zCrypt is a dangerous computer virus that belongs to the class of ransomware. It encrypts important users’ files and then demands a ransom for the decryption key. zCrypt uses strong encryption algorithms, which makes it almost impossible to decrypt the encrypted files without the decryption key. Attackers spread this virus using various methods, including spam emails, fake software updates, and infected websites. It encrypts important files such as images, videos, documents, etc., and appends the “.zcrypt” extension to them. The malware displays a ransom note after encrypting the files, which contains instructions on how to pay the ransom and decrypt the encrypted files.

The price of the ransom is usually between $100 and $500, it can be paid in various cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Monero, Ethereum, etc. The ransom note warns the victim that if they don’t pay the ransom within a certain time frame, the price will double.



zCrypt was first spotted in the wild in May 2019. We believe it to be a successor of CryptON Ransomware, which was active in early 2019. zCrypt is written in the Go programming language and uses the AES-256 encryption algorithm to encrypt files.


The biggest zCrypt campaign was launched in June 2019 and targeted users in the United States. This campaign used email phishing messages that pretended to be from the United States Postal Service (USPS). The emails contained a ZIP attachment that, when opened, downloaded and executed this virus on the victim’s computer.

In July 2019, it was used in a targeted attack against an unnamed US-based accounting firm. The attackers gained access to the victim’s network by sending phishing emails that contained a malicious link. Once the attackers had access to the victim’s network, they used the ransomware to encrypt important files and demand a ransom from the victim.

So, you should be very careful if you do not want to become a victim of zCrypt Ransomware.


The best way to protect your computer from this and other ransomware viruses is to use a reputable anti-malware program and keep it up-to-date. You should also regularly back up your important files to an external hard drive or cloud storage. This way, if you ever get infected with zCrypt or any other virus, you can restore your files from the backup.


If you are a victim of zCrypt, we recommend that you do not pay the ransom. There is no guarantee that you will get the decryption key even if you pay the ransom. In some cases, victims who have paid the ransom didn’t receive the decryption key or received a key that didn’t work.


That’s why zCrypt Ransomware is a serious threat and should be removed as soon as it’s detected. You should remove the virus using a reputable anti-malware program.
