How to remove MSSECSVC2.0

First of all you should know that MSSECSVC2.0 process is extremely dangerous. If you’re reading this while the process is running on your PC, you should immediately turn the computer off and boot it in the Safe mode with networking. After that – return to this page and continue reading. So, MSSECSVC2.0 is a process that runs and is visible in Process manager when Wana Decryptor ransomware operates in the system. If you see this process but haven’t seen any other signs of ransomware activity then Wana Decryptor just entered the system and currently encrypts your files.
