What is an .CRYPZ file?
.CRYPZ is CryptXXX ransomware affected data
The crypz file extension is related to the encrypted files produced by one of the latest variant of ransomware labeled as CryptXXX.
It encrypts users files and demands ransom to be paid in bitcoins.
Note: Some later variants of CryptXXX used randomized extension consisting of 5 hexadecimal characters instead the original crypz. However, the latest version of this ransomware does not use special extension at all and also misleads users by its new name "Microsoft Decryptor".
On top of that, latest versions of CryptXXX seems to also scramble the file name and randomize it.
