How does CryptoNar Ransomware work?

CryptoNar Ransomware is very similar to CryptoJoker Ransomware, another malicious file-encryptor that can terrorize Windows users. When this malicious infection invades the system, it goes after files that are stored in the %USERPROFILE% directory and all subfolders within. It appears that the infection uses RSA-2048 encryptor to corrupt files, and when it does that, it attaches “.partially.cryptoNar” or “.fully.cryptoNar” extension at the end of their names. The latter extension is attached to .txt and .md files only. These files are, in a way, locked up, and only a special decryption key can help “unlock” them. The issue here is that this key is held hostage by the creators of CryptoNar Ransomware, and, needless to say, they would never release this key without gaining something in return. Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that cyber criminals would provide victims with the decryptor even if they paid the ransom, which is what is requested via a file named “CRYPTONAR RECOVERY INFORMATION.txt.”

Besides the TXT file on the Desktop, CryptoNar Ransomware also launches a window with the exact same message. It pushes to purchase $200 worth of Bitcoins and send them to a special Bitcoin Wallet (1FeutvrVeiF8Qdnnx9Rr3CyBfHBCFeKWPq). Obviously, we do not advise doing that. Unfortunately, those who do not have other options – those who do not have backups, for example – are likely to take the risk. The payment is expected in 72 hours, and victims are urged to send their email addresses along with the payment so that attackers could, allegedly, send the decryptor. All of this is just a scam, and you should not fall for it. Unfortunately, free decryptors do not exist, and that means that there is nothing anyone can do to help you recover your files. Do you have backups? If you do, and you want to replace the corrupted files with them, we suggest doing that only after you remove CryptoNar Ransomware from your Windows operating system.
