I am trying to obtain information on a Ransomware infection that hit my computer.  The malware came in an email attachment labeled Invoice_ID_0006802.zip. A large amount of documents on my computer have been "encrypted" and the extension .crypted added to the filename.  A notepad text file DECRYPT.txt was left put on my desktop containing this message below. (I added the italics).  I can't find much information online about this malware and would appreciate any help or advice.


All your documents, photos, databases and other important personal files
were encrypted using strong RSA-1024 algorithm with a unique key.
To restore your files you have to pay 0.31324 BTC (bitcoins).
Please follow this manual:
1. Create Bitcoin wallet here:
2. Buy 0.31324 BTC with cash, using search here:
3. Send 0.31324 BTC to this Bitcoin address:
4. Open one of the following links in your browser to download decryptor:
5. Run decryptor to restore your files.
      - If you do not pay in 3 days YOU LOOSE ALL YOUR FILES.
      - Nobody can help you except us.
      - It`s useless to reinstall Windows, update antivirus software, etc.
      - Your files can be decrypted only after you make payment.
      - You can find this manual on your desktop (DECRYPT.txt).

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic 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 that 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.
