Osiris ransomware happens to be the latest version of destructive Locky file-encrypting infection. Since the introduction of the previous installment – Odin virus – the developers decided to bring in some fresh changes. Besides shifting from Norse to Egyptian mythology, the new version contains other improvements. It is crucial to get acquainted with the newest version to avoid encountering this cyber misfortune.
Osiris ransomware is distinguishable for its tendency to append .osiris file extension to each affected file. Documents, music, image, video, and other crucial files risk getting encrypted. The fraudsters exploit the combination of AES-128 and RSA-2048 algorithms which only strengthens the force of the malware. Due to such feature, decrypting the data without the matching private key is nearly impossible.
Furthermore, the latest version tries to infiltrate the computers via fake delivery and invoice messages. In the former case, if you receive the message of an undelivered email and it contains .xls or tdb, .zk extensions, do not rush to open the email as you may only activate the crypto-malware. Even if you open the attachment, there is a slight chance to escape the severe outcomes by not enabling the macro settings because the notification will ask you to.
In case the ransomware has already started rampaging on the computer, start Osiris removal right away. A security application will serve as the tool banishing this infection from the system. Keep in mind that anti-virus or anti-spyware applications do not decode the files. For that, you will need additional tools. It is also possible to recover the data from backups or shadow volume copies. Previous versions of Locky have tried to delete them in advance, but in the case of the current version, you might stand a chance to retrieve the files by using the copies.
