.Hard Ransomware uses a malicious extension to alter extension of your files and will give you a ransom note that guides you to contact its maker to get decryption key. You will be asked to buy bitcion and use it to purchase the decryption key. It is expensive but you never get any real guarantee that your files can be restored completely. Many victims infected by ransomware were tricked to pay but did not get a useful key. Do not take the risk!

It is not wise for you to follow its instructions to buy decryption key. You should delete .Hard Ransomware first and then try legitimate decryption keys to be shared in the short future. Many popular tech companies are working on developing decryption tools for latest ransomware.

First and foremost, Don’t buy decryption key from virus maker ! We have seen many victims be scammed by hacker due to ransomware attack. They paid lots of money but never received the decryption key.
