You are dealing with a variant of TeslaCrypt ransomware which includes several known versions with various extensions for encrypted files such as .ecc, .ezz, .exx, .xyz, .zzz, .aaa, .abc, .ccc, .vvv as described here.

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 for decrypting files with .ecc, .ezz, .exx, .xyz, .zzz, .aaa, .abc, .ccc, or .vvv extensions can be found in this BC News article: TeslaCrypt Decrypted: Flaw in TeslaCrypt allows recovery of encrypted files. Instructions on how to recover the key for decryption are also included in TeslaDecoder.zip.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can ask questions and seek further assistance.

Support for decryption requests can 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 one of those topic discussions, particularly the last if dealing with one of the newer variants. 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.
