I have a server that can no longer boot to Windows 2008 Server. The screen shows: your server was encrypted. to decrypt contact: agella@scryptmail.com

One of the drives that has data on it was removed and put into a Windows 7 machine so I can see if the data was intact. It shows that it is not formatted however when I run a utility to detect files, it finds them but they are all renamed to a random name with different extensions (most have a .SWF extension). I cannot seem to find out what type of ransomware this is before I attempt to pull the data off and decrypt it. I can offer remote access to the machine if required.

There are several ransomware variants which will modify the Master Boot Record (MBR) so that it displays a message indicating your computer has been encrypted and that you will be unable to access your data unless you pay a ransom to get a password. These include DiskCryptor (Mamba), HDDCryptor (Mamba), Encrypted Boot Ransomware (safe-data.ru), Petya, GoldenEye and Satana.


There are ongoing discussions in these 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 one of the above support topic discussions...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.
