Everbe 2.0 (.NOT_OPEN Files variant) Ransomware – Inspection

Everbe 2.0 is a virus that encrypts your files and places an .txt file, with instructions inside it, about the infected computer system. The extortionists want you to pay a ransom fee for the alleged restoration of your files.

Everbe 2.0 ransomware could make entries in the Windows Registry to achieve persistence, and could launch or repress processes in a Windows environment. Such entries are typically designed in a way to launch the virus automatically with each start of the Windows operating system.

After encryption the Everbe 2.0 virus shows a ransom message located inside the following file:

  • !_HOW_RECOVERY_FILES_!.txt

You can see the contents of the !_HOW_RECOVERY_FILES_!.txt file, from the following screenshot given here:

The ransom note states the following:

NOT_OPEN LOCKER

HELLO, DEAR FRIEND!

1. [ ALL YOUR FILES HAVE BEEN ENCRYPTED! ] Your files are NOT damaged! Your files are modified only. This modification is reversible.
The only 1 way to decrypt your files is to receive the decryption program.

2. [ HOW TO RECOVERY FILES? ] To receive the decryption program write to email: [email protected]
And in subject write your ID: ID-[REDACTED] We send you full instruction how to decrypt all your files.
If we do not respond within 24 hours, write to the email: [email protected]

3. [ FREE DECRYPTION! ] Free decryption as guarantee.
We guarantee the receipt of the decryption program after payment.
To believe, you can give us up to 3 files that we decrypt for free.
Files should not be important to you! (databases, backups, large excel sheets, etc.)

The note of the Everbe 2.0 ransomware virus states that your files are encrypted. You are demanded to pay money to allegedly restore your files. However, you should NOT under any circumstances pay any ransom sum. Your files may not get recovered, and nobody could give you a guarantee for that. Adding to that, giving money to cybercriminals will most likely motivate them to create more ransomware viruses or commit different criminal activities. That may even result to you getting your files encrypted once again.

Everbe 2.0 (.NOT_OPEN Files variant) Ransomware – Encryption

What is known for the encryption process of the Everbe 2.0 ransomware is that every file that gets encrypted will become simply unusable. All encrypted files will receive the “.[[email protected]].NOT_OPEN].NOT_OPEN” extension appended to them. Some researchers argue whether the AES or DES encryption algorithm is used for the file encryption.

The following files are known to become encrypted by this ransomware:

→.doc, .docx, .jpg, .lnk, .pdf, .xls, xlsx

The full list with the targeted extensions of files which are sought to get encrypted is currently unknown. However, if it becomes known, it will be posted here as an update to the article.

The files used most by users and which are probably encrypted are from the following categories:

  • Audio files
  • Video files
  • Document files
  • Image files
  • Backup files
  • Banking credentials, etc

The Everbe 2.0 cryptovirus could be set to erase all the Shadow Volume Copies from the Windows operating system with the help of the following command:

→vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet

In case the above-stated command is executed that will make the effects of the encryption process more efficient. That is due to the fact that the command eliminates one of the prominent ways to restore your data. If a computer device was infected with this ransomware and your files are locked, read on through to find out how you could potentially restore some files back to their normal state.
