Budak Ransomware is one of the subtypes of STOP Ransomware (or DJVU Ransomware and has all the characteristics of this family of viruses. Malware blocks access to the data on victim's computers by encrypting it with AES encryption algorithm. STOP Ransomware is one of the longest living ransomware. First infections were registered in December 2017. Budak Ransomware is yet another generation of it and appends .budak extension to encrypted files. Good news is: there is a possibility for successful file decryption. However, several conditions should match. If affected PC was not connected to the internet, or malicious server, that generates keys was not accessible at the moment of infection there is a tool called STOPDecrypter, can decrypt files, encrypted by Budak Ransomware. We provide download link and instructions on how to use it below in the article. There are also some alternative ways to recover your photos, documents, videos, etc.
Phobos Ransomware is a virus, that encrypts user files using AES encryption algorithm and demands ~$3000 for decryption. Ransomware adds .phobos, .mamba, .phoenix, .actin, .actor, .blend, .adage .acton, .com, .adame, .acute, .karlos or .Frendi extensions to encoded files and makes them inaccessible. In order to confuse users and researchers Phobos Ransomware uses file-modification patterns and ransom notes similar to very wide-spread Dharma Ransomware. Especially after design change in January 2019, when they started to look like identically. However, there are certain differences in file-markers and appearance. After contacting the developers via one of the provided e-mails, they demand $3000 in BitCoins for decryption to be paid in 6 hours. Otherwise, the cost of decryption will increase up to $5000. At the moment automated decryptors for Phobos Ransomware do not exist. There is no proof, that malefactors send decryptors to the victims, that is why we do not recommend paying the ransom. Instead, try using instructions on this page to recover encrypted files. File-recovery software can restore some files from your hard-drive.
Sodinokibi Ransomware (a.k.a. BlueBackground Ransomware or REvil Ransomware) is disruptive cryptovirus, that encrypts user data using Salsa20 algorithm with the ECDH-based key exchange method, and then requires a ransom around 0.475–0.950 BTC to return the files. In other words, if the amount is set at $2500, then without paying within 7 days, it doubles to $5000. It appeared in April 2019 for the first time. Inside the JSON configuration file is a list of 1079 domains. Sodinokibi establishes a connection with each domain of this list by generating a URL using a domain generation algorithm, although, they are not Sodinokibi servers. Follow the detailed guide on this page to remove Sodinokibi Ransomware and decrypt your files in Windows 10, 8/8.1, Windows 7.
STOP Ransomware (in other classification DJVU Ransomware) is harmful malware, that blocks access to user's files by encrypting them and requires a buyout. The virus uses unbreakable encryption algorithm (AES-256 with RSA-1024 key) and demands ransom to be paid in BitCoins. However, due to some programming mistakes, there are cases when your files can be decrypted. Version of STOP Ransomware, that we are considering today adds .besub, .godes, .cezor or .lokas extensions to encrypted files. After the encryption it presents file _readme.txt to the victim. This text file contains information about the infection, contact details and false statements about decryption guarantees. The infection with STOP Ransomware is very unfortunate, but you should keep calm. Do not succumb to provocations, and do not trust the hackers. In most cases, they will never return your files after paying the ransom. Think of possible backups and duplicates of the affected data, that may be stored elsewhere. There is a great called STOPDecrypter, developed by Michael Gillespie, that, probably, will help you to decrypt sensitive information.
CryptON Ransomware or Nemesis Ransomware or X3M Ransomware is one of the most dangerous and wide-spread ransomware families. Currently, there are multiple successors of initial virus and several deviations built on another platforms. Cry9, Cry36 and Cry128 Ransomware came from this series. Virus uses mix of AES-256, RSA-2048 and SHA-256 encryption algorithms Latest discovered version is actually called CryptON Ransomware and uses .email@example.com extension for affected files. Ransom demand from 0.2 to 1 BitCoin for decryption. It is not recommended to pay the ransom as there are no guarantee malefactors will send decryption key. Use instructions on this page to remove CryptON Ransomware and decrypt .firstname.lastname@example.org, _x3m or _locked files from Windows 10, Windows 8 or Windows 7.
