I have open a mail Attachement (Excel File) and all of my data is encrypted. There is a file with the following massage:
You became victim of the GOLDENEYE RANSOMWARE!
The files on your computer have been encrypted with an military grade encryption algorithm. There is no way
to restore your data without a special key. You can purchase this key on the darknet page shown in step 2.
To purchase your key and restore your data, please follow these three easy steps:
 1. Download the Tor Browser at "https://www.torproject.org/". If you need help, please google for
    "access onion page".
 2. Visit one of the following pages with the Tor Browser:
 3. Enter your personal decryption code there:
I tried to decrypt my files with different Tools from the internet but it doesn`t work. Has somebody an idea??

Any files that are encrypted with Goldeneye Ransomware (rebranded Petya-Mischa combo) will have a random 8 character extension (i.e. .uDz2j8mv) appended to the end of the encrypted data filename and leave files (ransom) notes named YOUR_FILES_ARE_ENCRYPTED.TXT as explained here. Goldeneye also modifies the user's hard drive Master Boot Record MBR) with a custom boot loader.

Unfortunately, there is no known way at this time to decrypt files encrypted by Mischa or Goldeneye without paying the ransom.

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