ENCRYPTED file extension - Donald Trump ransomware affected file

What is encrypted file? How to open encrypted files?

File type specification:

Ransomware encrypted file type icon Ransomware encrypted file type

File extension encrypted seems to be also used by a ransomware featuring Donald Trump  that appeared in late September 2016.

Apparently, the encryption mechanism of this ransomware does not work upon it's release. Something that may change in the future.

Help how to open:

A special decrypter would be needed, if the ransomware actually encrypted your files.

How to convert:

Files affected by ransomware can only be converted once they have been recovered.
