FabSysCrypto Ransomware – a Locky virus clone

FabSysCrypto Ransomware belongs to the infamous group of malware based on Hidden Tear Project which was created as an open-source project for educational reasons. However, today anyone with above average computer and coding knowledge might just become a beginner cybercriminal.

FabSysCrypto Ransomware mimics the behavior of another infamous malware known as Locky Ransomware. Their ransom notes are almost carbon copies of each other. FabSysCrypto utilizes the RSA-2048 cipher and AES-128 as well to make valuable files on your computer unreadable by the OS.

In this particular case, all infected files get a new extension of «.locked» added to them. This malware targets files with the most popular extensions. Expect to see files with these extensions to be corrupted once FabSysCrypto Ransomware finishes encryption: .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .asp, .aspx, .html, .xml, .psd., csv, .sql, .mdb, .php, .txt, .doc, .odt, .jpg, .png.

However, we are glad to say that FabSysCrypto Ransomware is a less sophisticated program and there is a chance for decrypting corrupted files without paying a ransom. Try to look third-party recovery tools that might delete the abnormal .locked extension. Never succumb to the hacker’s promises to restore the data because you will end up losing your money and funding their newest malicious applications. Instead use special anti-malware programs for FabSysCrypto Ransomware removal – Plumbytes or SpyHunter, for instance.

At least it is safe to say that scammers did not invent new infection techniques and prefer common strategies like malware spam. Emails are still one of the most popular methods of distributing malicious software like this one. Suspicious attachments, unknown links, executable files, etc. in emails should not be opened. It is always a risk to get infected in one click.

If your PC is already compromised, then it is time to cure the FabSysCrypto Ransomware. There are two ways to get rid of the malware. You can do it manually if you know where the original malicious file is hidden. But it might take time. Plus, if you don’t know where to look you can accidentally delete wrong files. To avoid this, we recommend using one of the aforementioned anti-malware programs. This way you will be sure that other possible threats are also eliminated along with the FabSysCrypto.
