What is a LILITH file?
Lilith ransomware is a form of malware that attempts to steal a user's data and encrypt their files. The ransomware begins its attack by terminating several common Windows application processes. It then produces a ransom note named *Restore_Your_Files.txt in every folder that will contain an encrypted file. Finally, it encrypts most of a user's files and appends them with the .lilith extension.
*Restore_Your_Files.txt contains instructions a user can supposedly follow to decrypt their files. The note also warns that, if the user does not pay the ransom, the ransomware distributors will leak their data.
How did my computer become infected by Lilith ransomware?
Ransomware is most commonly distributed in email attachments and programs that appear to be legitimate but are actually adware and malware bundles. If you recently downloaded and opened an unverified attachment or program, that may be how your computer became infected by Lilith ransomware.
How to open a LILITH file
At this time, there is no way to decrypt and open LILITH files. The best way to restore encrypted files is to retrieve them from a recent backup or perform a System Restore.
FileInfo.com recommends you never pay a ransom to decrypt files encrypted by ransomware. Paying a ransom encourages ransomware distributors to continue their efforts, and there is no guarantee that paying a ransom will give you access to your files. Instead, you should restore your data from a recent backup created before the ransomware infected your computer.
