One of our clients recently got hit with this, and I thought I'd share what we know.

Unfortunately they don't rotate their backups and all data was lost as a result.
Here's the password we were given, I'm fairly certain he uses the same one throughout: =-0987654321!@#$%^&*()_++_)(*&^%$#@!
Hopefully this helps somebody.
Forgot to mention some important details. First off, it was just an image/text file with instructions that opened automatically. The drives were actually encrypted using bitlocker, set to require a password to unlock. Due to the fact they do not have an active directory that logs recovery keys for bitlocker there was no way to unlock the drive. The data essentially shut the business down until it was encrypted, as it was critical.
