    If its ransomware has there been no popup asking for payment? If so then was there no name of the software? Most recent ransomware is well coded enough (as a result of being an off the shelf product these days) that unless you have the key knowing the underlying encryption mechanism won't help. – Hector Jan 18 '18 at 9:20

.lin Extension Virus is quite a bad worm, file-encrypting virus.

It is known to delete users encrypted data after if receiving the ransom money, so the ransom is a no-go anyway.

SpyHunter is a known tool that removes the virus.

Here is a complete guide for this issue.
