OBLIVION Ransomware

OBLIVION ransomware removal instructions

What is OBLIVION?

OBLIVION is a ransomware-type virus recently discovered by malware security researcher, Michael Gillespie. Once infiltrated, OBLIVION encrypts most stored files. In addition, it renames them using the "[gibberish].OBLIVION" pattern. For example, "sample.jpg" might be renamed to a filename such as "88ea2M65a2==ixH6t4Ht789fvC49W.OBLIVION". Encrypted files become unusable and indistinguishable. Immediately after encryption, OBLIVION generates a text file ("OBLIVION DECRYPTION INFORMATION.TXT") and places a copy in every existing folder. Note also that there is a high probability that OBLIVION is related to another ransomware infection called Scarab.

For example, "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg....PAY_IN_MAXIM_24_HOURS_OR_ALL_YOUR_FILES_WILL_BE_PERMANENTLY_DELETED_PLEASE_BE_REZONABLE_you_have_only_1_single_chance_to_make_the_payment". Once files are encrypted, using them becomes impossible.
