Hi everybody!

 

I've following BleepingComputer tips and news since some years ago, and now it's time to register! :)

 

I work fixing computers, both from hardware and software problems. I've a long experience with both things, but the virus problems (which I face from time to time) are getting more and more complex in my opinion.

 

I love when a customer comes with virus. Don't get me wrong, I don't like they get infected, but I like to fight viruses, the challenge, specially when they are difficult to eliminate, and it's because I need to think about alternative solutions to finally remove it ;).

 

But there's one kind of viruses I don't like at all: ransomware! Those who invented it are really bad people.

 

I've faced ransomware 3 times now: the first time, I think it was cryptolocker and fortunatelly was easy to recover the original files from the previous folder images. The second time it was impossible to decrypt, and last time, I'm fighting it right now! ;). I got a customer with TeslaCrypt v8 (vvv files). Although one admin here is telling it's impossible to decrypt it, I found a thread in BC where people are being able to decrypt it! http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/new-telsacrypt-version-adds-the-vvv-extension-to-encrypted-files/

 

So although I have not decrypted it yet, I want to say thank you to the community here! :)

 

Oh, and Happy New Year! :)
