Criptografado Ransomware – Encryption
What is known for the encryption process of the Criptografado ransomware is that the cryptovirus places the .[[email protected]].CRIPTOGRAFADO extension to all locked files. What is more, the encryption algorithm used by the virus is AES, but some researchers oppose that idea. However, it is known that the new variant of the virus encrypts only in about 20 countries.
The targeted extensions of files which are sought to get encrypted are currently unknown and if a list is discovered, it will be posted here as the article gets updated. The files used most by users and which are probably encrypted are from the following categories:
- Audio files
- Video files
- Document files
- Image files
- Backup files
- Banking credentials, etc
The Criptografado cryptovirus could be set to erase all the Shadow Volume Copies from the Windows operating system with the help of the following command:
→vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet
In case the above-stated command is executed that will make the encryption process more efficient. That is due to the fact that the command eliminates one of the prominent ways to restore your data.
