  1. Note: It is recommended to make a backup of all important files before using the decrypter. Link to decrypter download page. <- The decrypter will tell you if your files are decryptable, whether you're dealing with an "old" or "new" variant of STOP/Djvu, and whether your ID is online or offline. Link to instructions for using the decrypter (PDF). Link to "file pair" submission form. Link to more information about the decrypter. <- Article at BleepingComputer.com Link to more detailed information about STOP ransomware (covers more than just STOP/Djvu). <- Forum post at BleepingComputer.com Can I report this encryption of my files as a crime? Yes. Distribution of malicious files and holding property for ransom are criminal acts in many countries, and we encourage all victims to report such incidents to the national law enforcement in the country where they reside as this helps them determine how best to prioritize investigations into such criminal activity. There is a list of national law enforcement agencies who are participating in the No More Ransom project at the following link with information on how to file a report (if you live in a country not on the list then feel free to report the incident to your local law enforcement): https://www.nomoreransom.org/en/report-a-crime.html Someone says they can decrypt my files, but I will have to pay them. Is this safe? Such individuals or companies are either scam artists, or they are paying the ransom without telling you and overcharging you for it. Either way we recommend avoiding any contact with those who claim they can decrypt your files for a fee. How do I remove the ransomware? The STOP/Djvu decrypter will stop the ransomware from running so that it can't continue encrypting your files, however it doesn't completely remove the ransomware. Most Anti-Virus software will detect STOP/Djvu if you run a scan for it, however if you don't have Anti-Virus software installed then you can run a Malware Scan with Emsisoft Emergency Kit (free for home/non-commercial use). Note that formatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows will also remove the infection, however this ransomware is particularly easy to remove, so if a computer is only infected with STOP/Djvu then formatting the drive would be unnecessary. Will removing the infection unlock my files? No. Your files are encrypted. This encryption needs to be reversed (via a process called "decryption") before your files will be usable again. This encryption cannot be removed or undone simply by removing the STOP/Djvu ransomware infection. The decrypter can't decrypt my files? In most cases this means you have an online ID. It could also mean your files were encrypted by a newer variant of STOP/Djvu. See below for explanations. Why won't the decrypter run? The decrypter requires version 4.5.2 or newer of the Microsoft .NET Framework, so this could mean your version of the .NET Framework is out of date. We recommend installing the latest version of the .NET Framework (4.8 at the time of writing this), and then trying the decrypter again. What does "Remote name could not be resolved" mean? This can happen if your computer isn't connected to the Internet. If your Internet connection is working, then it can also be an indication of a DNS issue, and we recommend you reset your HOSTS file back to default if everything else seems fine. Microsoft has an article about this at the following link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/972034/how-to-reset-the-hosts-file-back-to-the-default Why is the decrypter stuck on "Starting"? When you run the decrypter, it looks for encrypted files. It will say "Starting" until it is able to find some. If the decrypter remains stuck on "Starting" for a long period of time, then this means it is unable to find any encrypted files. Offline ID. When the ransomware can't connect to its command and control servers while encrypting your files, it uses a built-in encryption key and a built-in ID. Offline ID's generally end in t1 and are usually easy to identify. Since the offline key and ID only change with each variant/extension, everyone who has had their files encrypted by the same variant will have the same ID and the files will be decryptable by the same key (or "private key" in the case of RSA keys). Online ID. In most cases the ransomware is able to connect to its command and control servers when it encrypts files, and when this happens the servers respond by generating random keys for each infected computer. Since each computer has its own key, you can't use a key from another computer to decrypt your files. The decrypter is capable of working around this with older variants as long as it has some help, however for newer variants there is nothing that can be done to recover files. Old Variants. Old variants were those in distribution until near the end of August, 2019. Our decrypter supports offline ID's for almost all older variants, and can decrypt files for those with offline ID's without needing any help. For online ID's, it's necessary to supply file pairs to our online submission form so that the decrypter can be "trained" how to decrypt your files. A list of extensions from older variants can be found at the bottom of this post. Is it possible to change an online ID into an offline ID? Your files' ID serves to identify which private key is needed to decrypt your files. If you were to somehow change the ID that was added to your encrypted files, then all you would accomplish is making it impossible to decrypt your files at all, even if you paid the ransom. It is imperative that you don't attempt to modify your encrypted files if you want to make sure that they can be decrypted some day. New Variants. These use more secure RSA keys which are impervious to most types of attacks. Support for some offline ID's has been added to the decrypter for newer variants, and support for new offline ID's will be added as we are able to figure out private keys (decryption keys) for them. As for online ID's, due to the usage of RSA keys, there's currently nothing the decrypter can do to help recover files. How long does it take to add support for new offline ID's to the decrypter? Private keys for offline ID's are donated by victims who paid the ransom, and there is no way for us to be able to estimate when this will happen. If you have an offline ID then try running the decrypter once every week or two, and if we have been able to add the private key for your ID then it will start decrypting files. Will it ever be possible to decrypt new variants with online ID's? That depends on whether or not law enforcement is able to catch the criminals who are behind this ransomware. If law enforcement is able to catch them and release their database of keys, then we can add those to our database for decryption. Are there any ways to recover/repair files that can't be decrypted? In most cases this is not possible, however there is a tool called DiskTuna that can help repair some videos that have been encrypted. This tool was made by a third-party, and they are not affiliated with us, however one of our developers has verified that it does work in at least some cases. You can find more information at this link. What is a file pair? This refers to a pair of files that are identical (as in they are the exact same file), except one copy is encrypted and the other is not. Our decryption service can analyze the differences between an encrypted file and an original unencrypted copy of the same file, allowing it to determine how to decrypt that type of file. For most victims with an older variant of STOP/Djvu, submitting file pairs will be the only way they will get their files back. File pairs only work for one type of file. Due to the way encryption works in STOP/Djvu, file pairs can only help the decryption service figure out how to decrypt one type of file. For instance, if you submit a file pair for an MP3 file, then the decrypter will be able to decrypt all of your other MP3 files, however it won't be able to decrypt any other type of file. There are some exceptions to this, such as certain newer Microsoft Office documents (such as DOCX and XLSX) since those files are technically ZIP archives. The decrypter can't decrypt all of my pictures even though I submitted file pairs for them? JPEG/JPG images have a format oddity that causes file pairs to be specific to each source of pictures, rather than the file format in general. As an example, if you have pictures from two different cameras, and submit a file pair from the group of pictures from one of the cameras, then the decrypter will only be able to decrypt files from the camera that the file pair came from. In order to decrypt all JPEG/JPG images, you will need to submit file pairs from every source you've obtained those pictures from. Extensions from older variants that the decrypter supports:

