Locky virus has my pc..:(


Recommended Posts


I hope this is in the right forum...;)

Unfortunately I opened an email on my web mail.

It was a email with a bogus customer complaint.

As I was unaware it just worked in the background encrypting all my files which includes all excell, .txt, etc etc.

I have webroot business on this machine which seems to have missed this attack.

Unfortunately I hadn't loaded my paid version of Malwarebytes on this rig..:(

So now the machine is off and disconnected from the net.

I have read many how too's in the removal process of the latest Locky virus .shi t. but would really like you advise on what you would consider to be my next step.

Cheers Dave. :(

Hello @Nukeoz and :welcome:

At this time I'm not aware of any means to decrypt the data encrypted by Locky. We can look at cleaning the computer if you like, but I'd recommend Fdisk, Format, and reinstall Windows if you're able to. Let me know what you like to do though and if wanted we can clean the computer.
