Tool to find files encytpred by Malware & Delete them

One of my clients was hit by the CryptoWall virus earlier this month. Luckily they had a full backup they were able to restore (1.34TB worth!).

However, there is a NAS (which us using FreeNas OS) that IT were using for non business critical files. IT now want to run a tool that will find all the files that are sitting on this NAS box, that were encrypted by the malware and delete the files. They don't want to know which files were affected, just have them removed.

Any ideas folks?

The client has a tool that has removed the malware from the server.

What the client needs is a way to run through the NAS and have it delete any file that is no longer operational due to the malware. To do it manually will take way too long.
