I have been a very happy user of Bleepingcomputer (your site has helped me, my family and friends out more times than I can count, thank you!). --- I apparently just became infected with something called: Win32/Filecoder.cr trojan ... And now my files (like .pdf, .doc, etc) have been encrypted to where I am unable to open them. I have received a pop up message and now have .txt messages in folders stating that my files have been encrypted with CryptoDefense using a unique key RSA-2048 ... I need to obtain the private key..blah, blah, blah.
My antivirus prog is AVG and it noticed / caught malware called Exploit.drop.gs ... but apparently it was too late, b/c I ran antimalwarebytes and it found Win32/Filecoder.cr trojan ... and then ran ESET free online scanner and it found 600+ threats (all being this trojan in different folders)...It removed them, then they came right back. My files are completely encrypted.
Please advise as to the next appropriate steps. Thanks in advance!