  2. You've not yet adequately answered my questions. I have however noticed that EAM hasn't nagged me recently; does that mean that someone's tweaked the code to stop the nagging, or is it just coincidence (since the nags seemed to be at irregular intervals)? If the nagging is going to continue, then please explain once and for all WHY this authentication is needed for a user who is not using the website-based console. Please also address all the other points I've raised here, namely: - the possibility (if there's not multiple instances) that your backend server is a single point of failure - the possibility (if someone manages to hack into those server(s)) of the security of customers' systems being at risk. I'm sure you won't have forgotten that an Emsisoft server was breached in Jan-Feb 2021. I know that was reported as a fairly minor data leak, but that doesn't mean that other kinds of breach are impossible. I wonder how much thought Emsisoft have given to how they'd mitigate effects (on customers' systems) if such a breach were to occur. And, do you run disaster-recovery tests on your infrastructure? If eg a data-centre which houses your servers burns down (as did OVHcloud, Strasbourg, France, in March 2021) how long will your customers be affected for? - the point about the website console, if one chooses to change to "Local Only" resetting my (private) PC's EAM configuration to default - two problems there: why would it reset anything, and secondly how/why (if my PC is not authenticated to the workspace) does it have the right to perform a reset? - the tooltip text for the "Local Only" option I do not think I have muddied the waters with conjecture. But note that "conjecture" means speculation based on inadequate information. The very fact that I've been asking the initial question here (about the nagging) over and over again without a proper answer being given has not helped. Questions about single points of failure etc might have been less relevant before when your customers' systems were less tightly integrated with your servers; I mean all of us could cope with occasional absences of signature updates. But centralised control of our copies of EAM by your servers considerably heightens risk for customers. I would like you to understand that I ask about these things based on my professional experiences in a UK bank's datacentre.

  4. It's more difficult with pictures. They are more compressed and less fragmented than video files, so the cipher damages them much. If you transferred a collection of photos from one disk to another and after that did not fill this place on the disk with anything, then using data recovery programs you can recover some of the photos from the previous location.

  6. Because the decrypter already supports it. The reason it can't decrypt files encrypted by this newer variant is due to the fact that we don't have the private key for it's offline ID. We have to wait for a victim with an offline ID who paid the ransom to donate their private key to us.

