Hello The Feet (nice to see you walking in) -
I think that it is safe to say that all of those who have been infected and posted their own information in the main topic here, can relate the start of the infection to an attachment that came with an email.
The problem was not your regular "just a minor infection" or even a request from an African person offering you millions of dollars. This carried an infection that inserted the Encrypting Code into your computer, and even after fairly rapid removal of the "regular infection", the encryption code continued on to complete its work -
One of the better working manuals (still being developed) is in the program guide and FAQ linked below.
Usually the email attachment was simple and often related to the small businesses that opened them as a matter of regular business operations. At times there were 5 or 10 or 20 or more units encrypted in the one hit, so the company was often halted in normal operations. In the old days, it would be like the book-keeper taking all current trading details. This may include basic price lists, current accounts, who owes money and who has paid, not to mention wages and many other details.
You can only imagine a small legal, building supplies, or general retail firm with 10 interlocked server computers that had been infected, and all files were Encrypted or basically locked, so that all current and past records could not be accessed.
Thank You -
