You are likely a victim of Ransomware. See info in post #108 for finding the ransom note and how to identify which Ransomware is responsible

for encrypting your files.

Any files that are encrypted with the newest Cerber variant will be renamed (encrypted) with 10 random characters and have a random 4 character extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename (i.e. 1xQHJgozZM.b71c) and leave files (ransom notes) named README.hta...see here.

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.

Thanks
