Security researchers have detected a new iteration of the CrySiS Ransomware which processes victim files with the .gamma extension. This new version follows the well-known behavior patterns and can cause many dangers to the infected hosts. It is based on the same modular platform and the criminals can create custom copies depending on the targets.
Our article provides an overview of the virus operations and it also may be helpful in attempting to remove the virus.
CrySiS Ransomware – Distribution Tactics
The CrySiS ransomware is being distributed using various tactics. The hackers behind it seem to have launched a global network campaign against computer users of all types — both individual users, companies and enterprise clients. A common tactic is to use a SPAM email campaign directly against the targets incorporating phishing tactics. They are designed to appear as messages that have been sent by popular Internet services or sites that the users might use. The emails can either contain the virus files (or payload carriers) as direct attachment or they are linked in the body contents.
