I have been hit by what appears to be a new type of ransomware.
It has removed all data files from C: drive and turned Bit Locker on my external harddrive (when I try to access it I am asked for a bitlocker password).
It has no ransom splash screen just a readme file contents below.
I would like to tell you first I'm sorry about that. Your documents, files, databased most are in original places or some moved to your local data. If you want to regain access to your local disk, all your files, documents, etc please send 1 BTC (Bitcoin) to this address: 18jAZHhC8uy13n2Ym7YTTmTBfr9r8tivDM as fast as you can and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org If you dont know what bitcoin is, please ask me for bitcoin website that you can buy it fast or search on google for a local Bitcoin shop or ATM and transfer 1 BTC to this address: 18jAZHhC8uy13n2Ym7YTTmTBfr9r8tivDM
It's not my fault if you are try to format disk and lose all. Here are only one way to get all back and regain access to your local hard disk drive and this way is to send 1 Bitcoin to this address: 18jAZHhC8uy13n2Ym7YTTmTBfr9r8tivDM
It's just business not trying to get your money and then to not give to you the bitlocker password. Waiting for your reply to my email address ( email@example.com ) if you wanna get the bitlocker password. Thanks
I have not found anyway to gain access to my external harddrive.
