Though it sounds a bit odd but in a sense, its purpose is brilliant being that of donation for charity.
CryptMix is what’s known as “ransomware,” an infection that encodes the casualties’ records and requests a payment consequently to unlock them, is utilizing a novel strategy to attempt and affect its casualties to pay up but it is promising that the cash raised will go to philanthropy.
CryptMix is a rebel programming that makes it difficult to get to your information unless you hack up a payment. It was initially highlighted by a blogpost by security organization called Heimdal Security.
Regarding the purpose, the broken-English-message casualties are welcomed with saying “Your money will be spent for the children charity, so that is mean that You will get a participation in this process too. Many children will receive presents and medical help!”
It also says that “And We trust that you are kind and honest person! Thank You very much! We wish You all the best! Your name will be in the main donors list and will stay in the charity history!”
Though it even endeavors to cheer up the remorseful casualty, asserting the cash blackmailed is for a decent purpose, but the icing on the cake is the message is signed off with “Best regards, Charity Team.”
CryptMix requests 5 bitcoin — around $2,300, or £1,600 — with the payoff multiplying if the casualty doesn’t pay up inside 24 hours of contamination.
The main concern is that it is mysterious whether the money will really go to “the children charity,” may be it is a kind of deception as the maximum number of hackers’ purposes are negative as seen everywhere. But above all if the purpose it true, then it must bring a smile and a hope for a better living for deprived children in many parts of the world.
