Serpent is a ransomware-type virus that was first seen in the wild in early 2016. It is a successor of the Locky virus. The ransomware encrypts files on an infected computer and demands a ransom for the decryption key. It uses RSA-2048 encryption, which is virtually impossible to crack without the key.


Attackers spread this virus through email attachments and malicious links. The email usually pretends to be from a legitimate organization or person and contains either an attachment or link that, when clicked, will download and install the Serpent virus onto your computer. Once installed, Serpent will scan your computer for files to encrypt. This ransomware targets all types of files, including personal photos, videos, documents, and more. When it finds a file that it can encrypt, it will change the file extension to .Serpent, making it unusable. After that, Serpent will display a ransom note on your screen, demanding that you pay a certain amount of money (usually in Bitcoin) to get the decryption key. If you don’t pay the ransom within a certain time frame, this ransomware will delete the key and you will not be able to decrypt your files.

How much does Serpent Ransomware cost?

The average Serpent Ransomware demand is $980, paid in Bitcoin. This can vary depending on the amount of data encrypted and the infection method used. Serpent victims have reported demands as low as $300 and as high as $1500.

What can you do to prevent it?

The best way to prevent this ransomware is to be vigilant about the emails and links you click on. Do not open attachments or click on links from unknown or untrusted sources. Be especially wary of emails that contain spelling or grammatical errors, as these are often signs of a phishing email. You should also have a reputable anti-malware program installed on your computer and keep it up-to-date with the latest virus definitions. This will help to protect your computer from Serpent and other malware threats.


If you are a victim of Serpent Ransomware, we recommend that you do not pay the ransom and instead use a reputable anti-malware program to remove it from your computer and attempt to recover your files using data recovery methods.

Data Recovery Methods

There are a few different data recovery methods that may be able to recover Serpent-encrypted files. These methods will not work in all cases, but they may be worth a try if you have important files that Serpent has encrypted.


  • Method 1: Restore from a backup

If you have a backup of your Serpent-encrypted files, you can restore them from the backup. This is the best way to recover your files, as it will allow you to avoid paying the ransom and dealing with Serpent Ransomware altogether.


  • Method 2: Use file recovery software

File recovery software can sometimes recover Serpent-encrypted files. This software scans your hard drive for deleted or lost files and attempts to recover them. It is important to note that this will not work in all cases, as Serpent Ransomware deletes the original file when it encrypts it.
