Although CryMore Ransomware is unlikely to be a real threat, we have to discuss it because there is always a possibility that it will become stronger and capable of encrypting or even damaging your files. Our research team that was responsible for analyzing this infection suggests that there are two possible scenarios. In one of them, the ransomware is still being developed, in which case, we have to consider it as a real threat. In another one, this infection was created only to confuse and mislead gullible users. Of course, there is also a possibility that this ransomware serves as a test for someone who is trying to build and unleash truly powerful and lucrative infections. Hopefully, you do not face the version of this threat that can encrypt your files, but if that happens, you have to be very careful about following the demands because, for the most part, ransomware creators do not provide users with the file decryptors that are promised. Are you ready to delete CryMore Ransomware? If you are, let’s begin our conversation.
There are quite a few infections similar to the suspicious CryMore Ransomware. One of them is CVLocker Ransomware, and we have recently created a report discussing this threat and its removal. If you are interested in it, you can read about it as well. Although these infections were not created by the same party (at least, that is highly unlikely to be the case), and they do not have many similarities, both of them try to convince the user that files were encrypted just to trick them into paying for decryptors. In reality, these decryptors do not even exist because these infections cannot encrypt files! Surprisingly, quite a few infections that pose as real file-encryptors have emerged recently. Considering that ransomware is the most “popular” and most aggressive kind of malware nowadays, it is not surprising that even inexperienced cyber criminals and schemers are using the bad reputation of this malware. Since more and more users are familiar with this ransomware, more gullible users can be tricked into thinking that their files are encrypted even when that is not the case. Needless to say, the main goal behind fake ransomware threats is to make a profit. Well, CryMore Ransomware cannot bring any profit for its creators.
Let’s say you have been convinced that CryMore Ransomware has encrypted .exe, .ink, .jar, and other files found on your system using the AES encryption key, and you want to pay for a password that supposedly is the only thing that can free your files. If you decide that you want to pay the ransom, you face an issue of not being able to pay it. The ransomware gives you 48 hours, and the ransom note – which, by the way, shows up on the screen in a window – suggests that the price will go up every 12 hours. Furthermore, there is a threat suggesting that your files will be removed if you try to recover them yourself. However, there is no information about the ransom itself or how you are expected to pay it. The buttons represented via the CryMore Ransomware window do not work, and so paying the ransom is impossible. In case this infection starts encrypting your files, you might be unable to pay the ransom, but that is not a tragedy, considering that paying it is most likely to be useless.
If the strange CryMore Ransomware ransom note has popped up on your screen, you should follow the instructions below to learn how to disable it, as well as how to delete the executable that has launched the entire infection. Right after you remove CryMore Ransomware, you MUST scan your operating system, and you have to make sure that the malware scanner you are using is legitimate and reliable. Hopefully, the scanner informs that your operating system is completely clean, but if other infections are found, eliminate them without further delay. If you cannot do that yourself, employ an anti-malware tool that will do that for you. You should also employ this tool if you want to reinforce your system’s protection. Should you worry about that? You definitely should if you do not want other infections attacking your operating system and your files in the future.
