What is Crypton Ransomware?

Crypton is a type of malicious software that encrypts your files and demands a ransom to decrypt them.

How does Crypton spread?

Attackers spread this ransomware through spam emails, fake downloads, and infected websites.

How does Crypton Ransomware work?

Once Crypton Ransomware encrypts your files, it will append the “.crypton” extension to them. For example, “photo.jpg” would become “photo.jpg.crypton”. Crypton Ransomware will also create a text file named “DECRYPT-INSTRUCTIONS.txt” that contains information on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your files.

Crypton Ransomware is a serious threat to your computer and should be removed as soon as possible.

What encryption algorithm does Crypton Ransomware use?

Crypton Ransomware uses the RSA-2048 encryption algorithm.

What types of files does Crypton Ransomware encrypt?

Crypton Ransomware will encrypt most types of files, including images, videos, documents, and more.

How to protect yourself from Crypton Ransomware?

Be cautious of email attachments and links, even if they come from someone you know. Do not download or open attachments unless you are expecting them. Be especially wary of ZIP files masquerading as PDFs, images, or other common file types.

Do not click on links in email messages unless you are sure they are safe. You can hover over a link to see where it will take you before clicking on it. Do not enter any personal information on websites unless you are sure the website is legitimate.

Keep your operating system and software up to date with the latest security patches. This will help prevent vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malware.

Enable popup blockers and install ad-blocking software to reduce the risk of accidentally clicking on malicious ads.

Back up your important files regularly. This way, if you do become a victim of ransomware, you will not lose your data.

How much is the Crypton Ransomware ransom?

Crypton Ransomware demands a ransom of $500 in Bitcoins. The ransom must be paid within 72 hours, or the price will increase to $1000.


Crypton was first discovered in June 2017.

The biggest Crypton ransomware attack happened in July 2017 when Crypton Ransomware encrypted the files of a South Korean web hosting company called Nayana. Nayana ended up paying $1 million in ransom to decrypt their data.
