He also stated that this ransomware was just a funny thing, spending his time laughing at others. Nevertheless, no matter how amusing Rensenware was for Tvple Eraser, PC and smartphone users who had their devices infected with this virus did not think it was funny.

Trying to apologize, Tvple Eraser has launched a tool which helps users to bypass the code of the malware and gain control of their device again. If you are wondering what you should be looking for, then the Malware Hunter Team informs every user that a red window will pop up as soon as user’s device gets infected. The red window contains a lot of text and the picture of an Anime character.
At the top of the window, users will notice a message like “Your device was compromised by some occult force” which is entitled Minamitsu “The Captain” Mufasa. To recover all the files, the user needs to score 0.2 billion points in an Anime game called TH12.
