What is GandCrab2 ransomware
GandCrab2 is a new version of GandCrab ransomware. For the first variant of GandCrab, which have been using .GDCB extension for encrypted files, the free decryptor was released last week. GandCrab2 upends .CRAB extension to encrypted files and supposedly is not decryptable by Bitdefender’s free decryption tool. At the time of writing there is still almost no information about GandCrab2 and it is not known whether it can be decrypted for free or not. If GandCrab2 have encrypted your files, you may wait until more data is released about this ransomware or try the below methods of file recovery. Don’t delete your ransom note (CRAB-DECRYPT.txt) and don’t allow your antivirus software to delete it, as it may be needed for successful decryption in the future.
