OK so i cannot open some of my pic files because they are encrypted.
there is a text file in the pic folder with instructions on how to decrypt them
but i suspect that it is some sort of scam.
 
 
 
This is what the text file has 
 
 
What happened to your files ?
All of your files were protected by a strong encryption with RSA-2048 using CryptoWall 3.0.
More information about the encryption keys using RSA-2048 can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA_(cryptosystem)
 
 
What does this mean ?
This means that the structure and data within your files have been irrevocably changed, you will not be able to work with them, read them or see them,
it is the same thing as losing them forever, but with our help, you can restore them.
 
 
How did this happen ?
Especially for you, on our server was generated the secret key pair RSA-2048 - public and private.
All your files were encrypted with the public key, which has been transferred to your computer via the Internet.
Decrypting of your files is only possible with the help of the private key and decrypt program, which is on our secret server.
 
 
What do I do ?
Alas, if you do not take the necessary measures for the specified time then the conditions for obtaining the private key will be changed.
If you really value your data, then we suggest you do not waste valuable time searching for other solutions because they do not exist.
 
 
For more specific instructions, please visit your personal home page, there are a few different addresses pointing to your page below:
1.http://paytoc4gtpn5czl2.optionstopaytos.com/16cs9cp
2.http://paytoc4gtpn5czl2.cheetosnotburitos.com/16cs9cp
3.http://paytoc4gtpn5czl2.optionsketchupay.com/16cs9cp
4.http://paytoc4gtpn5czl2.solutionsaccountor.com/16cs9cp
 
If for some reasons the addresses are not available, follow these steps:
1.Download and install tor-browser: http://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en 
2.After a successful installation, run the browser and wait for initialization.
3.Type in the address bar: paytoc4gtpn5czl2.onion/16cs9cp
4.Follow the instructions on the site.
 
 
IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
Your personal page: http://paytoc4gtpn5czl2.optionstopaytos.com/16cs9cp
Your personal page (using TOR): paytoc4gtpn5czl2.onion/16cs9cp
Your personal identification number (if you open the site (or TOR 's) directly): 16cs9cp
 
 
 
 
I am lost and unsure how to proceed can any one help

Are there any file extensions appended to your files...such as .ecc, .ezz, .exx, .zzz, .xyz, .aaa, .abc, .ccc, .vvv, .encrypted, .locked, .crypto, _crypt, .crinf, .XRNT, .XTBL, .crypt, .pzdc, .good, .LOL!, .OMG!, .RDM, .RRK, .encryptedRSA, .EnCiPhErEd, .0x0, .bleep, .1999, .vault, .HA3, .toxcrypt, .CTBL, .CTB2, or 6-7 length extension consisting of random characters?

Is there any notice (message) which says something like..."Your files are locked and encrypted with a unique RSA-1024 key!"?

Did you find any ransom note? These infections are created to alert victims that their data has been encrypted and demand a ransom payment. Check your documents folder for an image the malware typically uses for the background note. Check the C:\ProgramData (or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data) for a randomly named .html, .txt, .png, .bmp, .url file.

These are some examples:
HELP_DECRYPT.TXT, HELP_YOUR_FILES.TXT, HELP_TO_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES.txt
HELP_RESTORE_FILES.txt, HELP_TO_SAVE_FILES.txt, RECOVERY_KEY.txt, DecryptAllFiles.txt
DECRYPT_INSTRUCTIONS.TXT, INSTRUCCIONES_DESCIFRADO.TXT, How_To_Recover_Files.txt
DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.TXT, HOW_TO_DECRYPT_FILES.TXT, ReadDecryptFilesHere.txt, About_Files.txt, 
FILESAREGONE.TXT, IAMREADYTOPAY.TXT, HELLOTHERE.TXT, READTHISNOW!!!.TXT, SECRETIDHERE.KEY
IHAVEYOURSECRET.KEY, SECRET.KEY, Help_Decrypt.txt, HELP_DECYPRT_YOUR_FILES.HTML
YOUR_FILES.HTML, DecryptAllFiles_<user name>.txt, encryptor_raas_readme_liesmich.txt
DecryptAllFiles_.txt, RECOVERY_FILES.txt, help_decrypt_your_files.html, YOUR_FILES.url
Howto_RESTORE_FILES_.txt, RECOVERY_FILE.TXT, RECOVERY_FILE_.txt, restore_files_.txt
howto_recover_file_.txt, how_recover+****.txt, ,_how_recover_.txt, recover_file_*****.txt

Note: The (*) represents random characters which some ransom notes names may include.
Once we have identified which particular ransomware you are dealing with, I can direct you to the appropriate discussion topic for further assistance.

Just my two cents, the contents appears to hint that it is CW3.0.

All of your files were protected by a strong encryption with RSA-2048 using CryptoWall 3.0.

Some ransomware variants like TeslaCrypt are disguised as CryptoWall so you can't always go by what the ransome note tells you.

There are several variants of Cryptowall. CryptoWall 3.0 leaves files (ransom notes) named HELP_DECRYPT.TXT, HELP_DECRYPT.HTML, and HELP_DECRYPT.PNG.

A repository of all current knowledge regarding CryptoWall, CryptoWall 2.0, CryptoWall 3.0 & CryptoWall 4.0 is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this topic: CryptoWall and DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

Unfortunately at this time there is no fix tool and decryption of CryptoWall files...is impossible since there is no way to retrieve the private key that can be used to decrypt your files without paying the ransom. For a more detailed explanation, read this reply by Nathan (DecrypterFixer).

As with most ransomware infections...the best solution for dealing with encrypted data is to restore from backups. If that is not a viable option, the only other alternative is to save your data as is and wait for a possible breakthrough...meaning, what seems like an impossibility at the moment (decryption of your data), there is always hope someday there may be a possible solution so save the encrypted data and wait until that time.

There are ongoing discussions in these topics where you can ask questions and seek further assistance.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 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
