Cryp1 is very similar to Crypz ransomware, it’s predecessor regarding parameters. There are only a few differences between them, and the most notable of them are the name and the used extension (it’s now cryp1).Additionally, the file extension list that can be encrypted has now been slightly increased, there is now a text message with a ransom demand, and this message specifies a URL linking to another website. The payment amount is standard, and it’s up to about $ 500 and as well as most other issues of ransomware virus.

Cryp1 ransomware virus

The way this Cryp1 malware penetrate is similar to other ransomware. This includes viral e-mail attachments, infected websites, and downloads together with other programs. Hackers don’t need to develop any new ways to infect a computer because the existing ones are working very well and no one even knows how many years it would have been to open an application in the mail without even bothering to look at them. After infecting the PC, the virus scans the hard drive, finds all files/document which can be encrypted and then do its work. The risks are all the formats of text and images file likewise audio, video, PDF and many others. In fact, should your computer be infected with Cryp1, it would be nothing more than programs. The virus does not go to the system and program files so that the user can switch ON the computer, open the website and then pay the ransom.

How to remove Cryp1 Virus from your computer

Removing the virus from your computer is not a difficult part of the task, but it is indeed necessary. If before the virus infection you have a backup of your data or the whole computer, then you would have no option than to remove the virus from your system before restoring the backup. The same thing is needed if you are not paying the ransom and want to try restoring the files on your own. If the files are important ones that you need, and probably you have not done any backups before the infection, then you should pay a ransom but after paying the required amount and the files have been restored, then the virus needs to be removed. You can do this manually yourself by following our instructions.

How to decrypt your infected files

Data Recovery - This is the most challenging and time-consuming aspect of the problem. Firstly, for you not to be deceived, the data cannot be decrypted without using the public and private cypher keys. The encryption algorithm used by these programs is very strong, and to destroy it, because it requires a massive computing power and lots of time.However, these hackers are at times lazy and "lend" each other’s achievements or to deceive unsuspecting users. So, therefore, we advise you to get and use the Kaspersky Decryptor service. Presently this program can decrypt files encrypted by well-known viruses, and it may as well manage your problem too.

Should the option of the Kaspersky Decryptor did not work, you have another option. I discussed how to restore from the shadowed copies. Shadow Volume Copies is an inbuilt service of the Windows OS. This service performs one function, which is it copies the files every time they are changed or removed. That is, when the virus encrypted your files and deleted the originals, the system made a backup. However, we do not guarantee you 100% successful recovering of your data. The reason is that many of this ransomware can delete the shadow copies. This is an important process so that the copies can’t be removed insensibly. Even when the virus tries removing it, a warning message will appear on the desktop that some programs want to make a change to the system settings. If you remember that this warning message come up before you received the ransom note that the shadow copies have been deleted. In case you don’t remember something like this, we advise you to take the advantage of using the most reliable software that works with shadow copies: ShadowExplorer and Recuva. These are licensed software from proven developers, and you can find their official website in the detailed operating instructions. Best of luck in removing the virus and may the ransomware no longer disturb you!
