Hi All -

 

The infection was on another drive on an old PC and was removed before the old PC went to PC heaven, Info as shown.

 

"File is encrypted

This file can be decrypted using the program DirtyDecrypt.exe

Press CTRL+ALT+D to run DirtyDecrypt.exe

If DirtyDecrypt.exe not opened сheck the paths:

C:\Program Files\Dirty\DirtyDecrypt.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Dirty\DirtyDecrypt.exe

C:\Users[YOUR USER]\AppData\Roaming\Dirty\DirtyDecrypt.exe

C:\Documents and Settings[YOUR USER]\Application Data\Dirty\DirtyDecrypt.exe

C:\Documents and Settings[YOUR USER]\Local Settings\Application Data\Dirty\DirtyDecrypt.exe"

 

I then bought a new HP PC running Win 8.1

 

I have now added as an external drive the drive from the old PC to the new PC so I could pick up old files needed 

 

How can I restore the original files where this virus is wrapped around  ? 

 

Have tried to delete the files from the external hard drive but I need revised permissions and despite all efforts to change them, no luck so I cant even delete them at the moment.

 

Whoever thought up this virus should be shot at dawn !! 

 

Any ideas as to recovery or deletion as they are taking a few MB up ??

 

Many thanks

Greetings Burman and :welcome: to BleepingComputer's Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum.

My name is Oh My! and I am here to help you! Now that we are "friends" please call me Gary.

If you would allow me to call you by your first name I would prefer to do that.

===================================================

Ground Rules:
  • First, I would like to inform you that most of us here at Bleeping Computer offer our expert assistance out of the goodness of our hearts. Please try to match our commitment to you with your patience toward us. If this was easy we would never have met. :)
  • Please do not run any tools or take any steps other than those I will provide for you while we work on your computer together. I need to be certain about the state of your computer in order to provide appropriate and effective steps for you to take. Most often "well intentioned" (and usually panic driven!) independent efforts can make things much worse for both of us. If at any point you would prefer to take your own steps please let me know, I will not be offended. I would be happy to focus on the many others who are waiting in line for assistance.
  • Please perform all steps in the order they are listed in each set of instructions. Some steps may be a bit complicated. If things are not clear, be sure to stop and let me know. We need to work on this together with confidence.
  • Please copy and paste all logs into your post unless directed otherwise. Please do not re-run any programs I suggest. If you encounter problems simply stop and tell me.
  • When you post your reply, use the Replytopic.jpg button instead.
  • In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see the Followtopic.jpg button. Click on this then choose Immediate E-Mail notification and then Proceed and you will be sent an email once I have posted a response.
  • If you do not reply to your topic after 5 days we assume it has been abandoned and I will close it.
  • When your computer is clean I will alert you of such. I will also provide for you detailed information about how you can combat future infections.
  • I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so.
  • Now let's get started :thumbup2:
===================================================

Now that I am assisting you, you can expect that I will be very responsive to your situation. If you are able, I would request you check this thread at least once per day so that we can try to resolve your issues effectively and efficiently. If you are going to be delayed please be considerate and post that information so that I know you are still with me. Unfortunately, there are many people waiting to be assisted and not enough of us at BleepingComputer to go around. I appreciate your understanding and diligence.

Thank you for your patience thus far.

There is no way to decrypt those files. If you would like I can try to assist you in wiping that drive which will remove ALL information on the drive. Please let me know.
Gary

Hi Pete.

Are your encrypted files spread throughout your hard drive or contained within one or more folders? We may be able to address the permissions issue.

Thanks,

Since I don't have the folder/file names I will let you fill in that information for the following program. See if this can help us.

===================================================

GrantPerms by Farbar

--------------------
  • Download Grantperms (32 bit systems) or Grantperms64 (64 bit systems) and save it to your desktop
  • Unzip the file and launch the program
  • Copy and paste the following in the edit box:

**Place folder/file path here**

  • Click Unlock. When it is done click OK
  • Click List Permissions and copy/paste the results of the Perms.txt document.
  • A copy of Perms.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
===================================================

Things I would like to see in your next reply. Please be sure to copy and paste any requested log information unless you are asked to attach it. :thumbsup2:
  • Perms.txt
  • Any success opening files?

I am consulting with the author of the tool to verify what I think that means. Please be patient, as soon as I hear back I will let you know.

You did not provide me with the folder or file path information.  You need to put that actual information where my instructions say: **Place folder/file path here**
