Ciao.

I've been attacked by a Crytolocker virus and all of my *.doc* and *.pdf files are now encrypted, while the extension has been modified in *.xqlqvje.

I've not found any info about this virus.

Could anyone help me, please?

Many thanks.

Max

More information is needed to determine specifically what infection you are dealing with since there are several different ransomware infections which utilize a random 4, 5, 6, 7 character extension.

CTB-Locker and Maktub Locker are the two most common ransomware infections which use a random 6-7 character extension appended to the end of the file name. Alma Locker uses a random 5-6 character extension. Princess Locker uses a random 4-5 character extension. Some Xorist Ransomware variants will also have a random character extension (.73i87A, .p5tkjw, .0JELvV, UslJ6m, .n1wLp0, .5vypSa, .YNhlv1, .PoAr2w, .6FKR8d, .neitrino, .rtyrtyrty) appended to the end of the file name.

The best way to identify the different ransomwares that use "random character extensions" is the ransom note or at least information related to the email address used by the cyber-criminals.

Did you find any ransom notes? These infections are created to alert victims that their data has been encrypted and demand a ransom payment. Check your documents folder for an image the malware typically uses for the background note. Check the C:\ProgramData (or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data) for a randomly named .html, .txt, .png, .bmp, .url file. Most ransomware will also drop a ransom note in every directory/affected folder where data has been encrypted.

CTB-Locker will leave files (ransom notes) named DecryptAllFiles.txt, DecryptAllFiles_<user name>.txt, !Decrypt-All-Files.[7-random].html that contains ransom instructions but the newer variants do not always leave a ransom note if the malware fails to change the background like it typically does. An AllFilesAreLocked_<user name>.bmp image file may be left in the My Documents folder which contains further instructions on how to pay the ransom.

Maktub Locker displays a ransom note named _DECRYPT_INFO_[random].html.
Alma Locker will leave files (ransom notes) named Unlock_files_<random>.html, Unlock_files_<random>.txt.
Princess Locker will leave files (ransom notes) named !_HOW_TO_RESTORE_[extension].TXT, !_HOW_TO_RESTORE_[extension].html.
Xorist Ransomware variants will leave files (ransom notes) named HOW_TO_DECRYPT_FILES.TXT, READ TO DECRYPTIONS_.txt.

Based on infection rates we see, you are most likely dealing with CTB-Locker. You can submit samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware for assistance with identification and confirmation. This is a service that helps identify what ransomware may have encrypted your files and then attempts to direct you to an appropriate support topic where you can seek further assistance. Uploading both encrypted files and ransom notes together provides a more positive match and helps to avoid false detections.

I'found several "Decrypt*" files either .txt or .jpg with the same message:

 

"I tuoi documenti, foto, dati e altri file importanti sono stati criptati
con la crittografia forte e chiave univoca, generati per questo computer.

Chiave privata di decodifica e' memorizzata su un server segreto e nessuno
puo' decifrare i file fino  a quando si paga per ottenere la chiave privata.

Se viene visualizzata la finestra principale di Loker, segui le istruzioni sul
loker. Se non visualizzate nulla, sembra che voi o il vostro antivirus abbiate
eliminato il programma loker. Ora avete l'ultima possibilita' di decifrare i file.

Apri http://tmc2ybfqzgkaeilm.onion.cab o http://tmc2ybfqzgkaeilm.tor2web.org nel tuo browser.
Sono porte pubbliche al server segreto.

Se hai problemi con porte, utilizza la connessione diretta:

1. Scaricare Tor Browser dalla http://torproject.org/

2. Nel Browser Tor aprire la http://tmc2ybfqzgkaeilm.onion/

.
   Si noti che questo server e' disponibile solo tramite Tor Browser.

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 CTB-Locker 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.

Thanks
