good morning to all, today a client called me who found all his files encrypted with the extension "recover@8chan.co".


The attacker left a very simple ransom note written in a .txt with the personal identifier and the contact email, thus no other track type.



Run a full scan with "malwarebytes" but found no trace of viruses.



I surfed the web exhaustively without finding any information about it, that's why I come to you, thank you!

It looks like Scarab Ransomware.


You should look at this topic :

If interrested to see if Dr.Web can decrypt the files of your client, please send the ransom note file with 3-4 crypted files (if possible .doc files).

You can use https://wetransfer.com/ to send the files at emte@adc-soft.com

Opening a request at Dr.Web support is completly free but, if they succeed to decrypt your files and your are interrested to get the decryptor they made, they ask for reasonnable fees (150 € exc. Vat) if you were not using a Dr.Web antivirus when you files have been crypted.


Kind regards,

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 link provided by Emmanuel_ADC-Soft. 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.
