Well, my computer along with another coworker's got hit with the bastard lukitus virus yesterday. Of course it cleared all restore points, shadow copies, everything and there is no way of getting my files I guess. Has there been a decryption tool for this yet? I do have some healthy files and encrypted files that are the same if it's any help to anyone. I refuse to pay $2000 to @$$hats who just sit around to screw with people. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Locky ransomware is unfortunately not decryptable. You can only wait for the possibility of the encryption keys being released or seized, keeping those files in a backup.


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.

When or if a solution is found, that information will be provided in this support topic and you will receive notification if subscribed to it. In addition, a news article most likely will be posted on the BleepingComputer front page.

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.
