System Cryptomix Ransomware Variant Released

February 2nd, 2018 By Lawrence Abrams

 

Michael Gillespie discovered a new Cryptomix variant uploaded to ID-Ransomware this week. Today, I was able to find a sample so we can see what has changed. For the most part, it is the same as previous variants except it now appends the .SYSTEM extension to encrypted files and changes the contact emails used by the ransomware. 

 

In this article I will provide a brief summary of any changes that have occurred in this new variant.  As we are always looking for weaknesses, if you are a victim of this variant and decide to pay the ransom, please send us the decryptor so we can take a look at it. You can also discuss or receive support for Cryptomix ransomware infections in our dedicated Cryptomix Help & Support Topic.
