So my mother in law called me over today to look at her computer. The Desktop shows the "Your personal files are encrypted by CTB-Locker". Sne told me that she can still browse the internet but she cannot open any files that are stored locally. She told me that this started appearing around January 24th and checking the properties of the DecryptAllFiles.BMP image in the documents folder confirms 1/24/15 as the date. I have heard really bad things about crypto-locker ransom ware but have no personal experience with this. Is there a way to fix this and get her files back or is she hosed?

This is why I preach so much for people to back up there important docs and pics, it always seems to fall on deaf ears until there a victim

 

We can run Malwarebytes to remove it but i am afraid the files are gone unless she has backed them up to a thumb drive or external hard drive
