Locky Ransomware [Updated]

Locky ransomware removal instructions

What is Locky?

Locky is ransomware distributed via malicious .doc files attached to spam email messages. Each word document contains scrambled text, which appear to be macros. When users enable macro settings in the Word program, an executable file (the ransomware) is downloaded. Various files are then encrypted. Note that Locky changes all file names to a unique 16-letter and digit combination with .aesir, .shit, .thor, .locky, .zepto or .odin file extension. Thus, it becomes virtually impossible to identify the original files. All are encrypted using the RSA-2048 and AES-1024 algorithms and, therefore, a private key (stored on remote servers controlled by cyber criminals) is required for decryption. To decrypt the files, victims must pay a ransom.

It is stated that payment of the ransom must fall within the given time frame (seven days), otherwise the ransom amount will double. Some variants of this ransomware disclose their versions - for example: Cerber Ransomware 4.1.5", "Cerber Ransomware 4.1.6", "Cerber Ransomware 5.0.0"  ( the latest variant demands a ransom of $499) etc.
