The reason is simple: malware hunters find always a way to crack the members of this family and upload your free decryption tool on the Web. Therefore, no one who is sane would pay money to these criminals; There is also no guarantee that you get the decryption key or the tool after the payment. We have found a way how to remove Fabiansomware from your system. But before we talk about solutions, it is important that we communicate to you what we have found out about these ransomware.
It is the most important thing you need to know about this threat and other Ransomware, how she can enter your computer. This way you have at least the opportunity to protect your system, if you encounter such a malicious program the next time. We have found that this variant uses different methods to infiltrate computers. First, you can let them about spam E-mails on board.

All victims of Ransomware believe this. And in this way your computer will get infected if you try to look at the downloaded attachment. Because these files only as a picture or document functions, but in reality is a malicious executable file that secretly downloads this threat and initiated this attack. Another possible way for this malware infection to get into your computer runs through the remote desktop service. This means that this threat can take advantage of poorly configured Windows servers to gain access to the system and it can therefore infect.

Fabiansomware is aimed largely at your files on the disk, only the Windows system folders and these extensions: .dat,. bat,. bin, .tmp, .lnk, .com, .msi, .ini, .sys, .dll, .encrypted und.exe. Your encrypted files received a new extension that makes it clear what just happened: “.encrypted”. Funnily enough, this infection makes a copy of the warning text file for each encrypted file. This text file looks like this: “my_document.docx.encrypted.How_To_Decrypt.txt”. If she have done their dirty job, this threat locks your explorer.exe, the main system process, as well as your task manager.

You have 72 hours to pay the fee; otherwise, you lose the ability to unlock the encrypted files. This is at least what these criminals do you want to allow.
