NCrypt is a virus that encrypts your files and demands a ransom for their decryption.


NCrypt Ransomware was first discovered in March 2016. This virus is a variant of Locky Ransomware. NCrypt is written in the C++ programming language.

How does NCrypt Ransomware infect your computer?

Attackers spread NCrypt Ransomware through email attachments and malicious websites. The email attachments usually come in the form of a ZIP or RAR file. These files will contain a JavaScript file that will download and install NCrypt Ransomware on your computer. The malicious websites usually contain exploit kits that can exploit vulnerabilities on your computer to install NCrypt Ransomware.

Once your computer is infected, NCrypt will scan your hard drive for files to encrypt. It then adds the “.ncrypt” extension to these files and makes them unreadable. NCrypt will also create a text file named “README.txt” in each folder that contains encrypted files. This text file contains instructions on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your files.

What types of files does NCrypt Ransomware encrypt?

NCrypt will encrypt most types of files on your computer, including documents, pictures, music, and videos. It will also encrypt files with the following extensions: .txt, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, .pdf, .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .bmp, .3gp, and .mp3.

How much is the ransom?

The NCrypt Ransomware demands a ransom of 0.5 Bitcoin, which is approximately USD 315. NCrypt will give you a 72 hour deadline to pay the ransom. If you do not pay the ransom within this time frame, NCrypt will delete your private key and you will not be able to decrypt your files.


There are some steps that you can take to protect yourself from NCrypt Ransomware:

-Install and run an antivirus program.

-Do not open email attachments from unknown senders.

-Be cautious when visiting websites. Do not click on any pop-ups or ads.

-Back up your files regularly. This way, if you do get infected, you will not lose your data.

What should you do?

If you have already been infected with NCrypt Ransomware, do not pay the ransom. There is no guarantee that your files will be decrypted even if you do pay.  Additionally, by paying the NCrypt Ransomware, you would be supporting the criminals responsible for this malware.

Public decryption tool

There is no NCrypt Ransomware decryption tool available at this time. Even if you find a tool, we do not recommend using it, as it may contain malware.

We do not recommend doing it if you do not know what you are doing.
