PUA/MyWebSearch.Gen uses the RSA cryptosystem with a 2048-bit key. Spam emails that distribute ransomware look like official notifications from reliable sources. After encrypting your files, which is done using the RSA-1024 algorithm, PUA/MyWebSearch.Gen auto-runs a file called UNCRYPT.txt. For example, you may have clicked some pop-up that redirected you to a malicious site. If you open it, you will find out how to pay a ransom. For example, you should not ever open e-mails you get from unknown or suspicious senders. This spam is built from the start (sender and subject fields) to serve one purpose only:

How can this trojan infect my computer?

All ransomware infections are distributed similarly, so if PUA/MyWebSearch.Gen Ransomware has managed to enter your system successfully, the chances are high that new threats could easily slither onto your computer too if you do not do anything to ensure your system’s maximum protection today. Of course in some cases you may not even feel related to the subject matter claimed by such a mail and yet, your curiosity will probably prevail by nudging you with a silent “Ok, let us just quickly see what this might be about.” So let us tell you now why it is the wrong attitude when it comes to doubtful e-mails. Keep in mind that you will need a reputable anti-spyware when removing. Why? Thus, our researchers highly advise you to always learn as much as possible about the program that you want to have before even downloading it.

The screen notification that PUA/MyWebSearch.Gen displays can be disabled. We noticed it happening if the computer is restarted while the malware’s launcher is still running. If you are an inexperienced user in these matters, we would advise you to install a legitimate antimalware tool because deleting this infection might be quite complicated and a security tool would do all the job for you. Even experienced users would have trouble with that, and so we suggest installing anti-malware software right away. The good news is that you do not need to PUA/MyWebSearch.Gen manually.

How does PUA/MyWebSearch.Gen Trojan spread?

PUA/MyWebSearch.Gen expects you to pay 0.3BTC (around $182USD) for the decryption key. However, the general idea is that paying the ransom does not guarantee the file restoration. If you do not want to deal with this tedious task on your own, you can always invest in a security tool that will do everything for you. In other words, in the worst case scenario, you could end up losing not only all precious files but also your money. Either way, the given address on the screen cannot be identified, so sending the money is pointless.
