All you need to know about YourRansom Ransomware, you will find here.


YourRansom is a dangerous virus that can encrypt your personal files and demand a ransom for their decryption. It is related to the YourRansom Family of Ransomware. This virus was first spotted in the wild on May 11, 2017. Since then, there have been several variants of this ransomware released, with YourRansom 2.0 and 3.0 being the most recent ones.

It is distributed through email attachments, fake updates, and malicious websites. Once it infiltrates your system, YourRansom will scan your hard drive for specific file types and encrypt them using a strong encryption algorithm. It will then append the “.YourRansom” extension to the encrypted files and create a text file named “YOUR_FILES_ARE_ENCRYPTED.TXT” in each affected folder. This text file will contain the ransom demand, as well as instructions on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your files. The ransomware will also change your desktop wallpaper to an image that displays the same information.


The amount of the ransom varies, but it is usually between $100 and $1000. The attackers may also threaten to delete your files if you don’t pay within a certain time, usually 24 or 48 hours.


We strongly advise you not to pay the ransom, as there is no guarantee that you will get your files back. In fact, by paying the ransom, you are only funding the malicious activities of the cybercriminals behind this virus.

Instead, we recommend that you remove it from your system with a powerful anti-malware program and then try to restore your files from a backup.

In case you do not have a backup, you can try using data recovery software. SalvageData data recovery software has helped many victims of YourRansom Ransomware recover their files. We recommend that you download and install the software on a clean computer, then connect the infected hard drive to it as an external drive. After the software recognizes the drive, select the type of files you want to recover and let the scanning process begin. Once the scan is complete, you will be able to preview the recovered files and save them to a safe location.


A public decryption tool is not currently available for this ransomware. However, it may be possible that it will be released in the future. Therefore, we recommend you do research and keep an eye out for any news regarding YourRansom Ransomware decryption. If you find a free decryptor, be sure to scan it with a reliable anti-malware program before using it, as some malicious actors may try to distribute fake decryptors that contain malware.
