How to remove Aurora ransomware and decrypt .Aurora files

Infected with Aurora Ransomware? Need to decrypt your files?

What is Aurora Ransomware

Aurora Ransomware is crypto-virus which encrypts all user data without user permission. If you found any elements of this virus on your PC (see in related files and folders), you should turn off your internet connection and remove Aurora ransomware as soon as possible. After encryption, all files get .aurora suffix and after that, it is impossible to open, view and edit encrypted files. Unfortunately, at present moment a universal tool, capable to decrypt .aurora files don’t exist. But there is an alternative way, helping to restore coded files by Recovering Software. Another symptom of ransomware infection is created txt files with ransom demands, having following names:

HOW_TO_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES3.txt
HOW_TO_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES4.txt
HOW_TO_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES5.txt
HOW_TO_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES6.txt

The virus started to infect systems since the end of May 2018 but distributed mainly in English speaking countries. On the first release of the virus, cybercriminals demanded $500-1000 for potential decryption.
