Doing some research on crypto-virus family (aka. the viruses that actually encrypts your files and hold them for ransom, not the ones that only pretends to encrypt them, duh).

I have however ran out of samples. Also the few samples I got of cryptowall 4 kinda expired (the TOR servers they point towards were ddos'ed or something, no longer up) before I got around to test them :harp:


So I need more samples. Any type will do, cryptolocker, cryptowall, etc. Doesn't matter, as long as it actually encrypts your files. 

If your computer have been infected, or you know somebody who has, and are willing to send me the virus file, it would be much appreciated. I may even mention you in a "thank you to these people" section of the article :great:


I can also be of assistance to dig out the file myself trough remote control if needed. PM me or something, or skype works as well :)


E-mail to submit samples (without virus scan, because obvious): 1451332276(at)qq.com

For other ways to submit (aka ftp), PM me.
