After i have opend a mail from a transport company, containing a word document, a lot of my files have the extension MK-1 @ZL@DAVLf@ZL@ .pdf.zyklon. I cannot open these files.
In a lot of the directories containing these files there is a document explaining that i have to pay 250,00 to make the files available again.

I do not want to pay criminals.

With a program called Shadow explorer i was able to rescue 15.000 files from the more than 90.00 files.

Also backups are infected. I assumed that saving a backup in the cloud was enough, but also these are infected.

Is there sombody who knows if somthing can be done resolving this.
If more information is needed please let me know.

I am new in this forum so i hope i have posted this now in the correct environment..

Again, 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 Zyklon Locker (GNL) Help Topic. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
