Gebdp3k7bolalnd4.onion virus is detectable as a new version of notorious Onion (alternatively known as .onion file extension virus) ransomware group[1]. After encrypting users files with RSA algorithm, the ransomware opens up its graphic user‘s interface (GUI). There, a victim can choose from two options“ either to view files or proceed to next step. Afterward, he or she will be instructed to access Tor website and transfer an indicated number of bitcoins. Speaking of the current version, the malware is known to append several versions file extensions: .onion._, ext. js, and gebdp3k7bolalnd4.onion._. Interestingly, that the current version does not require using Tor, a browser which grants an ability to surf the web anonymously.

Once the encryption process is finished, the malware opens up the GUI and .html file where the malware informs users that the files have been encrypted. Furthermore, victims are encouraged to purchase specific decryption software — Gebdp3k7bolalnd4.onion Decrypter. Though it is identified as Cry128 as well, but the decrypter designed for the original version might not work. Note that even if it succeeds in deciphering your files, you might create more chances for future infiltration by the malware. Thus, there is no guarantee that the program functions properly and it will decrypt files completely. Later on, it suggests accessing three .onion websites to remit the payment. Since these domains grant anonymity, there is no source code on the website to track the perpetrators. Interestingly, victims do not need to download and install Tor browser. Additionally, all of encrypted files are by 36 bytes bigger than the original data. This peculiarity might be one of the hints to craft a decryption key. In any case, it is not recommended to meddle with this malware but remove Gebdp3k7bolalnd4.onion right away.

How to prevent from getting ransomware

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
