Since I assume your personal files are all “infected” with the .aaa file extension and you are wondering what it is, you should know – it is a highly sophisticated encryption that is a living nightmare for anyone trying to solve it.
The .aaa file extension is native to the newest and ugliest version of the CryptoWall ransomware – the proverbial boogeyman even among its peers. I understand this worries you and you are in a hurry, but please take the time to read the rest of this first section since your situation is probably quite delicate. The first and foremost thing you should know – do not pay the ransom the virus wants you to pay. This should be your last desperation move if everything else fails. Also, if you received any messages that the decryption key for your files might be destroyed if you tamper with Cryptowall’s .aaa file extension, in all likelihood this can really happen. Which is exactly why you need to carefully examine everything here before proceeding. There is no room for mistakes on your part.
However, if you are tempted to just pay up and be done with it, consider this: there is nothing to stop the .aaa file extension creators from simply taking your money and leaving your files encrypted. This may sound like a something that’s bad for business, but it actually can really happen. How can such a thing be profitable at all then?, is the other question, if you consider they might not unlock the .aaa file extension and leave your system. The answer to this is simple:
Your Personal Information Might be Exposed!
This is not a joke at all. This includes any credit cards connected to accounts.
