Recent analysis and subsequent BTC investigation relating to the recent johnycryptor@aol.com (Troldesh/Shade) ransomware campaigns: https://destructiveresearch.wordpress.com/2016/07/10/774/

Has anyone else been a recent victim of the ransomware?

Any files that are encrypted by Troldesh (Shade) will have an .XTBL or .YTBL extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename. In later versions, Kaspersky lab advises the malware added the infected computer’s ID and then the .xtbl extension to the file name like this example...ArSxrr+acw970LFQw.043C17E72A1E91C6AE29.xtbl. According to ESET, the newer variants append an additional .<id-random>.<email>.xtbl extension...see here

I am not aware of any fix tool or way to decrypt Troldesh (Shade) encrypted data without paying the ransom.

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.

Thanks
