File Spider Ransomware

File Spider ransomware removal instructions

What is File Spider?

File Spider is a ransomware-type virus discovered by malware security researcher, Lawrence Abrams. It is distributed using spam emails with malicious attachments (MS Office documents) that execute a macro command to download and run malware. Developers target users mainly from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia. Immediately after infiltration, File Spider encrypts most stored files and appends filenames with the ".spider" extension (e.g., "sample.jpg" becomes "sample.jpg.spider"). From this point, files become unusable. Once files are encrypted, File Spider runs the "dec.exe" file (downloaded by the attachment and placed in the "%AppData%\Spider" folder). In addition, it creates two shortcuts: "HOW TO DECRYPT FILES.url" (placed in each existing folder and leading to a "how to decrypt" online video tutorial) and "DECRYPTER.url" (placed on the desktop, and which opens the "dec.exe" file).
