CrypMIC mimics CryptXXX in terms of entry point, ransom notes (README.TXT, README.HTML, README.BMP) and payment sites but it does not append an extension to encrypted files. CrypMIC does not append an obvious extension to the end of encrypted filenames...it is identified by unique hex patterns in the file header.

Unfortunately, there is still no known way to decrypt files encrypted by CrypMIC variants without paying the ransom.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can post comments, 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.

Thanks
