hey /g/, my system has just infected by a ransomware. system recovery or anything similar to it just didn't work to get rid of it. all my personal files are encrypted.

what to do before installing gentoo? is there a way to save at least a little of them?
>>
>>51614309
No. Install Gentoo.
>>
Nuke the ransomware from your system, delete the encrypted files and restore them from backups.

You don't have backups? Well then, this will be a lesson for you about the importance of backups. Too bad you had to learn it this way.
>>
>>51614309
you know that little thing in the corner that tells you to make backups? betcha wish you had listened to it sooner.
>>
>>51614309
best option:

Right click C:\, properties, previous versions, restore from BEFORE that file was created.

Yerfukt anyway, but that'll at least unfuck some things.
>>
>>51614309
kek, who doesn't use cloud storage to prevent this kind of shit these days

>>51614403
had backups in my other partition in case I'd lose them but never thought I'd get such virus that corrupts all my files. it even ruins the usb stick when I wanna make a bootable linux.
>>
>>51614419
It would just upload to the cloud and encrypt your files there too, tard.
>>
>>51614457
You should have used that USB stick for backups.

Too late now. Either pay up, or say goodbye to your stuff.

Next time, don't click and run everything you come across. Block ads and content you don't need. Be a little proactive when it comes to security.
>>
>>51614419
If it rains it'll fall out of the cloud dumbass.
>>
I can't believe stuff like this actually happens. What sketchy site were you visiting so that you'd catch this shit?
>>
>>51614561
>having it set to sync automatically
>using desktop client
lmao dude
>>
just re-install from your backup DVD's
>>
how does one get infected with this shit ?
>>
>>51614598
Go on OP, tell us what dumb shit you did to get this on your computer.
Don't pretend you don't know how it got there, you're anonymous here just tell the truth.
>>
You need to figure out exactly which version you got infected with. Some of them were implemented poorly and people have figured out how to decrypt them without paying for the key.

If you got one of the properly implemented ones, you are fucked.

Connect to the university wifi. Disconnect immediately. ???. INFECTED!

Quick, blame it on your brother, his vidya games are probably full of viruses. Just convince your mother that music can't contain a virus.
>>
>>51614561
Um, no it wouldn't. Have you ever even used cloud backup before?

>asking for bitcoins and not actual money

These hackers are stupid. Bitcoin is fucking worthless now.

But not as stupid as you. What gut-wrenching fetish porn site were you browsing to even get that shit on your PC?
>>
>>51614457

>not making a liveCD on another computer and booting from it

I bet the files arent even actually encrypted.

BTC is up around $400 per coin now and the price they indicate is automatically scaled to a dollar amount.

Am I reading this right? Why would you have backups on the same drive?

how many people on /g/ are infected with this right now?
>>
>>51615874
No he's right... a lot of the time they just fake it.

There was a thread about this last night. Almost every op ignores the question "how did you get it"
>>
How did you get infected with shit like that?

Mother fucking this. Everytime there's a ransomware thread and when they do anwser its always the stupidest shit you've ever read.
>"Some random annoying window kept popping up so I finally said yes"

I'm starting to think people who make ransomware threads don't even browse /g/ or regularly.
>>
I always wonder how accepting payments in buttcoin works out for them.

After all the type of people getting infected by this probably do not know what bitcoins are and are not able to follow technical instructions on how to obtain them like OP posted.
>>
>>51616511
there are probably old people who got it and just never used the computer again
they put it in a cupboard with a cloth over it or something
>>
>>51615678
don't trigger me anon

It doesnt matter, all it takes is 1 retard to do it and they are making money from it.

Did you not fucking read the rules? /g/ is not tech support.

I make fuckloads of money trading eth daily. It takes me 5 minutes a day to set my position, and within a week I close for anywhere between 10% and 50% profit. Eth is trivial to read and always brings massive profit.

Other coins and systems will be made, just make sure not to miss the boat next time.
