Any files that are encrypted with the newest variant of CryptON (Cry9, Cry36, Cry128, X3M, Nemesis) will have a random 5
character hexadecimal extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename (i.e. .id-1163283255_[firstname.lastname@example.org].08c85
) and leave files (ransom notes) named ### DECRYPT MY FILES ###.txt.
You can submit samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware
for assistance with identification
. 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.
