By GoldSparrow in Ransomware

The Cyspt Ransomware is an encryption ransomware Trojan that was first observed on January 25, 2019. The Cyspt Ransomware seems to be a variant of the AresCrypt Ransomware, first observed in July 2018. The Cyspt Ransomware behaves like most encryption ransomware Trojans, taking the victims' files hostage and then demanding a ransom payment.

The Cyspt Ransomware uses the AES encryption to make the victim's files inaccessible. The Cyspt Ransomware targets the user-generated files, such as media files, configuration files and databases. The files that can become compromised in the event of a Cyspt Ransomware infection include:

After the Cyspt Ransomware encrypts the victim's files, the Cyspt Ransomware delivers a program window titled 'Cyspt has locked your PC!!!!' The Cyspt Ransomware marks the files it encrypts in its attack with the file extension '.OOFNIK,' which is added to each affected file's name. The following is the full text of the Cyspt Ransomware ransom note:
