ODCODC ransomware virus

What is ransomware and how it wokrs.

Lately so many new ransomwares has been thrown and developing decryptors is getting harder and harder. Based on security researchers analysis ODCODC ransomware is decryptable, however a working tool has not yet been developed. Ransomware is getting more popular because it is profitable, forcing victims to pay large amounts of money. How it works is simple but for victims not familiar with ransomware can be confusing. Users still call it a virus, however it is not. Ransomware is a malicious software (malware) which can come with a virus. Furthermore it will lock users data by encrypting valuable files or restrict access to the computer system. The notorious ransom behavior is well know as its hijack your files and then demand them for a certain price and there will be no negotiation. The .odcodc file extension is possible through RSA-2048 encryption algorithm. Most likely victims were infected with ODCODC ransomware is through spam email attachments. Of course there are lots of ways to distribute such attack serving users with bad news. Another popular way is file sharing, commonly as a torrent file  and also trojan horse. As a recommendation we advise you not to pay the ransom, simply because you risk losing money and still be stuck with encrypted files. The damage is already done and now you have to find a way to recover. Consider getting any anti-malware tool to remove the virus and then decrypt files. ODCODC ransomware seems to be related to Rakhni or Troldesh ransomware which are decryptable and may be able to use tools that decrypt these two.

Now that you have been infected you have a few options:

Many suggest that you simply pay and hope that you will get all off your data back. However in this case you risk losing money and still being stuck with crypted files. We do not recommend this way simply because you will support the work of hackers and the more money thay get the stronger they will become.

The best option for you is if you have a backup, wipe your hard drive and perform system restore.
