Hello!

New user here, and I apologize if this is not the right place to post this, but a friend of mine just got attacked by some ransomware, which encrypts and rename files with the ".FIXIX" extension.

I tried to identify it, but failed. 

This guy decided to pay the ransom and get his files back, so I'm posting the ransom note, as well as a sample encrypted file and the decryptor he was sent by the attacker, hoping it might help other people, or security software developers.

The files can be found in the following link:

I'm afraid your friend acted in haste. It is Amnesia, and it is decryptable for free...

There is an 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.

Thanks
