Got a few emails this morning, contained a link to this document file hosted on amazon, "SignContract.doc"

Doc runs this file

Encrypts file with .locked file extension which seems pretty common for lots of different ransomware.

 

Ransom Note: "LOCKED.txt"

 

All your files have been encrypted!

You have 5 days to decrypt and every 6 hours one file from your computer will be deleted

All your documents and files (databases, texts, images, videos, musics, programs) were encrypted. The encryption was done using a secret key that is now on our servers.

The Encryption is unbreakable and the amount for decrypt the files are 0.1 bitcoins in U$$ is approximately 150 U$$

To decrypt your files you will need to buy the secret key from us. We are the only on the world who can provide this for you.

What can I do?

Pay the ransom, in bitcoins, in the amount and wallet below. You can use LocalBitcoins.com to buy bitcoins.

The process is 100% automatic and once your transaction is confirmed in bitcoin it is only need send the transaction id and all your files will decrypted.

Bitcoin Amount: 0.1
Wallet for Sending Bitcoins: 18QqBF35VeNTcdWPZJFMy32hrYDHy9iSR7

 

I tried the ID Ransomware page, didn't seem to have any good results on the note, just search results based on the extension.

Looking at some stuff for Philadelphia ransomware, it seems like a close match, the ransom popup seems very similar.

You're dealing with Philadelphia ransomware, yes. Emsisoft have a free decrypter here; you will need an encrypted and original file pair. Drag and drop the file pair onto the decrypter icon to start the decrypter. A more detailed usage guide can be found here.

Ah, didn't see that. Good thinking about running it in a VM.

ID Ransomware should have picked up on the encrypted files if they were renamed, it does look for a certain pattern with the ".locked" extension that Philadelphia usually does.

 

I've added the Bitcoin address, so this build of it will get picked up for future submissions.

Since the infection has been identified and since Philapdelphia ransomware is essentially a new version of Stampado, rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if victims posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the below support topic discussion.To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.

Thanks
