If you think that cybercriminals should have a hard time executing CLUB Ransomware within your system, think again. Is your system protected by the best security software? Have all security updates been installed, and all vulnerabilities been patched? Have you been extra cautious about the files you downloaded and the emails you interacted with? Are your RDP channels secure and impenetrable? If you have answered no to at least one of these questions, cybercriminals might have little to no trouble infecting your system. Our team of researchers suggests that you take appropriate actions immediately to secure your system. Is it too late, and you already need to delete CLUB Ransomware from your Windows operating system? If that is the case, it is most likely that you are currently most worried about the decryption of your personal files. There are a few things you can do to try to salvage them, and we talk about them in our report. We also talk about how to remove the malicious infection.

RPD vulnerabilities, malicious downloaders, and spam emails are known to be used for the distribution of ransomware in most cases. Spam emails, of course, take the cake, as the majority of malware in this world is distributed with the help of clever messages. That is how LCK Ransomware, 8800 Ransomware, ROGER Ransomware, and many other clones of CLUB Ransomware might have invaded Windows systems as well. Malware scanners and removers usually identify them as Crysis Ransomware or Dharma Ransomware, as these are the names of the original malware that gave way to hundreds of new clones. Although these threats are generally identical, there are a few things that are unique to every one of them. When it comes to CLUB Ransomware, “.id-{ID code}.[admin@stelsdatas.com].club” is the extension that gets added to the corrupted files. The ID code is always different, and, as you can see, an email address is included too. This is another thing that is unique to this particular infection.

Once CLUB Ransomware is done encrypting your personal files, it opens a file named “FILES ENCRYPTED.txt” and also a window to deliver a message. According to it, files cannot be read because they were encrypted, and now the only thing you can do is email admin@stelsdatas.com or admin@stelsdatas.club. Without a doubt, if you email your attackers, they will push you to pay for a decryptor. Well, does this decryptor work? There is just no way of knowing that because victims of ransomware are not generally given decryptors even if they fulfill the presented demands. Yes, if you communicate with the attackers and pay the ransom, you are unlikely to get the decryptor and restore your files. So, what are you supposed to do? Replace the encrypted files if you have backup copies. It is always a good idea to store copies of files in a secure drive (whether online or a physical drive) because there are tons of infections that can delete, wipe, and encrypt them. Another option is to employ the Rakhni Decryptor. Unfortunately, we cannot vouch for its efficacy because we do not know how quickly it is updated to work for new variants of Crysis/Dharma Ransomware.

We hope that you have no trouble restoring files using a free decryptor or replacing them using your own copies, but you have to figure out how to remove CLUB Ransomware as well, and doing that could be problematic. First of all, we cannot tell you where to look for the {random name}.exe file of this malware because it could be anywhere. Even its name could be random. So, we believe that you should remove the infection manually only if you have experience and are able to identify malicious files. What’s the alternative? Installing anti-malware software, and we strongly recommend this alternative even if you are experienced. This is the software that you need if you want to keep your system guarded against malware in the future, and it also can automatically delete CLUB Ransomware from the computer too. Of course, you must not forget to be cautious even after you secure your system.

  1. Delete the file named FILES ENCRYPTED.txt.
