TowerWeb is a type of malicious software that can encrypt your files and demand a ransom for the decryption key. It may spread through email attachments or compromised websites. Once your computer is infected, it will scan your hard drive for specific types of files to encrypt. Once it has encrypted these files, it will add the “.towerweb” extension to the filename. The ransomware will then display a ransom note on your screen, instructing you on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your files.

History

TowerWeb was first discovered in December 2016. We believe it to be a variant of Locky Ransomware.

The TowerWeb Ransomware attack hit an estimated 10,000 computers in December 2016.

This malware uses the AES-256 encryption algorithm to encrypt files on the infected computer. The ransom note that is displayed after it completed the encryption process demands 0.5 Bitcoin for the decryption key.

TowerWeb is not just a threat to your computer, it is also a threat to your privacy. The ransomware will collect information about you and your computers, such as your IP address, geographical location, and operating system. Then they sent this information to the attackers, who may use it to target you with other attacks or fraud. TowerWeb is a serious threat to both your computer and your privacy. You should remove this virus from your computer as soon as possible.

How to avoid it?

You should take some basic security precautions. First, you should always have a backup of your important files. This way, if your computer does get infected with ransomware, you will not lose any data. Second, you should install an anti-malware program on your computer and keep it up-to-date. Anti-malware programs can detect and remove ransomware before it has a chance to encrypt your files. Third, you should be careful when opening email attachments or clicking on links in emails. Finally, you should never download programs from untrustworthy websites.

Is TowerWeb still active?

As we said, this ransomware was first discovered in December 2016 and there have been no recent reports of it. However, this does not mean that it is no longer active. TowerWeb may have just changed its tactics or might only be active in certain parts of the world.

If attackers have infected you with ransomware, we recommend that you do not pay the ransom. There is no guarantee that you will get the decryption key even if you do pay the ransom. Moreover, paying the ransom only encourages the attackers and funds their future attacks.

Paying the ransom is not the only option if you are infected, there are a few things you can do. First, try to use a backup to restore your files. If you have a backup of your files, you can restore them without paying the ransom. Second, you can use a free decryption tool, if one free decryption tool is available. Finally, you can reformat your hard drive and reinstall your operating system. This will remove the ransomware from your computer, but it will also delete all of your files.

To remove TowerWeb from your computer, you can use an anti-malware program. Anti-malware programs are designed to scan for and remove malware from your computer. TowerWeb Ransomware is a type of malware, so an anti-malware program should be able to remove it. We recommend using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware because it is effective at removing it and other types of malware.

So, is there a public decryption tool?

At the moment, there is no public decryption tool available for TowerWeb ransomware.

If Malwarebytes do not have a free decryption tool available yet, it may be in the future. You can check their website or social media accounts for updates on whether they have a free decryption tool available.

Use file recovery software

Another option is to use file recovery software.

The ransomware will delete your files after it has encrypted them, so you may be able to recover them using SalvageData data recovery software.
