I have a computer that has been encrypted. I have included the ransom note name and what was added to every file that was encrypted. I uploaded these to https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com and got two results. Cry36 which it says there is no decrypter for. It also returns Cry9 which does have a decryptor available but it doesn't work. I was wondering if there was any info about this.

Any files that are encrypted with Cry9, Cry36, the newest variants of CryptON will have a random 5 character hexadecimal extension appended to the end of the encrypted filename (i.e. .id-1163283255_[liukang@mortalkombat.su].08c85, .id-1163283255_[mk.baraka@aol.com].830s7, .id-1163283255_[mk.stryker@aol.com].i05fp) and leave files (ransom notes) named ### DECRYPT MY FILES ###.txt. Encrypted files are typically 36 bytes larger than the original file once the encryption process is completed and they are not decryptable at this time.

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.
