How does CryptoLockerEU Ransomware work?

CryptoLockerEU is a type of malicious software that locks up your computer and demands a ransom to unlock it. This ransomware is particularly dangerous because it encrypts your files, making them inaccessible unless you pay the ransom. Attackers spread CryptoLockerEU through email attachments and websites that host malicious ads. When you open an email attachment or visit a website with malicious ads, the ransomware will download and install itself on your computer. Once installed, CryptoLockerEU Ransomware will encrypt your files using a strong encryption algorithm. The ransomware will then display a ransom note, demanding that you pay a fee to unlock your files.

How much is the ransom?

The ransom demanded by CryptoLockerEU Ransomware is usually 1 Bitcoin, which is currently worth about $4,000. However, the amount may vary depending on the type of files that have been encrypted. For example, if you have important business files that are encrypted, the ransomware may demand a higher ransom.

Also, CryptoLockerEU Ransomware will give you a deadline to pay the ransom, and if you don’t pay within that time frame, the price will increase.

If you do decide to pay the ransom, there is no guarantee that your files will be unlocked. There have been reports of people who have paid the ransom but still haven’t had their files unlocked. Additionally, by paying the ransom, you are supporting the criminals who created this ransomware and encouraging them to create more malware.

What encryption algorithm does CryptoLockerEU use?

CryptoLockerEU Ransomware uses the RSA-2048 encryption algorithm to encrypt your files. This is a strong encryption algorithm that is used by government agencies and businesses to protect their data.

History

CryptoLockerEU Ransomware was first discovered in August 2018. However, we believe that someone created this ransomware in June 2018.

The biggest CryptoLockerEU attack was in September 2018 when the ransomware infected over 500,000 computers in Russia. The ransomware also spread to other countries, including the United States, Australia, and Italy.
