What is Locker virus?

Locker virus is a novel ransomware virus that encrypts data for money compensation. Just like other viruses, it spreads through spam emails and other fake and cheap advertisement methods created by cyber criminals that aim to gain any profit. Locker works by encrypting your stored files just after it invades your system and renames the files by adding another extension in a critical time for the victims to notice that their PCs are invaded.

The sole purpose of this encryption is to make you pay some ransom fees. Cyber criminals advanced tremendously in the past years and were able to make asymmetric encryption. Such encryption generates two keys, an encryption key, and a decryption key, and they are stored securely by contacting them via email. Accordingly, the developers offer to decrypt your files in exchange for some fees by proving such capability by decrypting one of your files. The estimate of these fees is in the range of 0.1 Bitcoins to avoid tracing the money with a time margin of 72 hrs. Otherwise, you will have to pay 1.0 Bitcoins. One more thing worthy of notice is that many hackers take the money from you and stop contacting you, or even ask for more money later, which enters you in a loop hole. There are no tools today that are capable of eliminating Rapid, so the only way to retain your files is by having a normal backup.
