Hello,

 

I have been infected by the Cryptolocker virus. Most of the files have been encrypted. I have a bakcup of most of the data but not of some importants files. I've looking for solutions but without sucess.

 

The message sent by the virus says that the files had been encrypted by the Crypt0L0cker virus and the only way to decrypt is by payaing in bitcoins throught any of this web sites:

 

I've looked to similar topics already posted on this forum and tried the solutions proposed but  without sucess. The variant of the virus shows a similar screen as this:

Information about Crypt0L0cker can be found here: TorrentLocker changes it's name to Crypt0L0cker

Crypt0L0cker 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 in case the infection did not do what it was supposed to do since it is not uncommon for these infections to sometimes fail to properly delete Shadow Volume Copies since it is not uncommon for these infections to sometimes fail to properly delete Shadow Volume Copies.

At this time there is no fix tool and no known way to decrypt your files. The best solution for dealing with encrypted data is to restore from backups or attempt to use file recovery software such as R-Studio or Photorec to recover some of your original files. The only other alternative is to save your data as is and wait for possible updates...meaning, what seems like an impossibility at the moment (decryption of your data) there is always hope someday there may be a breakthrough or possible solution so save the encrypted data and wait until that time.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic: Crypt0L0cker Ransomware Support & Discussion

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 support topic discussion. Doing that will also ensure you receive proper assistance from our crypto malware experts since they may not see this thread. To avoid unnecessary confusion...this topic is closed.

Thanks
