First, apologies for having to resort to a help request. I've been trying to sort this on my own on and off for three days and had no luck. I did a search for recme in the forum before posting (first in search of help, but again just now to make sure it's not a duplicate topic). 

 

All the files have the extension .recme on the end of them. I uploaded the ransom note and a sample file to the ID website and it came back saying it was amnesia based on the ransom note. Neither the old nor new amnesia decrypter worked, so I tried the ID website again, but without the note and it came back inconclusive (Please reference this case SHA1: f4920365ac5cfceb14db9648aa41a2afd3ac4550). 

 

The ransom note e-mail address was recfiles@protonmail.com (from HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES.TXT)

 

I believe this hack was due to me foolishly leaving my RDP port as 3389 (I just did this a couple months ago). I'm otherwise pretty careful, but I suppose it is at least feasible I clicked on a malicious file. 

 

When I logged on to the computer the morning after the attack, avast and malwarebytes were gone. I promptly installed them and Avast quarantined bgt.exe located in appdata/roaming, naming the thread IDP.Generic.

 

I will upload some encrypted files and originals to this link once I'm done with this post.

 

If anyone has time to help, let me know if I left off any useful information.

Yep, it looks like Scarab. You'll need to contact Dr. Web for help with decryption. They do charge a fee of around 150 Euros if you were not a Dr. Web customer at the time of attack and they are able to decrypt it.

 

Exposing RDP on any port is not acceptable in 2018. Put it behind VPN or don't use RDP at all.

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.

Thanks
