is a menacing cyber threat, which belongs to the ransomware family. And, that’s a family that you never want to cross. These infections are malicious, hazardous, and immensely damaging. They’re designed by wicked people, who cannot be trusted, which is why it should come as no surprise that the UltraCrypt tool is highly unreliable. Ransomware programs are designed to operate following a simple pattern: invade your PC, encrypt every file they come across, demand a ransom for decryption. And, if you fail to comply, the tools have various responses. Some delete files, others raise the requested ransom. The scenario varies for the different tools. When it comes to UltraCrypt, it employs both tactics. Once it has taken your data hostage and informed you of its requests if you don’t follow through on them in the given time frame, the infection doubles the ransom! And, if you attempt to remove the program yourself, it threatens to delete the key you’ll need to decrypt your files. With it lost, you won’t be able to get your data back. The ransomware clues you into all of that as soon as it’s done with the encryption process. It displays a message on your screen, which contains all of its demands and instructions on exactly how to follow through on them. And, here’s what experts advise you to do: forsake your files! Do NOT pay these people! If you pay up, your predicament will only worsen! Not only will you lose money, but you’ll also open the door to your personal and financial information to unknown individuals with hidden agendas. Needless to say, that is a terrible idea. And, remember how we stated that these people cannot be trusted? Even if you comply with their requirements, there are NO guarantees you’ll manage to decrypt your data. There are various ways they can deceive you, and NOT keep up their end of the bargain. So, accept the inevitable, and say goodbye to your files. Choose your privacy over your pictures and videos. It’s a hard choice, but it’s the right one.

How did I get infected with?

UltraCrypter is a deceitful and sneaky tool. It’s so skilled in the arts of slyness and subtlety that it manages to invade your computer, and remain hidden until it decides it’s time to clue you into its existence. That’s right. Not only does the tool gain entry but it also keeps you oblivious to it. And, how do you suppose it accomplishes that? Well, you provide the key ingredient – carelessness. Cyber threats like UltraCrypter use it to slither in undetected, usually as you’re installing a tool or an update. Yes, ransomware tends to turn to the old but gold means of infiltration as they’ve proven their worth over time. That can include hiding behind freeware, corrupted links, or sites or pretending to be a fake update, like Adobe Flash Player or Java. However, UltraCrypter’s most commonly used method, to dupe you into allowing it into your system, is spam email attachments. The infection is spread via an attachment made to look like a letter by an official institution or company. Fall for it, and you’re stuck with ransomware. That’s why it’s crucial to take everything with a grain of salt. Don’t give into gullibility and distraction, and don’t rush! Remember that sometimes even a little extra attention can save you a ton of troubles.

Why is UltraCrypter dangerous?

Once UltraCrypter slithers into your computer, it hardly wastes time. The infection goes to work and encrypts everything you have stored on your PC. And, we do mean everything. You better believe the tool leaves no stone unturned as it locks every picture, video, document, music file, etc. And, when it’s done, it supplies you with its requirements. In a nutshell, your data is now its captive, and if you wish to release it, you must pay a ransom. UltraCrypter uses an asymmetric encryption algorithm to get a hold of everything. And, it generates two keys. One is public (RSA-2048), and one is private (AES CBC-256) are generated. The private key is stored on the remote servers, which are controlled by the hackers. Naturally, that’s the one you want are have to pay for. The ransom amount is 1.2 Bitcoins, which is equivalent to around $644. That’s no small amount! But wait until you read the fine print. On the note, which the tool displays to inform you of your predicament, it’s clearly specified that you have four days to complete the transfer. If for some reason, you do not pay up, there are consequences. Once the given four days end, the requested ransom will grow in amount. It can reach over $1200 or even more! And, if you still refuse to pay after seven days time, your unique decryption key is destroyed. It may be a scenario, which you understandably wish to avoid, but understand this: even if you comply with every demand the tool has made, you could still end up with no access to your files, less money, and your personal and financial details in the hands of strangers. Yes, the people behind the ransomware infection cannot be trusted to keep their end of the deal. So, why do it? As harsh as it may seem, the best course of action you can take is let go of your data. It’s not worth your privacy.
