DALE file extension - Chip ransomware affected file

What is dale file? How to open dale files?

File type specification:

Ransomware encrypted file type icon Ransomware encrypted file type

File extension dale seems to be since December 2016 used by a ransomware labeled as Chip, which was clearly inspired by the Chipmunks cartoon.

Much like similar ransomware it encrypts users files then tries to ransom the decryption key to the victim, with the ransom notes being saved in a DALE_FILES.TXT file.

Help how to open:

You need to wait for some decryptor to appear, if it ever appears. Otherwise restore from backup.

How to convert:

You can only convert the files once you have restored them using decryptor.
