Cant find dropper or txt for Locky Infection

Recommended Posts



Ive tried your Decryptor for Autolocky and I get the error message


The decryptor could not determine a valid key from your system.


The OS is Windows 2008 Server but I dont believe the infections was launched from the server. Ive found a pc on the network which has also been infected and the user reported an odd attachment so Ive search that PC for the .txt file but I cannot find it anywhere? 

Do I need this txt file to decrypt the files back on the server or do you have another version of the decryptor which can be run on my server to decrypt the file?


I have shadow copy loaded and for now Im able to resurrect the files as and when users report them missing but I would like to just run the decryptor on the server just to reverse the effects of LOCKY

If this is indeed the latest Locky variant, then decryption is not possible unfortunately. Can you please tell me what the name of the ransom note is (if you find one) and what the format is of affected files, so I can determine what ransomware variant you are dealing with?

I can confirm the file extension is .locky. 


This is what I found

In that case unfortunately decryption is not possible due to the way the files are encrypted and the complexity of the encryption algorithm. To restore your files you'd have to use a recent backup.


Please let me know if you have further questions about this.
