About .crypt File

Any files that are encrypted by CryptXXX Ransomware will change to .crypt file extension. If you suddenly find personal documents and a vast majority of files convert to .crypt on your computer, be extremely alert,because the computer has been somehow attacked and your person files are encrypted.
