What is CRYBrazil Ransomware
CRYBrazil Ransomware is an extortionist, aimed primarily at Portuguese-speaking users, in particular, the Brazilians, but this does not mean that this does not apply to users of other countries. This virus encrypts data on the user’s computer with the most complex algorithms, changing their extension to .HACKED or .CRYBRAZIL. The difficulty lies in the fact that the encryptor selects a unique algorithm each time, which excludes the possibility of independent decryption. After that, the user cannot open these files, restore it, or return to the computer state point created earlier, because CRYBrazil Ransomware deletes all recovery points.
