Hi,

 

My company files were locked by a .WORK ransomware. Is there any known decryptor at the moment for decrypting this?

 

Our backup is not an option at the moment. Please help this is very time sensitive issue as our whole company is currently down because of this.

 

-thank you

Follow the instructions in the forum and submit an encrypted file and the ransom note to ID Ransomware. Without further info, I can only speculate it is probably CryptoMix, which is not decryptable.

That's just another CryptoMix variant.

Unfortunately, there is no known method at this time to decrypt files encrypted by newer CryptoMix variants without paying the ransom. If possible, your best option is to restore from backups, try file recovery software or backup/save your encrypted data as is and wait for a possible solution at a later time.

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 one of the above support topic discussions...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
