If your computer is locked by Decrypt Protect [MBL Advisory], and you are seeing a message like “You have lost control over your computer” or “You have 48 hours left to enter your payment” then your computer is infected with ransomware. With HitmanPro.Kickstart you can easily remove the ransomware but after removing you will see that all your files are encrypted.
The files that are encrypted are mainly, documents, videos, images, with the following extensions (.ddrw ,.pptm ,.dotm ,.xltx ,.text ,.docm ,.djvu ,.potx ,.jpeg ,.pptx ,.sldm ,.xlsm ,.sldx ,.xlsb ,.ppam ,.xlsx ,.ppsm ,.ppsx ,.docx ,.odp ,.eml ,.ods ,.dot ,.php ,.xla ,.pas ,.gif ,.mpg ,.ppt ,.bkf ,.sda ,.mdf ,.ico ,.dwg ,.mbx ,.sfx ,.mdb ,.zip ,.xlt).
After the encryption it will rename the files as a HTML file, with inside the original encrypted file. If you try to open any of these encrypted files, you will be redirect to the malcious web page, which is currently at xblblock.com, that will display the same screen of the “Decrypt Protect [MBL Advisory]” and will try to persuade you to pay the ransom in the form of a MoneyPak voucher.
The Decrypt Protect virus (ransomware) encrypts all files with a RC6 encryption and a simple XOR obfuscation. Fabian Wosar (Emsisoft) has developed a decrypter that you can use to decrypt the encrypted files.
