Welcome to Bleeping Computer
Any files that are encrypted with Mich78 / Scarab Ransomware
will have the .[email@example.com]
extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename and leave files (ransom) notes named recovery.txt.
Any files that are encrypted with Ammesia Ransomware
will have the .amnesia
extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename and leave files (ransome notes) named HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES.TXT, RECOVER-FILES.HTML. The ransom note instructs victims to contact the cyber-criminals at "firstname.lastname@example.org" to get payment instructions...email@example.com probably is a new email address they are using.
Samples of any encrypted files, ransom notes or suspicious executable's (installer, malicious files, attachments) that you suspect were involved in causing the infection can be submitted (uploaded) here
with a link to this topic. There is a "Link to topic where this file was requested
" box under the Browse... button. Doing that will be helpful with analyzing and investigating by our crypto malware experts.
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.
