    Cryptovirus - Bitcoins


    So i have a new client with no backup and got hit by this virus.

    Cryptovirus = Encrypts the users data locally and network drives that the computer has access to. Only way to unlock is by knowing the [key] to unlock and it has an 80 hour deadline.

    Right now we are at 50hours.

    I havent used bitcoin's before but what would it be the fastest way to get $300US in bitcoin.

    Any ideas?

    Yea i looked into that but it takes couple of days to verify account and send bitcoins.

    I'm looking for more of an express service using mastercard to send bitcoins asap.

    I'd be contacting the Bitcoin Exchanges and seeing what they can do there the ones who convert currency to bitcoin.
