How to remove (uninstall) Crypy Ransomware

The huge wave of ransomware attacks is growing bigger day by day. New ransomware viruses are appearing literally out of nowhere, and attacking the users with help of torrents, file-sharing services, email spam and in other ways. Few days ago we began to receive the complaints on the new ransomware that decrypts the files with help of AES-256 encryption algorithm, and calls itself Crypy. Even the most plain and roughly made ransomware is very dangerous, because the complexity of encryption doesn't depend on the skill of developers. It is just imposssible to break the cipher without key, so if the ransomware had encrypted the files - you better find the solution of the problem, and you better do it as fast as you can.

Crypy Ransomware

Crypy ransomware acts almost like all other suchlike viruses, but there are diverstity in encrypting methods. Usually, when ransomware begins to encrypt the files on victim's PC, it acts independently, and only reports about the end of encryption process. Crypy sends the report about each encrypted file and receives the unique key for it. That's why the encryption via Crypy ransomware takes a lot more time then in other cases. This means that it will take 2-3 hours or even more, especially if you got many files to encrypt. The encryption affects all types of files, including video, audio, text, pictures and PDF. The program files that are placed in the "Program Files" "Windows" and other suchlike directories remain undamaged, because hackers want just to extort money from you, and if your PC won't launch - you won't pay the ransom. When the encryption is compleete and all keys are sent and received, virus displays this message:


All your files are encrypted with strong chiphers.

Decrypting of your files is only possible with the decryption program, which is on our secret server.

Note that every 6 hours, a random file is permanently deleted. The faster you are, the less files you will lose.

Also, in 96 hours, the key will be permanently deleted and there will be no way of recovering your files.

To receive your decryption program contact one of the emails:

  • 1. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • 2. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Just inform your identification ID and we will give you next instruction.

Your personal identification ID: XXXXXXXXX


Ransomware can be also separated on 'passive" and "aggressive" ones. The passive ones just don't care about what you will do with the encrypted files. They just do their job and wait for you to pay. The aggressive ones are always pushing it: they say are removing the files, increasing the price of ransom, and doing other annoying stuff. It might be an indicator of weakness, because the web-scammers are afraid that their srever or the program itself will be cracked before they get the money. Anyway, the average user isn't capable of decrypting the AES-256 cipher, even if he will got the most powerful computer on Earth, and the thousand years of time. So, the decision is simple: do not pay the ransom, and don't contact with scammers in any form. Even if you want your files back, it is better to wait until the cyber-security professionals will hack Crypy Ransomware server and release the decent decryption tool. There is another reason not to pay: you don't have any guarrantees that hackers will return your files. So, if you want to go the most secure and reasonable way - just remove Crypy Ransomware from your computer, and put the encrypted files in the separate filder, until the decryptor will be developed.

Methods to remove Crypy Ransomware

The removal of ransomware is very simple, and it has only one difference from the removal of usual adware: the process must be performed in the safe mode. This is so because ransomware is very tricky and it might try to delete your files completely, before you remove it.

How to protect the computer?

Although it's pretty easy to uninstall Crypy Ransomware, no one could like to do this each day. It's not profitably for swindlers to develop serious viruses, so they are developing hundreds of low-grade programs instead of several really perilous ones. So, you should understand not just how to delete viruses, but firstly, how to avoid them. Here are some tips which may be helpful for you to keep your PC clean

  • E-mails are very often used to distribute malware. You must be wary of all e-mails which contain additional files, or the ones that were sent from unknown addresses.
  • Be careful with the propositions to make money in the Internet, and the incredibly profitable deals. 80% of these offers are harmless, designed to increase the rating of the web-page, where they are placed, but the last 20% of them are leading to true scam schemes which will make you experience the serious losses.
  • The installation of any software, and particularly the "cracked" ones, should be closely revised. There will be a lot of important information such as installation folder, the terms of agreement and other things. Most of adware use a method called "Partner setup" or "fast installation", which means that in addition to the useful program you get 3-4 useless ones. This manner of installation is completely harmful, because you can't be sure about the additional programs.

These directions are not hard to abide, but they all are allowing you to avoid the infection by perilous software. Even if the implementation of the hints is causing you inconvenience - you need to remember: it is much better to avoid contamination than to experience its effects. Let your machine be secure and clean, and don't forget that we're always here to answer any question about the unwanted programs.
