Remove Pagar Ransomware

If you notice the extension '.pagarbr40@gmail.com' next to your files, then you are probably in big trouble. This is the suffix that the Pagar Ransomware uses to mark the files it locks. This file-encryption Trojan is very dangerous because it can cause long-term damage to your important files. Unfortunately, the recovery options of its victims are very limited – there is no free decryption option. The good news is that some 3rd-party data recovery tools might be able to undo some of the damage that the Pagar Ransomware causes.

What is peculiar about the Pagar Ransomware is that it does not belong to any of the popular ransomware families. It is uncommon for amateur cybercriminals to develop ransomware from scratch when they could work with a dangerous product such as the VoidCrypt Ransomware.

Pagar Ransomware Offers Decryptor for 0.035 BTC

Of course, the criminals drop a ransom message for the victim. This time, they use the file 'Urgent Notice.txt' to provide details. It is important to add that the criminals use a Gmail email address. This is an amateur move from them since Google will terminate account as soon as they receive a report about the matters the owner is involved in. Needless to say, this means that Pagar Ransomware's victims might be unable to reach the attacker at all.

Pagar Ransomware Ransom Note

The crooks appear to be asking for 0.035 Bitcoin, but we assure you that you should not pay. It is very unlikely that the criminals will respond or supply the decryptor they mention. Co-operating with ransomware creators is never a good idea. If you are a victim of this threat, you should run an antivirus tool to eliminate the threat. After this, try out other data recovery tools or, even better, restore your files from a backup.
