Hi Everyone,


One of our servers got infected with ransomware. Please suggest methods and options to decrypt the data.

Files are appearing with extension vhdchain.PS1.

You need to identify exactly which ransomware you have before anyone can possibly help you. Go here:https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/608858/id-ransomware-identify-what-ransomware-encrypted-your-files/

We are drowning in information - and starving for wisdom.

I have not seen that extension before.. it may be something new.

Samples of any encrypted files, ransom notes or suspicious executable's (installer, malicious files, attachments) that you suspect were involved in causing the infection can be submitted here (https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php?channel=168) with a link to this topic. There is a "Link to topic where this file was requested" box under the Browse... button. Doing that will be helpful with analyzing and investigating by our crypto malware experts.
