CryptoDefense is a hacking tool reported at the end of winter 2014. The solution is a trojan users tend to allow inside their machines as they are requested to upload some updates such as, for instance, fresh codec for watching streaming video. The claim is a misleading statement as instead of the expected upgrading users face the problem of access blocked to nearly all items on their PCs.

Usually, any image, text and media files undergo the modification that renders the item inaccessible. In order to regain the access a victims is prompted to pay a fee amounted to 1 or 2 bitcoins (online Internet currency, value of one bitcoin currently ranges within USD 500 to 600). Should users dare lingering, the demanded amount doubles. The ultimate outcome as announced by the black hat hackers is that the key for decoding the files affected is going to be destroyed in a month, unless the action is taken in line with their instructions. The trojan also deletes all Shadowed Volume Copies thus further aggravating affected items recovery. Once installed on a target PC, the infection starts decryption of files with sophisticated encoding technology generating a public key. To undo the decryption, a private key is to be obtained through the server indicated by the malware. The server is located at Tor network that complicates investigation of the hack by relevant authorities and volunteering/private IT experts. The malware is going to make a screenshot of your active Windows screen so that you will see that as you visit the payment website. Each folder containing the files processed by the rogue would comprise HTML and txt file featuring instructions on opening and handling the website for purchasing private key. Removal of CryptoDefense or its instruction files do not facilitate the encoding. The free guide below will show how to get rid of CryptoDefense constituents.
