What is a WALLET file?

A WALLET file is a file encrypted by the CryptoMix, or CrypMix, virus, which is ransomware utilized by cybercriminals. It contains a user's file, such as a .PDF or .DOCX file, encrypted with AES encryption by the virus. WALLET files are similar to .LOCKY files but became prevalent in 2017.

More Information

The CryptoMix virus may also be referred to as a CrypMix, CryptFile2, or Dharma virus. It is dangerous malware that is commonly known as ransomware, where the purpose of the virus is to take your files hostage and force you to pay the perpetrator (by way of bitcoin) to unlock your files.

Once the virus infiltrates your computer it begins scrambling your files, renaming them, and encrypting them. The virus then generates a .TXT ransom note (#_RESTORING_FILES_#.TXT) informing you of the takeover and what you need to do to recover your files.

The virus appends the [email@email.com].ID[victim_16_character_ID].wallet extension to your files. For example, if you have a sample.docx file it becomes sample.docx.webmafia@asia.com.ID0SHDGS2SJD5DFOCK.wallet file. The [email@email.com] address is most likely one of the following addresses:

  • braker@plague.life
  • crannbest@foxmail.com
  • stopper@india.com
  • amagnus@india.com
  • funa@india.com
  • webmafia@asia.com
  • bitcoin143@india.com
  • mkgoro@india.com
  • lavandos@dr.com
  • worm01@india.com
  • pay4help@india.com

NOTE: There is no program currently available to effectively restore your files. If you back up your files you can execute a full system restore.
