Threat Database Ransomware Xcmb Ransomware

Xcmb Ransomware

Xcmb Ransomware is the name of a ransomware threat that has as its main goal to make useless the files stored on a targeted computer. The Xcmb Ransomware actions are the same as other ransomware from its family - the STOP/Djvu Ransomware family - dropped onto a machine, it will start encrypting the majority of the files stored on. Then, it will demand the payment of a fee for their potential recovery. The name of the files encrypted by the Xcmb Ransomware will be changed because it will append '.Xcmb' as a file extension to them. The Xcmb Ransomware will drop a text file carrying the ransom note in every folder containing the encrypted data. The name of this text file is '_readme.txt.'

The text file presents the terms and conditions you need to follow to recover data. Here’s the text of the ransom note:

The demanded ransom amount is set at $980, as we can see on the ransom note. However, if you contact the hackers within the next 72 hours after the infection, the fee will be reduced to $490. However, even if you do pay the ransom, chances are that you will not get the decryption key because the cybercriminals may not fulfill their promises. That is why it is highly advised not to pay the ransom.

The best way to get your files back after a ransomware attack is by using an external backup. The removal of the threat from your computer should be done by a dedicated anti-malware program. Otherwise, the Xcmb Ransomware may encrypt your recently recovered files all over again.
