A client had an outbreak last night. Many files were encrypted with the [habibi.habibi3@aol.com].java extension to all infected files.[/size]
Due to the severity of the infection, I shutdown the server which was later discovered to be a good idea as it was infecting a secondary servers shared folder.[/size]
Ran webroot scan on the server with zero infections found. I couldnt find any reference to this ransomware online using a google search either.
I wont be able to retrieve the ransom note until we go onsite to repair the server, but ill post the info once I have it.
Any ideas or help appreciated.

Any files that are encrypted with Dharma (CrySiS) Ransomware will have an id-<8 random hexadecimal characters>.[<email>] followed by the .dharma, .wallet, .zzzzz, .onion, .cesar, .arena, .cobra or .java extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename.
Dharma (CrySiS) will leave files (ransom notes) with names like README.txt, README.jpg, Hello my vichtim.txt, Your personal data are encrypted!.txt, FILES ENCRYPTED.txt, Files encrypted!!.txt, info.hta.

You can submit (upload) samples of encrypted files, ransom notes and any contact email addresses or hyperlinks provided by the cyber-criminals to
ID Ransomware for assistance with identification and confirmation.

Unfortunately, there is no known method to decrypt files encrypted by the .zzzzz, .cesar, .arena, .cobra and .java variants of Dharma (CrySiS) without paying the ransom. If possible, your best option is to restore from backups, try file recovery software or backup/save your encrypted data as is and wait for a possible solution at a later time.

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.
