I am facing issues with encryption of all my data. Mainly 40 GB data out of which 30 GB is pics which are very dear to my heart.


Its cryptolocker ( which came when I was watching video on Youtube) and demands some 500$ in Bitcoins. I am not even familiar with what that is, the way it functions.

I request any expert who might help me those pics.


I wish you all - Merry Christmas.

The original CryptoLocker is dead since like 2013. You are dealing with an imposter one that is actually PClock. If you uploaded a ransom note to ID Ransomware, it will confirm based on the email address and filename of the ransom note.


There is no way to decrypt your files. You can see the article for more information. It's always worth trying ShadowExplorer and Recuva, but otherwise without backups, I'm afraid your data is gone.

There are ongoing discussions in these 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.
