Is file-encrypting malware really that harmful

AVCrypt ransomware may be the file-encoding malware responsible for your file encoding. Fake downloads and spam emails are the most likely way you acquired the threat. File-encrypting malware will lock your files as soon as it infects your OS and ask for money, which is why we consider it to be a highly harmful contamination.
