Ransomware is malicious software, designed to block data access in order to extort money. As a form of malware, ransomware is most often used to infiltrate devices through infected emails or links that, in turn, recognize and take advantage of vulnerabilities in the operating system and installed third-party software.

Hello Experts,

I am using a watchgaurd T70 and would like to set up two subnets on it. I would like to have the two subnets to have the ability to talk to each other as well. If anyone has information on how to do so, I would appreciate it.

Thank you

Hi all.  Just wanted to reach out and see what people are doing out there to prevent ransomware from encrypting data.  More of a proactive role.   Anyone?

Thanks!

Hi all!  I figured I would just throw this out there.  For small environments where they are not ready to invest in a server,  or even a RAID controller with mirrored drives for a dedicated Win10 computer "Acting" as a server.  What do you guys like for the best backup software.  It has to be super intuitive for people.  Acronis is great, but it totally throws people off I think, and although you can do an image backup, and restore individual files.  Has anyone seen anything that is a bit more intuitive that can do both file level and image backups.  So if you have a catastrophic drive failure you can boot from a flash drive replace the drive and put the image back, schedule image backups say monthly, but do a daily file level?
Thanks guys!

I'm trying to boot a HP Prodesk 400G5 PC to a Legacy Acronis 2016 USB. However I get the following issue every time Acronis loads:

"Acronis Loader: Unable to run Boot Menu. Press Enter to continue..."

I then press enter, it flashes the blue Acronis splash screen and then shows

"Please press enter to activate this console..."

I have tried:
- ensuring that secureboot is disabled and legacy is enabled.
- disabling UEFI in Boot order
- disabling fast boot

I have also loaded Acronis on other devices and can use it no problem elsewhere. However any HP Prodesk 400G5 I have tried it will not load.

Any ideas on what could cause this?

Thanks

Hello.  I am managing a small network with 2 DC controllers.  A few months ago a ransomware hit our network and encrypted all files in Sysvol.  We managed to recreate Group Policies.  Now I have a message from the Server Manager Dashboard belong to 2 nodes and 1 vm server saying that "Online - Data retrieval failure occurred".  How can I fix this problem?

I want to create an image from a laptop hard drive that contains windows 10.
I encountered a  situation that when I start Win PE and want to use Acronis backup - for some reason I cant see any HDD...
Tried to change BIOS legacy/UEFI and Secure boot - nothing helped.

Any ideas?

I have a WatchGuard M370 Firebox with L2TP and IPSec.  My users login to the firebox and then to a terminal server or in some cases their desktops. It's basically a 2 factor system, they login to the firebox and then to the server - I want to keep that.   I have a bunch of users who take home laptops and work at home and I'm wondering if there's a way to have my Group Policy enforced while they are on VPN.  My VPN is a dmz so it's not actually part of the network,  however, if you type and IP address chances are you'll get where you need to go.  SO for example my home users connect to a terminal server in the DMZ.  They are using Laptops we created here, but if they are not acknowledged on the domain after 60 days I'm having to put them back on the domain because the trust relationship fails.  I want to try to avoid this.  Is there a way to do it?

Please let me know what to do . backups are working fine when i shut down the vm .

Just saw an email in my gmail spam which claims to be from someone who claims to have installed some malware from a visit on an adult web site.  He has part of a password phrase that I use but I have a unique password for each site.

He's obviously asking for money in bitcoin.
Claims to also have video footage of what I've watched and from my macbook air camera.  I doubt the latter as its a mac and no light comes on my camera.  I have two step verification on my gmail and the email address he correctly has is a forwarding domain name e.g. peter@neverland.com forwards to petersurname@gmail.com

Suggestions as to what I should do?  I cant identify the web site where it was taken from, could be a hack from a web site Im not sure.  What good mac detection tools are there?

I have problem in my esxi 6.0. I am using acronis 12.5 and in morning all vms got error and one of my vm is not booting.

Unable to delete virtual disk : Error caused by file /vmfs/volumes/15245567-124521-424-1234567dfad/myfile.vmdk

Open in new window


I've been on support with Acronis but they are not able to restore the VM or delete the old one and restore the entire VM on the same datastore.

I am able to create files and move the vmdk file but not able to delete from them.

How can I restore my VMs?

How do I do this in CLI?

I have tried
Extended IP access list 120
    10 permit tcp any eq 4105 any eq 4105
    20 permit tcp any host "external IP" eq 4105
Extended IP access list 121
    10 permit tcp any eq 4117 any eq 4117
    20 permit tcp any host "external IP" eq 4117
Extended IP access list 122
    10 permit tcp any eq 4118 any eq 4118
    20 permit tcp any host "external IP" eq 4118


Thanks in advance

My current setup is this- I use a Watchguard firewall.
Interface 0 is external.
Interface 1 is trusted-192.168.1.1/24
Interface 2 is trusted-192.168.3.1/24
There is a VPN to another office that is 192.168.2.1/24

Our phone system is 192.168.1.5
If I plug a phone into the .2 network the phone will connect up without an issue.
If I plug a phone into the .3 network the phone will NOT connect up.

I assume there needs to be a policy in place to get the two to talk. I am unsure of what the policy needs to be.

Is there any file decryption tools for paradise ransomeware infested files with .STUB extension?

I've come into work this morning to find over 50% of our network file shares have an .IGAMI file extension.

I'm not able to find any information on this ransomware online. I've run all the usual clean up tools and currently recovering from backups.

I'd like to know firstly more about this virus, and secondly how to trace it effectively on the network to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Thanks in advance.

When I use Acronis True Image to restore a disk image to dissimilar hardware, I cannot see the destination disk, although it is visible in the previous screen, where I choose the item to be restored.

I need the .inf file for a WD hard drive WD5000LPLX in order to run Acronis Universal Restore.   I have looked on the WD website and also in Device Manager under drivers, but I cannot find the .inf file.   Acronis needs this in order to restore to different hardware.
