New .Aesir File Extension - What Is It

Postby 1dunn0 » November 21, 2016, 2:20 pm

Hello, i am currently in the malware research field and I would like to inform about a new file extension, related to a very dangerous ransowmare type of virus, called Locky Ransomware. If your files have changed names and the .aesir file extension changed, you most likely have been visited by this threat. The files are no longer openable and the virus wants payment in BitCoin to download a decryptor for the files. Here is more information and some alternative methods to try and restore at least a small portion of the files:
