Ransomware Snake Game - Kryptonite

Ransomware Snake Game - Kryptonite

Kryptonite is a ransomware on Microsoft Windows. This ransomware uses the RSA-2048 encryption method. 


When run, this ransomware has the appearance of a game of "Snake". After the game is played, the ransomware begins to encrypt the files. In doing so, it changes the wallpaper and leaves a ransom note, demanding $500. Strangely, the program states that the user must run getMyId.exe in order to get an ID, and then go to their website. However, getMyId.exe cannot be found anywhere on the computer.
