Hi chimike,

The forum is for the product of Norton Family, a parental control program.  I'll forward the thread to Norton Security forum for better exposure.

Thanks

First of all to avoid any and all ransomware it is best to have all your files backed up either externally or the cloud. Did you do this? You can restore all your files if they were backed up. If not please follow these steps.

Secondly, it's also good to have a security program that is effective against blocking ransomeware, or is effective against allowing ransomeware to encrypt your files.

See if they have a decryptor for Odin:

No antivirus and I repeat no antivirus is 100% effective. You can have all the security in the world and one day it will fail. You can try to prevent all you want but the best advice is to be prepared. That means backing up your system. What if your hard drive fails? You will loose everything anyways. Malware, adware, viruses and ransomware change on an hourly basis. The second you have a cure for it the hackers recode it and make 20 more. It is a never ending cycling.

I agree 200% backing up is critical. I backup to two seperate external hard drives that I keep disconnected from my PC. (I had an IOMEGA Ext. HD Fail on me after 7 months, that's why I have a redundant backup.)

There are security suites whose behavior blockers block ODIN and other Ransomware and that also block the PUPS/Trojan BrowserAdware Hijackers that have hit some here.

Norton Security has a behavior blocker. It is called "Sonar". I repair pc's and make house calls for malware removal all the time. I have seen pc's protected with Kaspersky, Norton, Eset, Avira, BitDefender, AVG, Avast, Panda, MSE, Webroot and Comodo. They all ended up infected. You can harden your system with other programs but again the best thing to do for ransomware is to have your pc fully backed up.

I have a question about restoring after ransomware.

Assume I have my files backed up--what next?

Can I boot my system far enough to attempt to remove the malware/ransomeware?

Can I do a system reset or refresh?

What?

Re: ODINE ramsomeware

I have a clean system image handy. I also have all my files and folders backed up. Both externally and the cloud. When you make a system image you also create a bootdisk. This will allow you to boot your pc off the disk and then mount the stored system image. I use Aomei Backupper. Easeus Todo and Macrium Reflect are other free ones. I am one who honestly does not care if I get infected. I image my pc's about once a week. Anything goes wrong I can mount the image and be back to normal within a few hours like nothing ever happened. Norton Bootable recovery and Kaspersky Recovery are both designed to scan your pc outside of Windows. I have encountered several ransomware infected pc's. You cannot boot into Windows nor Safe mode. The only way is boot off a recovery disk which uses Linux and remove the infection that way. Once the infection is removed you can plug in your external hard drive and copy the files back over. Or download them from the cloud. A system image can backup your entire partitions. So when you mount the image everything comes back. Think of it as a mirror image of your pc stored on an external hard drive. It also saves you if your hard drive ever fails. Replace the failed drive and mount the stored image. A system image is not only handy for if and when there is a malware attack but also handy if your OS becomes corrupted.
