Cryptolocker malware infection (need help getting data)
Posted on 2013-10-09
I have a laptop that was infected with the Cryptoware Virus/Ransomware. The infection was removed and now the personal data that is currently on the Hard drive is encrypted. I have tried a system restore to see if i can get it to show back up and maybe pay the $300 is was requesting and get the Private RSA 2048 key to unlock the personal files but I have had no success with that. Is there a utility or a way to decrypt or fix the issue so that I can view and open my data like normal. Apparently this Virus is very new and I need any insight or thoughts as to how I can recover the data that was locked by this scary piece of malware. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
