Hello Raymond .

Please avoid sending a same query in different mediums. You may get duplicate response(s).

We are not creating any files with Ransomware file pattern. .axx is our default and only file extension.

All text editing, word/image processing, and more other softwares are having its own default extension.

For example:  Notepad’s default extension is.txt, Word’s default extension .docx and etc.

Like the same way, AxCrypt was developed.  AxCrypt encrypted files having the .axx file extension as per our design.

Also we need AxCrypt application to decrypt the AxCrypt encrypted files.

Only, for some very common file formats, most operating systems come with some form (often limited) of software pre-installed.

Unfortunately Operating system providers does not yet include AxCrypt with their operating systems.

So please add .axx file extension in your server whitelist.
