UnblockUPC Ransomware was first discovered in May 2017. The ransomware was designed to target computer systems running the Windows operating system.


UnblockUPC is a file-encrypting ransomware variant that uses the AES-256 encryption algorithm to encrypt files on the infected computer. This ransomware will append the “.unblocked” extension to encrypted files.

What files does it encrypt?

UnblockUPC will encrypt common file types such as:


– .docx

– .xlsx

– .jpg

– .png

– .mp4

– .avi

But these are the most common file types that will be targeted. UnblockUPC may also encrypt other types of files.

Why UnblockUPC is dangerous?

It is a dangerous ransomware variant that can cause serious financial damage to individuals and businesses. UnblockUPC will encrypt files on the infected computer and demand a ransom payment in order to decrypt the files.
