Crysis? What Crysis?

Ondrej Kubovič  for ESET: Beyond TeslaCrypt: Crysis family lays claim to parts of its territory. The ransomware that ESET calls Win32/Filecoder.Crysis encrypts files on fixed, removable and network drives.

It uses strong encryption algorithms and a scheme that makes it difficult to crack in reasonable time.

It encrypts everything except system files and its own bits and pieces, and charges between 400 and 900 euros. However, ESET users may be able to recover files encrypted by older versions with the help of ESET technical support.
