The Dharma ransomware family hosts some of the most prominent viruses that have been attacking computer systems since 2016. Like most virus families, Dharma ransomware extorts victims by encrypting their files and demanding a ransom payment.

This family has a lot of variants that can usually be identified by the india.com domain in the contact email. The ransomware also appends file names using thefilename.(email).dharma. Some examples of virus strains from this family include:

  • Bip

BIP Ransomware appends a .bip extension to encrypted files. This iteration of the Dharma ransomware encrypts files with the following extension: Filename.id{ID-here}.[restoresales@airmail.cc].bip.

BIP malware also leaves a FILES ENCRYPTED.txt file behind with instructions for the system users to complete a ransom payment and recover their files.

  • Combo

The .COMBO variation of the Dharma ransomware family came into existence in late July 2018. This particular virus appends the .COMBO extension onto encrypted file names. Like other Dharma ransomware variants, the .COMBO malware leaves a note for the victims of the attack to complete a payment. Hackers threaten the safety and privacy of the users’ information and this pressures the victims to pay the ransom. It is, however, not a guarantee that you will get your data back after making the payment. At EADH, we can help you recover your .COMBO files without paying the ransom and risking more attacks.

Dharma.combo malware infects users through Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) ports. If your organization’s network is exposed to the wider internet without reliable forms of protection, hackers can easily plan ransomware in the system.The ransomware can also infect users through email attachments. The emails, usually with attached Word documents, take advantage of the micro feature in Word and drop malicious payloads within the system as soon as they are opened.

Once you realize you have been infected by this malware, your top priority should be to contact recovery experts to perform an overview of the situation. Contact Ransomware Expert today for quick and reliable ransomware recovery and protection services.

JAVA ransomware attaches the .java extension and a unique identification number to encrypted file names. Like the other malware in the Dharma family, the .java virus also leaves a ransom note that informs and guides victims towards getting their data back.

The average ransom demand from a java ransomware attack falls between $1000 and $2000 payable in Bitcoins.

  • Gamma

GAMMA ransomware attacks by appending the .GAMMA extension to encrypted file names.Gamma attacks were first observed in 2016. Since then, the developers behind this malware have released more than 15 different variants of the Gamma ransomware.

Ransomware FAQ's

Ransomware is classified as a type of malware that interferes with a computer system by limiting or completely cutting off a user’s access to their files until a ransom is paid.

Crypto-ransomware, for instance, takes control of a system by encrypting certain file types and only revealing the decryption key to the user after they electronically pay the ransom.

In 2017 alone, the number of cases involving ransomware attacks went up 600 percent. The majority of these attacks come from Remote Desktop Services (RDP) and misleading emails that have the potential to turn entire companies into victims.

  1. A pop-up message on your screen informing you that your system is encrypted to you need to pay a ransom to get your data back.
  2. Your system is locked down or is running very slowly.
  3. You cannot open your files or run applications in the system
  4. All your files have been renamed and saved under a new extension.
  5. Your antivirus has been disabled.


First, there is a great chance that you will lose your money. Second, making the payment is illegal under the ‘Proceed of Crime Act.’ Lastly, making the payment means supporting the criminals behind the attack and indirectly contributing to more attacks.
