Remove BLOCK Ransomware

The BLOCK Ransomware is not a threat you want to deal with. It has the ability to cause permanent damage to your important data, and recovering it might not be easy. The good news is that the BLOCK Ransomware is based on the Xorist Ransowmare project. The latter family is decryptable for free, and it is very likely that victims of the BLOCK Ransomware will be able to restore their data.

When this threat encrypts files, it will mark their names with the '.BLOCK' extension. Unlike other ransomware families, this one does not delete Shadow Volume Copies or System Restore points. Last but not least, it drops a ransom note in Russian, called 'КАК РАСШИФРОВАТЬ ФАЙЛЫ.txt.'

BLOCK Ransomware

The file says that the decryptor costs $125, and victims can reach out for more details by messaging dec@ro.ru. We assure you that paying is not a good idea – regardless if a decryptor is available or not. Our advice is to eradicate the BLOCK Ransomware with the use of an antivirus tool, and then run the 'Xorist Decryptor.'

If the free decryption utility does not work, then you should still not consider paying a ransom fee. Try to restore files from a backup, or explore alternative data recovery options.
