Then Tuis 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 utilizes to encrypt the files is not decryptable with modern computers. Even quantum PCs that currently exist will likely spend hundreds of years to find the decryption key.

How did the Tuis ransomware get on my computer?
The Tuis ransomware spreads by placing links to download hacked programs or games. Cybercriminals distributing this ransomware are remarkably foxy and aim to keep in touch with current trends. New games introductions, new popular films – Tuis developers make whatever to get their victims on that. One-day websites with torrent download links are some of the most popular strategies these burglars apply. Nevertheless, using contemporary news is not the single manner these burglars utilize. Ways that have already turned into the standard, such as email spamming, are also normal for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.
Preventing this ransomware does not need a lot of initiative. Adhering to the regular rules of PC hygiene will noticeably minimize all dangers. Keep in mind that starting all files you receive by e-mail is not a good idea. An even worse scenario is to enable macros in Microsoft Office documents. However, it is better to stop the malware intrusion at the moment when you have just opened the e-mail message. Examining 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 legitimate email. On the other hand, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx shipment notification but uses the email address “firstname.lastname@example.org”– should make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see an example of such a message.
Illegal sources of various digital things require some extra explanation. Violating copyright regulation surely throws you to risk of being fined. Nevertheless, torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs also exposes you to various malware. No one can regulate anonymous people who start torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the website with pirated programs.
