Revolution ransomware is a malicious crypto ransomware that aims at targeting the computer and the files that are stored in it. It makes entry in the operating system by opening an unreliable email attachment. Once it makes its successful entry in the operating system then the malware starts encrypting the file by using RSA-1024 cipher for data encryption and then adds .REVOLUTION file extension to every encrypted file.
After completion of file encryption then it saves a file on the desktop known as InfoFiles.txt also known as ransom note. In this note entire information is given on how to make the ransom payment if user wants to get their files back. Due to this reason this virus can be known as extortion tool that aims and takes the users file hostage for ransom.
The ransom note also contains an alternate contact email address which the victims can write to – email@example.com. Fraudsters suggest that the victim has to pay the ransom within 72 hours; otherwise, all data will be lost.
But it would be better not to make any ransom payment rather opt for Revolution ransomware removal as soon as possible.
