Red Alert ransomware removal instructions

What is Red Alert?

Red Alert is a file-encrypting virus based on Hidden Tear (an open-source ransomware project). Red Alert encrypts victim's files using AES cryptography and appends ".locked" extension to the name of every encrypted file. For example, "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.locked". Once the files are encrypted, Red Alert alters victim's desktop wallpaper and generates a text file ("message.txt", placed on victim's desktop).
