  1. No AV solution monitors what is executed inside the browser. That is not only a massive violation of privacy, it presents security issues. JavaScript never executes outside of the browser. If the JavaScirpt performs a file operation such as initiating a download or examining files on the drive we would intercept that activity.

  2. Only after neutralizing all malicious files ... I recommend this following method only when there is no other way... This is not the decryption, it is the recovery of certain types of files using the features of these files. 1) If you have encrypted ZIP/RAR archives, you can partially recover them. Only 1-2 files are damaged there. Remove the extension that the ransomware added to the archives, and extract the files in the usual way. Everything except 1-2 files will be fixed. If there is only 1 file in the archive, then it will most likely be unrecoverable. 2) There is an alternative (additional) way to recover some media files: WAV, MP3, MP4, M4V, MOV, 3GP. https://www.disktuna.com/media_repair-file-repair-for-stop-djvu-mp3-mp4-3gp But before trying the alternative variant with media files, it is recommended that you make a copy of the encrypted files. Something will be restored better, something will be restored worse. Some types of files can be opened (restored) using the application in which they were created. To do this, you must first remove the extension added by the ransomware. Then can try to open the file from the program in which it was created. If you open audio and video files in the editor, it will restore the structure, and upon closing it will offer to save the changes in the file. 3) If you have PDFs or files of other e-books, then they may suffer in part if they were not protected from manual modification. Therefore, after removing the added extension, they can be partially read (~ 80%). Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to recover files created in MS Office applications due to their sensitivity to any damage. They can be easily damaged without encryption. It is easier to recover and read text written on paper or on the stone than one created in MS Office. An alternative method for other files has not yet been found. I understand that this will not be enough, but recovering some of the files is better than to lose everything...

  3. Why did this happen? This 'STOP Ransomware' enters the PC due to the fact that computer is poorly protected. People often use free antivirus programs with the 'Free' label in the name. None of these programs will protect PC from programs similar to 'STOP Ransomware', because basic protection is not capable of this feat. If users used comprehensive protection of the 'Internet Security' class, then it would help protect PC from ransomware attacks. There is no 100% protection against malware, but what the 'Free' antivirus gives is 1-2 percent protection. After this attack, PCs could have stayed other malware elements. This maybe is an info-stealer and something else. Therefore, it is urgent to conduct a full check and destroy malware. Use an comprehensive anti-virus software such as Emsisoft Anti-Malware to effectively remove the malware. You can get a free trial 30-days version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware here: https://www.emsisoft.com/en/home/antimalware/ It will help you clean your PC from other malware for free. !!! You need to neutralize all malicious files in the system. This should be done as quickly as possible. Otherwise, the files may be encrypted using the online ID and decryption will never be possible.

  4. There's the possibility that law enforcement may be able to catch the criminals and release their database of private keys, meaning that you could try again using tool in few weeks in case something changed. We do not recommend paying the ransom unless there is absolutely no other choice. 22% of those who paid a ransom never got access to their data. 9% said they got hit with additional ransom demands after paying. We’re talking about criminals, after all. Our recommendation is to save a backup of your encrypted files and keep it in a safe place in case decryption is possible at some point in the future. Please review our Protection Guides at your leisure, they contain several tips on protecting your computer and data. https://blog.emsisoft.com/en/category/protection-guides/ We also recommend keeping an eye on BleepingComputer's newsfeed, as they will usually report on new developments with ransomware decrypters: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/ If you have an RSS feed reader, then they also have an RSS feed so that you don't have to manually check for news: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/feed/
