Welcome to our Dharma (.cezar Family) Decryptor Tool page where you will get information on how to decrypt Dharma ransomware.
Dharma Ransomware is one of the most widely spread Ransomware infections around the world. The Dharma (.cezar family) Decryptor has a complicated decryption process and that’s why there is no Dharma Decryptor released to the public yet from any Antivirus Company. Dharma Ransomware is not decryptable at the moment!
There are plenty of variants for Dharma (CrySiS) Ransomware and among them you can see files that are beeing encrypted and will have an <id>-<id with 8 random hexadecimal characters>.[<email>] followed by the .dharma, .wallet, .onion, .zzzzz, .cezar, .cesar, .arena, .cobra, .java, .write, .arrow, .bip, .combo, .cmb, .brrr, .gamma, .monro, .bkp, .btc, .bgtx, .boost, .waifu, .funny, .betta, vanss, .like, .gdb, .xxxxx, .lock, .adobe, .AUDIT, .cccmn, .tron, .back, .Bear, .fire, .myjob or .war extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename.
How Dharma (.cezar Family) infection got into my system in the first place?
Dharma Ransomware uses weakly RDP ports to compromise network access.
They can penetrate RDP in the following ways:
- By using Brute force techniques to existing RDP ports that are available in the website like Shodan
- By buying brute-forced credentials that are sold in sites like XDedic
- By using Phishing techniques to an employee so that they can gain control of their machine and then they can work with brute force techniques from inside the network of the company
Using his access to RDP, the hacker can then spread Dharma Ransomware everywhere in the network and it encrypts even backup files
In order for the Dharma Ransomware to be decrypted, you need the Dharma Decryption Tool that the hacker provides after you pay the ransom.
The Dharma Decryptor is complicated and needs caution when you use it.
Is the Dharma Decryptor Tool easy to use if you pay the ransom?
First of all, we need to clarify that we are writing about the recent Dharma Decryptor from the (.cezar Family) which is the latest (2018) version of the ransomware here.
When the hackers get their payment and the ransom is paid using bitcoins you rely on the “honesty” of the hacker to get your files back.
This means that sometimes the hacker will not cooperate and will just disappear with your money and you take the risk of this by paying the ransom demand.
The first thing you should expect is the Dharma Decryptor Scan tool, which will scan through your system to identify some keys from your system.
Below you can see the decryption tool in action, scanning for Dharma Encryption Keys that exist in your system:
After that a Scan Key is produced by your system, which contains the individual Dharma Encryption Keys.
Then you should send to the hacker the Dharma Encryption keys bundle and if the hacker is honest he will return to you with the Dharma Decryption Keys.
The problems occur when the hacker asks for a big amount of money, or if he lives in a different timezone (which is very often), if he cannot speak your language and if he is an amateur and doesn’t know how to handle his own Dharma Encryption tool or he cannot explain to you the process.
Of course, some negotiations do not go well and the hacker is aggressive or starts demanding more ransom to be paid and doesn’t release the final Dharma Decryption Keys.
Also sometimes the Dharma Ransomware is not correctly removed and we have seen clients being encrypted again because they misunderstood the decryption process of the Hacker.
We have also seen double encryptions from Dharma Ransomware with two different IDs and we have handled such cases successfully.
If you don’t have the relevant experience we can handle the negotiation with the hacker and the whole process, offering you peace of mind.
Lately, we have seen some cases that have been handled by our clients, where the original encrypted files have not been able to be decrypted because the client has done some things that shouldn’t be done, in his attempt to decrypt the files.
Any modification to the files should be prevented and also there are some things that you have to do prior the decryption to be sure that the decryption process should work successfully.
In some cases after Dharma Ransomware incident has occurred the hacker may demand 2 or 3 payments for a single computer, after your first payment and usually this is because you did something wrong, either with your files, your security, your antivirus or even with the Dharma Decryptor Tool and the Hacker might need to also pay the Developer of Dharma Ransomware 2-3 different Dharma Decryption Keys.
If you can invest in Ransomware Expert Services, then do so, as this will save you from a lot of trouble later on and will guarantee that at least you did what you could during the process and you didn’t destroy the capability of Dharma Decryption Tool operation.
Can I get a better price for Dharma Ransomware Decryption?
There is a possibility that we can help you achieve better price with the hacker that put the Dharma (.cezar family) Ransomware in your machine or we may contact some of our Dark Web contacts and get a better price for getting the Dharma Decryptor and the Dharma keys.
In any case, we believe that as of now, the only solutions available, include paying some kind of ransom to an unknown person using bitcoins.
You can try our Ransomware Incident Response team and have a chat with us before you decide what to do.
Step by step the Dharma Decryptor Tool in Action
Below you can find the instructions that a Hacker has provided during one of our clients with .adobe extension Dharma Ransomware Decryption process:
notice: before you start the decryption process – we recommend you to make a backup of ENCRYPTED files.
instruction for decryption:
1) Change all user passwords to harder.
2) Install strong antivirus like avg or eset – scan your infected machine. Protect your antivirus by a password.
3) BEFORE decrypting system check your autorun list(and also look at the register). You must delete the virus if you find it!
4) Reboot your machines(one by one) and look to Task Manager. Will the virus run again? If no – all is fine.
5) Scan application – https://www.sendspace.com/file/xxxxxx download this file and add it to white list in your antivirus
6) Run this application WITH ADMINISTRATOR RIGHTS
7) Scan local machine (don’t move your files – this may compromise the integrity of the decryption process)
8) Click the button “Save to file”
9) Send to us this file with request key
This is how the decryption process was done:
(Mention that this is just an example and not a step-by-step guide for all variants or the .adobe variant. We cannot guarantee that you will need to follow this instruction as every Dharma Ransomware incident is different. Ransomware processes are different every month and these screenshots may be different with what you will see in the .adobe Dharma Ransomware Instructions. We do not take any responsibility for your actions since you might render your files totally unencryptable if you follow these steps)
After the scanning process on your computer or computers you will see the Encryption Keys like this:
If everything goes well then you will send the Encryption Keys to the hacker and if you have negotiated correctly you might have your files back.
The hacker then sends you another key to complete the process and you might be happy enough to see your files being decrypted with the Dharma Decryptor tool, successfully.
If this process, along with the bitcoin transaction looks very complicated to you and you want us to handle all the Hacker Negotiation and provide you with guidance, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
If we handle your case we usually need 48 hours to get you your files back from Dharma Ransomware Incident.
