How to remove Dharma-ETH Ransomware and decrypt .ETH files

Standard

Dharma-ETH Ransomware is new generation of high-risk Crysis-Dharma-Cezar ransomware family, particularly, its Dharma variation. It was named after the extension it appends to encrypted files: .ETH. In fact, virus adds complex suffix, that consists of several parts: e-mail address, unique 8-digit identification number (completely random) and .ETH extension. In the end, affected files get complex suffix, that looks like this – .id-{8-digit-id}.[{email-address}].ETH. Ransom notes do not contain information about the amount users need to pay to return the files. There is also no information about encryption algorithms it uses. However, from the experience of previous infections of this type, we can say it, probably, uses AES or RSA-2048 encryption and will try to rip you off on a sum from $500 to $1500, that have to be paid in Monero, Dash or BTC (BitCoins).

How to remove Dharma-KARLS Ransomware and decrypt .KARLS files

Standard

Dharma-KARLS Ransomware is new virulent file-encryption threat, built on well-known platform of Crysis-Dharma-Cezar ransomware family. Unlike other variations, this version adds .KARLS extension to encrypted files. Actually, Dharma-KARLS Ransomware creates complicated appendix, that consists of unique user id, developer’s e-mail address and .KARLS suffix, from which it got its name. The template of filename modification looks like this: file called 1.doc will be converted to 1.doc.id-{8-digit-id}.[{email-address}].KARLS. Authors of Dharma-KARLS Ransomware can extort from $500 to $5000 ransom in BTC (BitCoins) for decryption. Using cryptocurrency and TOR-hosted payment websites makes it impossible to track the payee. Besides, victims of such viruses often get scammed, and malefactors don’t send any keys even after paying the ransom. Unfortunately, manual or automatic decryption is impossible unless ransomware was developed with mistakes or has certain execution errors, flaws or vulnerabilities.

There is still a chance decryption tool will be released by antivirus companies or security enthusiasts.
