About 7zipper ransomware
7zipper ransomware is a dangerous virus developed by cyber criminals. They try to make money by spreading this malicious software and infecting computer.
Classic order of events when 7zipper ransomware enters your system:
- Malware software runs a scan to inspect all files stored on your hard drive. It is looking for files that could be locked. And that is basically any common file, such as images, video and audio files or text documents.
- Once the can is over 7zipper ransomware locks those files adding .7zipper extension to all of them. From now on you can’t open them. Also, that is a clear sign that your computer was hit by 7zipper ransomware.
- Unlike other similar ransomware infections, 7zipper ransomware is not encrypting file by file. Instead of that, it puts all of your most important files into on folder and locks that certain folder with a difficult password. So in order to get into the folder, you will have to enter the password.
- You will notice a text document – so called ransom note, on your desktop. It says that you should contact cyber criminals via email address at email@example.com
Even though it’s not clear how much you will be asked to pay, we highly suggest not to do that. First of all, there are no guarantees that your files will be decrypted even if you actually pay the ransom – never trust cyber criminals. Secondly, by paying the ransom you support hackers and that’s not a thing you would want to do. Note: when you remove the ransomware virus (either manually or automatically), do not forget to remove the ransom note from your desktop.
Unfortunately, currently there are no valid and free files decrypter for 7zipper ransomware, but cyber security experts are working on it and we will keep you updated.
Update: the decrypter is now available at here: link. You can download it for free and successfully decrypt your files.
There’s still a chance to retrieve your files without paying the ransom – you can restore your system to the previous date or perform system restore. However, in order to be able to do that you have to have a valid copy of your hard drive that was made before the date of infection.
