You do not want to face any infection, but you especially do not want to face Ccryptor Ransomware because this threat encrypts files. When it does that, the data within in changed, and that is why your files become unreadable. If you cannot read your personal files, that means that you cannot use them, and that can be very problematic for you. What’s the point in storing thousands of personal photos if you cannot view them? What’s the point in sorting through work, school, and personal documents if you cannot read the text inside them? Without a doubt, having your files corrupted can be catastrophic, which is why you need to be prepared. The best thing you can do for your personal files is to created backups, which we recommend doing online or using external drives. If you have copies of your files stored safely, you will not need to panic if something happens to the original files. If you do not have backups, you might decide to postpone the removal of Ccryptor Ransomware, but that is a not a good idea.
It is easy to spot which files were corrupted by Ccryptor Ransomware because the infection adds a unique extension to all of them: “.ccryptor.” As you can guess, this extension has dictated the name of the infection itself. It is not yet fully clear how this malware spreads, but if we had to guess, we would say that it probably uses spam emails, malicious downloaders, other infections, and system vulnerabilities to get in. So, if you secure your operating system, install all updates, and, most importantly, act cautiously, your chances of facing Ccryptor Ransomware or any other kind of infection will be minimized. Speaking of other infections, did you know that there are thousands of ransomware threats in the wild? Some of the more recent ones include email@example.com Ransomware, Sorryforthis Ransomware, and Domn Ransomware. Removal guides that show how to eliminate these infections are already available on this website. Needless to say, if you delete the malware that is currently occupying space on your operating system, you still need to take all other threats into consideration, and that is why Windows protection is so important.
If Ccryptor Ransomware slithers in successfully, it can encrypt all important picture and document formats. That means that .doc, .pdf, .txt, .jpg, .bmp, and other types of files should become unreadable. Although the encryption of your files should be silent, you should learn about the damage quickly enough because the threat also drops a file named “read me.txt.” It is possible that copies of this file would be created in all folders containing the corrupted files. At the time of research, the file was not dropped by Ccryptor Ransomware, and that is because the infection was not running properly. Although we cannot know for sure what kind of information is presented via this file, it is most likely that cybercriminals will use it to trick you into contacting them and/or paying a ransom in return for a tool that, allegedly, could restore all of your personal files. Without a doubt, we do not recommend paying attention to the demands or promises made by cybercriminals because, most likely, they cannot be trusted.
You can see a manual removal guide below. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to delete Ccryptor Ransomware manually because we cannot know whether or not you will be able to get rid of the launcher file. Your best bet is to delete all recently downloaded files, but that might not cut it if the infection is dropped in a completely random place or if its name is identical to the names of legitimate files. For example, we know that one of the infection’s components is called “AdobeUpdate.exe,” and the launcher could have a similarly confusing and misleading name. All in all, if manual removal is not something you can handle, we strongly recommend installing legitimate anti-malware software to have your operating system cleaned automatically. Once you have Ccryptor Ransomware removed and the system protected, you can move on to replacing the encrypted files with backup copies. If you want to make sure that you do not face other ransomware infections in the future, remember to be more cautious online.
