It appears I have contracted another new variant of CryptoMix Revenge using the .PIRATE extension and cannot find any information about it or how to decrypt the files.  It created the text file _INTERESTING_INFORMACION_FOR_DECRYPT.TXT with the following message contained in it:

 

All you files encrypted

 
For decrypt write to email:
 
msdecry@aol.com
 
Then it has an ID for my system.  I have already submitted to ID Ransomware to detect.  Where do I go from here?  Any help would be huge.  Thank you!

Could you share the full ransom note here (in a code block)? ID Ransomware discarded the ransom notes that we identified as CryptoMix; would like to double-confirm before adding the extension, since I have not seen a sample yet.

Here is the ransom note _INTERESTING_INFORMACION_FOR_DECRYPT.TXT   

 All you files encrypted

 For decrypt write to email:

 msdecry@aol.com

 You ID - c1037ba2-ba5e-4814-8dd8-2f75fb9b78de


ID Ransomware identified the file as CryptoMix Revenge. Any suggestions?

I still haven't seen a sample yet to confirm, and that note is rather skimpy; usually CryptoMix has a Tor site and some links to Wikipedia about the encryption it uses.

 

It most likely is CryptoMix, but I will still reserve fully identifying it until we can confirm a sample for now.

What do you need for a sample? Perhaps I can provide?

We need the malware itself.

@ mbial

If you can find the malicious executable that you suspect was involved in causing the infection, it can be submitted here with a link to this topic. There is a "Link to topic where this file was requested" box under the Browse... button. Demonslay335 has access to all submission samples and will then be able to analyze.
