ODIN file - Locky ransomware affected file

What is odin file? How to open odin files?

File type specification:

Ransomware encrypted file type icon Ransomware encrypted file type

File extension odin is since September 2016 used as a new suffix for the Locky ransomware that previously used zepto and locky extensions.

Much like previous variants of Locky, also this version is distributed through WS, JS, etc email attachments attached to emails (spams).

Should the user execute the scripts from the attachment, an encrypted DLL installer will be downloaded and launched through Windows' Rundl32.exe.

Help how to open:

Unfortunately, there is no decryptor for .odin files available.

How to convert:

The only way to convert the original data would be to recover the files first.
