    Hello Experts

    I got an Email from an unknown source with an attachment and as I open the attachment, all data is encrypted & all files are replaced with alphanumeric name with .zepto extension. Attachment was in javascript with .js extension. I tried to research on the internet but no success, it's asking me to pay if I want to decrypt my data. Please help me with this Ransom ware. So far I have used shadow explorer to export the previous version of files, but it's only working on C drive where windows is installed, It's not exporting the files from the other drives.


    Thanks in advance

    There are 2 kinds of people. Those who backup regularly and those who already backup regularly.

    Considering that you are okay with opening javascript attachments (perfect idea indeed!), you should really do yourself a favor and backup quite often once you recover frm this.
