How to Remove Cryptobot Virus and Decrypt Files

Posted by Britt Duncan - May 19, 2015

Like CTB Locker virus, Cryptobot is a risky ransomware which can encrypt files, such as pictures and words. This ransom virus is created by cyber criminals to cheat PC users’ money. However, Cryptobot asks for more money than other ransomware. The ransomware asks 500 USD via Paysafecard, MoneyPak, or Ukash to decrypt encrypted files. First of all, the ransomware will block your important files when it gets into your system. Then it will ask you to pay 500 USD to unlock your files. Moreover, some of your files will be renamed in the name of the ransom virus, which will cause more difficulties to decrypt your files. Besides from collecting money, Cryptobot can cause many other threats to your system.
