How to build Ransomware?  I will show you how to build a ransomware using Hidden-Cry
Hidden-Cry is a script to generate a Windows Encrypter/Decrypter using AES encryption with a random 256-bit key. AES- Adanced Encryption Standard, it uses a symmetric-key algorithm, means the same key is used for encrypting and decrypting the data.  Hidden-Cry encrypts all personal files from Home directory (,txt, .doc, .xls, .mp3, .mp4, .pdf, .png and etc.)  It's Fully Undetectable (FUD) by Antiviruses. Works with Windows 10(requires Powershell 5)
NOTE- Don't Upload it on Virustotal, because they share results. 
Installing it on Kali Linux. >
$git clone https://github.com/thelinuxchoice/hidden-cry

$ cd hidden-cry
$ sudo apt-get update & apt-get install mingw-w64 -y
$ sudo chmod +x hidden-cry
$ sudo ./hidden-cry
And your done!! You have successfully installed it.
