|Recently my personal computer has been infected with what appears to be a relatively new virus. |
The computer boots to a DOS screen that says
Your PC is blocked.
All the hard drives were encrypted.
Browse www. safe-data. ru to get an access to your system and files.
Any attempt to restore the drives using other way will lead to inevitable data loss.
Please remember: Your ID: 773923
with its help your sign-on password will be generated.
On visiting the website it asks that I pay USD 100 to decrypt my hard drives and any other methods will result in complete data loss.
I have done google searches on my problem with no avail. I have considered reformatting but I am against this because my computer has important files both personal and professional.
Any help on this matter?
