How to remove Orbit Ransomware and decrypt .orbit files

Orbit Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts files on a victim’s computer and demands a ransom for the decryption key. It typically infects computers through malicious email attachments, fake software updates, or compromised websites.

When Orbit Ransomware infects a computer, it adds the “.orbit” file extension to encrypted files. It uses advanced encryption algorithms such as AES or RSA to lock the files, making them inaccessible without the decryption key.

After encrypting the files, Orbit Ransomware creates a ransom note on the victim’s desktop or in the folders containing encrypted files. The note usually contains instructions on how to pay the ransom and receive the decryption key.

As of now, there are no known decryption tools for Orbit Ransomware. However, victims are advised not to pay the ransom as there is no guarantee that the cybercriminals will provide the decryption key. Instead, they can try to restore their files from backups or use data recovery tools to recover some of the encrypted files.

In some cases, security researchers may develop decryption tools for specific versions of ransomware, so victims should regularly check for updates from reputable cybersecurity sources.
