Another difference is that files encrypted by the latest version of CryptXXX can no longer be decrypted by free tools. For earlier versions the free tool RannohDecryptor from Kaspersky Lab can be used, this will no longer work with the latest CryptXXX ransomware.
This tells you that the cryptowares are testing those tools and finding weakness to stop those tools. You know people stop using illegal software and going to black sites that would stop you from getting it and spreading to others contacts. It’s so easy but people still don’t learn and do the same thing over and over and ask why do I keep getting this cryptoware. I’d say take a good look at the person staring back at you in the Mirror.
