Do you know what Click Me Ransomware is?
According to our cyber security specialists, Click Me Ransomware is a yet-to-be-released malicious program. It is still at the development stage, so it might undergo significant changes by the time of its release. Whatever changes are made to it, you must remove it because it is designed to encrypt your personal files and demand that you pay a ransom for the decryption password that should decrypt your files, but there is no guarantee that its developers will send you the password even after you pay. This application is all about generating income for its creators, so do not expect it to work properly even when its full version is released.
We have acquired a sample of Click Me Ransomware and infected one of our test computers. Our analysis has shown that this program is currently unable to encrypt any files whatsoever. The test sample was configured to encrypt a file at D:\ransom-flag.png. Now, unless you have a file named ransom-flag.png on your D drive, it will not encrypt anything. Still, it uses the AES encryption to encrypt the file, and that is bad news because the AES algorithm is difficult to decrypt regardless of the key length. While encrypting, this ransomware should append the encrypted files with the .hacked extension.Click Me Ransomware screenshot

It is worth noting that, when this ransomware (in its current state) infects a computer, it renders a window featuring Patrick the star from one popular cartoon. The window features a Click Me button that you have to catch because it is set to move constantly. It is sort of a mini-game that serves as a distraction. This mini game closes once the encryption is complete and Click Me Ransomware opens another window featuring various Internet memes. This window also has text in Arabic that says that you have to pay a ransom to get your files back. The sum to be paid is not specified, but then again, this ransomware has not been fully developed yet.
From the outset, it was clear that this application is just another ransomware-type infection designed to encrypt your files. There is not telling whether you could trust its developers to give you the decryption key if your computer becomes infected with Click Me Ransomware’s fully developed version. Luckily, anti-malware applications such as SpyHunter can detect and remove this new ransomware and will be able to delete its full version as well.

In non-techie terms:
Click Me Ransomware is an in-development infection that is designed to infect your PC secretly and encrypt the files stored on its drive. Once the encryption is complete, it is set to show you a ransom note in Arabic demanding that you pay money from the password to initiate the decryption process. However, we recommend that you remove this malicious program instead because you cannot trust its developers to deliver on their promise.
