PadCrypt Ransomware

Ransomware with several interesting features described for Graham Cluley’s blog by David Bisson: New ransomware comes with Live Chat feature, somewhat useless uninstaller. The article draws on information published by Lawrence Abrams for Bleeping Computer: PadCrypt: The first ransomware with Live Support Chat and an Uninstaller.

The point about the uninstaller is that it removes all the files associated with the infection, but doesn’t reverse the encryption.
