Hi all,

 

We had a ransomware attack that encrypted a database for our homeowner's association and I am hopeful that there is a way to

identify the ransomware and decrypt the file.

 

  • The email address for response is: decrypthelp2@qq.com
  • The ransom note offers to decrypt 5 files for free if they are not critical
  • The ransom note requests to be paid in bitcoins

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Are there any obvious file extensions appended to or with your encrypted data files? If so, what is the extension and is it the same for each encrypted file or is it different? Some types of ransomware will completely rename, encrypt or even scramble file names while others do not append any extensions.
Did you find any ransom notes and if so, what is the actual name of the note?

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. This is a service that helps identify what ransomware may have encrypted your files and then attempts to direct you to an appropriate support topic where you can seek further assistance. Uploading both encrypted files, ransom notes and any contact email addresses or hyperlinks provided by the cyber-criminals together provides a more positive match and helps to avoid false detections. Any email addresses or hyperlinks provided by the criminals may also be helpful with identification. If ID Ransomware cannot identify the infection, you can post the case SHA1 it gives you in your next reply for Demonslay335 to manually inspect the files.

Since the infection has been identified, rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if victims posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the below support topic discussion.To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
