FirstRansomware ransomware removal instructions
What is FirstRansomware?
FirstRansomware is another malware based on an open-source ransomware project named "Hidden Tear". Following successful encryption, FirstRansomware encrypts victim's using symmetric cryptography (AES). In addition, FirstRansomware appends ".locked" extension to the name of every encrypted file. E.g., "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.locked". Once the files are encrypted, FirstRansomware opens a pop-up window with a ransom-demanding message.
