Got my files encrypted on 6/22/2016. All file names were preserved, but with a .41FEB added . The ransom note says the files  were encrypted by strong RSA 4096  and directed me to pay ransom at www.torproject.org .  Are these the same people who said they closed project on May 18, 2016 and disclosed the master key ? Is this variant .41FEB  decryptable at this point ?  I've read through hundreds of posts and there seemed no mentioning of this variant before.  Please help


Thanks in advance

Any files that are encrypted with CryptXXX 3.x (UltraDeCrypter/UltraCrypter) will have the .cryp1, .crypz or a random 5 hexadecimal character extension (i.e. .AC0D4, .DA3D1, .73E61, .EF538) appended to the end of the encrypted data filename as explained here.

CryptXXX 2.x/3.x variants will leave unique Personal ID files using random 12 hexadecimal characters with names like <id-number>.html, <id-number>.txt, <id-number>.bmp (i.e. S45CC72F3463.txt, !4AD604B8AE89.txt), !Recovery_<id-number>.html, !Recovery_<id-number>.txt, !Recovery_<id-number>.bmp (i.e. !Recovery_4582C8FAEB15.txt). The newest version of CryptXXX 3.x will have ransom notes with names like @[id-number].txt, @[id-number].bmp, @[id-number].html (i.e. 14AC2EF20B23.txt).

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. 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.
