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.
Locky is ransomware virus that encrypts you files using the RSA-2048 and AES-1024 algorithms and demands 0.5 BTC (bitcoins) (equivalent to $207) for receiving “Locky Decrypter” to allow user decrypt his documents and images. This is very dangerous blackmailing virus and there are currently only few ways to decrypt your files.
