Since CrySiS was first reported in February, it was not widely spread, however not long after, many new varians were detected. All reported variants of CrySiS will encrypt user data, appending .xtbl extension. The main difference between CrySiS variants is that will have different emails before the extension appended to victim’s locked files. For example this variant will append <filename>.<id-number>.DIGITALKEY@163.com.xtbl All variants will combination of RSA and AES algorithms to encrypt victim’s files and decryption key will be generated, which will be the one to unlock files, however it does not come for free. User will have to pay for the key, which is highly unrecommended.

When the encryption process is done DIGITALKEY@163.com.xtbl extension will be appende along with a ransom note left at user desktop. The background picture will be changed to let victims known of current situation. The ransom note supposed to be containing a helpful information regarding payment help and support, however not all of CrySiS varinats provide more than and contact email into the ransom note.
Some victims reported that cybercriminals actually replied, however they should not be trusted. Furthermore the virus will continue to run as a background so it may continue encrypting files if user connect external storage devices. The virus will also delete the system’s shadow copies, which will make system restore not available.
Also CrySiS is not the only ransomware that will append .xtbl extension and email before that. Globe Ransomware will also append email.xtbl extension depending on the variant. Since Globe was first reported, .Purge extension, however some varints are reported to append .extbl. The behaviour of bout CrySiS and Globe is similar and often mistaken.
