Bleeping Computer: Black Ruby Ransomware Skips Victims in Iran and Adds a Miner for Good Measure

“A new ransomware was discovered this week by MalwareHunterTeam called Black Ruby. This ransomware will encrypt the files on a computer, scramble the file name, and then append the BlackRuby extension. To make matters worse, Black Ruby will also install a Monero miner on the computer that utilizes as much of the CPU as it can.”

Not currently decryptable.
