In this article, we will be discussing Vortex Ransomware. We will go over what it is, how it works, and how you can protect yourself from it.

What is Vortex Ransomware?

Vortex is a type of malware that encrypts your files and demands a ransom for the decryption key. It targets both individuals and businesses in an attempt to extort money from the victim. Vortex is believed to be a variant of the Hidden Tear Ransomware, which is an open-source ransomware that was released in 2015.

How does Vortex Ransomware work?

It works by first encrypting your files with AES-256 encryption. Once your files are encrypted, it will display a ransom note that instructs you on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your files. The ransomware demands that the victim pay 0.5 Bitcoin, which is currently worth over USD 3,000. The malware also states that the ransom must be paid within 72 hours, or the price will double.

How can I protect myself from Vortex?

There are a few things you can do to protect yourself from Vortex Ransomware and other types of ransomware. First, you should always have a backup of your important files. This way, if your files are encrypted, you can restore them from the backup. Second, you should install an antivirus program and keep it up-to-date. Antivirus programs can detect and remove Vortex Ransomware before it has a chance to encrypt your files. Finally, you should be cautious when opening email attachments and only download files from trusted sources.

How do I understand that Vortex encrypted my files?

There are a few indicators that it has encrypted your files. First, you may see a ransom note. Second, you may notice that your files have a new extension, such as .vortex or .locked. Finally, you may be unable to open your files. If you see any of these indicators, it is important to take action immediately and remove it from your computer.

How can I remove it?

If you have ransomware on your computer, you should use an antivirus program to remove it. Antivirus programs can detect and delete Vortex, as well as other types of malware.


If it has infected you, you should not pay the ransom. There is no guarantee that you will get the decryption key even if you do pay the ransom.

Is there a public decryption tool?

No, there is no public decryption tool available for Vortex Ransomware. If you have been infected with this ransomware, your best option is to restore your files from a backup.


If you don’t have a backup, you can try using file recovery software to recover your files. However, there is no guarantee that this will work.
