Ransomware as a whole
Ransomware may even be a bigger threat than the other types of malicious software and you can be sure you are not the only one that has caught such a virus. Unfortunately, it is among the most dangerous and threatening malicious software products that have ever been created.
This malware gets into your personal computer, encrypts your most often used files and requests a ransom to be paid for giving you back the access to them. Normally, Ransomware gets distributed together with a Trojan horse. It infects your system most usually via email. It’s also possible that you have clicked on a suspicious hyperlink or downloaded an already infected attachment. Beware if you have done so – you might be in a serious trouble as some hackers may never recover your control over your data no matter whether you complete the payment of the ransom or not.
As a result, it can be assumed that the best advice in such a situation is to simply avoid downloading anything or following any links from unknown/suspicious sources/emails and any senders, who do not appear trustworthy to you. Bear in mind that preventing the problem is more efficient than trying to fix it later on.
The way .Cryp1 Virus works
Generally, .Cryp1 Virus functions in a way typical of any other Ransomware version. First of all, it gets into your computer bundled with a Trojan horse. It is most often distributed via an email which contains it.
- Be particularly careful and remember to remove the Trojan horse once have succeeded in dealing with .Cryp1 Virus.
What .Cryp1 Virus then does is to begin scanning your hard disks and flash drives for the locations/files that are most often visited/used. After completing that step, this Ransomware creates a list of all such data and starts to block it. As a result, the files you most often use end up being encrypted.
Here, what’s important to be mentioned is the fact that such an encrypting process usually consumes an incredible amount of time and resources. This is not necessary bad because at this particular moment, it’s really possible for you to notice the threat in your Task Manager. In general, this will be the most suspicious program with an unfamiliar name that is using up the most RAM. However, in most of the cases, the infection gets revealed only after .Cryp1 Virus has finished the encryption process and the ransom alert message has been generated.
There has also appeared a new tactics that hackers use- they offer you an anti-Ransomware program after the ransom alert gets displayed. Nevertheless, such suspicious tools will not be useful at all, as they can only worsen the situation.
To surrender to the hackers’ demands or not to surrender?
Among the most usually asked questions is whether the user should or should not pay the demanded ransom to the hackers. Such questions get more and more frequently asked at the same rate as the number of .Cryp1 Virus infections gets bigger. All we can say is that it totally depends on you. To pay and to trust the hackers or not to pay and to risk your files are both matters of personal choice. The only advice we can give you is to never pay the ransom as making the payment can only motivate such criminals to continue with their illegal activities and harass more and more people. Once more- we want to remind you that even if you complete the payment, you will still have no reason to believe that the access to your files will be recovered. In fact, you should never trust those cyber criminals who are blackmailing you. What’s more, always remember that making business with hackers can itself be considered a crime. Don’t ever forget that these deceitful people are not different from any other criminals.
