Do you know what SuperCrypt Ransomware is?
SuperCrypt Ransomware is a serious computer infection that might enter the system and encrypt all of your files. This threat acts in a similar manner as CryptoWall and CryptoLocker; thus, it is not surprising that SuperCrypt Ransomware will not only encrypt files, but also place a ransom message on the desktop. As the research implemented by the specialists at spyware-techie.com has shown, SuperCrypt Ransomware is aimed at users living in Europe; however, it does not mean that it cannot infect other computers. If it has already happened, there is no point in trying to remove SuperCrypt Ransomware. It is because this ransomware encrypts files and then disappears from the system.
As the present research has shown, SuperCrypt Ransomware works on Windows Servers that use Windows 2003 or Windows Server operating systems. This infection travels using request for open default RDP port 3389. It has been found out that SuperCrypt Ransomware might be delivered to the infected machine via terminal services. It is also possible that cyber criminals will attack the system manually. There is no doubt that you will notice the presence of SuperCrypt Ransomware because it will place a message on your desktop asking to pay 300 Euros. You will have to send 1 bitcoin or make a payment via Ukash. Even though there is a possibility that your files will be decrypted after the payment, you should still consider whether you really want to pay money for cyber criminals. Keep in mind that it is unknown whether you will gain access to your files.
There are many infections that might encrypt your files. However, there is no doubt that you have encountered SuperCrypt Ransomware if a similar message (see below) appears on the desktop:
If you’re reading this text file, then ALL your FILES are BLOCKED with the most strongest military cipher.
All your data – documents, photos, videos, backups – everything is encrypted.
Unfortunately, even a trustworthy malware remover will not be able to decrypt your files. However, you should not worry about them if you have a backup. Of course, you might decide to pay a ransom as well; however, you should keep in mind that there is no guarantee that you will be able to open them after making a payment.
In non-techie terms:
There are many infections out there and they might enter your system without your permission. Therefore, you should better take of your system’s security in advance. The easiest way to do that is to install an antimalware tool (e.g. SpyHunter) on the system. In addition, do not forget to scan your PC periodically.
