Cyron Ransomware

What is Cyron Ransomware?

Cyron Ransomware can infect your computer by stealth and then encrypt many of your files with an AES encryption algorithm. Its creators want you to pay 50 Euros, which means that this program was created to be distributed in the Eurozone countries in Europe. We recommend not wasting your time trying to pay the ransom because you might not get the promised decryptor/decryption tool, so you might also lose your money. For this reason, we advise that you remove this program as soon as you can. To find out more about it, please read this whole article.test

Where does Cyron Ransomware come from?

This program was created by cyber criminals that engage in cyber extortion because that is what this ransomware is for. Our cyber security specialists believe that this ransomware is disseminated using email spam as it is a very effective distribution channel that results in many infections if done right. Hence, the emails have to be intriguing enough for the victim to open them. Therefore, researchers say that Cyron Ransomware can be presented to you as a receipt or invoice or something similar to make you inclined to open the file attached to the email. The executable file can be disguised as a PDF or Microsoft Word document. If you open that file, then your PC will become infected with this ransomware immediately, and it will start doing it dirty work.

What does Cyron Ransomware do?

Cyron Ransomware uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to encrypt your files. It creates public encryption and private decryption keys, and the decryption key is not stored locally so that you could not get your hands on it. It is sent to its Control and Command (C&C) server. It also disables Explorer.exe and places its lock screen over it. It was configured to encryption files in %USERPROIFLE%\desktop and USERPROIFLE%\downloads, so many of your most important files can remain unaffected.

You have to wait until the encryption is complete and then you can press the Shutdown button in this ransomware’s user interface window/lock screen. You can start your PC back up again, but your files will be encrypted. All encrypted files receive the “.CYRON” file extension. However, our researchers have found that if you click the Shutdown button before the encryption is complete, the information on your hard drive can become corrupted. Our test PC that was infected was corrupted. As a result, testers had to restore the hard drive image.

Once the encryption is complete, Cyron Ransomware demands you pay 50 Euros via the PaySafeCard payment system. You have to contact the developers via the provided email address after you have paid to receive the decryption key but, again, there is no guarantee that you will receive it, so we advise against paying the ransom.
