MaxiCrypt Ransomware

What is MaxiCrypt Ransomware?

There is a new threat coming into the picture, and it goes by the name MaxiCrypt Ransomware. This malicious threat joins the family of ransomware threats, and it was created to realize a very devious plan. First, the infection slithers in and encrypts your personal files. This is done using a complex algorithm, which ensures that the victims cannot decrypt their files on their own. Next, the threat creates a file that carries an intimidating message which cyber criminals use to extort money and make victims do other risky things. research team warns that this malicious threat could be very dangerous, and if you are caught in the trap set up by cyber crooks, you could end up losing your personal files for good. The current version of the malicious treat is not fully researched yet, and it is unclear which files the ransomware is targeted at, but it is safe to say that all of your personal files, including media files, documents, archives, and photos are at risk. The worst part is that you will not recover your files even if you delete MaxiCrypt Ransomware successfully.

How does MaxiCrypt Ransomware work?

Just like Netcrypton Ransomware, Cryptolockeremulator Ransomware, Cryp70n1c Ransomware, and hundreds of other threats alike, MaxiCrypt Ransomware is spread in a clandestine manner so that the victim would not understand what is going on. Once the malicious launcher is let in, no time is wasted before the encryption is initiated. The encryption of files happens very fast, and the user is unlikely to notice the process at all. On the other hand, the “.[].maxicrypt” extension is appended to all the files corrupted by the ransomware, and so it is not hard to figure out which files were hit once they are corrupted. As you can see, an email address is included in the extension, and, in fact, it is one of the two email addresses that are used by the creator of MaxiCrypt Ransomware. The other one is, and all victims are asked to email either one of these two addresses. What is the point of that? According to the message you can find in the “How to restore your data.txt” file, if you email cyber crooks your ID – which is also included in the message – you will get information on how to pay for a decryption tool. Instead of doing that, we recommend removing the ransomware.

The message in the ransom note might appear to offer a viable solution, but the reality is that the cyber criminals behind MaxiCrypt Ransomware will say anything to get money from you. Whether the ransom is small or big, you should not get involved because you will not be able to get this money back, and no decryption key/tool will be offered to you in return. Unfortunately, that is the biggest problem that most victims of the devious ransomware infections face. Obviously, that is not a huge problem if your files are backed up, and you can recover them easily after you delete the ransomware and the corrupted files.
