  1. I have been infected with Ransomwares


    I recently discovered I have been om the receiving end of ransomware. The format of pretty much every file on my pc has been changed to "eking". I normally wouldn't worry to much about this. I mean. What are you gonna do? The internet is rampant with hackers. Unfortunately. The hack got to my 4 tb storage drive. I am a D.J. All of the music I have is on this drive. How can I recover these files? Bring them back from the eking.

    Oh.

    I see that a Community Moderator converted your thread from a Discussion to a Question.

    Do you have a question?

    It is not quite clear (to me at least) why you've created this thread....

    In case that you do indeed have a problem with ransomware:

    It would be helpful if you would describe your problem more precisely, see:
    Suggestions for asking a question on help forums


    Without knowing more details, suggestion to read/do:

    Try to identify with what Ransomware you're dealing here:
    https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com/index.php


    and read/follow this guide:
    How to remove ransomware the right way: A step-by-step guide


    Also: See the pinned threads here:

  3. Ransomware infection?

    Any files that are encrypted with MRCR1 Ransomware will have the the
    .MRCR1.PEGS1, .RARE1,
    .RMCM1
    or .MERRY extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename and leave files (ransome notes) named YOUR_FILES_ARE_DEAD.HTA as explained

    here
    . The ransom note instructs victims to contact the cyber-criminals at "L: *** Email address is removed for privacy ***" or "TELEGRAM @comodosecurity" to get payment instructions.

    You can submit samples of encrypted files and ransom notes 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 and ransom notes together provides a more positive match and helps to avoid false detections.

    Fabian Wosar released a decryptor tool for victims of this type of infection.

    There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where you can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.


    Most crypto malware ransomware is typically programmed to automatically remove itself...the malicious files responsible for the infection...after the encrypting is done since they are no longer needed. That explains why many security scanners
    do not find anything after the fact. The encrypted files do not contain malicious code so they are safe. Unfortunately, most victims do not realize they have been infected until the ransomware displays the ransom note and the files have already
    been encrypted. In some cases there may be no ransom note and discovery only occurs at a later time when attempting to open an encrypted file. As such, they don't know how long the malware was on the system before being alerted or if
    other malware was downloaded and installed along with the ransomware. If other malware was involved it could still be present so be sure to perform full scans with your anti-virus.
    Disinfection will not help with decryption of any files affected by the ransomware.

    If your antivirus did not detect and remove anything, additional scans should be performed with other security programs like

    Malwarebytes 3.0
    ,
    HitmanPro
    and
    Emsisoft Anti-Malware
    . You can also supplement your anti-virus or get a second opinion by performing an

    Online Virus Scan
    ...ESET is one of the more effective online scanners.
