So my client got the CryptoLocker Virus and decided to cough up the $300.
 
 
Went to walgreens, loaded up the $300 MoneyPak
Created a Visa Card on the GreenDot.com card
Logged into the affected terminal server account.
Entered in the MoneyPak code - it went into the "Waiting for payment activation" screen
I entered the MoneyPak Code into the GreenDot visa account.
 
I waited about 3 hours for this thing to decrypt... nothing. went ot bed.
Woke up about 6 hours later, logged into the affected account.
BAM!!!!!! - It started decrypting!!!!
 
I logged into the GreenDot account, there was still $300 on there, CLOSED ACCOUNT!!!
 
I contacted GreenDot support, and i asked whats going to happen to my account, and if there was any transactions made to withdrawal the money.
They stated no transactions, that ill receive a check by 11/07/2013

But if i do, i hope this could become a sticky.

 

 

Money is still there, this is day 3.

Code entered Monday.

Started decrypting Tuesday morning, and closed account immediately.

Wednesday, still closed, but showed as deposited, and waiting for the check from GreenDot

 

Crossing my fingers for some free beer money!

EXCELLENT mate !!


...We all know something...but we will NEVER know everything :grinner:

 

Cryptlocker "Process" remover...will NOT delete Cryptolocker, only the processes...( a "safety precaution" I took for those who still want to "try" paying the ransom to get their files back. DON'T FORGET TO MONITOR YOUR TIME LEFT BEFORE PAYMENT! )

 

("KillCrypt" will automaticly open %appdatadir%...just guide this to Cryptolocker-Virus and double-click on it. Remember...if you "restart" your system, the processes will be back...use this only for emergencies if you want to create a quick document. While this processes is killed, your docs wont get infected, but WILL be encrypted (unusable) when you restart the PC/Laptop OR clicking on the Virus again!!!)

This is great :) Credit card companies should identify such fund transfers. It can stop such ransomware once and for all.

Really, Western Union, Moneypak, et al. should not be allowed to send money anonymously. Would stop a lot of scammers, or at least make them get more creative.

Wasn't referring to bitcoin mining. Just the fact you suggested they change tactics and they did.

Not sure what else this processing power could be used for, so is it really 'wasted'? It's a rhetorical question actually.

Folding, SETI, etc. Plenty of distributed computing projects out there that actually serve a scientific purpose and don't just waste resources.

Nice to see that you got all your money back as refund. I do not see any processing fees. But even that is great, only 4.95 :) :thumbsup:
