I have these 4 files in a lot of the folders on my server:

 

HELP_DYCRYPT.HTML, .txt, PNG and HELP_DYCRYPT and I cannot open files such as .DOC, XLXS, etc.

 

But I have scanned with 2 malware programs and neither has found anything?  Malwearbytes and HitManPro

 

I have a backup ready to resote with, but I want to make sure that the virus is off of my computer first.  How can I know for sure that it has been cleaned?

 

Thanks,  David

- CryptoWall 3.0 leaves files (ransom notes) named:
HELP_DECRYPT.TXT
HELP_DECRYPT.HTML
HELP_DECRYPT.URL
HELP_DECRYPT.PNG

A repository of all current knowledge regarding CryptoWall, CryptoWall 2.0 & CryptoWall 3.0 is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this topic: CryptoWall and DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

There are also ongoing discussions in these topics: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 one of those topic discussions. 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
