CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware
CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware is a threat that will enter your system illegally and then will a) open a window with a countdown timer or b) lock your personal files, including your documents, music, videos, and pictures. You might wonder how it is possible that this malicious application can either do this or that. Actually, there is a very simple explanation to this. Two different variants of CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware are available. Specialists do not consider this threat prevalent malware, but it might still enter your system illegally. Because of this, you cannot keep your system unprotected. If you have already encountered CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware, you must delete this infection from your computer as soon as possible because this malicious application will not remove itself automatically one day. In fact, it might even lock more files on your computer if launched. Some users think that they could get rid of this malicious application by paying a ransom it demands, but this will not happen, believe us. CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware will not be removed from your system for you. Additionally, it is not very likely that you will get your files decrypted if you make a payment expecting that they will be unlocked for you. The same can be said about the window opened on Desktop – it is not very likely that it will be closed once crooks receive your money.
CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware is a newly-developed malicious application that comes in two different variants that are both malicious. The first variant of this ransomware infection places a window over victims’ Desktop. It does not contain X, i.e. it cannot be closed normally, but you can close it yourself by tapping Alt+F4 on your keyboard, so we see no reason why you should send money to malicious software developers. It should be noted that this variant of CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware demands 0.3 BTC (~ 1864 USD). Speaking about the second variant of this threat, it will not open any window on your screen if you ever encounter it. As research carried out by specialists at pcthreat.com has shown, this variant should lock files instead. Ransomware infections usually target documents, pictures, music, and many other personal files. Once they are locked, they demand a ransom. If .CyberSCCP has been appended to your files, you should be able to locate a ransom note READ_IT.txt too. You will not find the amount of money you have to send to crooks indicated there, but there is no doubt that the only thing they want from you is your money: “Send me some bitcoin or COOOOOOKIEEEEESSS.” We are sure you will find out how much the special decryption tool costs if you send an email to crooks. Of course, if you are not going to pay a cent, it is definitely a waste of time writing emails to cyber criminals.
If you have encountered CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware, your computer must be unprotected. That is, we believe a security application is not enabled on your system. Most probably, you act quite carelessly too. There are hundreds of users who still open spam emails and their attachments out of curiosity even if they know that this might bring them a lot of problems. We hope that you will ignore all spam emails you receive after you read this report, but, to be frank, you might still encounter malicious software because it might be distributed in a different way as well. According to our security specialists, it would be smart to download new programs from their official websites only. You should especially be careful with keygens and cracks – malware might be disguised as useful software.
Whether or not your files have been encrypted, CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware must be removed from the system ASAP. If this infection has opened a window on your Desktop, you can close it by pressing Alt+F4. Then, you could delete this infection manually. How do you remove this malicious application? First, you need to find the malicious file you have launched recently. It is the launcher of the ransomware infection. Second, delete the ransom note (READ_IT.txt) if it has been dropped on your computer by this threat. Last but not least, we recommend scanning the system with a diagnostic scanner. Actually, you can remove CyberSCCP Cryptor Ransomware from your PC with an antimalware tool fully regardless of your level of expertise in malware removal.
