Yet another crypto virus

We'd like you to be aware of a new ransomware strain dubbed CRYPVAULT that is spreading rapidly as an email attachment.

In an attempt to bypass all endpoint protection, the user is social engineered to open an attached Javascript file. The phishing attack does not have an executable. Instead, the malware uses the command box to run a batch file that encrypts the files.

CRYPVAULT encrypts the files and then makes them appear to the end-user as if they were quarantined. The act of disguising the users' encrypted files as quarantined files possibly aims to raise urgency for users to take action on their files.

Please train your employees not to fall for these types of social engineering. They must always be vigilant for suspicious emails. Call us immediately if you notice anthing suspicious.
