My FILES got encrypted, HELP me OUT.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok so i was downloading stuff and somehow i got myself into this mess. All of my files got encrypted, tried to clean my Laptop..... reinstall windows and etc.... No solution so far

 

Is there anything that can be done or i should accept the painful fact that my pictures and all sort of important files are gone.

Did you reinstall windows onto a different drive? I don't see how reinstalling windows shouldn't fix it.

Also, next time when you download shady stuff do so in a VM or, just don't download shady stuff.

Problem is its not just shady stuff. There are a lot of security flaws in the os, and sites that have been compromised that are normally trusted. Not doing shady things isn't a good defense here, you need backups.

1. Disconnect yourself from your home network and the internet. Now.

2. Do your files actually have that extension? If not, it's a bluff. Run a few different antivirus programs, make a backup of your drive just in case, then get on with your day.

3. If so, RIP. Your files are more or less gone forever. Image your drive and save that in physical form somewhere, just in case there's a fix.

4. DBAN the system's hard drive a few times, then install Windows again and start over. Be very, very careful with what you download and where you download it from. If you were downloading porn or pirated stuff, well, now you know that those sites are almost universally untrustworthy. If you weren't, keep a few basic rules in mind:

  • Only download programs from the publisher's site or a mirror provided by the publisher
  • Only download drivers and BIOS updates directly from the manufacturer
  • If you buy a crappy Chinese keyboard on Amazon and it directs you to install "management software", don't.
  • Check the URL before downloading anything. Make sure it's coming from, for example, linustechtips.com and not linustechtiips.com.

Or you never save anything you can not live without. That is what I do and still never had a problem with viruses or ransom trojans :)

You are right but I still think that these aren't all that easy to get nowadays at least I'd hope.

I have all my important stuff backed up though, just in case.

To be honest most pirate sites I know of are just as secure to download from as a Microsoft site.

 Got a backup? This is why you make backups.

 

If you don't have a backup, make a image of the drive, they may be a way to get past it, but your best hope is to pay then

Paying is not a solution... ain't gonna pay some Indian ugly mofo. 

 

Paying the pirates will encourage them to continue their evil deed, develop more ransomware even to infect your computer again. Suppose I send them money there is no guarantee that they will send you the decryption formula (if there is one)

Yea paying won't help the problem, but if you don't have backups and there isn't a easy way to decrypt that someone has found, your best way to get your data back is to pay them.

Have you confirmed that your files are affected? As said above, it may be just a hoax. Find and open a photo and open it with image viewer. If you can open the file then you may only have to fix all the file extensions.

Yes they are affected. Searching for .DATAWAIT decryption tool now.

Maybe try changing back the extension to whatever it's supposed to be.
