Welcome to BC.
Any files that are encrypted with the newer variant of TeslaCrypt will have the .xyz, .zzz, .aaa, .abc, .ccc or .vvv extension appended to the end of the filename. The .aaa/.abc/.ccc/.vvv variants leave .html, .txt, files (ransom notes) with names like Howto_RESTORE_FILES_.TXT, RECOVERY_FILE_*****.txt, restore_files_*****.txt, recover_file_*****.txt, Howto_RESTORE_FILES_*****.txt, howto_recover_file_*****.txt, _how_recover_*****.txt, how_recover+****.txt (where * are random characters).
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
Information about decrypting files affected by TeslaCrypt & Alpha Cryptransomware can be found here and in this topic: TeslaDecoder released to decrypt .EXX, .EZZ, .ECC files encrypted by TeslaCrypt
There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can ask questions and seek further assistance.
Support for decryption requests should be posted 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 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.
