Symantec tool helps you get rid of file encrypting malware

Posted on Tuesday, November 03 2009 @ 18:44 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Symantec has released a new tool for victims of Trojan.Ramvicrype, this new Trojan is ransomware that encrypts your files and fools you into paying money to free your data. You can find more details over here.
In contrast to the above threats, Trojan.Ramvicrype does not make a direct demand for cash in return for keys. How are they making their money here? It turns out that entering the term ‘vicrypt’ into a search engine leads us to a company offering a fix, which of course is a charged service. So, there was a reason for that file extension after all.
