Hey all,



I've been working all afternoon to determine what type(or types) of Ransomware has infected this server that I'm working with and now I'm hoping someone here can help me.  I've uploaded a few of the encrypted files (extension .BTC.[mk.raiden@aol.com].wallet) and so far it's indicated that it's a Dharma encryption.  I've downloaded a handful of different decryption tools, but none of them have been able to make heads or tails of the files.  I've attached an example of the encrypted files, as well as what I believe is the original version of the file.  If anyone has ever run into these or knows what I could do to decrypt these files, that would make my day.  At the moment I'm stuck reimaging this machine and simply backing up this data in the event one day it can be decrypted.

Thanks all,

Unfortunately, there is no known way at this time to decrypt files encrypted by Dharma .wallet or .zzzzz variants without paying the ransom.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where victims can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.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 above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
