My mum clicked an AGL email on Friday and got her computer infected with the Crypt0L0cker variant.


I have been lucky enough to find some pairs of files where I have both the original and encrypted versions of the same file (I have 4 pairs that I can send for analysis).


Can anyone help me decrypt the files based on that information?

No, they can't. Dr. Web (the AV company) currently has the only solution (outside of paying the ransom).


More information in the crypt0l0cker forum : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/574608/crypt0l0cker-support-topic/page-33


You should post in that topic in the future.

Updated policy from Dr.Web (11/25/15): Free file decryption assistance only for PCs protected by Dr.Web at the moment of infectionIf you're not a licensed user for a Dr.Web product you will have to pay for their services.

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 below 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.
