Got hit today. The hacker used RDP to access our Server 2008 r2 file server, changed the administrator password once accessed, downloaded and installed AxCrypt and encrypted all our files. Their was a randsom note on the desktop. Backups weren't solid, and trying to see if anyone out there has seen this and maybe has experience in handling it.


Randsom Note Contents:

Hello shadcook17,


VirusTotal detects with the README!!!.txt : https://www.virustotal.com/#/file-analysis/NjE1NGNhNmI0NmIwZmZkZjZhZmJkZGJmZjcyYWQyOWI6MTUwODIzOTAwMA==

Can you also send 2-3 crypted samples by wetransfer to see if there is a solution.


Kind regards,

You posted the same information here.

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 topic discussion
