Same situation here... I've been researching and it is the new version of locky. I did try to use the Karspersky decrypters but they don't work on this one. Do you guys have any other approach to solve this?

A repository of all current knowledge regarding Locky (Zepto) Ransomware is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this topic: Locky Ransomware Information, Help Guide, and FAQ.

Unfortunately, there is no known way to decrypt files encrypted by Locky (Zepto) without paying the ransom.

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.When or if a solution is found, that information will be provided in this support topic and you will receive notification if subscribed to it. In addition, a news article most likely will be posted on the BleepingComputer front page.

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.
