Hello All,

 On may 9, 2017, files on a PC were encrypted:

         e.g. 14371.inf.id_708037508_fgb45ft3pqamyji7.onion


Dropped message in -DECRYPT-MY-FILES.txt


To decrypt your files you need to buy the special software. To recover data, follow the instructions!
You can find out the details/ask questions in the chat:
You ID: xxxxxxxxx
If the resource is not available for a long time, install and use the Tor-browser:
1. Run your Internet-browser
2. Enter or copy the address https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html in the address bar of your browser and press key ENTER
3. On the site will be offered to download the Tor-browser, download and install it. Run.
4. Connect with the button "Connect" (if you use the English version)
5. After connection, the usual Tor-browser window will open
6. Enter or copy the address http://fgb45ft3pqamyji7.onion in the address bar of Tor-browser and press key ENTER
7. Wait for the site to load
If you have any problems installing or using, please visit the video tutorial


On submitting encrypted file at ID-Ransomware, Cry9 was identified. but on using decryptor, I'm getting -"The encrypted file needs to be exactly 68 bytes bigger the the unencrypted version of the file".



Tried avast_decryptor_crysis also but did not work....


Anyone facing the same issue with this recent version of .onion extension Ransomware?



Thanks in advance.

Any files that are encrypted with Cry128, a newer variant of CryptON (X3M, Nemesis), will have the the .onion._, .onion and .onion.to._ extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename (i.e .id_<id>_gebdp3k7bolalnd4.onion._, id_<id>_1506904074_fgb45ft3pqamyji7.onion, .id.[bonum_malum@aol.com].onion, .fgb45ft3pqamyji7.onion.to._, id-<id>_qg6m5wo7h3id55ym.onion.to.63vc4) and leaves files (ransom notes) named -DECRYPT-MY-FILES.txt, _DECRYPT_MY_FILES.txt, ### DECRYPT MY FILES ###.

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.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where victims 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.
