Nemty Ransomware encryption process
In this article we would like to tell you about Nemty ransomware. This type of malwares is called ransomwares, as these programs can change the structure of your files (encrypt) in order to make you pay for decryption. The infection process always proceeds unnoticed by the user, as hackers use some tricks: they put malwares into email attachments and usually directly attack your device by brute-forcing the definite ports. When the virus is successfully injected, it begins scanning process (it searches for your media files and documents) and then encrypts suitable files. After it, your files get another extension – .nemty. It means, that your files are unreadable now, as the structure of them cannot be read by your device. Don’t try to remove Nemty encryption by yourself, as it may lead to damaging of your data. As I have already mentioned, the purpose of these attacks is to make you pay the intruders for recovering your files. That’s why they also put a special ransom note, where you can find information about the virus and the contacts of the creators. If your device is infected with Nemty Ransomware, this file will be called NEMTY-DECRYPT.txt and it will contain the following message:
