A rather anonymous account reached out to me on Twitter asking to check out a “scary & really nasty” sample.
It turned out to be RedEye ransomware, a new strain or variant by the same creator of Annabelle ransomware, which I discovered in February earlier this year.
This ransomware is named “RedEye” by the author “iCoreX“.

The author, iCoreX, claims to have created Jigsaw, Annabelle, and now the RedEye ransomware – whether the former is true or not, I’ll leave in the middle.

If tools such as the registry editor are not working, run Rkill in safe mode first.
You may also try to restore the MBR first, and consequently attempt to restore files using Shadow Volume Copies. For example, a tool such as Shadow Explorer can be of assistance, or read the tutorial here.
