Hello jackal313_3,

You will need access to a working computer, a CD and a USB to do the following:

Download GETxPUD.exe to the desktop of your clean computer
  • Run GETxPUD.exe
  • A new folder will appear on the desktop.
  • Open the GETxPUD folder and click on the get&burn.bat
  • The program will download xpud_0.9.2.iso, and when finished, it will open BurnCDCC which will be ready to burn the image.
  • Click on Start and follow the prompts to burn the image to a CD.
Now we need to prepare the USB, It doesnt necessarily need to be formatted, but might help if it is >
  • Insert your USB drive
  • Press Start > My Computer > right click your USB drive > choose Format > Quick format
  • Next download ransom.sh to your USB drive
  • Remove the USB and insert it into the infected computer
  • Boot the infected computer with the CD you just burned
  • The computer must be set to boot from the CD (varies from PC to PC > but generally F12, F11 or F9 will access the boot menu)
  • Follow the prompts
  • A Welcome to xPUD screen will appear > select your language
  • When xPUD opens > Click on File
  • Expand mnt
  • sda1 or sda2 will usually correspond to your HDD > sda1 and/or sda2 may not be visible with this infection, > this is typical
  • sdb1 is likely your USB
  • Expand your USB (sdb1)
  • Confirm that you see the file ransom.sh that you previously downloaded
  • Press Tool on the top menu bar
  • Choose Open Terminal
  • Type bash ransom.sh
  • You should see the message

    ransomware mbr code detected on /dev/sda
    repairing mbr on /dev/sda
    mbr code OK on /dev/sdb

  • A log file named log.txt will also be created on the USB
  • this should only take a brief moment to complete
  • Once completed > type exit to close the Terminal Window
  • Now go to Home > restart > remove the xPUD CD from the machine before it starts to reboot to allow the machine to reboot normally.
  • If the script was successful, your machine should now be booting normally

regards, Elise
