New variant of ransomware Global Imposter 2.0, I do not know much about
Ransomware but follows information that may be useful to good people.


Attached is an unencrypted and encrypted file.

We made the payment of 0.5 BTC and even then did not send the instructions for decryption.  :smash:

From what I've seen this is not decryptable at the moment.

Unfortunately, there is no known way at this time to decrypt files encrypted by all the latest versions of GlobeImposter without paying the ransom. 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. 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.
