Zeropadypt is a ransomware that runs on Microsoft Windows. The activity of zeropadypt came at the beginning of April 2019.



It can be spread by hacking through an unprotected RDP configuration, using email spam and malicious attachments, fraudulent downloads, botnets, exploits, web injections, fake updates, repackaged and infected installers.


Zeropadypt does not encrypt anything, but  fills the contents of the files with zeros, and then requires that an extortionist write an email to pay a ransom to return the files.

It then opens a ransom note named "READ-Me-Now" which says:

Your the All Files the Encrypted
