got infected by a new ransomware. It looks like a new type. It did not change the extensions of the files, also it either did not affect MP3 and ISO files, or simply the encryption is adding something in front or at the end of the file and its not encrypted fully i am not sure. Also some small video files are intact. I have recently formatted my drives , so the infection did not do any real damage. Attached are the 4 files that the encryptor left plus one encrypted zip, all are in another zip. Also i am using Malwarebytes Premium, it did not detect anything as usual. This is the 3rd infection it skips, due to being just released. Anyway i will probably format the disks again, so if you want me to send anything else let me know.
