Hi,

 

A friend of mine was infected with a ransomware virus. It is saying that "your data was secured using a strong encryption with rsa4096". I searched about this encryption and all of them say that the files had a different extension. In my case, everything has his own original extension, like .doc, .pdf, etc

 

When I boot up the computer, it will show at startup:

System is Windows XP SP3

Antivirus: AVG Free 2016

MS Office 2003

Internet Explorer 8

 

If some has encountered this type of ransomware, please advise on how can I recover the data since there is no backup.

 

thanks for you help

TeslaCrypt 4.0will leave files (ransom notes) with names like RECOVER+[random].TXT, RECOVER[5-random].TXT, recover_file.txt, _rEcOvEr_[5-random].txt, +-HELP-RECOVER-+[5-random]-+.txt, +REcovER+[5-random].txt, -!RecOveR!-[5-random]++.txt, {RecOveR}-[5-random]__.txt.

Currently, there is no way of decrypting TeslaCrypt 4.0 or TeslaCrypt 3.0 .xxx, .ttt, .micro, .mp3 variants 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 3.0/4.0 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.

Support for TeslaCrypt 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.

When or if a solution is discovered, that information will be provided in the support topic and you will receive notification if subscribed to it. In addition, a news article most likely will be posted on the BleepingComputer front page.

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.

Thanks
The BC Staff
