This extortioner is known since December 2017. But very little information.
There is a note text and an extension to add. It's all.
Nobody reported the name of Ransom-note, nor the country from which the victims. 
 
I opened a draft of an article about Yoshikada Ransomware.

As typically with ransomware reports, a Google search yields numerous bogus and untrustworthy removal guides for Yoshikada Decryptor which should be ignored but not much else other than the legit information provided by Amigo-A.

That's a GlobeImposter 2.0 decrypter. This is definitely just another GlobeImposter variant, along with "Zerwix".

I have long had suspicions about this relations.
Now added the genealogy in article, a message about this decrypter, links and redirects.
Only until now there are no samples.

Since the infection has been properly identified by Demonslay335 as GlobeImposter 2.0, I have corrected the topic title and all victims should refer to the below support topic discussion.To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.

Thanks
