I have a client who is a victim of the Crypto Defense randomware virus. Thankfully I was able to find the keys but the thing is I have no idea HOW to use those keys to decrypt their files.


How do I use the keys to decrypt the client's files?

This includes what software I need to use for example.

  • The malware itself should provide the capabilities. If it does not then your client is out of luck. – Ramhound Apr 3 '14 at 18:19

How did you find the key? My understanding is that complete instructions are included as a text file. If you found the key, look for the instructions.

I also found this link that may be helpful: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/cryptodefense-ransomware-information

Good luck!
