Hi all.  Am new to this forum.  My server has recently been affected by Thor encryption virus.  Backup was not available.  Some ransom message also there but I haven't yet followed the instructions.  Anyone can help with a solution to recover files?

If the encrypted file extension is .thor, you have the latest variant of the Locky ransomware. It is not currently decryptable other than by paying the ransom.


More information in the Locky topic : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/605607/locky-ransomware-zepto-support-and-help-topic-help-instructionshtml/

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.
