Ransomware InsaneCrypt or Everbe 1.0 is a ransomware family based on an open source project. This ransomware family is distributed through spam and hacked into Remote Desktop Services, but this is not yet confirmed.
The good news is that you can decode these ransomware variants for free using the decoder created by Michael Gillespie and Maxime Meignan. To use the decoder, the victim only needs to have an encrypted file and an unencrypted version of the same file. This can often be achieved through the templates provided by Windows.
Variations with the following extensions can be decoded with this tool.
.[email].insane .[email].DEUSCRYPT .[email].deuscrypt .[email].Tornado .[email].twist .[email].everbe .[email].embrace .[email].pain .[email].volcano
Unfortunately, this decoder will not decode their ransomware Everbe 2.0 variants because the version's encryption feature has no weaknesses to exploit.
