What is the 'weird' extension? Is it the same for all encrypted files? Upload an encrypted file to Sendspace (or the equivalent) and include a link to it in your next post, so the analysts at BC can have a look at it.

It was locked because that variant has already been reported and the victim was referred to the below topic where others have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.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 the above topic discussion. To avoid unnecessary confusion...this topic is closed.

Thanks
