CrazyCrypt Ransomware

CrazyCrypt Ransomware

CrazyCrypt Ransomware can cause a lot of problems as the malicious application is capable not only of encrypting user’s files but also of disabling various features and modifying Registry entries. After encrypting targeted data (e.g., pictures, photos, documents, and so on), the threat should show a warning asking to contact the malware’s developers. The message should also mention the user can decrypt his data only after paying a ransom. To those who do not want to comply with the demands, the cybercriminals threaten to delete their unique decryption keys and erase some of the encrypted files permanently. Needless to say that without decryption tools the affected data is useless in any case, so if you are not planlning on paying the ransom, you should not worry about it getting erased. Our specialists say making the payment could end up badly as the hackers cannot be trusted. Thus, we advise not to risk your money and remove CrazyCrypt Ransomware with the instructions available below the article or a reliable security tool. Read more »
