Ransomware is a very malicious type of software that, by infecting your computer, gives the cybercriminals behind it the ability to encrypt your files and thus make it impossible for you to open them or use them. When the encryption attack completes, the virus launches a popup window asking you to pay a ransom in exchange for a secret decryption key which is supposed to reverse the applied encryption algorithm. The payment is usually requested in a virtual currency (bitcoins for example), which ensures that the criminals remain anonymous.

One of the most recent Ransomware infections is called .Vesad. This threat relies on the moment of surprise and, therefore, it usually has no visible symptoms which can give it away. It secretly sneaks into the system and immediately launches its file-encryption process in the background. After blocking the access to the personal files stored on the infected computer, this malware displays a message on the victim’s screen, asking them to make an immediate payment of a certain amount of money if they want to regain access to their valuable information.

The shock, the fear of losing their files, and the need to recover the data, are some of the factors that cause many of the users affected by .Vesad to pay the ransom. Here, in “How to remove guide”, however, we want to give you some tips on how to remove the infection and recover your computer without paying anything. That’s why below we have prepared a detailed Removal Guide equipped with a professional removal tool and some file-recovery suggestions that do not involve paying ransom to anyone.

How does .Vesad Virus File distribute itself?

.Vesad, .Muslat, .Heroset ,.Pidon are malwares that can be secretly incorporated inside another file or program that looks appealing to the user and invites them to download it. This infection could also be found inside different attachments, files sent via emails, videos or pages of doubtful origin, or even in fake program update requests, ads and spam.

Once the Ransomware has infected the computer, it presents its victim with a warning that states that if the money isn’t paid, the files will remain locked for good. The contents of this warning may vary but the ultimate goal is to instill uncertainty and fear in the victim, and to give them the payment instructions that they are supposed to follow. Fulfilling the demands of the hackers, however, is not a good idea because even if you follow all of their instructions, there is still no guarantee that you will regain access to your files. With the active infection on your computer, the crooks may decide to extract more money out of you or simply disappear without sending you the decryption key needed for the restoration of your data. That’s why, if your computer suffers the attack of a Ransomware like .Vesad, here, in “How to remove guide”, we will try to help you to remove the infection and recover some of the encrypted information through alternative means.
