Jaffe Ransomware Removal Process (remove JaffeRansomware)

February 11, 2019

The computer malware threat known as Jaffe Ransomware looks to be one that was created by hackers who intend on extorting money from victimized computer users. Such a process starts with Jaffe Ransomware locking down an infected PC by encrypting several files.

After Jaffe Ransomware has encrypted files, it will then display a ransom note that makes demands to the PC user to pay a ransom fee to supposedly get the files back or restored from their encrypted state. Paying the ransom may or may not provide a process for decrypting the files – such a task is a gamble and could end up in loss of hundreds of dollars.

The best approach to take upon having a PC infected by Jaffe Ransomware is to first eliminate Jaffe Ransomware using an updated antimalware program. After Jaffe Ransomware is removed, the user should then use a recent backup of their system to restore any files left encrypted by Jaffe Ransomware.
