What is Crypto Virus?
Crypto-type malware is particularly nasty to deal with because it encrypts files. While an infected file has had code added to it which antivirus can remove, an encrypted file isn’t repairable without the unique encryption key that was used. The criminals using crypto-type malware intend to sell you the unique key, giving you access to your files for a price. For this reason, crypto-type malware is also frequently called Ransomware.
The key to dealing with crypto-type malware is prevention and planning. While it is assumed you have antivirus and IPS protection in place, the criminals using crypto-malware are constantly updating code to avoid detection by these systems.
Typically, we see crypto-type malware delivered by exploit kits on compromised web pages. Exploit kits actively scan a visiting machine and deliver threats through any exploitable vulnerabilities it was able to detect. For this reason we advise that along with IPS, the operating systems, web browsers, Java installations, and all other software be kept up to date with the latest patches.
