One of my clients suffered a Cryptowall virus last night. It ran on a pc and encrypted all the files on the share drive. I have a backup, but this happened before the backup ran last night, so the entire company would be out a day’s work.. not the end of the world, but not good.
Does anyone have any experience with this virus and getting the files unencrypted? Not too excited in paying a random.. not due to the cost but due to the overall picture of if they will even send the key and if the files will be damaged.
I found this site via usa today, can it hurt to run the decrypt? If the business owner opts to pay the ransom, don’t want to damage anything:

Any help would be great..
Thank you in advance..
