CryptON Ransomware

CryptON ransomware removal instructions

What is CryptON?

CryptON (also known as Cry9, Cry36, Cry128, Nemesis, X3M) CryptoLocker is a ransomware-type virus discovered by Jakub Kroustek. Once infiltrated, CryptON CryptoLocker encrypts files using RSA-2048 and AES-256 encryption algorithms. During encryption, this virus renames encrypted files using the "[original_file_name].id-[victim’s ID]_steaveiwalker@india.com_" pattern. For instance, "sample.jpg" might be renamed to "sample.jpg.id-3057868259_steaveiwalker@india.com_". Following successful encryption, CryptON CryptoLocker changes the desktop wallpaper and creates a text file ("COMO_ABRIR_ARQUIVOS.txt"), placing it in each existing folder containing encrypted files. Note that CryptON CryptoLocker is not related to previously-discovered Crypton ransomware.
