PyCL Ransomware is identified as a file encoder infection that is capable to make system in-accessible. It is mainly a cross platform threat to data on corporate network, servers network and personal computers. SADStory Ransomware and CryPy Ransomware are variant of this nasty threat. PyCL Ransomware uses Python script to handle all its encryption procedure. Once installed, it will first search for the most valuable file and then encrypt it using its malicious trick.

It stores all the log keys in %AppData\Roaming\How_Decrypt_My_Files which are used to encipher your valuable files.

1. Pay amount BTC (about of USD) to address:
2. Transaction will take about 15-30 minutes to confirm.
Decryption will start automatically. Do not: power off computer, run antivirus program, disable internet connection. Failures during key recovery and file decryption may lead to accidental damage on files.
YOUR FILES WILL BE LOST WITHOUT PAYMENT THROUGH: # Days # Hours # Minutes # Seconds’
This notorious threat is designed to add custom marker to the names of files which is modified. PyCL Ransomware adds ‘.crypted’ suffix which is also used by other threats such as Nemucod Ransomware.

Most often, PyCL Ransomware come along with junk mails and bundled freewares which is downloaded from non authorized sites. Infact, social sites, unsafe external media, surfing malicious websites are other common carriers of this malwares. You can remove it manually by following steps-

Step 2- Press ‘Alt + Ctrl + Del’ altogether to open Windows Task Manager. Search all the infectious processes running over their and then click to ‘End Task’ button.
Step 3- Hit ‘Win + R’ to open Run command box and then Type ‘regedit’ to open Windows Registry Editor. Search and Delete all the corrupt Registries added by this malware.
Step 4- Click Start button and then Hit Control Panel to open ‘All Programs’. Search for all the infectious programs and then Uninstall it.
Note: These steps are designed mainly for experts. Small mistake while the process may takes you to system damage or severe data loss.
