These ransom notes are DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.HTML, DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION.TXT, and the DECRYPT_INSTRUCTION URL shortcut to the decryption service. Each of these files contains instructions on how you can access the CryptoWall Decrypt Service, which is located at hxxps://kpai7ycr7jxqkilp.torexplorer.com/ URL, and pay the ransom. The ransom is currently set to 500 USD and is payable with Bitcoins. The amount of Btcoins required will change based on their current price.”
