So we got hit by ransomware and the backups were also encrypted before we knew.  We paid the ransom, and received a zipped file with 3 files: public.key, private.key, and software.exe.

We ran the software but all it appears to do is remove the .BTC extension - the files are still encrypted.  

The ransomware does look like the one described here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/631267/btclocker-btc-ransomware-support-topic-btc-btc-decrypt-filestxt/

 

Is there anything else we can try in order to use these keys to decrypt the data?

Thanks Guys

Did you submit samples of encrypted files and ransom notes to ID Ransomware for assistance with identification and confirmation?
