Frlock Ransomware

Frlock ransomware removal instructions

What are Frlock, Grlock, Itlock, Czlock, and Zalock?

Belonging to the MedusaLocker ransomware family, Frlock, Grlock, Itlock, Czlock, and Zalock are malicious programs, named after the extensions they add to the files they encrypt. These ransomwares operate by encrypting the data stored on infected systems - in order to demand payment for the decryption. In other words, they render files inaccessible/useless and request victims to pay - to recover the access/use. During the encryption process, affected files are appended with the ".frlock", ".grlock", ".itlock", ".czlock", or ".zalock" extensions - depending on the ransomware variant. For example, a file initially titled something like "1.jpg" would appear as "1.jpg.frlock", "1.jpg.grlock", "1.jpg.itlock", "1.jpg.czlock", or "1.jpg.zalock". After the encryption is complete, ransom notes - "Recovery_Instructions.html" - are dropped into compromised folders. All of the ransomware variants create identical notes.
