ccc file extension Removal

The ccc file extension is added to files encrypted by TeslaCrypt Ransomware, also known as CryptoLocker-v3 (not the real CryptoLocker). Depending on the version of this ransomware, you might discover that the files encrypted have different extensions, including .ecc and .vvv. Although this threat does not change the original files’ extensions, it adds its own .ccc extension, which might help you identify which files were corrupted. Although most ransomware threats, such as Alpha Crypt and CryptoLocker, target personal files, TeslaCrypt Ransomware is primarily interested in your gaming files, as well as iTunes account-related files. This means that you will find the .ccc extension attached to files with such extensions as .sc2save, .mcmeta, .wotreplay, .desc, .jpeg, .mrwref, .indd, and .mdbackup.
