InfinityShadow is a ransomware created to encrypt your data and demand money for undoing the changes made to it. It runs as “The_Last.exe” (so it’s also known as “The_Last Ransomware”) and it starts attacking the files as soon as it manages to breach inside your system. It employs a combination of AES and RSA algorithms, and all of the attacked data becomes inaccessible, including images, text documents, audios, videos, databases, and files associated with Microsoft Office and MySQL. Once the encryption process is finished, the ransom note called “Important_Read_Me.txt” is created and put on the Desktop. The following message can be found inside of it –

Even though there’s no decryption tool for this virus at the moment, it’s still not necessary to pay to people that made it. Use that money on security software instead – for example, on SpyHunter. The instructions on how to use it are posted under the article, so your efforts should eventually give you the desired results, even if it’s your first time doing something like this. When you’re through with that process, recover your data from backup and keep threats like InfinityShadow off the PC. It’s not hard to do that and there’s not much required from your side.
Only open the attachments that come with spam emails if you’re absolutely sure that they’re harmless and don’t agree to update your software if the prompt to do that seems somehow suspicious. Go to shady pages as rarely as possible (there may be rootkits hosted on them) and refrain from clicking on links and advertisements that can be seen on file-sharing services, adult sites and other resources. Last, but not least, keep SpyHunter updated and running, and everything should be alright going forward.
