Ncovid is a ransomware that will take over your computer’s functionality and lock your computer or files until you pay a “ransom” in order to get access back. It disguises itself as a legit official warning when in reality it is all fake. What the Ncovid ransomware does is encrypt files rendering them inaccessible. Once encryption is done, it will display the file “___RECOVER__FILES__.ncovid.txt” with the following text inside:
All of your files have been encrypted.
To unlock them, please send 1 bitcoin(s) to BTC address:
Afterwards, please email your transaction ID to: Ciastko.firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and have a nice day!
Don’t fall for the trap and don’t pay any ransom fees! With software, you can remove Ncovid ransomware easily. Do note that this type of infection can be downloaded on your computer for many reasons such as malicious websites, codecs, or downloads. Be sure to remove it immediately.
