NEW! WildFire Locker ransomware append .wflx extension HOW_TO_UNLOCK_FILES_README_(6de99ef7c7).txt

WildFire Locker ransomware was recently discovered. Apparently it looks like that some of the anti-malware programs did not detect the ransom attack yet. Which means that developers included something new to distribute it without been detected and encrypt files silently.

It is unbelievable how ransomware developers are coming with new and more dangerous innovations daily. In closer inspection WildFire Locker ransomware is not widely spread and maybe it is not going to be, but who knows. Once computer system is infected with ransomware it will suffer the consequences. Ransomware will lock the whole system or encrypt individual files. All of the ransom attacks are the same, just different scar will be left. The goal is users money. Security researchers are working and successfully cracked some ransomware, developing decryption tools allowing victims to unlock files for free. However some of the ransomware viruses are so advanced that user have no choice but to pay. Of course there are some solutions (which we will discuss below) that may help recover.

WildFire Locker ransomware

WildFire Locker ransomware will not reveille itself until files are encrypted. Once the work of encrypting files is completed victims will notice the ransom note which you can see above.The locked files will be renamed and WildFire Locker ransomware will append .wflx extension. Locked files look like: 

Filename #WildFire_Locker#be8c3f##.doc.wflx

New file will be placed on victims desktop HOW_TO_UNLOCK_REAME.txt with instructions:
