The manager has a virus on an external hd
It’s basically locked all his office files and changed the name to locked.filename.doc.random
I need to get these documents back so he can open the file. The virus is one where if you have the virus and try and open the locked document you get a police popup saying ‘pay some money and open then’ I don’t know exactly, as the virus was on the laptop he had, which he no longer has, he just had the external hd with the locked files.
Anyway I found Kaspersky have a bit of software that can unlock these encrypted files, but you need one original file and he doesn’t have any originals.
Does anybody have any ideas , I've attatched a screenshot showing the new file extensions attatched to the document.
