Where does MCrypt2019 Ransomware come from?

There are a couple of ways MCrypt2019 Ransomware could get in. For starters, it could get in through unsecured Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connections. Therefore, if you use such services, it is essential to use a strong password as well as other safety precautions so that no one could get unauthorized access to your device. The other way to receive this malicious application is to launch a malicious email attachment or click on a suspicious link sent via email. To avoid making such mistakes, we recommend paying attention to emails that come from unknown senders, Spam emails, etc. If you are ever in doubt, it is best to scan a doubtful file with a legitimate antimalware tool before opening it.

How does MCrypt2019 Ransomware work?

The malicious application is a file-encrypting infection that is usually designed for money extortion. Often such threats encipher only private user data, but it looks like MCrypt2019 Ransomware can encrypt most of a victim’s files, including system data. This is why some of the computer’s features might start crashing as soon as the encryption process is over. All files that get enciphered should have a double extension, for example, picture.jpg.exe. Nonetheless, victims might be unable to see it due to system crashes.

Nevertheless, victims ought to see a black warning window with a ransom note. In it, the hackers behind MCrypt2019 Ransomware urge their targeted victims not to waste any time for looking at how to decrypt their files as they claim to be the only ones who have the needed decryption keys. While this could be true, keep in mind the hackers could be trying to trick you. For instance, they may later ask for more money, or you could never hear from them ever again. Sadly, the ransom is not so small either as cybercriminals want to receive a payment of $600. If you do not want to risk losing such a sum for nothing, we advise deleting MCrypt2019 Ransomware and restoring files from backup copies you could keep on removable media devices cloud storage, etc.
