Ominisphere ransomware encryption process
Omnisphere is a new type of file-encrypting ransomware, the aim of which, as it can be understood, is to make you pay for the restoring of the encrypted files. The process of infection with this ransomware can hardly be noticed, as hackers usually injects this malicious code into email attachments, installators and even create fake software. Moreover, hackers can inject this virus directly with the help of brute forcing of open ports. Once Omnisphere is injected into a system, it begins the encryption process, that we can divide into two parts: it seeks for the appropriate files (it can be documents of different extensions, like .doc and media files, like .jpg ones) and then the virus changes the structure of them. As the result your files are unreadable, as the virus has changed the extensions of your files to .omnisphere ones. Don’t try to remove Omnisphere ransomware encryption by the manual ways, as it may damage your files without a possibility of restoring them. Moreover, the virus creates a special ransom note, that is called !DECRYPT_MY_FILE_OS.txt and it contains the following information:
