Hi COSMOTRONICS :)

Depending on which Cryptoware you were infected with, there's a chance that you might be able to recover your files. Also, the DecryptCryptolocker website wouldn't have helped you since it was made for the original CryptoLocker infected that was shutdown during Summer 2013, and isn't spread anymore. Do you have any ransom notes on your system? If so, can you give us the name of the ransom files (.txt, .png, .bmp, .html, etc.) and copy/paste their content here (you can remove the ids if you want)?

 

Hello Aura,

 

i´m effected with cryptolocker. Can you held me when i send you an effected file or other information?

Hi XBrainBug :)

Are you infected with the original CryptoLocker (which was disrupted in 2013), or the new Crypt0L0cker? What's the name of your ransom notes? Is there any extension appended to your encrypted files?

...i´m effected with cryptolocker. Can you held me when i send you an effected file or other information?

The original Cryptolocker infection does not exist anymore and hasn't for over a year. Any references to CryptoLocker and retrieving keys for it will not work anymore. There are several copycat and fake ransomware variants which use the CryptoLocker name but those infections are not the same.

Are there any file extensions appended to your files...such as .ecc, .ezz, .exx, .zzz, .xyz, .aaa, .abc, .ccc, .CTBL, .CTB2, .XTBL, .encrypted, .vault, .HA3, .toxcrypt or 6-7 length extension consisting of random characters?

Did you find any ransom note? These infections are created to alert victims that their data has been encrypted and demand a ransom payment. Check your documents folder for an image the malware typically uses for the background note. Check the C:\ProgramData (or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data) for a random named .html, .txt, .png, .bmp, .url file.

These are some examples.
HELP_DECRYPT.TXT, HELP_DECRYPT.HTML, HELP_DECRYPT.URL, HELP_DECRYPT.PNG
HELP_TO_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES.bmp, HELP_TO_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES.txt, HELP_RESTORE_FILES.txt
HELP_TO_SAVE_FILES.txt, HELP_TO_SAVE_FILES.bmp, RECOVERY_KEY.txt, DecryptAllFiles.txt
DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.TXT, DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.HTML, DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.URL
HOW_TO_DECRYPT_FILES.txt, How_To_Recover_Files.txt, About_Files, encryptor_raas_readme_liesmich.txt
DecryptAllFiles_<user name>.txt, DecryptAllFiles_******.txt file (where * is 6-7 random characters)
RECOVERY_FILES.html, RECOVERY_FILES.txt, Recovery_File_*****.html, Recovery_File_*****.txt
restore_files_*****.html, restore_files_*****.txt, HOWTO_RESTORE_FILES*****.txt (where ***** are random characters)

Once you have identified which particular ransomware you are dealing with, I can direct you to the appropriate discussion topic for further assistance.

Another option is to download and run IDTool created by Nathan Scott (DecrypterFixer), a BleepingComuter Security Colleague. IDTool is a small utility that scans certain files, folders, registry keys and signatures of a system for evidence (known flags) of various crypto malware which helps identify what kind of ransomware infection you are dealing with. The tool will provide a list or text generated report of what was found and then provide the correct support links where you can receive assistance with that specific ransomware.

Troldesh (aka Encoder.858 or Shade) is a crypto-ransomware variant created in Russia that appends encrypted data files with an .XTBL extension.

The newest variants of CTB Locker typically appends encrypted data files with a 6-7 length extension consisting of random characters. A repository of all current knowledge regarding this infection is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this topic: CTB Locker and Critroni Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

There is also an ongoing discussion in this topic:Rather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any questions, comments or requests for assistance in that support topic discussion. Doing that will also ensure you receive proper assistance from our crypto malware experts since they may not see this thread. To avoid unnecessary confusion...this topic is closed.

Thanks
The BC Staff
