PizzaCrypts

PizzaCrypts targets Windows OS and is distributed via the Neutrino Exploit Kit. Once executed, this variant encrypts victims’ files and appends them with the extension id-[victim’s ID}_maestro@pizzacrypts.info. A ransom note labeled “Pizzacrypts Info.txt” is then dropped into every folder that contains encrypted files. The ransom payment demand for PizzaCrypts is currently unknown.
