How to remove Rapax Ransomware and decrypt .rapax files

Rapax Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects computers by encrypting the files on the system and then demanding a ransom for their decryption. It typically spreads through malicious email attachments, fake software updates, or compromised websites.

Once a computer is infected, Rapax Ransomware adds a .rapax file extension to the encrypted files. It uses a strong encryption algorithm to lock the files, making them inaccessible without the decryption key.

The ransomware creates a ransom note that is usually displayed on the desktop or saved in various folders on the infected computer. The note contains instructions on how to pay the ransom in exchange for the decryption key.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there are no known decryption tools available for decrypting .rapax files without paying the ransom. However, it is not recommended to pay the ransom as there is no guarantee that the cybercriminals will provide the decryption key or that the key will work properly.

To protect against Rapax Ransomware and other similar threats, it is important to regularly back up your files, keep your software and operating system up to date, and avoid clicking on suspicious links or downloading attachments from unknown sources.
