The note of the Polski ransomware states that your files are encrypted with the AES 256-bit encryption algorithm. A ransom sum of 249 USD is demanded as payment for unlocking your data. You are given 72 hours by the ransom criminals to unlock your files, or else the ransom sum doubles in price. You should NOT under any circumstance pay the cybercriminals. Your files may not get restored, and nobody could give you any real guarantee for that. Furthermore, giving money to these criminals will likely motivate them to create more ransomware or do other criminal activities.

However, you should try to get those 2 files decrypted for free, because they might come in handy if an actual decrypter is released.

For the moment, no list with file extensions that the Polski ransomware seeks to encrypt is available, but files with the following extensions are the most logical to get encrypted:

→.7z, .bmp, .doc, .docm, .docx, .html, .jpeg, .jpg, .mp3, .mp4, .pdf, .php, .ppt, .pptx, .rar, .rtf, .sql, .tiff, .txt, .xls, .xlsx, .zip

Each file that gets encrypted will receive the same extension appended to every one of them, and that is the .aes extension.

The Polski cryptovirus is very likely to delete the Shadow Copies from the Windows operating system by utilizing the following command:

→vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet

Read on through and check out what type of ways you can try to potentially restore some of your data.
