I have came across a New Ransomware which

leaves ransom notes with the names of





And these ransom note variations 7 days prior






I would like to help warn people about this ransomware. I will make a data backup of the Hard Drive and dev if you

would Pm me for what information I could supply you with. I will post it all here. I will append my first post with all new data.

At First glance this ransomware does not change the file names at all, so files keep their original names.

This is TeslaCrypt 4.0. It has used that structure of ransom note filenames for a bit now. ID Ransomware in my signature detects it by the ransom note and the hex pattern of the encrypted files. I'm afraid there is no solution at this time.

Thank you. I'll stop posting now then.

I have tracked down load points , unfortunately for this person they are using Windows Vista and only had 2 shadow copies and the encryption started days before the last one so they are SOL.

Support for TeslaCrypt 3.0/4.0 is provided 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 the support 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.
