firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware displays a note claiming a victim’s data has been encrypted with two asymmetric encryption algorithms and a cryptosystem called Rabbit. To put it simply, it means you will not be able to recover your data without special decryption tools, which, sadly, only the malware’s developers might have. Nonetheless, we do not advise putting up with their demands. It is said you would have to pay to get decryption tools, and we have no doubt you would be asked to do so before getting decryption tools. Therefore, there seems to be a possibility you could get scammed. Of course, it is up to you to decide what is the best course of action.

Therefore, it might start enciphering targeted files without any delays. The targeted files should be personal data that would most likely have value to a victim, for example, photos, documents, archives, and so on. To our knowledge, the malicious application not only encrypts such files but also appends an extension made from 8 random characters. For instance, a file called document.docx could turn into document.docx.74385216 after it becomes encrypted. Soon after locking all targeted data, the malware ought to place files called FIX_Instructions.hta and FIX_Instructions.txt on an infected device. Both of the files should show ransom note that explains how a user’s files were encrypted and how they can be restored.
Needless to say, the malicious applications developers ought to demand ransom in exchange for decryption tools.

Provided you do not want to take any chances, you could ignore the displayed ransom notes and eliminate firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware.
