djekr@aol.com did follow through with his/her promise to send a decryption key and we were able to decrypt our files.

Hi there!

 

May I ask you if you paid for it? Also how could we try using this key you provided above? Is there a decryption tool where we can try this key, please? Any idea?

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.

Im in the same situation with a server and SQL database that needs decrypted. Is there anything out there or any companies that can decrypt it? There are three decrypted data restoration ccompanies that say they can do it. Is this a scam? Or valid..

There is no known method to decrypt files encrypted by LockCrypt that I am aware of. If there were, we would provide that information in this support topic.

I chatted with the hacker who's pushing out a .2018 version of LockCrypt.  He said he had to purchase the keys from someone else though his prices were all over the place from $700us (BC Equivalent) to 2 Bitcoin depending on the time of day I asked him.

He keeps saying the same story. He used to say the same things back on September 2017. He always asking from the victim to post something that would prove that this guy is really giving a decryption key. That way he keeps his reputation high and he continues "selling" decryption keys. You may know (or have read) that in almost 50% of the cases the victim pays and gets nothing at the end. So that way is self proved that he is not belonging on the half part of the hackers that give nothing.

 

Last September (2017) I reported the incident to the electronic crime dept of the German Police but they couldn't do a lot. After one month of investigation they ended up, doing almost nothing, because the relevant companies from USA (the one leasing him the virtual servers and the other providing him the email address) never replied to police's request. Although I exposed his IPs through his email headers and reporting it with details in the police, they had no luck.

 

So, if you are based in the US, I would recommend you not to pay anything and proceed with a report to the electronic crime dept of your local police. That would really help, because these companies are based in the US and they are obligated to conform with the US laws, although they didn't even reply to the German police.I am sure that this would more effective than throw out thousands of dollars and hopefully the police in the US will be able to help catching this guy. He really deserves to get in jail.

I'm interested in confirming if .2018 and .1btc are indeed LockCrypt. Do you happen to have the malware, or any executables from them?

Yes, I have the decryption program for the .2018, and some encrypted samples with me.  My client still has all the computers in a mostly untouched state with the exception of the one where they were forced to pay for decryption. I can grab anything you need off of it.  What do you want, and where can I send it?

I have seen the .2018 and yes, they are both LockCrypt.  What's interesting I have now been getting Phishing emails threatening my life and if I don't pay a ransom, they will have me killed.   These idiots need to be put in Jail... and little do they know what kind of arsenal I have ;)

Server was compromised today with only external running service.

 

All files have been encrypted (both contents and the file name). Each file name ends with .1btc

 

Very similar to https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/668502/1btc-restore-files/

 

How can I help/What do you need?

If you can find the malicious executable that you suspect was involved in causing the infection, it can be submitted here with a link to this topic...it's best to zip (compress) all files before sharing.

Is there any particular places I should look for?

 

Would they be deleted? Funny thing is I noticed a unknown username that was logged in called "tester" I'll check if it's there.

These are some common folder variable locations malicious executables and .dlls hide:
  • %SystemDrive%\ (C:\)
  • %SystemRoot%\ (C:\Windows, %WinDir%\)
  • %UserProfile%\
  • %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\
  • %AppData%\
  • %LocalAppData%\
  • %ProgramData%\ / %AllUserProfile%\
  • %Temp%\ / %AppData%\Local\Temp\
Note: Some folders like %AppData% are hidden by the operating system so you may need to configure Windows to show hidden files & folders.

Also check the history logs and quarantine folders for your anti-virus and other security scanning tools to see if they found and removed any malware possibly related to the ransomware.
