Did you submit any samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware for assistance with identification and confirmation?

Update 1/11/15:: Please see this post for updated information on identifying the version you are encrypted with and how to use's Fabian Wosar's decryption tool.

Unfortunately, newer PClock variants are not decryptable and there is no longer any way to provide decryption without paying the ransom. The Emsisoft Decrypter created for earlier PClock variants will not work...Fabian explains why in Post #987.

There is ongoing discussion in this topic where victims 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.
