How to remove TurkStatik ransomware and decrypt .ciphered files

What is .ciphered?

Recently, the new internet threat has been found. It’s called TurkStatik ransomware. This virus doesn’t belong to any already known virus family and can be described as the file-encryption ransomware. It’s a unique virus, but at the same time it has a lot in common with such families, as STOP(DJVU) ransomware family:ZOBM, ROTE, MBED, PEET, GROD, MOSK, TOEC, NAKW, Derp, COOT, Nols, Werd, Ndarod, Leto, Bora and RECO; and DHARMA file-encryption ransomware family the members of which are: KHARMA, newer version of MONEY, Money, Oo7 and CASH. These viruses infect computers by the means of backdoors in the operating system and software. Hackers inject the code of the virus into a harmless file and then spread it by the means of email attachments, torrents and free file sharing services. These files can hardly be differed from the harmless ones and it’s easy to become infected with it. If your system has been accidentaly infected with TurkStatik ransomware, don’t try to decrypt .ciphered files manually! Every changing of the encrypted file can corrupt it permanently!

TurkStatik ransomware encryption process.

Once TurkStatik gets into the system, it immediately begins the encryption process, that can be described as the two-step one. At first, the virus needs to find files suitable for encryption. This virus can modify only definite file formats and among them are all formats of documents and a great variety of media files. Once the files have been founded it begins to modify their structures and makes them unreadable. As the result, the files have new .ciphered extension. Then it creates the ransom note, that is called README_DONT_DELETE.txt. The message is written in Turkish and aims at definite country, but it can possibly infect everyone. The message aims at forcing the user to pay the ransom for decryption services, that hackers offer. We strongly recommend you to avoid all contacts with them. they can easily make the situation much worse. That’s why we’ve prepared the detailed guide to help you.
