I have a MicroSD Card. All folder structure is there with file names, but the headers for all files have been changed. If it is a virus I have not seen this before (no changes to file extensions). The headers detail the word 'console'. Anyone seen this before?

Could it be a CryptConsole ransomware variant?

All the files still have their existing names rather than an added extension created by the virus, and there is also no ransom note so I don't think so. But as this was a MicroSD it may have just been collateral damage, but the client says no virus hit his PC.
