Hi all,


I have folders that were infected with the Crypt v2 (I believe)/ .crypt ransomware infection.  In any case, after matching a couple of good files with the encrypted ones I managed to decrypt quite a bit (say, 65% at least).  I used the TrendMicro tool as well as the Kaspersky. In any case, I have directories where if I have 50 pictures (.jpg) in some cases anywhere from 20 - 30 were successfully decrypted while the others weren't at all.  In other folders it's only a few while the rest remain encrypted.


I also have some larges files (.avis and .mp4s for example) that were not decrypted at all.   I noticed that most excel documents and word documents were decrypted as well as .pdf.


Did I miss something?  Do I need a better clean matching file? I thought that they'd all have the same encryption key/algorithm and thus everything would be decrypted altogether.


Any advice, help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. 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.
