Hi All,


I recently intercepted some ramsomeware on a client's PC before it completed and removed itself. I haven't seen this one before and there is little online about it, they used a bruteforce attach on RDP (Non standard port) to gain access to the PC, they then removed/disables the AV and downloaded Process Hacker 2, they then uploaded and ran the ransomeware.  I have a copy of the executable and encrypted files, is there somewhere I can upload these for people to check out?

Yes, please submit and malware and information you have here with a link to this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php?channel=168

Also if you could zip it up with any ransom notes, and encrypted files (and their originals for comparison if possible).

By chance did you submit a random note and encrypted file to ID Ransomware to see if it's already something identifiable?

It sounds a lot like what we got over the weekend.

Nonstandard RDP port, installed, encrypted and deleted itself. AV did not detect it (it suffered a critical error). I found Processhacker's setup too. It did detect a Bitcoin miner that was left behind.

I just upped everything I have, 2 zip files (Due to size restri.ction).


File 1 contains encrypted files, recovery messages and an original file that I could work out.


File 2 contains Process Hacker Programs and user appdata files aswell as the original ransomeware binary.


Let me know if I can help with any other info.


Just a Note, It ID'ed as amnesia but the decrypter didn't work

Ruben-e was dealing with CryptON (Cry9, Cry36, Cry128, X3M, Nemesis).

Fabian Wosar released a decrypter for victims of Amnesia.However, the decrypter does not work on some of the newer Amnesia variants so they are still investigating and analyzing.

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.
