What is enc file? How to open enc files?
File type specification:
File extension enc seems to be also related to one of the ransomware called TorrentLocker. This particular variant of the ransomware is spread through e-mail campaigns and pretends to be from the Italian energy company Enel. It seems to mainly target Italian users.
Note: Probably unrelated, but also malicious trojan, laballed as Trojan.Encoder.6491 uses this suffix. Not sure if it also spreads this particular ransomware.
As of 11/2016 a ransomware called encryptoJJS also uses this suffix, but it seems to be rare.
