Title: How to recover files encrypted with .refols ransomware
Post by: osalmasan on April 05, 2019, 02:09:49 pm
Hi, recently my laptop got infected with this ransomware and encrypted with a .refols extension.
Please see ransomware note and sample infected file.

Tried using STOP Decryptor but no lock. Just wandering if there are anybody from here who has the same experience as mine.

Thank you, osalmasan for sharing this information.
We have a post in our blog about .refols Files Virus (https://sensorstechforum.com/remove-refols-files-virus/) and sadly, the STOP decryptor is not yet adapted to work with this variant of the ransomware.

Keep track of the decryptor - it might get updated to decrypt .refols locked files in the future.
