ACCDFISA Protection Program Removal Guide

What is ACCDFISA Protection Program?

Important information about the ACCDFISA Protection Program virus:

ACCDFISA Protection Program virus is a ransomware-type infection that locks your computer screen and encrypts your files. It is a typical scam claiming that your computer was blocked due to illegal activities detected on your system, spam, and other malicious activities. In particular, the virus generates a legitimate-looking notification, supposedly a part of a Anti-Child Porn Spam Protection program, informing the computer’s owner that his/her computer is being used to spread child pornography-related spam throughout the web. The notification continues by explaining that due to these illegal activities, the computer has been blocked, and all the data on it has been encrypted. Even though the notification states that the computer’s files have been encrypted with an AES encryption algorithm, the virus actually compresses the files in RAR format and password-protects the archive. Luckily, such an encryption has not been much of a challenge for the computer experts, and the ACCDFISA virus was quickly decrypted. You can now find the decryption tool online but do not forget to take care of the ACCDFISA removal as well. ReimageIntego or similar professional antivirus software can be used for this purpose.

ACCDFISA Protection Program

Since this ransomware uses the lock screen after it takes over your computer, it is impossible to miss the ransom note it generates as soon as your computer is booted. In this note it is stated that the victim is required to pay $100 or around 90 Euro to solve this problem. You simply need to send SMS with Ukash, MoneyPak or Paysafecard code that you have received from nearest stores and your reference number. Scammers claim that you have 48 hours to solve this problem. Otherwise, all your files will be deleted without a possibility to recover them. We do not recommend paying the ransom since the decryption key for this virus has already been invented. Besides, they probably will send you the unlock code anyway. So, it is better to remove ACCDFISA from your system and carry on using your computer safely again.
Here is an example of the ransom note this virus displays on the lock screen:

How this virus distributed and how can I get infected?

ACCDFISA Protection Program is distributed and installed manually on targeted systems. This time scammers target Windows servers and companies instead of Windows home users. The reason why they are doing this is probably the expectation of a bigger profit as companies usually store more valuable data on their servers. What is more, the usual workflow may be impaired which means company loses money. It seems that scammers managed to brute force or somehow steal passwords of users that work on targeted servers. It’s a good idea to change all your passwords if your company computer got infected with ACCDFISA Protection Program ransomware.

This ransomware modifies Windows registry so that you can’t boot the system in safe mode. It also creates to Windows services and runs them each time Windows starts. Scammers scans the infected computer for files with .txt, .doc, .xml, .dat, .docx, .pst, .xls and some other file extensions. Ransomware uses WinRar to archive and password protect all the files so that you can’t access them without a password. It also changes the file extension to .eas.

How to prevent from getting ransomware

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.

 

Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
