Do you know what Ordinypt Ransomware is?
Ordinypt Ransomware is another name of the German ransomware infection Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware. It is not one of those prevalent threats that affect hundreds of thousands of computers, but it might still enter your computer and cause problems to you one day if you are not cautious enough because it is actively distributed via spam emails as a harmless-looking attachment. It goes without saying that other distribution methods might be used to spread it too. The entrance of this ransomware infection is always a nightmare because it goes to encrypt files it finds stored on compromised machines right away. According to specialists, it is more likely that it destroys users’ files instead of locking them, which suggests that it might be impossible to unlock them even if you send money to the creator of this ransomware infection. Yes, Ordinypt Ransomware does not differ much from other ransomware-type infections – it also demands money after encrypting users’ files. You should not send a cent to cyber criminals because you do not know whether you could decrypt your files after making a payment. Also, we are sure that malware developers will never stop developing new harmful threats if they always get what they want from users.
If Ordinypt Ransomware ever enters your computer, you will find your files encrypted, we are sure. It does not touch certain directories, e.g. %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%, %WINDIR%, or %PROGRAMDATA%, but it encrypts .lnk, .gif, .avi, .mkv, .java, .pem, .csv, .json, .bat, .ico, .atn, .7zip, .webm, .mp4, .txt, .rtf, .html., .dat, and a bunch of other files in all other directories. Ransomware infections ruin the majority of users’ files following the successful entrance, which is why they are considered extremely dangerous threats. Ordinypt Ransomware not only encrypts files, but also drops a ransom note Wo_sind_meine_Dateien.html in directories with encrypted files to inform users what has happened to their files and what their next moves should be if they want to get them back. Specifically speaking, users are told that they need “special software and its decryption key” to unlock the encrypted data. Cyber criminals behind Ordinypt Ransomware are not going to give them to users for free. Instead, they need to purchase the decryption tool from cyber criminals for 0.12 Bitcoin. At today’s price, it is approximately 985 USD. Crooks will take your money for sure, but we cannot guarantee that they will give you the tool to unlock your files, so, in our opinion, you should not pay the ransom to them. It might be impossible to unlock files in a different way, but you will, at least, not give them your money for nothing.
Specialists say that Ordinypt Ransomware is mainly distributed via spam emails. The launcher of this ransomware infection is usually disguised as a .pdf document, e.g. Viktoria Henschel - Bewerbung - November.pdf.exe or Viktoria Henschel - Lebenslauf - November.pdf.exe. As you can see, the .pdf file also has the .exe extension appended, but, sadly, users often do not notice it and, consequently, open the file without fear. This ransomware infection is not the only one you might allow to enter your computer if you keep opening attachments from spam emails. Therefore, you should not open any spam emails and their attachments. Our security specialists say that users should not click on suspicious links too because they might initiate the installation of malicious software by doing that.
Ordinypt Ransomware does not create any new files on compromised machines. Also, it does not make other significant modifications on victim’s systems in order to work properly. Because of this, its removal should be quick and easy. Sadly, we cannot promise that it will be easy to unlock those affected files. Do not worry; it does not necessarily mean that you have lost them forever – you can restore them for free if you have a backup of your personal data.

In non-techie terms:
Ordinypt Ransomware is a harmful infection that has been developed for money extortion by cyber criminals, so its entrance is always a nightmare for users because it encrypts the most valuable files it finds on compromised machines and then demands money straightaway. The size of the ransom it asks is not very small, so you should not pay cyber criminals behind it a cent. Instead, remove the ransomware infection fully immediately so that it would not have an opportunity to lock more files on your computer.
