We need more information than that. Are you saying you have a way of decrypting a ransomware we haven't heard of? Or are you asking if there is a solution?

 

Please provide encrypted files and a ransom note, and if you can find the malware, we need that for analysis. You may zip them together and submit here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php?channel=168

From looking at submissions to ID Ransomware, this may be a variant of CryptoMix / Mole. Will need a sample to confirm.

Looks like you may be dealing with two ransomware infections. The .EXTE files I suspect are a new variant of CryptoMix as I previously posted. The other files with the email address are Cryakl; there is no way to decrypt those files. You most likely got hit by Cryakl first, then CryptoMix. In that case, there will be no way to fully decrypt your files, even if the new version of CryptoMix is found to be decryptable.

 

You can really only either pay both ransoms or restore from backups.

Hard lesson to learn.

Other possible options include using native Windows Previous Versions or programs like Shadow Explorer and ShadowCopyView if the malware did not delete all shadow copy snapshots as it typically does or the encrypted process was interrupted. It never hurts to try in case the malware did not do what it was supposed to do...it is not uncommon for these infections to sometimes fail to delete the Shadow Volume Copies. In some cases the use of file recovery software such as R-Studio or Photorec may be helpful to recover some of your original files but there is no guarantee that will work either...again, it never hurts to try.

If that is not a viable option and if there is no free decryption tool, the only other alternative to paying the ransom is to backup/save your encrypted data as is and wait for a possible breakthrough...meaning, what seems like an impossibility at the moment (decryption of your data), there is always hope someday there may be a potential solution.

Hi I just found this topic today, but I was posting about this virus in Mole Ransomware / CryptoMix Revenge. I do have .exe virus which I already sent to bleepingcomputer staff, also I have some identical encrypted and original files. In my case I was able to recover files with ShadowExplorer, but from the  previous OS installation.

It's been confirmed by MalwareBytes that this .EXTE ransomware is a new variant of CryptoMix / Mole / Revenge.

Since the infection has been identified, rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if victims posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in one of the below support topic discussions.

To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.

Thanks
