Hi.  Any help is appreciated.  Both my Windows 7 PC and my NAS drive were infected with ransomware and my files have been converted to a .locked extension.

I only found one other report of this ransomware, so maybe it's new?


System Restore and Shadow Files have been deleted.

I tried some .locked decryption tools from emsisoft without luck.

I tried a deep scan recovery tool, no success.


Quarantined file:  Trojan:Win32/Fuerboos.C.cl


.locked file extension Ransom Note reads: What happened to my files ?

All of your important files were encrypted using a combination of RSA-2048 and AES-256.

What does this mean ?

This means that your files were modified in a way that makes working with them impossible, unless you have the keys to decrypt them.

Is it possible to recover my files ?

Yes, it possible to get your files back, you'll need a special program (decryptor) and the private key of the key pair used to encrypt them.

How can I get the decryptor and the private key ?

You can get both of them in our site below. The site is only available via the Tor Browser.

Instructions to install Tor Browser (recommended).

  1. Download the Tor Browser Bundle here: https://www.torproject.org.
  2. Execute the file you downloaded to extract the Tor Browser into a folder on your computer.
  3. Then simply open the folder and click on "Start Tor Browser".
  4. Copy and paste the onion address into the address bar:

It's not new and is known since October 2017.
Nothing changed.

Since the infection has been identified, rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if victims posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the below support topic discussion.To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
