EdgeLocker ransomware removal instructions
What is EdgeLocker?
EdgeLocker is a ransomware-type malware that stealthily infiltrates the system and encrypts various files using RSA cryptography. EdgeLocker was firstly discovered by Lawrence Abrams. This malware is designed to rename encrypted files by appending ".edgel" extension to the name of every file. For instance, "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.edgel". Following successful encryption, EdgeLocker opens a pop-up window containing a ransom-demanding message.
