How to Remove JScript Encoded Script File Virus

What is JScript Encoded Script File Virus?

JScript Encoded Script File virus is the name given to a specific variant of ransomware that utilizes an executable JScript Encoded Script File to unpack malware across an infected machine. The JScript Encoded Script File file is usually distributed by malicious email campaigns.

Overview

Names Distribution
JScript Encoded Script File virus, JScript Encoded Script File ransomware Email, Exploit Kits, Social Media

JScript Encoded Script File ransomware is predominantly distributed by malicious emails that contain deceptive links or attachments. The email attachments or files downloaded by the links will typically consist of a.zip file or fake Microsoft Word document file. If files from the .zip file are manually extracted it will unpack a JScript Encoded Script file. When the JScript Encoded Script file is manually executed by the user or another file is opened it will cause the malware to spread across the machine.

This ransomware usually encrypts files that match certain file extensions with RSA-2048 and AES-128 ciphers. The encryption process will render the files inaccessible to the user. The encrypted files are appended the new file extension and file type, and the file name will become randomized or given a pattern such as [unique_id][identifier].[ransomware_name]. For example, a file named test.png will become 1IYBGY687G6t6g.[ransomware_name].  A ransom note (or series of ransom notes) in .html and text formats will then be placed in every folder the virus encrypted files in and on Windows desktop. In addition, Windows desktop will change to an image of the ransom note and an image file of the ransom note will also be left in every folder the virus encrypted files in.

The ransom note left on an infected computer by ransomware that utilizes an executable JScript Encoded Script file typically contains information about what happened to the files, links to pages on Wikipedia, and steps to download and install Tor Browser in order to visit a web address and pay a ransom.

It is suggested to avoid paying ransomware authors to decrypt your files. Instead, third-party programs Shadow Explorer, PhotoRec, or Recuva can be used to potentially recover files encrypted by this virus. A user may also be able to retrieve encrypted files by performing a system restore to a date and time before the infection occurred.
