Sometimes ransomware operators do not leave any ransomware note.
In such cases the contact name of the operator is on the actual files.
When analysing the file names we can see that you can find a unique identifier for each encryption source plus the operator ID.
Its very important to enumerate all IDs when dealing with the ransomware attack.
An example is this: instroctions_For_clients.docx.id[BAF3BBED-2822].[firstname.lastname@example.org].eight
Unfortunately Phobos Ransomware Operators in generic are one of the worst group when examining reliability.
Operators according to our experience do not have a good reputation in general.
Also we have seen cases that the operators take your money and go away.
Some attackers have a good reputation for providing working Phobos decryptors. Others are known as scammers and will never provide a decryption tool.
Unfortunately, hackers will receive the ransom payment and get away with it, leaving the victim in cold waters.
First of all don’t panic, since we have many options to help you.