  7. Hello, The posts you found are more than 5 years old. In terms of security software that means the information there is severely outdated. In the past years considerable changes have been made to our products and currently Emsisoft Anti-Malware protects against fileless malware. Fileless malware detection has nothing to do with the reputation settings you asked about; our behavior blocker routines were adapted to adequately detect and block fileless malware a few years ago.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  17. Backing up the encrypted files is something that you should do. There is always 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. Removing the infection that is installed by the latest variants can be somewhat difficult to remove. No all of it is showing in logs or being detected by an AV.

  21. @Jorge MirandaOur 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. 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/

  22. Yes, it is probably true. The Emsisoft Decryptor defines this fact very accurately. What to do? Everything is lost? No. It is recommended that you save the encrypted files to an external drive. It is possible that in the future the decryption method will change or the extortionists will publish the decryption keys. There have been several such unexpected cases recently when others extortionists shut down their ransomware projects and published decryption keys and master keys for everyone who got encrypted. The percentage of such happy cases is small, but it still exists. Next, I'll tell you what you need to do now, immediately, and what you can try after that.

  23. This is offline ID and files can be decrypted, when the decryptor gets the key for this variant. Free Ransomware Decryption Tools https://www.emsisoft.com/ransomware-decryption-tools/free-download It is a legitimate file decryption software without paying a pay. This is not crackware.

  24. Adding the decryption key to the Emsisoft Decryptor depends on the voluntary transfer of the key by someone who paid the ransom. When this will be done, no one can predict. Therefore, the wait may drag on indefinitely. --- Only after neutralizing all malicious files ... I recommend this following method only when there is no other way. You decide what action to take. 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 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. An alternative method for other files has not yet been found.

  30. This is the result of an attack by the 'STOP Ransomware' program. The extortionists who distribute this malicious program have been operating with impunity for 3.5 years. Interpol and secret services are involved in dirty politics and do not want to direct their efforts against the extortionists. Emsisoft Decryptor can decrypt files, but only if there is a "t1" (offline ID) at the end of the ID. But this will become possible only after the decryption key of this variant is added to the Decryptor. When this will happen, it is impossible to predict. Save the encrypted files in a safe place, make a copy and re-download the decryptor once a week to try it. The expectation may take some time ...

  31. It is important that no new encryption occurs. To do this, you can install any antivirus product of the Internet Security class, which provides a trial period of up to 1 month, with a full set of protection. For example, Emsisoft Anti-Malware After a month, you can install another AV and also for 1 month for free. After a while, you can choose the best one, in your opinion.

  32. It would be OK if you weren't hijacking someone else's topic. I'll move your post and mine into a new topic once I've finished typing it. You will have to find the new topic yourself though, as apparently it's a violation of GDPR for me to use the "Log in as" feature on the forums to log in as you and follow the new topic for you. We remove any duplicate signatures from our own database. There's no good reason to keep a signature for something in our database if BitDefender's engine also detects it, and doing so bloats the database with redundant signatures, so every now and then we go through the process of checking for and removing duplicate signatures as part of regular database optimizations. This will probably bias the detections in favor of the BitDefender engine, since its our own engine that we're removing the duplicate signatures from. We don't make our budget public, and quite frankly I don't think our management has ever had a company meeting where they let our employees know where we spend our money either, so all I can say is that if you save a ridiculous amount of money by dropping out of testing then it might be able to pay a extra salary or two. We fix security issues in EAM on a regular basis, and we update the protection mechanisms regularly as well. We just don't make a big deal about it when we do, because those are "under the hood" changes that customer can't see (at least as long as the changes don't introduce a new bug that causes some customers to contact our support). We've never listed the majority of changes in our release notes. That's nothing new, as we've always limited the release notes to just the major things that customers were waiting for us to fix. We fill in with "minor tweaks and fixes" just to let those who read it know that we did more than the one or two other things listed in the blog posts. Our history of product update announcements disagrees with you: https://blog.emsisoft.com/en/category/emsisoft-news/product-updates/ It literally costs us nothing to have an extra subforum, unless we need to pay someone to monitor it and reply to topics in it. We already had a feedback subforum in the past. Most of the topics were never replied to, as support representatives can really only thank you for your feedback and promise that it will be considered, and while members of the management team would read the feedback they didn't usually have the time to reply to most of it. Our management team prefers feedback to be sent via to a dedicated e-mail address, that way they receive all of it in a place that's easy for them to access and review without leaving forum topics sitting there appearing to have been ignored. The management console happens to be a rather important feature, not only for corporate customers and MSP's, but also for home users who want to be able to manage their devices quickly and easily from anywhere.

