Hello experts:

Received a SQL bkup file that was zipped with WINZIP and encrypted using CRYPTOLOG. The file has an extension of cea.
I have no idea how to open this file. I tried WINZIP and it tried to zip  

Any ideas?

It sounds like you'll have to decrypt it with CRYPTOLOG before you can unzip it with WinZip. It's a socks and shoes sort of thing; you can't take off your socks before you've taken off your shoes.
