cracking tools and questionable sources for downloading software, files. Emails used to distribute malware contain malicious attachments or website links. Crooks behind them attempt to trick people into opening malicious files.

When users use fake software updaters, those tools inject malware instead of installing fixes, updates or exploit software vulnerabilities. Trojans are malicious malware especially designed to cause chain infection. Questionable sources for downloading files and programs are used to trick people into opening malicious download. Software cracking tools infect system by allegedly bypassing activation key of paid software.
