CryptoTorLocker2015

CryptoTorLocker2015

CryptoTorLocker2015 is a malicious Windows infection that mainly affects TXT and image files. Once the threat corrupts your operating system, it immediately deletes files and creates mere imitations of them. The clandestine cryptolocker also drops the “HOW TO DECRYPT FILES.txt” file in every directory. When you open this file, you find a ransom message urging you to pay 100EUR/100USD to have the corrupted files decrypted. As mentioned before, CryptoTorLocker2015 deletes files, and so it is highly unlikely that anyone or anything will be able to restore them for you. Unfortunately, if the infection has managed to slither in, it is most likely that your personal files are lost. Of course, this does not mean that there is nothing you can do. You need to remove CryptoTorLocker2015 before the threat manages to corrupt more files or employ your operating system for other dangerous activity. Read more »
