Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L is a clandestine ransomware Trojan which can encrypt the files found within your operating system before you even know it. The clandestine infection runs secretly until it presents an intimidating warning suggesting that you need to pay €150 (the sum may change) for the decryption of your files. Even though the infection is categorized as ransomware, it is not as misleading as most infections linked to this group. In fact, it works similarly to the infamous Crypto Ransomware and Cryptowall infections, both of which you should delete as well. We recommend reading the article to learn how to remove Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L and why this infection is so dangerous.
Experts who have analyzed Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L indicate that this threat uses the open-source GNUPG encryption tool to encrypt files on the operating system. It has been discovered that .xls, .doc, .docx, .pdf, .jpg, .jpeg, .zip, and other files may be the ones targeted by the threat. Unfortunately, once encrypted, these files are basically unsalvageable. Even if you pay the requested ransom, there are no guarantees that your documents, photos or PDF files will be decrypted. If Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L removal is not something you need to deal with yet, you need to make sure you safeguard the operating system. Note that the infection can be executed via malicious files, and these can enter using secretive drive-by download or social engineering scams. You also should keep in mind that the threat may travel bundled with other infections which you will need to delete as well.
Once Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L encrypts the files, it continues to steal passwords and user IDs linked to your virtual accounts. It has been revealed that this highly sensitive information can be sent to the remote location email@example.com. Due to this, it is essential you delete Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L regardless of whether you pay the ransom or not. Needless to say, if you do not remove the infection, your online accounts could be used to manipulate other computer users, distribute malware, and maybe even perform financial scams. Overall, once this part of the attack is completed, the infection displays a ransom demand, which usually is the main element computer users pay attention to.
It is important to delete Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L from the operating system; however, this will not help you decrypt the files. If you have the most important files backed-up, you should waste no more time and remove Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L. Unfortunately, if this is not the case, you have to make a big decision considering the ransom payment. We do not recommend paying the requested money; however, this is up to you. Either way, we suggest installing a reliable, automatic malware remover SpyHunter. It will scan the infected operating system and will delete all existing threats. You should install this software to have Trojan.Ransomcrypt.L removed even if the ransom has been paid already.
