Friends, how are you?

In my work I was infected by this ransonware and I am not able to recover my files with BTCWareDecrypter. Can someone help me?




I can lose my job because of this.

The latest versions of BTCWare using .aleta are not decryptable. They use a different RSA-1024 key, and it's impossible to brute-force the generated AES-256 keys.


Sorry to hear the stakes are so grave, but your company should have A.) not had RDP exposed to the world, and B.) had proper offline/off-site backups.

If possible, your best option is to restore from backups.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where victims can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance but as noted by our expert Demonslay335, the .aleta variant is not decryptable

When or if a decryption solution is found, that information will be provided in the above support topic and you will receive notification if subscribed to it. In addition, a news article most likely will be posted on the BleepingComputer front page.

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.
