Any files that are encrypted with CryptXXX 3.x (UltraDecryptor) 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.

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.

In regards to free decryption keys, please refer to Post #1117 and this BC news article: CryptXXX providing free keys for .Crypz and .Cryp1 Versions

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
The BC Staff
