Had someone RDP into one of my Home PC's. Port was supposed to be disabled (only VPN access allowed) But Verizon had told a family member to reset my router but did not let me know it was done.


I have a file in ever folder labeled: ! How Decrypt Files.txt


Each file is labeled as the following: FMLA Paperwork.pdf.[*****@****.***]-id-2A8C.wallet (if the emal is needed let me know)


In the how to decrypt there is only a message stating to send an email nothing else.


A lot of important pictures have been lost since an external was connected to the RDP PC. nothing else matters.


Is there a way to try and brute force the key?


I have some original files and the encrypted ones if needed.


only 1 result came from ID Ransomware:


BTCWare PayDay
 This ransomware has no known way of decrypting data at this time.

It is recommended to backup your encrypted files, and hope for a solution in the future.

ID Ransomware already gave you all of the information. It is not decryptable without the criminal's private RSA keys. Only chance otherwise is if you had happened to dump RAM while the process was still running, that is the only time the AES key is in cleartext in memory. Once it terminates, it is only left in its RSA-encrypted form (the base64 you see at the end of files).

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.
