Our server got hit and they encrypted our Uservol which has our Teachers and Students files. 


It is a .keepcalm file - the email address they tell us to go to is


keepcalmpls@india.com and we have a personal ID.

This is a variant of GlobeImposter. Afraid the newest one is not decryptable. You can only restore from backups, or try recovery software such as Recuva and hope to be lucky.


I believe this group hacks RDP, so make sure that is secured.

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.
