I have got the DECRYPT Instruction Virus on my network last week. I have removed the virus but all my files are now encrypted and I can not get to them. Has anyone and process as to how to decrypt these files. Any help would be great. The backups also get infected. They are looking for us to pay $500 to decrypt these files
Thank you

    Cryptolocker "users" might be in luck, as two firms accidentally came upon a database where they could extract some keys. I just hope yours is there too. Otherwise, you're out of luck, as these are nasty little buggers.

    It is Cryptowall virus so I don't think this will work as it is not a Cryptolocker

    sorry mate, this is a malware not a virus.
    how much time has passed since the infection?
    do you have  Shadow Copies  ON? try recovering from shadow copies..

    Paying most likely will not get you the files back - I tried with a client they took the money and gone!
