TeslaCrypt includes several known versions with various extensions for encrypted files such as .ecc, .ezz, .exx, .xyz, .zzz, .aaa, .abc, .ccc, .vvv as described here. TeslaCrypt 3.0 .xxx, .ttt, .micro variants are described in this news article. The TeslaCrypt 3.0 .mp3 variant is described here. TeslaCrypt 4.0 no longer uses an obvious extension for encrypted filenames...although when first released it used the .mp3 extension. Any files that are encrypted with TeslaCrypt 3.0 will have the .xxx, .ttt, .micro or .mp3 extension appended to the end of the affected filename.

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.

Currently, there is no way of decrypting TeslaCrypt 3.0 .xxx, .ttt, .micro, .mp3 variants or TeslaCrypt 4.0 unless you pay the ransom since they use a different protection/key exchange algorithm, a different method of key storage and the key for them cannot be recovered. The .xxx, .ttt, micro and .mp3 variants do not have a SharedSecret*PrivateKey so they are not supported by the current version of TeslaViewer. The tool can decrypt TeslaCrypt 3.0 files only if you have the private key acquired from the malware developer after paying the ransom. If infected with any of these extensions, backup all your encrypted files and wait for a possible solution.

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:Support for TeslaCrypt 3.0/4.0 is in this topic where you can ask questions and seek further assistance but as noted above there is no solution to fix your encrypted files yet.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 support topic discussionss, 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.

Thanks
