These modifications allow the malware to take root into the computer and then activate plenty of malicious processes when the victimized PC users turn on their system. The main goal of LanRan ransomware is to encode the files stored on the computer immediately.

Although, it is quite easy to be threatened by LanRan ransomware attack. Once the virus completes the file encryption procedure, it displays a ransom note reported as “@___help___@”. Moreover, the criminal hackers ask 0.5 Bitcoin to transfer to the provided Bitcoin wallet address to purchase the decryption tool for this ransomware. It instructs the victimized users to contact the operators of this malware through a provided email address i.e. “email@example.com”. The threat promises to provide the decryption key which is a tool vital for file restoration when the users make the ransom payment. However, it is strongly advised against paying the ransom fee, instead use backup copies for data recovery after the complete removal of LanRan ransomware.
