CryptXXX UltraCrypter are now adding random extensions to victims. Instead .crypt, .cryp1 and .crypz different victims will have different extension.

CryptXXX or UltraCrypter have just come out with latest and brilliant new version previously adding .crypt .cryp1 .crypz file extension. Since .crypt extension first discovered as a CryptXXX ransomware we can see major work and constant development. At the beginning of .crypt extension Kaspersky Labs cracked the code and rakhnidecryptor was working fine and decrypting files for free. A few weeks later CryptXXX was the first update with no major differences, which blocked rakhnidecryptor for a couple of days. However not long after, constant new ransom extensions (.cryp1 .crypz) are spreading online like tides and may be with new extensions every single week. Well if you wonder if you can decrypt douse, the answer is no, at least for now. Latest upgrades of CryptXXX considered as a 3.1 version, which imported increased effectiveness including network share encryption, made Kaspersky rakhnidecryptor useless. The reason for all this may be teslacrypt shut down, announced just before the big rise of the CryptXXX ransomware. According to security researchers from bleepingcomputer the distributors are moving from Teslacrypt to may be a better ransomware strain CryptXXX, which is now ultracryptor.

CryptXXX-Ultra-Crypter-note

The ambition of the criminals behind CryptXXX 3.1, in order to stop Kasperky rakhnidecryptor, delivering bad news to victims. It looks like they broke their own decryptor and even if you pay the ransom you will not be able to decrypt files for now. We strongly advise not to pay the ransom simply because users will be provided with non working decryptor. Consider removing and protecting your pc with anti-malware program.

CryptXXX Ransomware .crypt

This ransomware keeps surprising security researcher with the latest innovations presented from cybercriminals. Instead of using the same extension to all users, CryptXXX will randomly add different file extension (5 characters) to different victims. According to bleeping computer one computer’s encrypted files may use the extension .AC0D4, while another victim’s files would use the .DA3D1 extension. Depending on the victim ID the ransom note will be set to [victim_id].txt. For example if user ID is 14AC2EF20B23 the note will be 14AC2EF20B23.html, 14AC2EF20B23.bmp and 14AC2EF20B23.txt.
