%C1%A6%B8%F1_%BE%F8%C0%BD.jpgMy client was infected with an unknown ransomware(at least it seems) 
A lot of info is unknown since he just contacted me about an hour ago 
 
This is what happened 
1. While he was doing his thing on the web he had a pop up message to install something 

2. All of his file as shown above in image has been encrypted with the extension of ".skvtb" . I was not able to find a single information about this.

3. Weird thing is, he claims no ransomnote has been dropped anywhere 

I asked him to go through ID ransomware and come back to me. 

Update will be made as soon as I get more info. 

Thank you for your help in advance.

Update : 

It seems to be it might have been Magniber ransom-ware.Not 100% sure at the moment.

Just for the fact that him and I are in Korea. 

Do not lock the discussion, update will be added.

The patterns in the encrypted files from two Korean IPs do look like Magniber to me. Is there a ransom note? That would allow us to confirm it (and I can add the signature to IDR if so).

My client has not come back to me but as it seems, .skvtb extension is a variant of Magniber Ransomware. 

What I find most disturbing is not the fact that there might be no decryption tool for the fact that the victims uses Korean IP address but the first page that i googled the info i needed, they used the darn same pic that I used in this forum.... How amazing! 

 

Back to topic, go ahead and lock it and let me know if there has been any updates on this very ransomware 

Thanks

When or if updates are available, that information will be provided in the below support topic and you will receive notification if subscribed to it.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. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.

Thanks
