So now that it's out of the way, I paid the ransom. Yes, I did it. I'm evil, I'm perpetuating the terrible cause. I'm funding the bad guys. I'm angry about it, I'm disappointed in myself, but I needed these files and I did what I felt I had to do. Sorry! Feel free to flame me.
Having said that, let me say this. I paid and then the hackers (for lack of a better term) released to me a download link to download the decrypt.zip file. I downloaded it, and when I attempt to unzip the file the decrypt.exe file disappears. The only two files that remain are the public.key and the private.key. I can't get the decrypt program to run. Is there anyone that can help with this?
