    Need to know which one you got hit by. Is it the bit-locker virus?

    Kaspersky has a solution for a similar ransom ware:

    So busy trying to deal with this yesterday...smh anyway it's the CBT Locker. I think i may have zero in on the machine but i'm wondering if it would have traveled to other computers.

    Nope, but it should work. This is why I don't use things like BitLocker. I rather TrueCrypt.
