My computer had been hijacked by "Cryptolocker" a ransomware you might be well aware of. The nasty ransomware has encrypted most of my documents and video files. I used an anti-malware and removed the ransomware from my PC. But my files are left encrypted. I tried to search for a decryption tool on the net and I found decryption tools for files locked by teslacrypt, criptoXXX etc but not for files locked by cryptolocker. I used those tools and they are not working for me. I wont be paying any ransom to those hackers. Now I guess the only option is to wait until the hackers get caught and the decryption keys get uncovered and published. Now my question is how do I get notified if the decryption keys are uncovered and published. What websites do I need to constantly visit to get notified? By the way do you know any ways to decrypt files locked by cryptolocker?
