HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH ‘good’?

good (also known as goodRansomware) is a newly emerged malware threat that can shock you if you see its ransom note appearing on your screen. This pest usually deals with ICR, AIM and several other messengers, which usually store passwords or require user to input it manually. It is crucial to do so because this malware happens to be an incredibly intrusive Trojan, which could cause a lot of harm. They simply seek to obtain money from users by locking the most valuable files they have. good also has four buttons, which link to rogue websites.

The warning message about your data being encrypted is the primary indication that good is fully up and running on your computer. Specialists working at 2virusremoval.com have run a few tests and are sure that good will touch files with such filename extensions as .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, .odt, .jpg, .png, .csv, .sql, .mdb, .sln, .php, .asp, .aspx, .html, .xml, .psd, .java, .jpeg, .pptm, .pptx, .xlsb, .xlsm, .db, .docm, .sql, and .pdf.

You should remember that Major Defense Kit, AntiSpySafeguard, Red Cross Antivirus, Peak Protection 2010, Pest Detector 4.1 and AntiSpy Safeguard are perfectly similar to each other, only their names and GUI are different. However, ‘good’ Ransomware is nothing but a malicious infection based on an open-source ransomware code. You would not be able to do that on your own without the decryption key. You should avoid manual removal of this threat  The Rapid ransomware is another infection operating in a very similar way and available as two separate versions with different email addresses provided in their ransom notes. There is no way of knowing when cyber criminals would write you back, and your ransom payment might increase by the time they do.

Trojan.Dropper.good infections tend to return. If not, you may need to delete your infected files and then look for the healthy copies in your external hard drive or anywhere else where you keep copies of your files. Of course, this does not always help because malicious software can find other ways to enter computers too. Upon the infection, the program modifies your Master Boot Record and, as a result, the Windows operating system cannot even start. We recommend installing reliable anti-malware software, primarily because other threats requiring removal could be active on your operating system as well. Otherwise, you can trust a reliable anti-malware tool to erase this infection automatically.

How to good?

The easiest and quickest way to get rid of good is to scan the system with an automatic malware goodr. Find the file that initiated the infection and delete it. however, you will still have to take care of other malicious applications separately. If those files get damaged, there is no way to run your computer, and so, no way to transfer the payment. We do not recommend risking paying the ransom. In addition to all this, your .exe files get blocked as well. If any trouble arises when removing the virus automatically, or the trojan tries to terminate the system scan, you can try disconnecting your computer from the network, which should diminish the virus functionalities on your computer.
