The ransom ware came in via RDP port,which are now blocked. Oct our two servers and two clients were infected with ransomware ODIN. This ransomware was brought in via an attachment that was opened on one client. It spread fast before we could shut down all systems or pull LAN cables. We restored via our back up drives. Took one month to clean up and restore. My advice is to not click on anything you do not know. If something comes to your computer that you cannot shut down, then immediately shut down your computer, pull the plug or do whatever it takes to shut it down. If it is a Laptop or similar device pull the battery also This has been my best defense since I learned the hard way and destroyed my computer.

The majority of these entities were smaller local governments… At this time, the evidence gathered indicates the attacks came from one single threat actor… Twenty-three entities have been confirmed as impacted.

At the end of each year for the last two years, I have written articles predicting trends in ransomware for the next coming year. Each article was a mix of accurate and inaccurate predictions — fortunately, more accurate than inaccurate. The biggest ransomware story ofarguably, happened in the city of Atlanta. The SamSam team hit the city hard, disrupting vital services for days and leaving some data completely unrecoverable. There were dozens of stories about cities, utilities, ports, and more that were infected with ransomware in Since ransomware attacks continue to challenge all types of organizations and not just healthcare and governmenthere are the anticipated trends in ransomware for In January ofRecorded Future was tracking ransomware campaigns. In February ofthat number was 1, and at the end of Januarywe were tracking 1, campaigns. While the number of ransomware variants continues to expand rapidly, the truth is that most of these campaigns are ineffective and die out quickly. An example of this phenomenon is the Cryptgh0st ransomware shown below. It was first discovered in May and by the end of August, virtually all mentions of the ransomware disappeared. Most successful campaigns in involved ransomware that relies on open Remote Desktop Protocol RDP servers as the initial access point. Ransomware families such as SamSam, BitPaymer, and CrySiS thrived, whereas other campaigns failed because they did not rely on web exploitation or phishing to gain access to victim networks. These campaigns look for networks that have internet-facing servers running the RDP service. Once the attackers have successfully gained access to the exposed system, they use it as a jumping off point into the core of the network, installing their ransomware onto target machines and often disabling backups and other protections. JBoss, FTP, and other services have all been targets of these groups, but open RDP servers are the preferred target because there are a lot of them, they are easy to find, and they are easy to exploit. Publicly accessible RDP servers are widely available for a couple of reasons. The second reason is that often organizations are not aware that the RDP service is running on internet-facing servers. This could be a configuration error, a failed security check, or it could be started by another service after the server is deployed. It is worth noting that with the recent takedown of the xDedic marketplace, the pool of readily available, low-priced RDP servers may be in short supply, at least until a new dominant marketplace emerges. Almost every headline-grabbing ransomware story in involved criminals who accessed the victim networks through a poorly secured RDP server, as shown in the timeline below. Note how the trend line stayed consistent throughout the year. Expect that to continue intoat least until organizations figure out how to secure or remove their RDP servers.

If you would like this page to stay current, I would need to work on it full time — so please contribute to my retirement account. First, a disclaimer. I am not in any way linked to the publications or software listed herein. That being said I also am going to attempt to keep this as up-to-date as possible.

My suggestion, if you are in the process of dealing with a ransomware infection is to first Identify which variant you are dealing with — if you need help you should check here first and then return to this page. If you are have identified the variant and are looking for a decryptor, many variants have decryptors and a list can be found at the Nomoreransom project page and on my own list of decryptors from various sites found here. The following are the ransomware variants of which I am aware. Therefore, you may click on a link, say aaa — extension, and it will take you to a page with links about Alphacrypt. Many variants are named for the extension they append to files. If you come across a ransomware variant not listed here, please contact me with a link to an explanation of the Ransomware in question.

Ransomware encrypted file type extensions file extension database entries. File extensions used by various ransomware that rename the original suffix after the files are encrypted. List of common ransomware encrypted files. Ransomware as a concept is nothing new, and first one dates back to and was known as "AIDS". However, in recent years, this type of cyber attack increased in its intensity and nowadays cryptovirology researchers find new types or versions of ransomware every week. The concept of ransomware basically is to covertly install malware that encrypts the victim's files and then requests a ransom payment in return for the decryption key that is needed to recover the encrypted files. However, this quickly changes and malware designers well thieves really come with more sophisticated ways of ransomware distribution and infection mechanisms. Bitcoins seem to be preferred ransom choice nowadays, because it is impossible to track the recipients. One important thing to say is that there is no guarantee that you will get your files back, even if you pay the ransom and indeed many ransomware are just pure and evil scams. Typical ransomware encrypts user's files and changes the file suffix to something else, probably so the victim can quickly see which types of files were affected. However, this trend quickly changes and "modern" ransomware often use randomized file extension or even remove the extension completely so it is harder for the user to recognize the type of infection.
