Do we need a canonical question about how to deal with ransomware, so that questions like this could be marked as a duplicate instead of closed as off topic?
An answer could consist of something along the lines of:
- You should keep backups. Restore if you have them.
- Don't pay.
- Check these sites out to see if your specific strain of malware can be decrypted.
Is this a good idea? Are there already a question out there that might fit the bill?
