Vpsh Virus Extended Removal Guide:
What Is VPSH Virus?
Vpsh virus is a ransomware infection which is part of the STOP ransomware virus family. It's main goal is to infect computer OS's by changing critical Windows settings and encrypting files on the computers it has infected. The victims of this nasty infection receive a ransom note which asks them to pay BitCoin in order to get their files to work again. The ransom note is called and the virus adds the .vpsh file extension to the encrypted files.
When VPSH ransomware encrypts your files, it may begin to blackmail you into contacting the crooks who have created this nasty virus. The ransom note aims to inform victims that their important information, which is composed of archives, backups, documents, pictures and other files has been encrypted with a strong cipher and they must pay around $500-$1000 in 72 hours. Otherwise, hackers threaten that they will double the ransom.
How to deal with VPSH Virus?
The people who are behind this nasty ransomware offer that victims decrypt 1 file for free so that they can see this strategy works. Be advised that even many of the victims who have even met the demands of the crooks, may not have gotten their files back and their files may have remained inaccessible. This is why it is not advisable to pay any ransom to the cyber-criminals who are behind this virus. Your best bet at this point would be to do a backup of all the .vpsh files and add them to external drives. Malware researchers are always trying to find mistakes in the codes of new STOP ransomware viruses so that they can be decoded and you can restore files for free.
