ETH Ransomware

Posted: March 4, 2021

The criminals using the Dharma Ransomware continue to be very active, and they regularly release slightly modified variants of the infamous file-locker. One of the most active members of the Dharma Ransomware family is called the ETH Ransomware and, unfortunately, it uses a flawless file-locking mechanism impossible to crack via free utilities. If the ETH Ransomware infects a computer successfully, it will encrypt a large portion of the files it finds on the hard drive. In addition to encrypting data, the ETH Ransomware also will:

  • Append the extension '.id-<VICTIM ID>.[Enigma1crypt@aol.com].ETH' to locked files.
  • Drop the ransom note 'FILES ENCRYPTED.txt.'
  • Disable the System Restore, and purge the Shadow Volume Copies. This makes data recovery a more difficult task.

The criminals behind the ETH Ransomware ask their victims to pay some Bitcoin and promise to provide them with a working decryptor as soon as this demand is met. We assure you that it is a terrible idea to trust ETH Ransomware's creators. Instead of trying to buy suspicious software off of them, you should run an up-to-date anti-virus scanner to eliminate the ETH Ransomware entirely. Once the Trojan is gone for good, you can start restoring files from a backup, or experiment with alternative data recovery options.
