Do you know what firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware is?
Hopefully, you have a backup of your files stored somewhere safe because if email@example.com Ransomware has infiltrated your system, they are already encrypted and rendered inaccessible. Our researchers say that this dangerous malware infection is the new version of a previous hit called Globeimposter Ransomware and Globe Ransomware. Although these attackers offer you proof that they can decrypt your files by decrypting one small file of your choice, why would you believe cyber criminals who just attacked your computer and took your files hostage? What is the guarantee that they will keep their promise? And, of course, why would you finance further online crimes? Unfortunately, there seems to be no way yet to restore your files without the decryption key stored on a secret remote server by these crooks. Still, we recommend that you remove firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware from your PC immediately.
This ransomware program can crawl onto your system without you realizing it until it is too late to act or to save your files from encryption. For example, it can show up in your inbox or spam folder as a spam e-mail with an attachment. Of course, it will not say "I am a dangerous spam, please run the attachment to see why." Obviously, the cyber crooks of today are much more sophisticated than their predecessors 10 or 20 years ago. This is why it is possible that even if you are not an inexperienced computer user, you may want to open this mail and its attachment. It is plainly so because this spam uses psychological tricks to persuade you that it is in your best interest to do so.
This is basically done by using local authorities or widely known company representatives as the sender of the spam as well as intriguing subject matters. This spam may claim that you gave the wrong banking details while booking a flight or hotel room, or that you have not settled an invoice. This subject is always something that people would want to open even if they feel that it cannot concern them.

In addition to becoming more careful around your mails, it is also important that you keep your browsers and Flash and Java drivers up-to-date. Cyber crooks can set up malicious websites with so-called Exploit Kits (e.g., RIG) and infect you the moment you load this site. By the time you would realize that you are on a suspicious website you did not even want to see and close the tab, your files could be encrypted already. Again, when you get to the point that you realize that you must remove email@example.com Ransomware, it is already too late.
Although this ransomware program adds a ".dream" extension to the original extension of the encrypted files, it is more like a nightmare if you consider that you could easily lose all your important files in this vicious attack. Once your files have been encrypted, this infection creates a ransom note .html file on your desktop called "how_to_back_files.html." This file contains all the information you need to know to be able to recover your encrypted files. This files tells you to send an image or text file (to firstname.lastname@example.org) that is small and unimportant so that your attackers can prove that they can decrypt your files. When you get a reply message with the decrypted file, you will also have further details about the payment. It is most likely that you have to pay in Bitcoins, but we cannot tell you the amount for now. We would like to warn you that these criminals may not send you anything after you pay. We believe that it is essential that you remove email@example.com Ransomware from your system right away.
