TeslaCrypt is very dangerous encrypting virus and ransomware. It uses AES encryption to encrypt sensitive user files (documents, photos, music, video). After this it asks for a ransom to decrypt those files. One of the features of TeslaCrypt ransomware is that it also affects gaming files of most popular games
Zepto Ransomware is new file-encrypting ransomware from Locky family. It uses RSA-2048 encryption algorithm and appends .zepto extensions to encrypted files and modifies file names with set of numbers and letters. First part of this set is your actually personal ID that is needed to pay the ransom and get decryptor. Ransom amount is 0.6 BitCoins (~$365). Zepto creates _HELP_instructions.html file with instructions to make the payment.

UltraCrypter is new version of ransomware that belong to the family of CryptXXX. It distributes via Angler Exploit Kit.

UltraCrypter adds .cryp1 extensions to all affected files. The ransom is 1.2 Bitcoins ($567.6). Malefactors give 96 hours to pay this amount, otherwise it will double to 2.4 Bitcoins.
CTB-Locker is very wide-spread and dangerous ransomware virus. It uses RSA-2048 encryption to encrypt various types of files stored on users computers (documents, images, photos, music, videos). Then CTB-Locker demands the ransom of $120 – $300 and shows message on your desktop: “Your personal files are encrypted by CTB-Locker”. Ransomware also creates text file with instructions DecryptAllFiles.txt in every affected folder. The virus itself is rather simple to remove, however we recommend you to use removal tool.
