Welcome to BC
A repository of all current knowledge regarding TeslaCrypt
, Alpha Crypt
and newer variants is provided by Grinler
(aka Lawrence Abrams
), in this topic: TeslaCrypt and Alpha Crypt Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ
From the above FAQ Guide....What should you do when you discover your computer is infected with TeslaCrypt or Alpha Crypt
Many crypto ransomware variants are typically programmed to automatically remove the malicious files responsible for the infection after the encrypting is done since they are no longer needed. However, if another piece of malware was responsible for installing it, then that could still be present if your antivirus did not detect and remove it.
If you need individual assistance ONLY
with a malware infection, you should follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide
. When you have done that, start a new topic and post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum
, NOT here
, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.
If you choose to follow the above instructions and post a FRST log, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can closed this one. If not, at least you know doing that is an option available to you.
Information about and support for decrypting files affected by Alpha Crypt & TeslaCrypt ransomware can be found in this topic:
Also see here
for possible decryption information with each version.
There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can ask questions and seek further assistance.
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 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.
