Please help


All the files has been encrypted and another file has been created with the email address and id in the name. for example file "2015 - 2016 Marketing Plan.pdf" has another file underneath it with the name "2015 - 2016 Marketing Plan.pdf.id-8096448188276079-johnycryptor@aol.com"


How do I get the files back?


No antivirus is detecting anything

Similar report posted in this topic..."obamausa7@aol.com" Virus on my system

It is believed these infections are part of a ransomware kit that different affiliates utilize with their own payment email addresses which explains all the "@" ransomwares which have been reported.

Kaspersky Lab has a utility called RakhniDecryptor that is able to brute force the decryption key for some of these <filename>.<extension>."@" and <filename>.<extension>.id-random number_"@"variants but not all of them. Instructions for using RakhniDecryptor can be found here.

Kaspersky Lab also has a RannohDecryptor utility for decrypting some other types of these <filename>"@".<random characters> and locked-<filename>.random letters."@" variants.

There are going discussions in these related topics where you can ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. To avoid unnecessary confusion...this topic is closed.
