What Is Locky Ransomware?
Locky is ransomware not different from many others: it encrypts user’s files and demands payment for a decryption tool. Files stored in cloud services and shared files on local networks are also encrypted, so the only sure way to get back the files is to restore from offline backups. Even paying the ransom is not a reliable method: some users reported that the decryption tool wasn’t able to decrypt all of the files. However, some methods, like restoring the files from shadow copies, might work in some cases.
