Belonging to Dharma ransomware family, Qbtex is a high-risk ransomware discovered by Jakub Kroustek. As with most of ransomware infections, Qbtex infiltrates the system and encrypts most of stored files. While doing so, this malware appends filenames with ".qbtex" extension, as well as victim's unique ID and developers' email address (e.g., "sample.jpg" would be renamed to something like "sample.jpg.id-1E857D00.[1btc@decryption.biz].qbtex"). Compromised data instantly becomes unusable. Following successful encryption, Qbtex opens a pop-up window and drops a text file named "RETURN FILES.txt" on victim's desktop.
