Got the thing on my pc. Bummer!!!!  Any help appreciated to remove. It seems I may have lost all files which really hurts but if so it is what it is. Just want to know how to go from here.  I am running Avira but have ability to use the full norton suite if better though my comcast account.

 

TIA  :thumbsup2:

Hello,

Please read the following for information on CTB-Locker.

The newest variants of CTB-Locker typically encrypt all data files and rename them as a file with a 6-7 length extension with random characters. The newer variants also do not always leave a ransom note if the malware fails to change the background, like it generally does. Compounding matters, the newer CTB-Locker infection has been seen in combination with KEYHolderTorrentLocker (fake Cryptolocker) or CryptoWall ransomware. Unfortunately, there is still no known method of decrypting your files without paying the ransom and with dual infections, that means paying both ransoms.

A repository of all current knowledge regarding this infection is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CTB Locker and Critroni Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

There is also an ongoing discussion in this topic: CTB Locker or DecryptAllFiles.txt Encrypting Ransomware Support & Discussion.

To avoid confusion I have asked a Moderator to close this topic.

Regards,
Alex
