Hello,

 

I am having the following problem when I try to open my Microsot Excel:

 

A script pops up on my computer, takes over my Excel and shows me a 1 page message with the following as the first 2 lines:

 

"All of your files were protected by a strong encryption with RSA-2048.                                  

More information about the encryption keys using RSA-2048 can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA_(cryptosystem)"

 

 

What should I do??

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
