Cryptolite Ransomware

What is Cryptolite Ransomware?

There are several different ransomware infections that encrypt users’ files and append the .encrypted filename extension, but Cryptolite Ransomware is undoubtedly the one that has slithered onto your computer, discovered where you keep your precious personal files, and locked them if you have also found a window with a message opened on your Desktop. Specialists cannot guarantee 100% that Cryptolite Ransomware will open it on the screen in all the cases, but, according to them, it should open a screen-locking window with a message. Cryptolite Ransomware does not seem to be sophisticated malicious software, so it is very likely that you could close this window by killing the malicious process representing malware using Task Manager. Unfortunately, this will not be enough to erase the ransomware infection and unlock files.

What does Cryptolite Ransomware do?

There is one feature that unites almost all ransomware infections – they have been developed to extract money from users. Usually, they try to achieve this goal by locking users’ screens, personal files, or both. Speaking about Cryptolite Ransomware, it should both open the screen-locking window and encrypt personal files, including documents, pictures, music, and others. Ransomware infections use strong ciphers to lock files on victims’ computers. Cryptolite Ransomware is no exception. If you ever encounter it, it is very likely that you will find your personal data locked. You do not need to go to inspect all your personal files one by one to find out which of them have been locked because, as mentioned at the beginning of the previous paragraph, this particular ransomware infection appends the .encrypted filename extension. Do not waste your time trying to remove it – your files will not be decrypted. Some users believe that they will only get their files back if they pay a ransom. In this case, it would be 0.5 Bitcoin, but you should not consider sending money to malicious software developers because there are no guarantees that your files will be decrypted for you, or you would get the special decryptor from cyber criminals. Instead, we encourage you to use the following decryption key: GuBlZEpxPFqDAtjNh7c6mKs4Iy9Mrfw2UYvn3ei5HTgaO1dCbz8QXLJk0RVoW. Even though the key that can unlock files is known, we cannot guarantee 100% that you could unlock encrypted data with it.

They still have several pieces of advice for you – do not ignore them if you do not want to encounter this malicious application.

Second, do not download software from a suspicious website ever again because you might install malware on your computer without even realizing that.

Last but not least, security specialists working at recommend scanning the system with an antimalware scanner periodically to maintain its cleanliness. There is a reason they say so. Existing malware might download and install more infections on your computer, so make sure you keep it malware-free.
