XeroWare Ransomware is another creation by cybercrooks looking for a quick pay-day at the expense of computer users who are victimized by malware that encrypts files and holds those files for ransom. The ransom note from XeroWare Ransomware is slightly different from many other similar threats as it is all displayed in what appears to be a coded text file warning a victim that they have 96 hours to pay up a ransom.

Those who may opt to pay the ransom may find themselves in a pickle as they may not receive the promised decryption code or process to restore their encrypted files. Instead of taking such a dangerous risk, which will ultimately result in loss of money, it is best to utilize an antispyware resource to automatically remove XeroWare Ransomware from the system. After removal of XeroWare Ransomware, the encrypted files may then be restored using a system backup.