  37. No. Your files aren't infected, they're encrypted. Just make sure the ransomware itself have been removed from your computer first, because it will continue to encrypt files if it's still running. Emsisoft Emergency Kit can detect and remove it. https://www.emsisoft.com/en/home/emergencykit/ You can save them wherever you want. My only recommendation is to keep them saved on a device that you don't keep connected to your computer, and it's not a bad idea to have two or more backup copies just in case anything happens to one of them. Probably not. Most ransomware will try to make sure that it is impossible to recover files, even from Volume Shadow Copies. Recovery points are stored in a protect folder, and most tools don't have access to them. There may be tools out there that can access them and save copies of them like Shadow Explorer does, however I'm not familiar with those tools.

  38. You need to post here: https://support.emsisoft.com/forum/6-help-my-pc-is-infected/ There's instructions at the top of that forum about the information you need to provide. Good luck!

  39. We’ve just released Emsisoft Anti-Malware 2021.2.0.10664 beta. You will have to enable beta updates to get this version. Several minor tweaks and fixes.

  40. Well, your ID for STOP/Djvu (.coos) is an offline ID, however we don't yet have the private key for it. I recommend running the decrypter once every week or two so that you can see when we've been able to add the private key for your variant. There is more information at the following link: https://support.emsisoft.com/topic/32045-about-the-stopdjvu-decrypter/ As for files with .ROGER added to their names, those were encrypted by Dharma, and there's no way to decrypt them without paying the ransom.

  41. This is a newer variant of STOP/Djvu. If you have an offline ID, then once we can find the decryption key for this variant and add it to our database you should be able to recover your files. However, if you have an online ID (which is more likely) then it will not be possible to recover your files. There is more information at the following link: https://support.emsisoft.com/topic/32045-about-the-stopdjvu-decrypter/

  42. I doubt anyone has looked into it for at least a couple of years at this point. We know the kind of encryption it uses, and we know it isn't normally breakable.

  44. We found the issue, thanks to the logs @JeremyNicoll sent me last night. This happens when you have enabled notification "Application restarts". (Disabled by default) When an app restart is required, like yesterday, and you do not touch the notification and the counter goes down to 0, no app restart is performed We will fix this in the upcoming 2021.1 version;

  45. It's described at the bottom of the last page of the instruction manual for the decrypter: https://www.emsisoft.com/ransomware-decryption-tools/howtos/emsisoft_howto_stopdjvu.pdf Here's what it says: Keep encrypted files Since the ransomware does not save any information about the unencrypted files, the decryptor can’t guarantee that the decrypted data is identical to the one that was previously encrypted. Therefore, the decryptor by default will opt on the side of caution and not remove any encrypted files after they have been decrypted. If you want the decryptor to remove any encrypted files after they have been processed, you can disable this option. Doing so may be necessary if your disk space is limited. You can find this option in the Options tab in the decrypter. From the description in the documentation, it should save copies of the encrypted files by default (meaning the option should be on unless you manually turned it off).

  46. You're welcome. We're always glad to be of assistance. Almost everything was removed successfully. The uninstall entry for Emsisoft Anti-Malware wasn't removed, and if you open Apps and Features you will probably still see it in the list. You can attempt to run it again to see if the uninstall is still there and runs, or if it isn't there Windows will ask if you want to remove it from the list (it's safe to allow it to do so). I didn't add the Emsisoft Anti-Malware folder to the script. You can delete it manually before reinstalling if you would like to. It's usually located at C:\Program Files\Emsisoft Anti-Malware

  47. We use a number of mechanisms to try to determine the trustworthiness of applications (most of that involves our "Anti-Malware Network"). While we're always working on our detection technologies, I wouldn't expect to see any major changes in how our behavioral detection systems work in this regard. At least not in the near future. Applications have to actually do something to trigger behavioral detection, and many games actually do one or more things that our Behavior Blocker monitors for.

  48. @GT500 Hello. This refers to the other that we call Alco Ransomware or Maoloa-Alco Ransomware There is not a single decrypted variant.

  50. It's normal for KMS/KMSpico to install the STOP/Djvu ransomware. We already have as many samples of the ransomware as we'd like, but I have forwarded the URL to our malware analysts for blacklisting if they deem it dangerous.
