What is Galacti-Crypter Ransomware
Galacti-Crypter ransomware is a cryptovirus that extorts money from users. Galacti-Crypter ransomware encrypts data using the RSA-2048 algorithm, which of course makes these files unusable. The type of these files was not chosen by chance, because it encrypts photos, audio, video and everything that is important to the user. Despite the fact that Galacti-Crypter ransomware is aimed at English-speaking users, it still spread all over the world.
A genealogical relationship with any cryptovirus family has not been established. Galacti-Crypter ransomware became active at the end of September 2019 and so far has gained tremendous momentum. Unlike other cryptoviruses, this does not change the file extension but inserts the ENCx45cR prefix in their names. For example, the file 0101document.doc becomes ENCx45cR0101document.doc. Just renaming files does not help. Moreover, cryptovirus deletes shadow copies of files and system restore points. Among other things, Galacti-Crypter ransomware creates the lock screen that contains information about encryption and ransom methods:
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT RENAME ANY FILES THAT WERE ENCRYPTED! THIS WILL LEAD TO THAT FILE BEING RE-ENCRYPTED AND THEN WILL BE LOST FOREVER!
Your important files on this computer were encrypted using a public RSA-2048 key, generated for this computer (photos, videos, documents, ect… Click the View Secured Files button to view all of your encrypted files).
Getting rid of this tool will NOT help. You will need this tool to DECRYPT and get access to your files again.
Your private decryption key has been created and stored on a secure and anonymous server. This key will allow you to decrypt all your files. This key is somewhere in the internet, and if payment is not made in the required time, it will be erased off the server permanently, and ALL your files will be permanently lost.
To obtain your private key for this computer, you will need to pay 150.00 USD / 150.00 EUR BitCoin. This is equal to 0.2 Bitcoin that must be paid to decrypt and regain access to all your files.
ANY attempts to remove, tamper or damage this software WILL lead to immediate termination of the private key and ALL your files will be permanently LOST.
Your time remaining is indicated on the left.

In a note, attackers demand a ransom of 0.2 bitcoin, which at this rate is approximately $ 150. Of course, someone can say that this is a very small amount, but in reality, you can spend money nowhere. We highly Galacti-Cryptermmend you to use our Galacti-Cryptermmendations to delete ENCx45cR and decrypt ENCx45cR files.
