For those of us who are victims of this GlobeImposter 2.0 ransomware.


I have the scammer talked down to $250 US for the decoder.   Nothing I hate more than to pay this guy, but if it will open up the key and benefit everyone else, I'm considering it.

Would any of you who also need it be willing to chip in to help cover this payment? 


Moderator, so all you would need is the decoder and my encrypted ID?

Typically with ransomware, each victim's decrypter (decoder) provided by the malware developer is unique to them with their own private RSA decryption key, password or personal ID which cannot be used with someone else's encrypted files. Sharing a decrypter, decryption key, password or personal ID provided by the cyber-criminals with another victim who paid the ransom will not work since the keys are different for each individual case. Further, there is no guarantee that the decrypter provided by the cyber-criminals will work properly and in some cases using a faulty or incorrect decrypter may cause additional damage or corruption of files.

However, if you received a working decrypter, you can zip and submit it here with a link to this topic along with a few encrypted files and anything else the malware writers provide.

Even though the decrypter will not work for other victims, our crypto malware experts may be able to get some information by analyzing it further.
