In this particular case, all infected files get a new extension added to them. It can be one of the following: [email@example.com].viper1 or [firstname.lastname@example.org].viper2. Wisperado targets files with the most popular extensions such as: .bat, .bin, .bmp, .chm, .dat, .dll, .doc, .docx, .dot, .dtd, .e2x, .exe, .flt, .gif, .htm, .html, .ico, .idl, .ini, .ion, .jpg, .js, .json, .lnk, .log, .mk, .msp, .pl, .pm, .png, .pod, .ppt, .pptx, .rar, .tmp, .txt, .wav, .wb2, .wma, .wmdb, .xls, .xlsx, .xml, .xss, .zip, and many others.

Malicious programs like Wisperado@india.com Ransomware often suggest using Bitcoin wallets to pay for the decryption key that will bring your files back to normal deleting the abnormal extension. In this case, their demand is 3 Bitcoins which is around $3500. The ransom is incredibly high for ordinary ransomware applications, but since Wisperado@india.com targets big companies and their networks, there is no price big enough to save valuable corporate documents.
We strongly suggest against contacting the developers and paying a ransom. There are no guarantees that cyber criminals will actually unblock your computer and restore the data. Plus, you will become a sponsor for next attacks contributing to the development of newer viruses and malicious software like this one.
