What is ‘.725 Extension’
.725 Extension is detected to be an intrusive ransomware virus that encrypts files on the targeted PC and then forces users to pay money in order to decrypt them. Once installed, .725 Extension scans for the files of various extensions like doc, txt, pdf, mp3, jpg and mp4 to encrypt them. It also drops a ransom note on the desktop that instructs users how to pay the ransom. The said amount is usually paid through MoneyPak, Paysafecard, Ukash, cashU and Bitcoin. Usually this ransomware spreads through Spam email attachments and various exploit Kits. Security experts recommend not to pay any money to the criminals behind this program as they may not decrypt your data back. Rather quickly download the automatic removal tool and try recover files through data recovery options.
