    The latest variant of CryptXXX Ransomware has generated $60,478 in ransom payments since June 4, based on current exchange rates. The newest release also addresses previously exploited code flaws, which helps the victim avoid payment and restore their files by using free decryption tools.

    Researchers from SentinelOne have been tracking a CryptXXX campaign this month, which leverages the latest build from the Ransomware family.
