Ransomeware Matrix ending with .JB78


New member
Hello everyone.

I have a big problem right now: we have been affected by a matrix ransomware. Also the affected port (RDP) is disabled now.

Why I think it is matrix, because of its ending .jb78 and his (hacker) email jamesbaker78 https://bbs.360.cn/archiver/tid-15799309.html chinese translation -> https://www.deepl.com/translator#zh/en/家族:Matrix 被加密文件后缀:jb78 黑客邮箱:JamesBaker78@criptex.com

Does anyone have an idea how I can decrypt the files - should it even work. At best, I'd appreciate some feedback
