Research on Bitmessage Ransomware
In case your Microsoft Office files, images, videos, audios, emails and databases are injected with an .1999, .bleep, or .ccc extension, it indicates that your computer has been infected with file-encrypting Ransomware such as TelsaCrypt, RSA-2048 or Bitmessage , which is destructive virus made by hacker for robbing money online. Similar to common ransomware, Bitmessage mainly sneaks into your system via spam email attachments. Such suspicious emails will disguise as normal email sent by your friends, families or from famous companies, and they usually contain a document, photo or video file needed you to download. As soon as you download the attachments and open it, your files will be ruined by Bitmessage within a sec. Most of your files are changed into weird name with .1999, .vvv, or .ccc extension, and you will see a unknown TXT file in the infected folders or a popup photo on your screen, which is used to show you the warning message asking you to pay ransom fees to buy the decryption key.
