CryptXXX first marked in mid-April and which was distinguished by security firm Proofpoint. The ransomware performed such as - any other crypto-ransomware on the present market and its meaning that it would affect the targets through malvertising which is encrypt their file as well as the request for a ransom.
Even users had full access to their computers apart from the encrypted files. And they could still apply the "same computer" to go online and purchase the Bitcoin, and also pay the ransom.
Whereas the researchers found the CryptXXX 2.0.
Only after a week the ransomware was first pointed out that the things were obtained a positive turn for CryptXXX victims and it could be done when Kaspersky launched an update to their RannohDecryptor which incorporated the capability to analyze as well as crack the encryption of CryptXXX.
This kind of modification permitted to the CryptXXX victims to download the decrypter of Kaspersky as well as it can be run in spite of going online as well as paying the ransom.
Approximately after two weeks the Kaspersky launched its free decrypter which is known as Proofpoint is now covering on the appearance of the version 2 of CryptXXX that is to be more exactly of 2.006 that consist of the updates which defeat the decrypter.
But that is not all where the users affected with CryptXXX 2 and it would not be even capable of going online any longer due to the authors of CryptXXX have resolute to lock the whole screen of user altogether such as - in the good old' days of screen-locking ransomware.

As for its sharing still the Proofpoint says that the attackers following it have a preference for the malvertising movement and the malicious ads on justifiable websites that were transmitted users to pages hosting the Angler develop the kit which transports the ransomware straightforwardly or through a mediator malware that is known as Bedep.
The Proofpoint team described on its site that "CryptXXX is being actively maintained: we have seen it evolve multiple times since our initial discovery, but the changes did not appear significant enough to be mentioned. As expected, the number of actors spreading it has increased, making it one of the most commonly seen ransomware families. Globally, we have observed several primary threat actors transitioning from Teslacrypt/Locky to CryptXXX/Cerber in the drive by the landscape in recent weeks."
