VCrypt - Ransomware

The ransomware uses the 7zip command-line application to create a password protected archive of files and directories and then deletes the original data. The malware appends ".vxcrypt" to the archive and opens a ransom note named help.html with Internet Explorer. VCrypt focuses on infecting French victims and directs the user to a webpage for instructions on how to obtain the password for the locked files.
