Exocrypt (XTC) Ransomware Virus - Variants keep appearing
« on: April 24, 2018, 04:37:15 pm »
Over a dozen new variants of Exocrypt ransomware (aka XTC ransomware) virus are surfacing over the period of the last 2 weeks.

Some versions are functional and some seem to be still in development.
Below you can see a snapshot of one ransom note window of the Exocrypt virus:



The ransom sum that is demanded from victims is usually in the area of 50 British Pounds,
 but that can differ among variants, infected computers and could also change in due time,
 if any Exocrypt ransomware variant changes its pricing after coming out of development.
