New member | Level 2

Hi everyone, I would need some help with this issue. Yesterday at 13:59, when I was not using my computer many files were changed as  "xxx.luckyday" and a new file (txt) was created that said:


All your important files have been encrypted!
Any attempts to restore your files with the thrid-party software will be fatal for your files!
There is only one way to get your files back:

| 1. Download Tor browser - and install it.
| 2. Open link in TOR browser - http://luckydaynywoklzy.onion/?99a0b8f4f6e2ba76f6c8fc8213dc1ff7
This link only works in Tor Browser!
| 3. Follow the instructions on this page
| 4. ID Decrypt <<fb85aac0e82c01088dfd201a1a575cbc>>

### Attention! ###
# Do not rename encrypted files.
# Do not try to decrypt using third party software, it may cause permanent data loss.
# Decryption of your files with the help of third parties may cause increased price(they add their fee to our).
# Tor Browser may be blocked in your country or corporate network. Use or use Tor Browser over VPN.
# Tor Browser user manual

Don't forget about GDPR.


This happened ONLY with my files that were in dropbox! I need inmediate help from dropbox support team, not a chatbot.
