Ransomware help
« on: 15. September 2016., 20:01:20 »
Hello! I have a big problem and I need help. Yesterday I opened strange email and something gone wrong. Now all my files are encrypted by strange virus CrypMIC and I’m really stuck with it because I don’t know what to do next. I tried to change file extensions manually but it doesn’t work, also I tried different antivirus apps (Avira, Avg, Bitdefender all free version) but they didn’t help either. One thing that helped me is ShadowExplorer which I found here. With a help of this application I managed to decrypt MS Office files, but my photo, video and other files stay locked. :(

So I want to ask you, is there a similar to ShadowExplorer application that will help me to decrypt rest of infected files? Or the only way out is to pay bitcoin for decryption? :-\

Sorry, Even If You Pay, No One Guarantees That The Other Party Will Honor Their Commitment.

As A Future Lesson Learned The Hardest Way ( Maybe Not ), What Would You Do If Your Computer Was Totally Destroyed ( In A Fire, Or Something ) ?

Having A Couple Of External, And OffLine, Hard Drives With A Total Backup ( Done At Regular Intervals ) Is A Cheap Solution That Oh So Many People Overlook Until They Get A Real Scare Like This.

Hopefully, Someone Here Will Help You.

Good Luck.

It all comes down to the encryption algorithm... but no one can assure you the files can ever be recovered :/

from what i know, antivirus this day can only prevent from ransomeware attacks.. it will be a different story if you already get infected by ransomware
