IT.Books ransomware removal instructions

What is IT.Books?

Discovered by MalwareHunterTeam, IT.Books is a high-risk ransomware designed to infiltrate the system and encrypt most of stored data, thereby making it unusable. While encrypting, IT.Books appends ".f*cked" extension to the name of each compromised file. I.e., "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.f*cked".
