I'm simply posting this thread as a reminder or "note" for those who gets infected by any Cryptowares other than CryptoLocker and who tries to use the website DecryptCryptolocker.com
by FireEye and Fox IT to decrypt their encrypted files. You cannot
decrypt files from any other Cryptowares other than CryptoLocker on this website. The online service "Decrypt CryptoLocker", by FireEye and Fox IT can only be used to decrypt files that were encrypted by the original Cryptoware, CryptoLocker. This is possible because during the Operation Tovar that was used to shut down the GameOver ZeuS botnet, which was used to distribute CryptoLocker, they seized servers where the private keys used for encryption by CryptoLocker were uploaded to. After that, they set up the DecryptCryptolocker.com website that allows you to upload a CryptoLocker encrypted file and it'll test it against the 50,000 private keys they retrieved from the server to see if one matches your encryption private key If it does, they'll send you a decrypter executable along with your private key. Therefore, files encrypted by any other Cryptoware other than CryptoLocker cannot
be decrypted via this service.
The reason I'm posting this thread is because I've seen quite a few threads and replies in the Cryptoware Support threads lately of people that tried to use that website to decrypt their files that were encrypted by CryptoDefense, CryptoWall, TorrentLocker, etc. and complaining that it wasn't working or failed.
I know this thread might be ignored by newcomers, but for those of you who took the time to read it, at least you'll know what this is all about and why DecryptCryptolocker.com cannot be used to decrypt non-CryptoLocker encrypted files.
Have a good day
