Latest Cryptomix variant released

January 5, 2018

Just days after the creators of the Cryptomix ransomware came out with a new variant, another was issued that again changed the extension on the encrypited files.

This time around the new variant adds the .server extension and has a new list of contact email is included, according to Bleeping Computer. The email addresses listed on the plain text ransom note are:  [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], or [email protected]

Otherwise the ransomware behaves as before and Bleeping Computer noted there is no decryptor so the only protection is to practice solid cybersecurity hygiene and back up files.

A variant with similar changes was reported on Dec. 28
