Ransomware ID seems to identify it as CryptoXXX, while MS Defender classify it as TesCrypt.C (but actually TeslaDecoder does not decode them). Here an infected file:




here the note (it was a .txt file, just renamed to abc to not have Defener clean up it)




Thank for any advice!

It is definitely CryptXXX 3.0. ID Ransomware is correct in identifying based on the random 5-letter extension, plus the format of the ransom note filename (@ with 12 hex characters). AV vendors are not very consistent with their detection names unfortunately, Defender is way off on this one...

There is no way to decrypt CryptXXX 3.0 currently. It is best to backup your encrypted files and hope for a solution in the future. You may check out the appropriate support topic for more information on the ransomware, and discussion from other victims.

A repository of all current knowledge regarding CryptXXX is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this topic: CryptXXX Ransomware Help, Information Guide and FAQ.

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. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
