CrypMIC Ransomware is a dangerous threat that is similar to CryptXXX Ransomware in that it uses a similar interface to relay a notification that claims your files are encrypted and you must pay a ransom fee within 100 hours. Through the same connection protocol as CryptXXX, CrypMIC Ransomware is nearly an exact copy that may use the same command and control servers for connection.
Through use of an advanced AES-256 encryption algorithm, CrypMIC Ransomware may encrypt files without any way of decrypting them other than from obtaining the proper decryption key, which is at a fee of 1.2 to 2.4 Bitcoin. At 1.2 Bitcoin the fee equates to $798.36 USD and paying the higher 2.4 Bitcoin amount after the time limit has expired will cost victimized computer users about $1,569.72 USD. Paying the fee may grant a decryption key and all files may be decrypted to restore normal functions to the infected computer. However, the CrypMIC Ransomware may remain on the computer. Removal of CrypMIC Ransomware can be done by using the proper antimalware tool.
The way in which CrypMIC Ransomware spreads is the same as CryptXXX, which uses the Neutrino exploit kit that is known for sending an abundance of spam messages with malicious ZIP file attachments. In other spread methods, computers may become infected with CrypMIC Ransomware through malicious site downloads or scripts running on sites that mask malicious links under advertisements.
The recommendations for preventing infection from CrypMIC Ransomware start and end with the avoidance of opening spam email attachments or downloading questionable software or files. Additionally, limiting the clicks of annoying advertisements may be a benefit to prevent infection of CrypMIC Ransomware on your computer.
