Do you know what Blue Eagle Ransomware is?
It is actually possible to prevent dangerous malware infections like Blue Eagle Ransomware from slithering onto your computer. This new ransomware program may enter your system when you open the attachment of a spam e-mail. In other words, it is actually you who initiates this malicious attack. So if you learn how such a threat may enter your computer, you may be able to avoid the next attack simply by steering clear of it. These cyber criminals try to extort such a high ransom fee from the victims that they most likely created this infection to attack bigger corporations rather than individual users. But it is still possible that you infect your system with this threat. Unfortunately, our researchers have not found any free tool on the web yet that you could use to recover your encrypted files. Such a tool may emerge in the near future but there are no guarantees, of course, just like in the case of paying the ransom fee and getting the promised password. All in all, we strongly recommend that you remove Blue Eagle Ransomware immediately after noticing it. For the details, please read on.
As we have already mentioned, this ransomware may be spread in spam e-mails as a malicious attachment. However, it is not that easy to spot this spam because it may seem to you entirely legitimate. Apart from your general spam filter you should have your own filter, i.e., yourself, to be able to recognize e-mails that may be unreliable. Whenever you have doubt about an e-mail you should definitely open it and download its attachment. This ransomware infection may be spread as an image attachment that is supposed to be a picture of an unpaid invoice that you are overdue with. But it can be any other important-looking issue that would make most of us click to view the attached file. An important detail to know about this distribution method is that once you decide to see the contents of the attached file, you can say farewell to your files because the unstoppable encryption of your files starts up right away and you cannot delete Blue Eagle Ransomware anymore without losing your files.
There are other alternative ways too to spread this dangerous ransomware but we cannot yet confirm any of these in the case of this particular threat. However, we do advise you to keep your browsers and drivers always updated because if you were to land on a malicious webpage that was created with Exploit Kits, you could drop this infection in no time without your noticing it. Such a page just needs to load in your browser and the malicious scripts on this page can trigger the drop right away. But you may also drop such a vicious program if you click on corrupt third-party ads on suspicious websites. Remember that having to remove Blue Eagle Ransomware always comes with a price.
This ransomware infection changes the file names it encrypts and add a ".SaherBlueEagleRansomware" to them. After the encryption, it changes your background to display its ransom note message. This screen informs you that your computer has been hacked and your files have been encrypted. You are warned not to break up your Internet connection as you would lose the unique signature your PC has and thus, the opportunity to get your files decrypted, too. You are asked to pay 1.25 Bitcoins, which is about 7,700 dollars at this time. This is an extremely high ransom fee that is mostly used when bigger companies are hit. In any case, we do not recommend that you pay any amount to cyber criminals for that matter. If you would like to restore your system and use it safely, we suggest that you do not hesitate to remove Blue Eagle Ransomware.
It is important to mention that you should not try to transfer your backed up clean files before you clean your system first. You can use our instructions below this article if you prefer to take matters into your own hands. Nevertheless, this may not be for everyone. Therefore, we ask you to consider installing a proper malware remover, such as SpyHunter, which can automatically eliminate all known threats from your PC and safeguard it from future infections.

In non-techie terms:
Blue Eagle Ransomware, or BlueEagle Ransomware, is a new nightmare for computer users because this ransomware can encrypt all your personal files and extort an extremely high ransom fee from you in exchange for the decryption.
