.crypz ransomware. Remove .crypz or .cryptz

crypz ransomware has just been spoted as a ransomware extension related to CryptXXX. Most of infected users still call this .crypz a virus but it is a malware. Ransomware is a malicious software (malware) that can come with a trojan virus. A bit more that you should know about ransomware is that this virus will encrypt your files or restrict access to the whole system. CryptXXX now turns its attention on the extension. Encrypted files previously coming with .crypt are now .crypz. Ransomware is getting more popular because it is profitable. The notorious behavior is well know as its hijack your files and then demand them for a certain price and there will be no negotiation. Victims will be in between choosing to pay and supposebly get files back or fight with the cybercriminals. Eventually a description tool will be released, however we don’t know how long it will take for one to be developed. Since the announce of teslacrypt shutdown, CryptXXX has come back with new updates ever more recently becoming undecryptable for now. Note: .crypz is often mistaken for .cryptz.crypz

Apparently .crypz ransomware TOR link is the same as CryptXXX, however the website is different. After system has been infiltrated we can see the following directories created by the ransomware virus along with !*.txt and !*.html folders with .crypz extension. Yesterday we saw how fast this virus was spreading. The distribution methods as we know are towards trojan horse, spam email attachments, poison website that you visited or a freeware installation. RSA 4096 is the algorithm used to encrypt your data. This is a very strong and hard to crack encryption algorithm. For now files encrypted by crypz virus are undecryptable. The target is data in value of the user like: jpg, pdf, doc files and more.
