My file was crypted by kangaroo on 12 November 2016 leave me no choice I have contacted them.

After negotiation, I have paid the ransom. Just within a few days, I managed to decrypt all my files back.

Even though I had read all the feedback from the previous victims which they had paid but they did not managed to decrypt their file, I put a strong believe which negotiation can resolve.  After I paid the ransom amount as they asked ,I managed to get the lock screen password,decryption software and the active key from them. I managed to decrypt all my files back.


Lots of people paying the ransom to resolve their crisis and definitely I am one of it.

Of course, if you had been smart, and had properly backed up your data, you (and others) wouldn't have had to pay the ransom. You shouldn't have to pay for something that's already yours.

We are drowning in information - and starving for wisdom.

Glad to hear you were successful with decrypting your files.

Kangaroo ransomware is a variant of Apocalypse.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can post comments. 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.
