The Crazy Ransomware is able to cause crazy amounts of damage to your files if its attack is not stopped on time. This malware is designed to encrypt important files' contents, and its authors try to extort the victim for money by promising to provide them with a decryption tool if they pay a ransom fee. The Crazy Ransomware shares similarities with the VoidCrypt Ransomware family, which gained some popularity near the end of 2020. Unfortunately, the Crazy Ransomware is not compatible with free data decryption tools, and its victims may need to look for alternative data recovery options. The latter method may not always deliver satisfying results, and the only guaranteed way to recover from Crazy Ransomware's attack is to restore the files from a backup.
When the Crazy Ransomware infiltrates a system successfully, it will begin to encrypt data immediately and then rename locked files by appending the extension '[email@example.com][<VICTIM ID>].crazy.' It also drops a ransom message via the file '!INFO.HTA', usually found on the desktop.
The criminals ask for a ransom payment and provide two emails for contact –firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. If the Crazy Ransomware has infiltrated your system, we advise you not to communicate with the hackers responsible for the attack. Instead, use an anti-malware tool to eliminate the Crazy Ransomware and then look for alternative data decryption and recovery options.
