Crybrazil Ransomware Removal Guide

Do you know what Crybrazil Ransomware is?

Crybrazil Ransomware is a malicious infection that can corrupt some of your most sensitive, personal files on your Windows operating system. According to our malware researchers, this particular threat is capable of encrypting over 250 different types of files, and photos, documents, archives, and others kinds of files could fall into this number. Without a doubt, you do not want this malware slithering in, and if you still have time, you should immediately back up your personal files and install trustworthy anti-malware software to protect your operating system against the invasion of this threat. What should you do if it got in already? If that is the situation, it is most likely that you will not be able to recover your personal files. That is what you face when you let malware in. In this report, we discuss the activity of the infection and ways to delete it. Unfortunately, you have to note that you will not recover your personal files by removing Crybrazil Ransomware.

The malicious Crybrazil Ransomware was created using the Hidden-Tear open source-code. Other threats that have emerged because of it include Cyberresearcher Ransomware, Horros Ransomware, and Sorry HT Ransomware. This particular infection is targeted at Portuguese-speaking Windows users, and it appears that it is most likely to be spread in Brazil; judging by the name of the threat. Speaking of the name, it derives from the unique extension – “.crybrazil” – that is attached to all files encrypted by the infection. You will not be able to read the files with this extension, unless you are able to obtain a decryptor, and the creator of Crybrazil Ransomware is not going to provide you with it. First of all, they might ask a huge ransom in return for a decryptor, but you need to be smart about this. If you pay the ransom, it is unlikely that you will gain anything from it. Most likely, you will find yourself in the same situation as before wasting your money. Even if you are miraculously provided with a decryptor and your files get decrypted, you still cannot forget about the removal of the infection.Crybrazil Ransomware Removal GuideCrybrazil Ransomware screenshot

Before the devious Crybrazil Ransomware encrypts your personal files, it has to slither in, and it is most likely to do that using misleading spam emails with the encryptor attached and represented as a harmless file. Cyber criminals could also drop the infection using unauthorized remote access to the operating system. Once in, the threat encrypts files immediately, and then it replaces the original wallpaper with ranso4.jpg, a file that depicts an image of a clown along with a short message. This message informs that files were encrypted and that victims must email LOSALPHAGROUP@PROTONMAIL.COM for recovery. Crybrazil Ransomware also creates SUA_CHAVE.html on the Desktop. This HTML file contains a hyperlink entitled “O QUE ESTÁ ACONTECENDO?” that opens 3e24c23r2213122c1cxdsxsd.unaux[.]com. If you click the link, you could be redirected to various malicious pages, and so it is not recommended. Without a doubt, you want to remove these files when you delete Crybrazil Ransomware itself.

In non-techie terms:

You might be unable to salvage your personal files if Crybrazil Ransomware slithers into your operating system, and that is because this threat uses a complicated encryption algorithm. The creator of this malware uses an image file to inform that the victims can decrypt personal files by emailing them. Of course, if you do that, you can expect a response with further instructions, and these are likely to involve a ransom payment. You need to think long and hard if you want to take the risk. Our research team warns that you are unlikely to gain anything by paying it, and, of course, you do not want to waste your money. It should not be hard for you to delete Crybrazil Ransomware if you can find every single component used by this malware. If manual removal is not possible, you can rely on anti-malware software. In fact, this is the option we recommend for everyone.
