UltraCrypter ransomware virus comes with .cryp1 extension.

UltraCrypter ransomware virus is the new tool (UltraDeCrypter) offered to victims for decrypting .cryp1 extension. On may 27th we have spotted the new variant of CryptXXX came as a tsunami, encrypting users files with the new .cryp1 extension. Users infected by this virus were offered to pay 1.2 BTC approximately $650 and get this UltraDeCrypter to decrypt locked files. If you don know what is all this ransomware scary thing, things will become clear when you finish reading this. Many of you not familiar with ransomware will call it a virus, however it is not. Ransomware is a malicious software (malware) which can come with a virus. Furthermore it will lock users data by encrypting valuable files or restrict access to the computer system. The notorious ransom behavior is well know as its hijack your files and then demand them for a certain price and there will be no negotiation. Computer system not protected with anti-malware tool is vernalable to such attack. For now description tool is not yet been developed and we don’t know how long it will take for one to be. Since the announce of teslacrypt shutdown, cyber criminals moved away to CryptXXX and making this virus more advanced than ever before. Read more about .cryp1 extension and how to remove it below.

We can see the similarities of a ransom behaviour which are: encrypting users files, ransom demand and time limit of payment. But ransomware can also be so much different to other similar infections. As usual it is distributed as a spam email attachments infecting users with trojan. After files are encrypted, UltraCrypter ransomware virus will reveal itself with a ransom note:

All your files are encrypted.
ID:
[links to custom-made pages on the TOR network]
Download and install tor-browser [link to the Tor project page]
TorLink: [link to the payment portal that is used by the UltraCrypter Ransomware]
Write down the information to notebook (exercise book) and reboot the computer.

After system has been infiltrated we can see the following directories created by the ransomware virus along with !*.txt and !*.html folders with .cryp1 extension. RSA-4096 is the algorithm used to encrypt your data. This is a very strong and hard to crack encryption algorithm. The target is data in value of the user like: jpg, pdf, doc files and more. We strongly recommend not to perform a payment since the latest CryptXXX 3.0 upgrade has been providing users with non working decryptor. Previously CryptXXX was presented by  CryptoWall, but now users will experience the new facelift coming with their own template and their own decryptor (UltraDeCrypter).

NOTE: The steps below might not work. We recommend using anti-malware tool.

Now that you have been infected you have a few options:

Many suggest that you simply pay and hope that you will get all off your data back. However in this case you risk losing money and still being stuck with crypted files. We do not recommend this way simply because you will support the work of hackers and the more money thay get the stronger they will become.

The best option for you is if you have a backup, wipe your hard drive and perform system restore.

Use any type of anti malware software to remove UltraCrypter ransomware.

NOTE: In this option the virus will be removed but the files will remain locked! You have to decrypt your files.

New research discovery shows how ransomware deletes files and substitute encrypted copy of them. It is not guaranteed, but it is a possibility that you may recover your files with data recovery software. Before trying to decrypt any files you can scan your computer for posible data loss.
