Kundnummer: 45202

Meddelande: Hi OK I have come to the conclusion this is going to cost me something and I'm happy to pay. I have some pictures of my late father and I have no back ups. Without these I have only my memory of him which is fading  so I trust you understand how important these are to me. I have read many stories about people paying but not ever getting the files unlocked. I have a proposition for you – give me what I want to unlock my email .pst file and if you do, ill make payment to get my photos unlock. As a sign of good faith, and so I know I will once again be able to get the photos of my dad. Lets know what you think,

I am waiting for my files to be open, in Jesus name!!!!

Genom en världsunik läcka kan SVT nu avslöja de innersta hemligheterna i ett stort nätverk som attackerat världen med utpressningsvirus i flera år.

  • Tillsammans med Sverige har Australien, Polen, Spanien, Italien, Turkiet och England drabbats hårdast. Sammanlagt har nätverket attackerat offer i över 30 länder.  
  • 1,6 miljoner svenskar har fått utskicken från Telia- och Postnord-kampanjen.
    Minst 20.000 svenskar har laddat ned viruset.
  • Nätverket tar emot lösensummor i den digitala valutan bitcoin som ger stora möjligheter till penningtvätt och anonymitet. Offren uppmanas betala motsvarande 400 till 6000 kronor i bitcoin.
  • Spåren leder till Ryssland och en internetleverantör i Sankt Petersburg. Därifrån har attackernas styrts. När en användare öppnar den nedladdade filen krypteras hårddisken och via olika platser i världen skickar krypteringsprogrammet till slut iväg den specifika nyckeln till Ryssland.
  • Nätverkets senaste kampanj avslutades våren 2017. Den server som SVT:s fått tillgång till är inte längre aktiv men verkade mellan hösten 2015 och våren 2017.
