Delete .Oldbat File Ransomware from Computer
.Oldbat File Ransomware is a new file-encrypting program that enters the computer through freeware downloads, spam emails, visiting malicious websites etc. and ruins the computer badly. Once installed, it locks your important files and data stored in memory and asks to pay some amount of money to get them back. This Ransomware targets all your files such as images, videos, audios, games, word documents, PDFs etc. makes you unable to access them. When you try to open a corrupt file, you will fail. After encrypting the data, it drops a ransom note on the desktop in which you are informed about the situation and provided the data recovery instruction. .Oldbat File Ransomware developers provide an email id with the ransom note to contact them and get the instructions about retrieving the files. They state that the only way you can get the files back is by using a decryption key which only they can provide. It is easy to guess that you will have to pay some amount of money in order to get the key.
.Oldbat File Ransomware keeps threatening you by delivering warning messages asking to pay the ransom within 48 to 96 hours. After that the decryption code, kept on their server will be deleted and thus you will not able to retrieve the corrupt data again. You don’t want to lose your files and may consider dealing with them, but we advise you to not give them money because it’s not guaranteed that the files will be reopened once the payment is submitted. What will you do if the decryption code doesn’t work? You paid the ransom and still can’t access the files.
