If you have not taken any measures to keep your operating system guarded against malware, you might be facing Kripto64 Ransomware soon enough. Has this malicious infection violated your virtual security already? At the time of research, this infection was not functional, but we do not reject the possibility that could become active. If it is activated, it should encrypt files and showcase a message pushing the victim to pay a ransom. Since the ransom note is represented in Turkish, and the ransom requested is 500 Turkish Lira, the target is obvious. Of course, there is always a possibility that this infection will invade the operating systems of users who do not speak the language. Also, different versions of this infection might be created. Whatever the situation might be, deleting Kripto64 Ransomware is crucial, and the information presented via this report should help you remove this devious infection with ease.
Hidden-Tear is an open source code that was used for the development of Karmen Ransomware, Gc47 Ransomware, Redants Ransomware, and many other infections. Kripto64 Ransomware was built using it as well. Just like most other threats from the group, this ransomware should employ an AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) algorithm for the encryption of your personal files. Unfortunately, the process is silent, and you are unlikely to notice it. In fact, you are unlikely to notice the entrance of this ransomware either. According to our research, it is most likely that you will be exposed to the installer of this devious infection via a corrupted spam email. As soon as you open the Kripto64 Ransomware launcher attached to it, the encryption begins. Of course, this is how the infection should work in theory. In reality, it does not look like this threat has been fully developed yet. We do not even know if this threat will work. Needless to say, as long as the possibility is there, we have to identify this ransomware as a potential threat.
When Kripto64 Ransomware is done with your files, it should introduce you to a window entitled “Dikkat.” According to the information represented via this window, you should pay a ransom of 500 Turkish Lira to get your files back. When testing this infection, the ransom note did not include contact information or instructions on how to pay the requested ransom. All in all, even if it becomes possible to pay the fee you are introduced to, you should think long and hard if you want to give your money to cyber criminals. Also, remember that no one can force the creator of Kripto64 Ransomware to provide you with a decryption key or tool, and so you have to consider the possibility of giving up your savings for no good reason. In case the infection is fully functional, and you have decided to pay the ransom to get your files back, make sure that you remove it even if your files are fully restored. If you cannot or do not want to pay the ransom, look into legitimate file decryption applications; maybe they will help.
Since Kripto64 Ransomware was not fully developed at the time of research, the removal guide below is pretty generic. All you have to do is delete the launcher file, and that is it. Of course, if you have faced a different version of this malicious threat, the chances are that you might have to handle the removal process a little differently.
