CryLock Ransomware

The CryLock ransomware is a variant of the Cryakl ransomware, a group that was first seen in 2020, like its predecessor CryLock attacks large enterprises, although regular users are also part of its targets.

The group uses various tactics to access the victim’s system, such as spam email campaigns, unsecured RDP port, malicious downloads, among others. These are just a few tactics, the group may use many others.

CryLock aims to target all stored files and also target backups, all to take away any opportunity to restore the files without the group’s assistance.

All encrypted files are given an extension to their name, consisting of the victim’s ID but a random three numbers and the group’s email address. Files with this extension are encrypted and can only be accessed with the decryption key that is kept by the group on a remote server.

After the encryption process is complete, the ransomware triggers a pop-up with the terms for paying the ransom,  but even with payment the return of the files may not happen.
