Then Eegf ransomware adds a ransom note (readme.txt) to each folder. In it, you can see the instructions to pay the ransom ($490-$980 in Bitcoin) to a specified BTC wallet. The AES-256 or RSA-1028 cipher it uses to encrypt the files is not decryptable with modern computers. Even quantum computers that already exist will likely spend thousands of years to brute force the decryption key.

How did the Eegf ransomware get on my computer?
The Eegf ransomware spreads by placing links to get hacked programs or games. They keep their eye on all hype topics which can be chosen to spread ransomware. New games introductions, new popular films – Eegf creators make whatever to get their money on that. One of the most common methods these burglars apply is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. Nonetheless, following the current news is not the only tactic these crooks utilize. Options that have already become classic, such as e-mail spamming, are also usual for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.
Avoiding this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Adhering to the ordinary rules of computer hygiene will noticeably reduce all risks. Bear in mind that launching all files you get on email is not a good habit. Even worse case is to allow macros in Microsoft Office documents. But it is far better to stop the malware intrusion at the moment when you have just opened the email message. Inspecting the sender’s address can say a lot about what you can anticipate, and when you see things like “email@example.com”– it is likely a trustworthy email. On the other hand, stuff that tries to look like Amazon or FedEx shipping notification, but uses the email address of “firstname.lastname@example.org”– should make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.
Outlaw sources of different digital things require some extra description. Going against copyright policy surely throws you to the possibility of being fined. Nevertheless, utilizing torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs also exposes you to different malware. Nobody can regulate unidentified people who launch the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the site with pirated software.
