The Karmen Ransomware is another malicious infection, which belongs to the hidden tear malware family. Just like the other members, it is based on the source code of open source Ransomware infection which was designed for training purposes. But, although it was created on the basis of computer infection, their primary purpose of never which was harming innocent users, this does not mean that she is too mild. 2-delete-spyware.com experts have recently carried out an investigation, to bring the whole truth to light about. It becomes quickly clear that the Karmen of Ransomware belongs to those infections, attempting to get any cost the user money. Undoubtedly, it encrypts the personal data, which are stored on the hard disk of the computer, to persuade users to pay a ransom.

WMA. mp3, .mkv, .mov, .flv and .ogg). The Karmen of Ransomware has already served her purpose in any case when all files have the file name extension .grt, where it is impossible to access on one of them.
