Apparently developers made a few changes since the previous January variant. The new HDD Cryptor Ransomware comes with variant a new demand of 700 USD and a bigger and better explained ransom note.

Here are our standard payment instructions.
Our bitcoin wallet address is (removed)
$700 is approx. 1.0520 BTC according to current exchange rate.
In case you have no prior experience with Bitcoin (and can't find
someone who has - which is the best option) here's a summary on
different ways to buy bitcoin:
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Buying_Bitcoins_%28the_newbie_version%29
For example, you can buy bitcoins on coinbase.com (using your bank
account), localbitcoins.com (multiple payment methods, depending on
vendor), bitquick.co (cash deposit in local bank, seems to work pretty
fast but we have no personal experience with them) or virwox.com (they
accept cards and paypal, and on virwox.info you can find a tutorial on
buying bitcoins there).
Please note that for security reasons some websites will delay payment
for up to 48 hours (that's true for purchasing on virwox with paypal) so
please pay attention to terms of service. We won't be able to confirm
your transaction and send you the password during that delay period.
In our experience your best chance to make the transfer quickly is
to find an online seller with good reviews on localbitcoins.com. If you
use cash deposit to pay that seller your transaction should only take a
few hours. Also vendors can be really helpful on that website.
Alternatively you can look up bitcoin ATMs in your area - their fee is
usually a bit higher but that's one of the fastest ways to buy bitcoins.
For amounts up to $300 you can use circle.com - it allows to send money
from credit and debit cards almost instantly. You can also break up
bigger amounts and make several payments from different accounts if you
find it convenient.
After you purchase $700 worth of bitcoins you can just send them to our
bitcoin wallet directly from the website you've chosen - this way you
won't have to install bitcoin software, manage your own wallet etc. If
you find it difficult to transfer the indicated amount in a single
transaction you can break up the sum and make several transactions to
the same bitcoin address (possibly using different methods of purchasing
bitcoins).
After that we'll send you the password that'll let you boot Windows and
further instruction on permanently decrypting hard drives. We'll also
tell how we got in so you can fix it and prevent future incidents.

How to protect against ransomware is most frequently asked questions in the past year. Since ransomware has become the biggest threat among all viruses, people ask themselves if there’s a way to protect from such. It is already too late if you once suffered ransom attack and file has been locked. For some there is a solution but for others disappointment. Either way popularity of ransomware rises and new development are presented every day.

What can we do against the battle with ransomware?

  • If you are already infected do not pay the ransom! Remove the virus and look for other solutions rather than paying. Paying the ransom may be your only option if you have really valuable data. However we do not recommend doing this because you will support the work of criminals. The risk of losing money and still stuck with encrypted files since there is no guarantee in any way that you will recover what one is lost.
  • Security researcher are always working on recovery solutions. Not all ransomware are professionally developed and being cracked, but some are so good developed that there is no current way to be beaten at the current date. One of the solutions is system restore.
  • Best solution is if you have a backup, wipe your hard drive and perform system restore. If not, backup your data frequently. Store backup data in any removable storage device or use any online backup services.
  • Protect your computer with antivirus, internet security, anti-malware software or new developed applications like anti-ransomware. Highly recommended is to keep it up to date and use the paid surveys. We do not recommend free applications.

Now that you have been infected you have a few options:

Many suggest that you simply pay and hope that you will get all off your data back. However in this case you risk losing money and still being stuck with crypted files. We do not recommend this way simply because you will support the work of hackers and the more money thay get the stronger they will become.

The best option for you is if you have a backup, wipe your hard drive and perform system restore.
