Constantly hit with Ransom viruses

Recommended Posts

I run Malwarebytes premium and windows defender together.  I have been hit with Ransomware and other viruses that are usually blocked before they destroy everything, but still makes it a huge PITA.  These are hitting a computer that is never on the internet, except its used to remote into via remote desktop.  I got frustrated and completely replace the computer and it's still happening (moved data over).  Despite not being on the internet, Malwarebytes  is constantly blocking websites according to the log.  Just looking for help in where I can look and what I can do to prevent this!  Any help would be great.  Thanks!

Please re-run FRST, but this time, only check the "Addition.txt" option under "Optional Scan", and make sure that every options under "Whitelist" are checked. Because right now the logs are quite big and it'll be harder to go through them as I don't need a lot of information they contain.

In situations where we don't know what the issue is, yes it's true that more information is better. But in your case, we have a pretty good idea of what's happening, so there's no need for it :) According to the encrypted file names I can see in your logs, you've been hit with a variant of the Dharma Ransomware.


Unfortunately, there's no way to decrypt files encrypted by the variant you have been hit with for free.

Here, let's see if the FRST fix can take care of everything in one go.

Follow the instructions below to execute a fix on your system using FRST, and provide the log in your next reply.

  • Download the attached fixlist.txt file, and save it on your Desktop (or wherever your FRST.exe/FRST64.exe executable is located);
  • Right-click on the FRST executable and select Spcusrh.pngRun as Administrator (for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 users);
  • Click on the Fix button;
  • On completion, a message will come up saying that the fix has been completed and it'll open a log in Notepad;
  • Copy and paste its content in your next reply;

I will have to wait and see.  The last website blocks were at 5:04am this morning, I will let you know tomorrow.  But hopefully ok.  REALLY appreciate your help.  I have another computer just like it that got hit the same way.  Should I start a new thread for that one?
