A computer has been attacked by pulpy@protonmail.ch. - here is the message that is left in every folder:


Hi all your files are encrypted, to decrypt all your files write to us on the mail: pulpy@protonmail.ch


All files that are not i use have been encrypted and given the extentsion .aes. ID Ransomware refers to 2 results, Globe and Vortex and neither have helped me decrypt.


Any assistance would be appreciated..

You have already posted the same here.

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

To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
