Today I received a note from a colleague of mine who accidentally clicked on a file which had been sent to him as an attachment to an email.
On his pc he has two fixed network connections to a NAS with loads of photos. You can already guess it: randsomeware problems. Also automatically on the NAS. More than 49,000 photos and many powerpoints and documents have become inaccessible. Many files have got the extension zzzzz and others have been changed into htm pages. What did we do? We re-imaged the pc, we immediately deleted the NAS from the network and switched it off. But unfortunately the damage had already been done. Does anyone have an idea as to how we could repair these files again? Is there already a tool for this?
A search on google hasn't had any results so far.
Thanks for thinking along with us. Greetings from Holland.
