Hi. As of yesterday, I found out I have been infected with some kind of ransomware. I spent all night trying to find a solution but nothing bare fruit... I discovered Fireeye and Fox-It's joint solution "decryptolocker" but mine seems to be a newer version, so that site says "The file does not seem to be infected by CryptoLocker. Please submit a CryptoLocker infected file."


My important files and decade old important photos have rendered useless and it says I have 59 hours to pay their ransom. Here is a screenshot of the program. I didn't come across this one on the internet. Is this a new one or is there any way I can obtain a decryption key?

It says my files has been encrypted with a 2048-bit RSA key.

Hi xyttra,
You have another topic at the BleepingComputer forum here and the experts are looking into it, so it's better to wait for a response from them.
