InsaneCrypt Ransomware

What is InsaneCrypt Ransomware?

InsaneCrypt Ransomware is a malicious file-encrypting threat that can cause you a lot of trouble if you do not have your data backed-up. Our researchers at say it is not an entirely new malicious program, but more like an update or a new variant. Apparently, there already is a similar infection called '' Ransomware. However, it is difficult to say if they are distributed by the same hackers since the email addresses mentioned on each threat’s ransom notes are completely different. In any case, if you came across this malware we urge you to find out more about it. Later in the text, we will talk about InsaneCrypt Ransomware’s working manner and its possible distribution ways. What’s more, should you decide not to put up with any demands and remove the malicious program, there will be deletion instructions explaining how to erase it just a bit below the text.

Where does InsaneCrypt Ransomware come from?

Like most of the other ransomware applications, InsaneCrypt Ransomware could enter the system via infected email attachments, malicious software installers, fake updates, doubtful pop-up ads, etc. Clearly, the only way to keep away from such threats is to avoid opening emails from unknown senders, installers from untrustworthy or possibly malicious file-sharing web pages, and so on. One other thing we could recommend is installing a legitimate antimalware tool as it can guard the device against different malware. Just keep it in mind that it might be less efficient if you do not regularly update it because then the chosen tool might be unable to recognize newer threats. Also, in some cases, such infections are dropped by the hackers themselves while exploiting the device’s vulnerabilities. Again such vulnerabilities could exist because of outdated software, which means it is always important to update your operating system and other software that could be exploited.

How does InsaneCrypt Ransomware work?

Mainly, InsaneCrypt Ransomware works just like '' Ransomware. It is just the newer version adds a different second extension to its encrypted files, for example, the first version would make the file called panda.jpg look like panda.jpg.[].insane, but the updated malware turns it into panda.jpg.[].DEUSCRYPT. After all targeted files are encrypted this way, the malicious program should create a ransom note named note.exe. Its copies could appear in every directory where there are encrypted files. If you open it, you should see a text saying “All your files have been encrypted due to a security problem with your PC. If you want to restore them, write us to the e-mail”

Of course, we advise against paying the ransom as there is not knowing whether the hackers who created it can actually decrypt your data or will bother to help you decrypt it. After all, as soon as the money reaches their account they can take it and do whatever they want, and you will not be able to get it back. Under such circumstance, we advise users not to waste their money and remove InsaneCrypt Ransomware at once.
