A few words on CrypMIC ‘s origin and nature
The origin of that disgusting virus can be traced back to the end of the previous millennium in Russia. That’s when programs identified as Ransomware appeared for the first time. Ransomware in general represents software that typically chooses the most regularly used data on someone’s PC, encodes it and then extorts money from the unfortunately affected user as ransom. If there ever was a really malicious and hard-to-deal-with virus, it is definitely CrypMIC .
The normal way of acting of Ransomware corresponds to the following pattern:
- The process of catching CrypMIC : that period begins when you come across a webpage, a torrent, a bundle or a spam email that’s carrying the virus. These are the most popular distribution methods. However, inside all those potential carriers you will find not only Ransomware, but a Trojan horse as well. In fact, CrypMIC uses the Trojan to exploit a program or system vulnerability and to enter your machine.
- The encryption process Ransomware performs: this is the time right after the infection has occurred. Normally, after CrypMIC has already been incorporated into your system, it does a scanning of your hard-drives to find which data you prefer visiting or/and using. Once it is ready with the research, the Ransomware is fully prepared to start encrypting that data from the scanning results.
However, such a process of encoding will sometimes consume substantial system resources and time and some users with limited system RAM and CPU may find out that an infection is going on before the encryption process is complete. In that case, our advice is to simply turn off your PC and wait for specialized help before you turn it on again. The process of encryption will usually appear in the Task Manager of your system as the program that requires most memory and processing power.
- The ransom alert notification: this is the period in which the infection gets revealed in most of the cases. If you are among the unfortunate users contaminated with Ransomware, you will find a disturbing notification on your monitor. It serves to inform you that your files have been locked up and you need to pay to access them again. Also it may contain payment requirements and deadlines.
If it is a very dangerous virus, can you remove it?
To remove this malware is possible. Nevertheless, getting rid of it doesn’t mean that you will recover your data ever again. The hackers, who are harassing you, may be so dishonest that they might have no intention of restoring back your control over your data. Though we cannot guarantee you that the solution provided below as to the restoration of your files will work, it is at least worth giving a try. Also, what is especially important when it comes to a type of Ransomware is to remember to clean the Trojan horse that comes with it as well, because often times that is what helped the virus enter your system. The removal guide below will help you deal with the infection.
Is it possible to avoid CrypMIC ?
While it is not always possible to deal with the already inflicted damage or infection, it is always possible to stay away from all versions of malware, including Ransomware. There are some simple healthy-online-performance tips that might come in handy to you in the future. Just always remember to regularly update your anti-virus program; to download software only from legal sources; to never open any suspicious letters, no matter whether they are in your Inbox or Spam folder. Also, make sure that you have your Firewall turned on, as it might be able to stop you from loading any dangerous websites. Be sure to run virus checks on your computer on a regular basis, to be sure that nothing suspicious has made its way on it.
|Danger Level||High (Ransomware are by far the worse threat you can encounter)|
|Symptoms||Normally none before the appearance of the ransom notification. Despite that, the whole system performance might be compromised.|
|Distribution Method||Typically within infected spam emails or their contagious attachments. Also in torrents and shareware.|
|Detection Tool||CrypMIC may be difficult to track down. Use SpyHunter – a professional parasite scanner – to make sure you find all files related to the infection.|
Reboot in Safe Mode (use this guide if you don’t know how to do it).
This is the first preparation.
Type msconfig in the search field and hit enter. A window will pop-up:
Go in Startup —> Uncheck entries that have “Unknown” as Manufacturer.
- Please note that ransomware may even include a fake Manufacturer name to its process. Make sure you check out every process here is legitimate.
Press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC simultaneously. Go to the Processes Tab. Try to determine which ones are a virus. Google them or ask us in the comments.
WARNING! READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING!
Right click on each of the virus processes separately and select Open File Location. End the process after you open the folder, then delete the directories you were sent to.
Type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter. Once inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus’s Name.
Search for the ransomware in your registries and delete the entries. Be extremely careful – you can damage your system if you delete entries not related to the ransomware.
Type each of the following in the Windows Search Field:
Delete everything in Temp. The rest just check out for anything recently added. Remember to leave us a comment if you run into any trouble!
