What is Nemucod-7z?

Nemucod-7z is a ransomware that encrypts your files and demands a ransom for the decryption key.

You can get Nemucod-7z by clicking on a malicious link or attachment, downloading a malicious file, or visiting a compromised website.

How does Nemucod-7z Ransomware work?

Nemucod-7z Ransomware first checks if it’s already running on your computer. If not, it drops a copy of itself in the current user’s directory and creates a mutex with a random name. Then Nemucod-7z Ransomware starts to encrypt your files. It uses a strong encryption algorithm, which makes it impossible to decrypt your files without the key. Nemucod-7z Ransomware encrypts all kinds of files, including pictures, videos, documents, etc. After encrypting your files, Nemucod-7z Ransomware creates a text file named README!!!.txt in each folder that contains encrypted files. The text file contains information about the ransom and how to pay it. Nemucod-7z Ransomware also changes your desktop wallpaper and displays a message box containing the same information.

What encryption algorithm does Nemucod-7z Ransomware use?

This ransomware uses the AES-256 encryption algorithm. This algorithm is very strong.

Also, by paying the Nemucod-7z Ransomware ransom, you would be supporting their business and encouraging them to create more ransomware.
