Mac Ransonware 2.9 problem 2.92 fix doesn't work

Postby Domosaur » Thu Mar 10, 2016 9:49 am

Hi! Recently the 2.9 version of Transmission on mac has been attacked by a ransomware software which encrypts all your files. On your main webpage it says that installing 2.92 will eliminate this problem. However, I have downloaded 2.92 and nothing was fixed! I followed this link http://researchcenter.paloaltonetworks. ... installer/ however it still doesn't work and my files are still encrypted

If there is any alternative fix please help!!

Thank You

2.92 only removes the malware itself - it can’t reverse the damage caused. If you don’t have a backup, then in all likelihood the files encrypted are lost.
