Read about a way to get key but the site decryptcryptolocker.com is no longer up?
How can I get key and the app to decrypt?

The FireEye/Fox-IT Decryptolocker website (decryptcryptolocker.com) posted this comment shortly before closing.

In August 2014, we launched our website to help the victims of the CryptoLocker malware. We are happy to have helped more than five thousand individuals and small businesses. CryptoLocker, unfortunately, has inspired criminals all over the world. We have seen more than 20 copycat ransomware attacks since the original CryptoLocker, some of which use the same name, modus operandi and layout as the original CryptoLocker. We believe that our Decryptolocker site has served its purpose, and we have decommissioned it given that the threat landscape has evolved.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic 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.
