Hey guys,

 

My work got hit with the THOR version late last week. Fortunately it was contained to one home directory and less than a 100 files on a share drive (all were available via backups).

 

Does this ransomware only encrypt files? Or can it also send the encrypted files back to the C&C servers to steal the data?

 

Feel free to move to appropriate forum if this is better suited somewhere else.

 

Thanks!

It only encrypts files, no files are sent to the server. You should be able to restore from backups with no problem.

Okay great! Thanks for the response!

 

Though... now I gotta deal with how to restore these things. Some 180K files in this folder apparently and only a handful was actually encrypted. File names are over written so gonna be interesting figuring out a way to know which ones are actually encrypted to restore.

Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the below support topic discussion.To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.

Thanks
