EnCryp13d Ransomware

Posted: January 22, 2021

The EnCryp13d Ransomware is a threatening piece of software that causes long-lasting damage to the files it can access on compromised computers. The accessible files will have their contents encrypted, and the file-locker will also rename them by adding the '.EnCryp13d' extension. After finishing the file-encryption attack, the EnCryp13d Ransomware will drop the message 'HOW TO DECRYPT FILES.txt' on the desktop. The ransom note tells victims that they cannot use the free decryption tool, and their only chance of recovering their data is to contact the attackers and follow their instructions.

The good news is that the statement of EnCryp13d Ransomware's authors is not entirely true. This file-locker borrows the encryption routine of the Xorist Ransomware, and this might mean that it is compatible with free decryption tools. You should certainly not agree to pay the ransom sum that EnCryp13d Ransomware's creators demand, even if it just $50.

Victims of the EnCryp13d Ransomware should use an anti-malware tool to remove the threatening application and prevent it from damaging more files. After this, use the free 'Xorist Decryptor' to try and restore access to your files.
