Hi guys.

 Back in 2013  i believe,  I was hit with CryptoLocker... I tired the Tesla decoder.and nothing . SO i put my HD away til now. Figuring Hmmm Maybe i can finally decrypt my files.


I was told by others on you- tube to get Tor and try to sign on using some server but its not working..


Open http://34r6hq26q2h4jkzj.42k2bu15.com or http://34r6hq26q2h4jkzj.79fhdm16.com,
https://34r6hq26q2h4jkzj.s5.tor-gateways.de/ in your browser.
They are public gates to the secret server.
Copy and paste the following Bitcoin address in the input form on server. Avoid missprints.
Follow the instructions on the server.




 Even on My Win 7 HD my Key.dat is key.dat.ecc


 But i found  another key.dat  and tried using it with the steps i had to follow with   TELSADECODER. and got a private key . and still couldn't get my files decrypted.


 Can someone Please help me..


 Thank you so much


 Janet :)

If your files have .ecc, it is not CryptoLocker.


For the first variant of TeslaCrypt with .ecc, we can only decrypt yoru data if you have the key.dat, and/or the text document that it leaves with more information; RECOVERY_FILES.TXT would have been left in the My Documents of the infected computer.

Try to decrypt key.dat.ecc with the key you got from key.dat you found. Then load decrypted key.dat into TeslaDecoder and you will see if there is still a a valid private key in that key.dat file and try that key.

Support for TeslaCrypt 2.x (and older versions) is provided in this topic where victims can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance..
Support for decryption requests is provided here: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 one of the above support topic discussions, particularly the last if dealing with one of the newer variants...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.
