CryptoLocker is a ransomware trojan which targeted computers running Microsoft Windows,[1] believed
to have first been posted to the Internet on 5 September 2013.[2] CryptoLocker propagated via
infected email attachments, and via an existing botnet; when activated, the malware encrypts
certain types of files stored on local and mounted network drives using RSA public-key
cryptography, with the private key stored only on the malware's control servers. The malware then
displays a message which offers to decrypt the data if a payment (through either bitcoin or a prepaid cash voucher) is made by a stated deadline, and threatened to delete the private key if the
deadline passes. If the deadline is not met, the malware offered to decrypt data via an online
service provided by the malware's operators, for a significantly higher price in bitcoin.
