Computer infected with ransomware

Recommended Posts

I'm also having this issue. on May 16th, 2017 almost all the files on my computer (seems like all, but *.exe, files in c:\Users\joel\AppData ), were renamed to <some-number>.onion 

example of a "lnk" file renamed:

was "business - Shortcut.lnk" 

now: "business - Shortcut.lnk.id_3642933650_fgb45ft3pqamyji7.onion"

I ran malwarebytes, but it didn't detect it. 

I've done lots of google-searching, and I think it's called "Nemesis Ransomeware", "Cry128" or ".Onion Dharma Ransomware" (not sure which at this point).

I tried mcafee interceptor but it didn't detect anything (but perhaps it only detects new attacks, not infected files)....I'm in the process of running "AVG" right now to see if that can fix it... 

I just found a ransom-ware note, in c:\Users\joel\AppData\Roaming\Google\Chrome\UserData\-DECRYPT-MY-FILES.txt
