New version of petya / goldeneye?

Recommended Posts



I just got a PC of a friend with a new (?) version of petya. It isn't called petya anymore but "Goldeneye". I has a orange flashing logo instead of the green / red flashing logo it has in previous version. He got a mail this morning with a "job application" that he opened :( I attached a picture of the prompt.


Is it a new version or am I just to blind to find forum threads for it?


Thanks for your help.

Hello @l3king and :welcome:

Here is more information about the infection.

Petya Ransomware Returns with GoldenEye Version, Continuing James Bond Theme

Goldeneye has been reactivated

At this time I'm not aware of any way to recover the files. Hopefully the user had a backup of their data.

Backup Software

Let me know what you'd like to do. If possible, my recommendation would be to Fdisk, Format, and reinstall Windows but we can attempt to clean it if you like, but we cannot recover the encrypted data.


Thank you
