I appreciate all of the helpful information about Crypto Wall 2.0 but I could not find any answers or direction of what to do after the ransom is paid other then you can get your files back.


I recently paid the ransom on the TOR network today and was sent a download link that contained a zip file with three files in it.

The site that I paid the ransom to stated "Turn off your anti-virus and run decryption tool".

Not being so trusting I placed the file onto a Key Fob and transferred it to a remote drive where some encrypted files were. Norton End Point immediately detected and stopped TrojanAsprox.B contained on that key fob.


I wrote back to the ransom folks again but they just keep telling me to turn off my anti-virus and run the decryption tool.


By the way the three files were: decrypt, private.key and public.key


Looking for professional advise before proceeding.  Has anyone gone through this process and been successful?

Since I have already instructed you where to post for assistance, I am closing this topic to avoid confusion.

Good luck.
