I think I confused you. The 'software' I'm referring to is the tool released by F-Secure (link in the first reply). I have not received anything from the perpetrators. The software they claim to be developing is not what I was referring to. From what it looks like, F-Secure has developed a tool that allows people with keys to decrypt their files, but the instructions on how to use it are over my head. Hope someone breaks down step by step instructions for novices like me.

Hello, I recently was hit with synolocker like many others. I read on a synology forum that F-Secure had released software for those who paid the ransome and have the private/public keys. I have mine, but am confused on how to use the software. Forgive me, but I'm not extremeley technical with computers. I believe I have successfully installed python and pycrypto, but as to the process to decrypt I am lost. Is there a way to have a beginners guide written or a youtube video posted on the step by step process? The installation/usage instructions are too vague for my ablilty. Below are the steps but I simply do not understand. A quick video would be amazing. It appears there are quite a few people with keys that will use this software, just not sure how many people understand how to use it. Installation First, ensure you have Python 2.7.8 and pycrypto 2.6.1 installed. Then simply copy the synounlocker.py-script to a directory of your choosing. Usage From the command line: synounlocker.py <path to encrypted file> <path to private key file>
