Green_Ray Ransomware

Green_Ray ransomware removal instructions

What is Green_Ray?

Green_Ray is ransomware identical to Mahasaraswati and JohnyCryptor. This ransomware encrypts files using an asymmetric encryption algorithm, generating public (to encrypt) and private (to decrypt) keys during encryption. In addition, Green_Ray extends the name of each compromised file with "green_ray(@)aol.com.xtbl", thus making it straightforward to determine which files are encrypted.

   
UltraCrypter Ransomware

UltraCrypter ransomware removal instructions

What is UltraCrypter?

UltraCrypter is an updated version of CryptXXX ransomware. As with CryptXXX, UltraCrypter is distributed using the Angler Exploit Kit. In fact, these viruses are practically identical. UltraCrypter uses an asymmetric RSA-4096 algorithm to encrypt many of the files stored on the infiltrated system. Therefore, public (encryption) and private (decryption) keys are generated and are stored on remote servers. Decryption without the private key is impossible. Furthermore, UltraCrypter adds a .cryp1 extension to the name of each encrypted file. Following successful encryption, UltraCrypter generates three different files: .bmp (which is also set as the desktop wallpaper); .txt, and; .html. These files have an identical naming format - [Victim’s personal ID].

   
JohnyCryptor Ransomware

JohnyCryptor is another ransomware-type virus that stealthily infiltrates systems and encrypts stored files. During encryption, JohnyCryptor generates a "How to decrypt your files.txt" file, placing it on the desktop. It also changes the desktop background. This behavior is common to ransomware-type malware.

   
Black Shades Ransomware

Black Shades ransomware removal instructions

What is Black Shades?

Black Shades is a ransomware-type virus that encrypts files using the RSA-4096 encryption algorithm. This is an asymmetric encryption type and, therefore, public (to encrypt) and private (to decrypt) keys are generated during encryption. The private key is stored on remote servers controlled by cyber criminals. To receive this key and restore the files, victims must pay a ransom. Furthermore, Block Shades appends the name of each encrypted file with a .silent extension.
