FCrypt Ransomware is a threat that uses the AES encryption algorithm to make the victim’s data unusable. According to our specialists, it can encipher various types of files, so receiving it could ruin a lot of valuable records. To recognize the malware, the users should have a look at the encrypted data. The files affected by this malicious program should have a second extension called .FCrypt. Another thing that may help recognize the threat is the ransom note titled #HELP-DECRYPT-FCRYPT1.1#.txt and placed on the victim’s Desktop. If you have a reason to believe you came across this malicious application, we encourage you to read our full article. In the text, we will explain how the malware works and why you should not trust its creators. Should you choose to erase FCrypt Ransomware, you might may want to check the deletion steps located at the end of the article too.
FCrypt Ransomware could slip in after opening an unreliable email attachment or software installer. Our specialists say it could be any file downloaded or received from untrustworthy sources. Therefore, one could say the threat might be received by those who are not careful enough when interacting with doubtful data. The safest thing to do would be to keep away from potentially unsafe material. However, if despite your suspicions you still want to launch a questionable file, we highly recommend at least checking it with a reliable security tool first. If it contains malicious material, the tool ought to detect it and warn you about it.
Unfortunately, if the user launches infected file, FCrypt Ransomware should start encrypting his files. Our specialists report the malware is after data with the following extensions: .xls, .doc, .xlsx, .docx, .pdf, .rtf, .cdr, .psd, .dwg, .cd, .mdb, .1cd, .dbf, .sqlite, .jpg, .jpeg, .zip, .bmp, .txt, .rar, .mp4, .sql, .c, .cpp, .java, .php, .asp, .svg, .psd, .bak, and .html. After the files get enciphered they should have a second extension mentioned earlier (e.g., picture.bmp.FCrypt). Next, the malicious program is supposed to create a text document titled #HELP-DECRYPT-FCRYPT1.1#.txt on the victim’s Desktop. Launching it should display a message saying: “All your important files are encrypted and have the extension: .FCrypt.” Moreover, the text should also claim the hackers can decrypt data and no payment is required. Needless to say, there would be no point in creating FCrypt Ransomware if the hackers would decrypt victims’ data without getting anything in return. Thus, it is quite possible the note does not reveal their true intentions.
Our advice is to erase FCrypt Ransomware even though it will not undo the damage done to your data. That is because contacting the hackers might end up badly, as there are no guarantees they will not try to trick you. If you think dealing with them could be dangerous as well, we advise you to remove the malware manually or with a chosen security tool. Users who feel up to the task could follow the instructions located below and those who prefer using an antimalware tool should perform a full system scan after which the deletion button ought to eliminate all identified threats.
