CryT0Y Ransomware


Named CryT0Y, the malware is capable of causing massive damage to any system it manages to infect by encrypting nearly all of the files stored on it. Users will find themselves unable to access any of their documents, pictures, movies, audio files, archives, databases, PDFs, etc. The wallpaper image contains a shortened version of the note while the pop-up window and the text file show the full set of instructions left by the cybercriminals. To receive the decryption software, users are told to transfer $80 worth of Bitcoins to the provided cryptocurrency wallet address. A countdown timer displayed in the pop-up window shows the remaining time before the encrypted files on the system will supposedly be deleted.
