  1. OK this might sound stupid but I downloaded a sample of CryptoWall the fourth version or variant of it for analyzing purpose as I am a student of software engineering university and a passionate of reverse engineering and studying it in a way. I have a small virus zoo in my hard drive containing samples of over 1300 famous and infamous computer viruses all RARed and locked tight and whenever I hunt a sample from the web I work very carefully with it and mostly in a virtual machine but this time I was directly on my PC I downloaded the sample from this page http://www.malware-traffic

  4. I'm looking for a tool to identify which files have been encrypted, by scanning a possibly contaminated hard drive installed in a newly formatted computer which was not the one originally infected. I think I managed to catch Cryptowall before it encrypted my whole computer, luckily I have several terabytes of storage. Also all my primary drives (C:, scratch drive, etc) are SSD's which I think saturated my serial controller and prevented Cryptowall from getting to my storage drives I don't care about them I'll just nuke them with Dban or parted magic. I currently have my storage drives remo
  5. Hi, everyone. About 2 weeks ago, my half sister messaged me saying that when she was trying to watch a movie on her PC, it kept making beeping noises or similar. I checked it out the next day and she was infected with Cryptowall 3.0. She more than likely got it from uTorrent/BitTorrent(where she downloads movies from). She had Malwarebytes installed, but every time we tried to launch it, it would be extremely slow and then crash. I tried many times and it didn't work at all. I booted the PC into Safemode with Networking and cleared out as many files the ransomware copied(in EVERY single fold

  7. I have a customer that was hit by both Cryptowall 3 and TeslaCrypt Ransomware on 2 separate pc's while running Malwarebytes premium and Malwarebytes Anti Exploit premium on all the pc's on the network. Neither of these strains are new so how was the infection possible. My concern is that I have a large number of customers running this combination ( Malwarebytes Premium & Anti Exploit Premium) that I have regarded as safe from this type of infection. These customers also run various paid for anti-virus programs. Is there something I'm missing or should they be safe? Thanks all, I look forwa
  8. Some how I got infected with the cryptowall 3.0 virus. I think it was through java but not sure how. Most of the files are not encrypted as of yet and I would like to remove the virus and clean what files I can before I reformat my C drive and do a clean install. I am hoping, (since I don't see any evidence of encryption), that my 3 TB storage drive is clean. However I would like to make sure everything is clean on the other drive before proceeding with a new install on C. Is there anyone that can help me through this process? After running a Malwarebytes scan and fixing any problems, I
  9. Hello! I'm new in the forum, Yesterday evening I had found in my PC (win 7 original) the four of the trojan Cryptowall. All my images are corroupted (I'm a photographer) and also the backup file are too. Now i'm trying to delate this malware: I start win in safe mode, i've lookin the process whit "msconfig" and delate it in the directory. Then I've serch the name of that file (e380af) in the registry (regedit) and delate all file that i found (ecxept some key that contain this "e380af" in a midle of a long string). Before I've use Malwarebytes, Avast and Spybot (no one have found nothing).
  10. I have files that are encrypted and state they are being encrypted by Cryptowall 3.0. I've ran Malwarebytes scan, Malwarebytes rootkit scan, I ran Hitman. Nothing is finding anything related to the cryptowall. Could the source of the malware be on another computer connected to a network but not present on the computer with the encrypted files?
  11. Has anyone dealt with the Cryptowall ransomware? This system got infected, and now we can't open any files at all. They are all encrypted. Almost every folder has 4 additional files in them named HELP_DECRYPT (different types of files, html, etc.). And every time the computer is restarted, an HTML page comes up with "instructions on how to fix it" and the links are different each time. (the fix, as you probably know, is to pay a ransom fee) Please Help Me!

  13. Hello everyone, 24 hours ago I was hit by Cryptowall on my windows 8 laptop. I only put it into safemode after the your computer has been encrypted messaged appeared. There were a total of 6 new files on my desktop named Help_Decypt.html, and JPG images saves from the .html files as 1,2,3,4 and 5. Since then I had tried: 1. Spybot and SuperAntispyware ( my first instinct to check with and they came back negative) 2. Malwarebytes - This detected Help_Decypt.html and removed it. The JPG files still detected as any threat and I removed them manually. 3. Symatec help self-extractor did not s
  14. Hi there- I took my husbands computer to try to help determine why it was running increasingly slow. He mentioned "some antivirus warning" kept flashing on the screen- so I went to work trying to isolate WHAT that was (it was Security Defender). As I am working my way through getting rid of that, I realized some help files I'd not seen before, (help_decrypt), showed up in a folder. Hence, CryptoWall is working it's way through. Please, please, please help me get this thing stopped in it's tracks- I understand you can't resurrect the files it's affected, but help stopping it from doing mo
  15. Hi, a computer in our house got infected with cryptowall 3.0, Is there any chance that it can copy itself to another computer in our network? Thanks, Tal.
  16. My office was hit by the CryptoWall 3.0 Trojan yesterday. I was able to find the workstation that the infection came through after some of the files on our ReadyNAS server were encrypted. My colleagues scanned their computers with MBAM and no additional instances of the CW executable (listed as aaaaaaaa.exe and attached) or its associated registry keys were detected. I quarantined and removed the executables and registry keys from the host computer and plan to re-format and re-image it entirely, since there are still startup scripts running that launch the ransomware messages. This brings

  19. Hi, I think I just got the CryptoWall 3.0 virus on March 15. I really would like to know if there is anyone that could help me save my files and get the other ones back?
  20. Hello, A few days ago my PC started running extremely slow, so I scanned it and it found something which it removed. PC started running fine again, and I didn't think much of it. Now a few days later I started finding all those HELP_DECYPT files in various folders and that is how I learned about CryptoWall and that is what my PC had been infected with. Now, my question is, besides from searching folders for HELP_DECRYPT files, is there any other way to find out which files have been encrypted? You see, after I successfully removed the infection itself from my PC, but before I learned about Cry

  23. I recently made a post on here that was ruined by an unauthorized user posting an answer. However, being as that post does not include new information I just found out, it is no longer needed. On January 26th, my computer started running very slowly. After that, it started freezing after only being up for roughly 5 minutes, so I system restored back to an earlier date. However, upon it booting from the system restore, it told me it was unsuccessful, so I tried another restore. This one had the same result, however it made the computer actually work. It wasn't until I clicked to go to my manusc
  24. Hello! I've tried for the past three days (to no avail) to remove the Cryptowall 3.0 ransomware virus from my computer. I've run Malwarebytes, Kaspersky Anti Virus, SpyHunter (never again) and countless other anti virus software applications and nothing will get rid of it! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've attached my FRST log files for reference. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  25. I have a Windows 7 PC that is infected with CryptoWall 3.0. I have done a bit of research and see that this is a nasty son of a gun. If anyone is willing or able to point me in the right direction to see if I can do anything to save my PC or files I would appreciate it.
