Psychopath is a ransomware that will take over your computer functionality and lock your files until you pay a “ransom”, in the form of Bitcoin cryptocurrency, in order to get access back. What it does is modify the file names with a unique string ID assigned to the victim. It then appends – [email@example.com].[4-character string file extension] to each file. The ransom note from the Read_Me!_.txt file reads:
Your Data Locked.

This type of infection can be downloaded on your computer for many reasons such as malicious websites, codecs, or downloads. Be sure to remove it immediately.
