This ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts your files and then demands a ransom be paid to unlock them. It uses a strong encryption algorithm, which makes it very difficult to decrypt your files without the proper decryption key.


Razy was first discovered by malware researcher Michael Gillespie on May 8th, 2016. At that time, it was not widely distributed and there were only a few known samples. Razy is believed to be a variant of Cryptolocker Ransomware.

How does Razy infect your computer?

Razy is typically spread through email attachments and malicious websites.

Once it has infected your computer, it will scan your hard drive for specific file types to encrypt. It will then display a ransom note, which will instruct you on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your files.

How do I understand if my computer is infected?

If you see some of the following symptoms, your computer is likely infected with Razy Ransomware:

– Your files have been encrypted and have a .razy extension.

– You see a ransom note named README.txt or DECRYPT_INSTRUCTIONS.html.

– Your computer’s background has been changed to solid color with the Razy Ransomware logo.


There are several things you can do to protect yourself from Razy and other types of ransomware:

  • Keep your operating system and other software up to date with the latest security patches.
  • Use a reputable antivirus program and keep it up to date.
  • Do not open email attachments from unknown senders.
  • Do not click on links in emails from senders that you do not know.
  • Use caution when downloading files from the internet. Make sure you trust the source before you download anything.
  • Do not enable macros in Microsoft Office documents unless you trust the source. Ransomware uses macros to infect your computer.

Ransom amount and payment methods

Razy Ransomware will typically demand a ransom of 2 Bitcoins, but the amount can vary depending on the individual case. Ransom payments are typically made through Bitcoin, but some variants have also been known to accept other forms of payment, such as Paypal or credit cards.

What should I do?

If you are infected with Razy Ransomware, we recommend that you do the following:

  • Do not pay the ransom. There is no guarantee that you will get your files back even if you do pay.
  • Disconnect from the internet immediately to prevent the Razy Ransomware from encrypting any more files.
  • Use a reliable anti-malware program to scan your computer and remove it.
  • If you have a backup of your files, you can restore them from that.
