Cryptolocker ransomware Virüsü removal, fix and decrypt tool.

Cryptolocker is a ransomware and like any other ransom it does the same to victims. It locks access to users files, sometimes even restrict access to the entire system and then forces victims to pay demand for giving users access back. CryptoLocker will encrypt victims personal data of value using RSA-2048 encryption algorithm. Ransomware is a type of malware created by cyber criminals to generate revenue. Malware (malicious software) gets to victims as a trojan towards well known scam emails, poisonous websites and freeware installation (bundled). Once the virus gets into users computer the process of encrypting will begin. Since this process takes time and resources victims may witness poor pc performance, freezing and more weird behavior. After process is completed the virus hides itself and informs victims with a message telling them that all data has been entrapped. Users will need to buy a key in order to recover access back. Cryptolocker will also save itself to the root of the %AppData% or %LocalAppData% folder.

With the rise of technology’s in the 21st century, opportunities are in favor of cyber criminals. Now that bitcoin is getting more popular we also face a threat. Anything that can leave traces of exposing cyber criminals is eliminated by bitcoin untraceable transactions. The demanded fee will be from 20$ to over 500$, 600$ in bitcoin value and now rising. If victims are not familiar with this system, thing may look even more complicated and puts a high stress level. Ransomware will aslo limit your time of payment. You have to follow the rules provided by the ransomware message of what to do and how to pay.

After payment is completed supposedly ransomware will recover all data back and the virus will be removed. However there is no guarantee if the scammers will recover data or give you access back. In case you try to enter random or wrong key cryptoLocker will twice reduce the time limit which is usually 96 to 72 hours.

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.
