Kick back on the couch and discuss all things not directly related to QuarkXPress.

Unfortunately I have had quite a few of my Quark files encrypted by ransomware (howdecrypt / cryptolocker) and decided not to pay the ransom. These were files that I had also backed up but the backup was on the network and I have since began backing up and taking offline, lesson learned. Has anyone been able to decrypt previously encrypted Quark files? I have found an application that will decrypt jpg files that were encrypted by the ransomware, but nothing else. Thanks for any input on this matter.
Probably good you didn't pay the ransom. There are quite a few posts on various forums I have read saying that they paid a ransom and never got their files decrypted. Seems like a crap-shoot. Rid yourself of the ransomware (I assume you have), put into place more/better backup methods, perhaps better internet security, better firewall, etc.
