FadeSoft Ransomware removal guide

FadeSoft is a malicious application you definitely don’t want to see on your computer as it uses asymmetric encryption algorithms which make it more difficult to deal with the consequences of the attack. FadeSoft Ransomware encryption method is based on AES-256 and RSA-2048 encryption algorithms. With the last one specifically being asymmetric, two different types of keys are created for encryption and decryption – public and private accordingly. Manual decryption is impossible.

If you don’t have an antivirus or\and anti-malware programs on your PC, then might not even notice that your security is compromised. After the encryption process, FadeSoft will inform you with a pop-up window. This malware attacks most popular types of files on the infected PC: .jpg, .jpeg, .docx, .doc, .xls, .mp4, .avi, and many other.

Malicious programs like FadeSoft Ransomware often suggest using Bitcoin wallets to pay for the decryption key that will bring your files back to normal. In this case, hackers promise to fix your files for 0.33 Bitcoin implying that there is no other way to decrypt the data. Furthermore, if the ransom is not paid within 4 days after infection they are will be deleted from the developer’s server.

It is important to understand where did it come from to prevent stepping on the same rake twice. According to our analysis and reports we receive, this locker infiltrates your computer via spam emails from the unknown sender. It comes in the form of suspicious attachment (it can be a text file, video, picture and so on). If you receive an email from the unknown source with a strange message and suspicious attachment, don’t rush to open it. Do not download and run executable files or applications from your inbox. There is a high chance of catching a virus, worm, Trojan, etc. by simply clicking infectious links. Fake installers and software updaters can also become a portal for the virus to sneak in.

You can deal with the FadeSoft Ransomware threat in two ways – manually or use a trusted anti-malware program. We would recommend the second option to prevent accidental harm done to your system in the process. File-encrypting programs like this one are often disguised as safe-looking files. Deleting wrong files might cause additional problems with your OS. For more information, please, continue to read the paragraph below.
