    Roughly 6 hours ago, our machine became victim of a ransomware virus attack. When ransomware infects a computer, it will go through every file on the computer and encrypt it with its own special file encryption. The attacker literally holds your files for ransom and asks for money in return for your files back. In most cases, the ransom will be paid, but the files will not be returned.

    Both John and I have been searching throughout the internet for a miracle to decrypt these files. Sadly, this encryption method is new, and there are currently no known methods to decrypt it. We're working with several sources to see what our options are.

    In the meantime, the server will remain down while we further assess the situation. At this time I have no estimated time frame on when the server will be back up and running.

    As soon as I have any more information, I will update this thread.

    UPDATE 6/1/2017 8:13PM
    Just to fill everyone in, we're still going through the data, and we hope to have a conclusion tomorrow night on what data can be pulled from this machine.

    Hopefully you find the right decrypter to get the files back if not its gonna suck on your end and for the people that get to experience another money and inventory wipe + server rehaul blah blah.

    Good luck.

    is it wannacrypt? If so, I can recall Officer Dan speaking about how he knows the people who started those attacks in TS.

    Also, can you try paying the ransom? Depending on where it originated from it might legitimately release your files after it's paid. If not, this might be worth a shot. Did the server not have a backup? Can't you just do a roll-back?

    I don't think you understand peoples money and inventory files and hours were all on it. I don't think you can just back that shit up.
