.3dm, .3g2, .3gp, .7zip, .aaf, .accdb, .aep, .aepx, .aet, .ai, .aif, .as, .as3, .asf, .asp, .asx, .avi, .bmp, .c, .class, .cpp, .cs, .csv, .dat, .db, .dbf, .doc, .docb, .docm, .docx, .dot, .dotm, .dotx, .dwg, .dxf, .efx, .eps, .fla, .flv, .gif, .h, .idml, .iff, .indb, .indd, .indl, .indt, .inx, .jar, .java, .jpeg, .jpg, .js, .m3u, .m3u8, .m4u, .max, .mdb, .mid, .mkv, .mov, .mp3, .mp4, .mpa, .mpeg, .mpg, .msg, .pdb, .pdf, .php, .plb, .pmd, .png, .pot, .potm, .potx, .ppam, .ppj, .pps, .ppsm, .ppsx, .ppt, .pptm, .pptx, .prel, .prproj, .ps, .psd, .py, .ra, .rar, .raw, .rb, .rtf, .sdf, .sdf, .ses, .sldm, .sldx, .sql, .svg, .swf, .tif, .txt, .vcf, .vob, .wav, .wma, .wmv, .wpd, .wps, .xla, .xlam, .xll, .xlm, .xls, .xlsb, .xlsm, .xlsx, .xlt, .xltm, .xltx, .xlw, .xml, .xqx, .xqx, .zip.
The Robin Hood And Family Ransomware delivers a ransom note that claims that it has a backup of the files and can help restore them if the victim pays a ransom that is close to 1000 USD, and should be paid in Bitcoin. It is obvious, however, that the Robin Hood And Family Ransomware does not upload data to an external server or back up the victim's files in any way. The Robin Hood And Family Ransomware delivers its ransom note in the form of a text file named 'YOU ARE HACKED - READ ME.txt,' that is delivered to the victim's computer. The Robin Hood And Family Ransomware ransom note contains the following message:
'So, what the fuck just happened!!!???
You are hacked! In the past few hours, days, weeks or even monts (who knows how long) we have backed up all data from your computer. After that, well, we permanently deleted all your files. And no, you can't restore data from recycle bin.
How to retrieve your data? It's very easy, you have to pay 0.1 BTC (Bitcoin) to the folowing BITCOIN ADDRESS:
Note: Be careful with uppercase and lowercase letters in the address.
After payment send the code Pml2N6nHjK to the following email address: email@example.com
The code Pml2N6nHjK is a unique ID of your computer.
After we receive 0.1 Bitcoin we will send you via email web address and login parameters where you can download your data.
Don't worry, we are taking care of our reputation.
