This is the support topic for the Black Ruby Ransomware. When this ransomware is installed it will encrypt a victim's files and then drop a ransom note named HOW-TO-DECRYPT-FILES.txt. Files that are encrypted will have the .BlackRuby extension appended to them.
To make matters worse, this ransomware will also install a Monero Miner.
