ALERT - Ransomware attack

All my storages are encrypted.

I have Vmware Esx 6 and Esx 8.1 Essential

In the file name appears the name of an encryption company called https: // www msgsafe io

I have no relationship with that company.

Does anyone know her?

The attack started at 4.30 am GMT -3

Attached example of the state of a virtual machine.

Any idea would help.

Thank you

As your post needs moving to the correct area of the Communities, I have reported it to the moderators.

Your post has already been moved to the ESXi area.

The company behind the DNS-Domain is a mail hoster, so contacting them may not help, and the email address is likely used by the hackers themselves to extort money from you.
