Can Cryptowall 3.0 Spread after i have made a image of HDD with Acronis via Boot CD

Hi everyone,

I have had a customer that has been infected by the cryptowall 3.0 ransomware and i am just doing fresh install after reformatting HDD

I have made a image on a USB Hard drive via Acronis via Boot CD of the infected system just for a reference point to go back on while i am trying to restore files.

I used malware bytes to delete the infection and rang it twice the first time it picking it up and deleting the second time it finding nothing.

Is there still a chance it is still infected and that Acronis TIB file being a risk plugging back into a new system and looking at.

Thanks Adam



As long as it isn't the boot image and you don't open any files you'll be fine. Check this article

Thanks For your reply

This one was a bugger new version of Cyrptowall seems to delete the shadow copies as well

Good lessons for backups for this customer
