How to remove KRIPTOVOR (Virus Removal Guide)


The KRIPTOVOR virus is dangerous malware and and an encryption virus found in the ransomware category of computer severe threats. The KRIPTOVOR virus has been spreading through Europe and the United States. The KRIPTOVOR virus runs and generates a unique public RSA key and a private RSA key. It encrypts computer files that match the .xls, .doc, .pdf, .rtf, .psd, .dwg, .cdr, .cd, .mdb, .1cd, .dbf, .sqlite, .jpg, and .zip file extensions, holds the encrypted files hostage, and demands a ransom to restore or decrypt the victim’s computer files that it encrypts.


The KRIPTOVOR virus takes control of an infected computer system, restricts access, and encrypts most personal files existing on the infected computer. It limits access to the infected computer system and will leave a message on the infected computer’s desktop, open a webpage, or leave a text file called KRIPTOVOR.txt that contains a message demanding that the computer owner pay a fraudulent ransom or purchase KRIPTOVOR decryption software using Bitcoins or another online credit system.

The alert message displayed by KRIPTOVOR ransomware might say something similar to “Your files have been safely encrypted on this PC: photos, videos, documents, etc. Click “Show encrypted files” Button to view a complete list of encrypted files and you can personally verify this.” The message will be delivered in a new window, webpage, or text file found on Windows desktop.

Victims of the KRIPTOVOR virus who pay the fine and follow the instructions on the message might be able to restore their personal files and remove the ransomware, but it is not suggested to do so. Instead, malware analysts suggest to first use various procedures and third-party computer security software to remove the KRIPTOVOR virus and similar ransomware. Paying the ransom may actually cause further issues for some computer users.
