Remove Fdcz Ransomware
Falling victim to the Fdcz Ransomware attack can be a very terrible experience, especially if you do not have a backup copy of your files. When this file-encryption Trojan infects a computer, it will lock files on the victim's hard drive. It goes after popular file types like documents, media, archives, and others. After it encrypts a file successfully, it will rename it by applying the '.fdcz' extension. Keep in mind that undoing the name change will not undo the damage done to your files. The only way to decrypt them is to run specialized software paired with the decryption key that the Fdcz Ransomware generates for each victim. However, this piece of information is only available on the servers of the attackers.
Fdcz Ransomware is a New STOP/Djvu Variant
This file-locker belongs to the STOP/Djvu family of ransomware - just like the IWAN Ransomware. These are not decryptable via free tools and, unfortunately, their victims need to use alternative data recovery options. However, typical data recovery utilities are not perfectly reliable when it comes to ransomware attacks. They may help restore some files, but it is unlikely that they will help for a full recovery. The only way to recover from Fdcz Ransomware's attack fully is to restore your files from a backup.
Of course, the Fdcz Ransomware ends its attack by dropping a ransom note for the victim. It is titled '_readme.txt' and victims will usually find it on the desktop. The note tells victims that they can buy a decryptor for $490, but the fee will be doubled after 72 hours. They ask to receive the money through Bitcoin. Last but not least, the criminals list two emails for contact - firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
What do you do if the Fdcz Ransomware locks your files? Your top priority is to run an antivirus tool to eliminate the threat. After this, you can proceed to try out alternative data recovery tools.
