The following message is spammed within most of my folders along with the zipped files. I have scanned, rescanned and nothing have serched everywhere for a solution to this.

!!!_AUTO_ZIP_REPORT_!!! (text file name)


Dear Internet User,
Unfortunately Your computer was infected by virus and some of your
files (text files, images, databases, office documents and others)
might be now zipped with password. To recover your important files
you will need to get password to unzip your information.
I would like to mention that any attempts to recover password by
bruteforce will be unsuccessfull and time loss only...

To recieve instructions who to recover your information please use following information:

E-Mail: XXXXXXXX@gmail.com (email address removed by wgincl security reasons)
Subject: MyId-ndx0PdVdNg


files saved as <original name>.jpg_CRYPT_

.jpg is generic as it has zipped many files

** Update, I have been able to format C: and reinstall windows, also the virus itself was removed, however I hope there is still away to recover files that have already been zipped and passworded...

Nope... not now. The virus stores the zips on the C: drive... so formatting the drive deleted the zips as well.

Ok... was a longshot... those were the only passwords associated with ransomware that I could find through Google.

Don't think there is much I can do for you... sorry.
