RaaS Ransomware is a serious computer infection which can be bought on the Tor network by anyone seeking to obtain money from people using unfair methods. This fact makes RaaS Ransomware rather exceptional, but still it is very similar to CryptoWall, which we presented some time ago. The main similarity between those ransomware infections is their ability to delete themselves after doing their jobs.

Even though you will not need to remove RaaS Ransomware, you should still take care of other malicious applications that might have entered your system alongside this infection.
