Blooper Ransomware Removal Guide

Do you know what Blooper Ransomware is?

Blooper Ransomware is an infection that can trick you into thinking that your files were encrypted and that you must pay a ransom to free them. The good news is that this infection is completely bogus, and the information it presents you with is misleading. In reality, your files are not encrypted, and by paying the humongous ransom of 500 USD, you would be wasting your savings for no good reason. At the time of research, this infection was not even capable of locking the screen to make the scam appear more believable. Therefore, if you have been introduced to the “Bloopers Encrypter 1.0” window, you can close it and see for yourself that your files were not encrypted. Although it is unlikely that this infection would fool anyone, we have to talk about it just in case someone is panicking about its ability to encrypt files. Also, it is very important that you remove Blooper Ransomware because even though it cannot do much, you do not want files created by cyber criminals to remain active on your PC.

The malicious Blooper Ransomware uses the same infiltration method that is used by most other ransomware infections: It spreads via spam emails. The installer of the infection is introduced to you as a normal file, and you open it without realizing that an infection is executed. Once the infection is in, it immediately shows a fake message indicating that your files are being encrypted. Immediately after that, a pop-up suggesting that your files are now encrypted appears. You cannot close this pop-up, but it disappears when you click “OK.” This is when the main window called “Bloopers Encrypter 1.0” shows up. This window displays a timer that suggests you only have 5 hours to pay the ransom of $500. This ransom must be transferred to 14pdrBSvJYvrQ3QWka4sQXpyc9NJg64o7V, and, according to the latest data, no one has transferred money to this Bitcoin Address yet. The ransom message itself is completely bogus, and you should not believe that your files were encrypted using the RSA-2048 key or that they will be deleted if you do not pay the ridiculous ransom.

It appears that the developer of Blooper Ransomware has attempted to make it look like the infamous WanaCry Ransomware (also known as Wana Decrypt0r Ransomware). Although the interface of the main window might look similar, it is just a trick to make you think that a serious infection has invaded your operating system. If you encounter ransomware, the first thing we recommend doing is checking your files. If they are encrypted, you can look at the information provided to you by cyber criminals and research the situation further to find the best solution. However, if files are not encrypted, it should be obvious that someone is trying to scam you. Hopefully, you realize that right away.

Since Blooper Ransomware is not a real infection, you do not need to think about how to decrypt your files and when to eliminate the threat. You need to do it right away! If you have executed the infection yourself, you probably know where the launcher is, and if you do, you should be able to delete Blooper Ransomware manually. If you are unable to identify this infection, employing anti-malware software is the best thing you can do. It will automatically remove Bloopers Encrypter in no time, and if other infections are active, they will be eliminated as well. Needless to say, if you keep this software installed, malicious threats will not invade your operating system again.

Remove Blooper Ransomware

  1. Identify the {random name}.exe file that is the launcher of the ransomware.
  2. Right-click this file and choose Delete.
  3. Right-click the recycle bin and click Empty Recycle Bin.
  4. Perform a full system scan to check if you need to delete other infections.

In non-techie terms:

Has the malicious Blooper Ransomware invaded your operating system and is trying to convince you to pay $500 just to recover your files? If that is the case, we have to warn you that this infection is bogus, and your personal files are most likely safe and sound. The devious Bloopers Encrypter was developed to scam users, and we are hopeful that it will not succeed because all it takes is to check if files were encrypted. Deleting Blooper Ransomware is very important because although it is not a serious infection, you do not want cyber criminals anywhere near your operating system. Because your PC is unprotected, we suggest installing anti-malware software to automatically erase the infection, as well as to reinforce overall protection.
