oron@india.com virus Removal Guide

What is oron@india.com ransomware virus?

Things you should know if your files were encrypted by oron@india.com ransomware

oron@india.com virus is yet another ransomware that Dharma developers enroll into their malware family. Just like other Dharma viruses, it was created to work as an extortion tool that encrypts victim’s files and demands a ransom in exchange for a decryption key[1], which is needed for data recovery procedure. Dharma ransomware group is very similar to Crysis malware because it always marks encrypted files in a particular way. The oron@india.com ransomware adds a .[oron@india.com].dharma file extension to encrypted files; we believe that this way the ransomware author wanted to accentuate the email address and make sure that the victim notices it. Dharma malware is known to be a powerful virus, however, speaking about these @india.com ransomware viruses, strange things happen. Recent events make us think of TeslaCrypt[2] and Crysis[3] scenarios when secret decryption keys were leaked (most likely by people involved in ransomware development). Now, Dharma ransomware decryption keys were released[4], and the decryption tool by Kaspersky was updated once again. We strongly recommend you to remove oron@india.com malware from a computer using malware removal tools (ReimageIntego or Malwarebytes works well) and try the decryption tool. It is very likely that you will be able to recover your files for free.

oron@india.com virusThis is how the files look like after oron@india.com ransomware encrypts them. oron@india.com virus is known to be a version of Dharma ransomware, so files get .dharma extension, too.

The developers of oron@india.com virus want the victim to pay a ransom, saying that it is the only way to recover encrypted data. However, we assume that it is not true and that this virus contains a few bugs. Recently, a visitor posted a comment on the 2-Spyware site[5], saying that he managed to extract encrypted .zip files with 7-Zip, even though they had .[oron@india.com].dharma file extensions. Before trying this data recovery method, try to restore your files using the aforementioned decryption tool. Now, initiate oron@india.com virus removal.

How did I get infected with Dharma ransomware?

Computer users frequently install malware on their computers by themselves. Scammers use social engineering attacks to convince unsuspecting victims to open malicious email attachments, install unnecessary updates, and carry out other commandments without even thinking. However, in many cases, hackers use their coding skills and spread ransomware with the help of exploit kits, compromised ad networks, and other malware distribution measures. It is possible to stay away from malicious emails, but it is much harder to avoid exploit kits. To protect your PC, you should be using anti-malware programs, have a data backup and refrain from clicking every eye-catching ad or link online.

How to prevent from getting ransomware

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address.

If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for the server or network manager that needs to monitor connections and activities. VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world.

 

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
