We've been hit by a ransomware which has encrypted all files on our 2012 server.


Every file has the extension ending .unavailable, every file has a duplicate with the filename.Read_me.


I have submitted an encrypted file and have clean duplicate if needed. We have tried your Malware package, AVG etc and it finds nothing.


We are desperate to solve this ??


If there's anything to decrypt, we tried the Apocalypse and Apocalypsevm they didn't work.

Hi ITmanDan,
We need the malware file which causes the infection to be able to do anything.
Do you have RDP enabled on your server, by any chance?

Thank you for the reply, we're pulling our hair out here :(


We had a network company install it all, it's quite possible, they gave me a remote desktop login for the server. Can i disable it ?


Would it help at all to do a file recovery on the drives to see if anything has been deleted or is that pointless ? We really need this running again, although I'm totally against terrorists but we are contemplating paying up !
