How Does DecrptOr Ransomware Infiltrate the System?

An infection with the DecrptOr ransomware can be triggered by falling victim to one of the distribution strategies devised by the virus operators.

One such way is the interaction with infected email messages. Most of them use social engineering tricks that confuse the targets into opening up the file attachments or visiting malicious links that lead to a DecrptOr ransomware infecton. This is done by using template messages that imiitate well-known institutions or companies.

Payload agents can also be infected documents or software installers. When the users interact with them built-in scripts are triggered that cause the DecrptOr virus infection. They are usually found on hacker-controlled download sites or P2P networks.

Browser hijackers and direct hacker attacks are other options that are used by the hackers to deliver the DecrptOr ransomware.

Infection Flow of DecrptOr Ransomware

The DecrptOr ransomware is a newly discovered computer virus that appears to be in an early stage of development. The initial security analysis made by the researchers indicate that it does not contain any code from the famous malware families, making it an original development of its creators. At the moment it is not known who is responsible for its development, whether it is an individual or a criminal collective.

Only an encryption engine is bundled in the captured DecrptOr ransomware malware samples. It seeks to processs system and user data based on a predefined list of target file type extensions. The current iteration of the DecrptOr ransomware does not seem to encrypt the files or process them in any way. However it is very likely that future versions may use complex ciphers and a ransom extension to mark the data.

When this process is complete a lockscreen is initiated. It is drawn in an application frame and may prohibit the users from interacting with their computers until the virus is completely eliminated. It reads the DecrptOr virus message:
