Do you know what Alpha Crypt is?
Alpha Crypt is a ransomware infection that might enter your system if your PC is unprotected. This threat acts like TeslaCrypt Ransomware. In fact, some scholars say that Alpha Crypt has several functions and files that belong to TeslaCrypt ransomware. Like previously published ransomware infections, Alpha Crypt is a very serious threat. If it manages to enter, you will notice that you cannot even access the majority of your files. Do not worry; all these files can be recovered from a backup, but you still have to remove Alpha Crypt virus from the system. We will explain you how to do that in this article.
If Alpha Crypt enters your system, it will encrypt your files and add .ezz extension to all of them. In addition, you will see a message on your screen (your wallpaper will be changed) or you will notice a .txt message saying that “all your documents, photos, databases, and other important files have been encrypted with the strongest encryption key RSA-2048". It is clear from the message placed by Alpha Crypt ransomware that it will not decrypt your files unless you pay money.
