A new ransomware that pretends to be from a fake organization called the Central Security Treatment Organization has been discovered by security researcher MalwareHunterTeam.  When the Central Security Treatment Organization, or Cry, Ransomware infects a computer it will encrypt a victim's files and then append the .cry extension to encrypted files. It will then demand approximately 1.1 bitcoins, or $625 USD, in order to get the decryption key.

The ransomware will create ransom notes named !Recovery_[random_chars].html and !Recovery_[random_chars].txt on the victim's desktop.
