New KEYHolder ransomware brought to you by the same developers of CryptorBit
KeyHolder Ransomware, is this new?

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic: KEYHolder Support and Discussion Topic.

The best solution for encrypted data is to restore from backups. KEYHolder typically deletes all Shadow Volume Copies so that you cannot restore your files via System Restore or using a program like Shadow Explorer...but it never hurts to try especially if you are using Windows XP or Vista. At this time there is no fix tool. The only other alternative is to save your data as is and wait for possible updates.

Rather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any questions, comments or requests for assistance in that topic discussion.
