  1. Hi Everyone, A few months back my friend's father got some version of the TeslaCrypt ransomware, He ended up paying the money, Long story short, he got the decryption program and it decrypted most files but although the original file extensions are showing and the files are opening in some programs, almost all the files are still being recgonised as .mp3 files, some open in their respective program, some don't. Does anyone have any idea how I would fix that? What has worked for some, primary microsoft office files, is opening them in Word/Excel and saving as .doc again and the new saved files lose the .mp3 properties, but some programs won't open their old files, a bit lost on what to do Regards,
  2. Anyone else getting attacked with malicious .zip files recently? Looks like a strain of teslacrypt ransomware that encrypts files with the .vvv extension. Typically for us these have only ever infected C: drives on pc's but this particular strain has also encrypted some files on a mapped drive from a server. Managed to restore server and re-image the PC involved but curious to see if anyone else has seen this malware recently??? Cheers
  3. Having discovered that TeslaCrypt has made its master decode key available 6 days ago and decrypting using this key has been wrapped into a free application called TeslaDecoder.exe ( see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/teslacrypt-shuts-down-and-releases-master-decryption-key/) I ran this on the infected computer with MBARW installed and saw that it was detected as malware and had supposedly been moved to quarantine, but the quarantine display did not show it and the TeslaDecoder.exe remained in the directory to which it had been copied.

  5. 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 forward to your thoughts.
