Fabsyscrypto Ransomware

What is Fabsyscrypto Ransomware?

You have to be exceptionally careful about your activity online because any misstep could lead to the infiltration of Fabsyscrypto Ransomware. This infection is completely new, and it is possible that it has not been released in the wild yet, which is why we do not fully understand how it spreads. Of course, if we look at other ransomware infections – such as Patcher Ransomware, Jigsaw 4.6 Ransomware, and Wallet Ransomware – they tend to spread via corrupted spam emails, which is why we believe that this method could be employed by the creators of this infection as well. The distributor of this threat could conceal the launcher file as a regular-looking document file, and you could be tricked into launching the threat yourself. There is also a possibility that this dangerous ransomware could be downloaded and executed by a Trojan that is already active on your PC. Clearly, there are many things that we need to discuss before we show you how to delete Fabsyscrypto Ransomware.test

How does Fabsyscrypto Ransomware work?

Fabsyscrypto Ransomware, according to Anti-Spyware-101.com malware researchers, is built using the .Net framework, and it is based on the Hidden Tear open-source code. After analyzing the code of this malicious threat, we can tell you that it attacks .asp, .aspx, .csv, .doc, .docx, .html, .jpg, .odt, .ppt, .psd, .pptx, .png, .php, .sln, .sql, .txt, .xls, .xlsx, and .xml files. Also, the code includes the strings of directories’ names that the ransomware targets. Some of them include “AppData,” “Program Files,” “Temp,” and “Windows.” Needless to say, this threat specifically targets files that you cannot replace unless you have backups. Your photos, presentations, documents, and other personal files are likely to be very important to you, and that should make you want to fulfill the demands represented by cyber criminals. For that purpose, Fabsyscrypto Ransomware creates a TXT file called “_HELP_instructions.txt”. You can open it using any text reader (e.g., Notepad), and that is completely safe. The file should be copied to every directory that contains the encrypted data.

According to the Fabsyscrypto Ransomware ransom message, your personal files were encrypted using RSA-2048 and AES-128 encryption keys. It is most likely that one of these keys is used for the encryption of files, and the other one encrypts the decryption key. It should be created and sent to a remote server to keep it away from you. The ransom message informs that you need to visit one of the presented sites to learn how to retrieve the decryptor. Of course, the information on these sites suggests that you need to pay a ransom, but do you? Unfortunately, this might be your only chance at getting your personal files. At the moment, a tool that could decipher the encryption key does not exist, which means that your only option is the one offered by the creator of Fabsyscrypto Ransomware. Having said that, you must keep in mind that cyber crooks could scam you by taking your money but not providing you with a decryption tool. Unfortunately, the possibility of being scammed is big, and so you have to think before you decide whether or not you pay the ransom requested by the creator of the infection.
