Hi. I just want to ask if anyone here can identify a ransomware that adds .cring file extension? I am searching the internet for this kind of virus but couldn’t find any discussion. As of now, this Cring ransomware is only encrypting .doc and .txt files. I was not able to identify it because there is no ransom note, ID, or anything that I can upload to ID-Ransomware.
If anyone here have the same issue as mine, please let me know if you were able to solve or recover the files.
Thank you very much.December 7, 2020 at 12:58 am #2289MFixerGuest

Anyone have solution for this. I need to decrypt my files that has Cring extensions. They said that this Cring ransomware is a Crypt3r virus. It drops the following message on my computer:

After receiving the corresponding fee, we will immediately send the decryption program and KEY.
