    Hello. Information was sent to virus monitoring team, please, wait for reply. I received such a message from Dr.Web specialists. They are working on decryption.

    This is the general all decryptors page from Emsisoft. There is no decryptor for files encrypted by this ransomware yet. https://www.emsisoft.com/ransomware-decryption-tools/free-download

    I must say more precisely -> You trust Emsisoft Personally, I only help a little to unmask the ransomware.

    The ransomware doesn't need to put important information on the same hard drive/partition as the files it encrypted. This is why I recommend waiting to reinstall Windows.

    Don't reinstall Windows until we know for certain what is needed to decrypt files. If there is something other than what's contained in the encrypted files and the ransom notes that's necessary for decryption, then you could wipe that out by reinstalling Windows, thus making it impossible to decrypt your files. For now just rely on Anti-Virus software to clean up the system. If you're not certain if it's clean, then let us know, and we can assist you.

    Specialists of several companies (Emsisoft, DrWeb) are working on decryption of files that are encrypted by Avaddon. There are currently no decryptors and successful decryption methods without paying a pay for ransom.

    I am waiting for the verification results. I have provided samples of files and malware, it remains to wait and hope. It is worse when they immediately say that "decoding by our forces is impossible."

    My WSC does not recognise EAM either. Recommending that we should "uninstall EAM, restart the PC twice, and then reinstall EAM", on top of having to constantly disable and re-enable EAM components to deal with the still unfixed issue of excessive CPU usage, is uncceptable for a piece of software that is not exactly cheap.

    Key calculation is not finished yet, there are no final results. There is also no message that decryption is not possible, as is often the case.

    More than likely not. There are too many threads about this ransomware to keep track of, or to be able to reply to all of them. Our recommendation is to keep 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/

    This is a newer variant of STOP/Djvu, and your ID is an online ID, so there is currently no way to decrypt your files. There is more information at the following link: https://support.emsisoft.com/topic/32045-about-the-stopdjvu-decrypter/

    In regards to reinstalling Windows, we haven't found anything that would suggest you shouldn't do it, however it would be best to wait for Dr. Web to finish their analysis as well just in case they find a reason why reinstalling Windows would be bad.

    For reference: Previously, this method was still in CryptoMix Ransomware and some other ransomware. In the same way, it was possible to decrypt files encrypted offline with keys if the PC was disconnected from the Internet or the ransomware server was inaccessible.

    The Online/offline ID thing only applies to the STOP/Djvu ransomware, as it uses pre-programmed credentials to encrypt files when it can't connect to its command and control servers so that the criminals can try to maximize their illicit income from victims paying the ransom.

    The ID is in the ransom note. It is not divided into online and offline, as is done in 'STOP Ransomware'. At this point in time have been no public result of research yet. Or I haven’t seen him yet. Decryption without an original decryptor and private keys is a rather time-consuming process. Here you or we can’t somehow speed up the process or push decryption specialists. They will do everything they can and even more. You and we just need to wait for the results.

    For you it may "little",but for us your and emsisoft's service always biggest. And sir please,can you react to my previous questions? Please sir I'm expecting your answer.

    Ok thank you sir. I always trust you.and I'm waiting only for your AVADDON decrypter.I never trust them. Please consider my request. Shall I reinstall windows or not? because till AVADDON affect my pc,I used windows 7 professional.now it has expired and no secure.so I'm going to upgrade to 10. Are there any problems to my important ransomware affected files by upgrade my windows?. Please sir ...answer. Should I keep those files in same pc with same windows or can I move them to another disk?

    I did not have time to add this yesterday. Avaddon ransomware and its operators do not care about decrypting files after paying the ransom. Most likely, they will receive a day and hide. This has already happened to those who paid the ransom. They received neither a decryptor nor a feedback. The page that should automatically propose this turned out to be inoperative - error 404. This may be a temporary technical problem, but any such incident means that the extortionist will spit about your files. They need money, money, and again money. Be careful! Do not let yourself be fooled!

    Windows7-8,1-10. Real and virtual. It is only necessary to protect better, built-in protection is not enough.

    Removing malware can be done using antivirus software, which can be downloaded free of charge and run a scan in real time. If you are already on the Emsisoft company forum, then the logical action would be to download the Emsisoft software and check the system or all drives that are connected. Test results can be added to the message and Emsisoft specialists will help with the analysis of the results.

    The information about the encryption used can be found at the following link: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ru&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fid-ransomware.blogspot.ru%2F2016%2F11%2Fdharma-ransomware.html It's secure encryption, and there's no way to crack it. If you were able to get a memory dump from the ransomware while it was encrypting files, then in more than likely wouldn't help. RSA keys use a public key to encrypt, and a private key to decrypt. The private key is kept safely in a remote server while the ransomware uses the public key to encrypt files, and there's nothing you can learn from the public key that would help with decryption of files. I would believe the keys are generated securely, and if they were generated on a remote server then you could never be entirely certain what time they were generated, and so even if there was the possibility of a time-based RNG exploit then you wouldn't be able to do anything with it. They won't get powerful enough fast enough. The odds are much better of law enforcement catching the criminals and confiscating their database of private keys. We don't normally recommend that, however if you feel that's the only way to get your files back in a reasonable amount of time then we understand that you have to do what you feel is best.

    Avaddon Ransomware One of the victims, at my request, provided encrypted files and a ransom note. I added to this malware samples, early and newest. This is analyzed by decryption specialists. If there is a positive result, I will let you know. This will apply to all cases that have been until today.

    Apparently, the files were encrypted by Phobos Ransomware. You can check it yourself through the service ID Ransomware

    Avaddon Ransomware uses the .avdn extension. Are you sure you have an .pvdn-extension? Attach several encrypted files and a note from the ransomware to the message. Most likely the note will be in html-format (for example, 567432-readme.html), so you need to put for it in the archive and only then attach it to the message. Otherwise, forum protection will distort this file and I will not find there what needs to be seen. Or send files to me using the site https://dropmefiles.com/

    This is a newer variant of STOP/Djvu. Fortunately your ID 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/

    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.

    @haydn - I've been googling for info about the DebugDiag tool. I found a series of screenshots - at https://www.cantabilesoftware.com/support/DebugDiagTool - which show that setting (v1.2 of the tool) up to collect a series of dumps (albeit for a specific product) requires you to specify where they will be put. Presumably the earlier version of the tool also gave a user a chance to specify where dump etc would be written? Or failing that, used a standard location and told you were it was? I don't understand how anyone could set something like this up and then not keep an eye on what it was collecting. Also... did you ever look at the dumps? Did you run any of the diagnosis scripts? Did the tool ever do anything that you found useful? It seems to me that these tools are only of use to developers (because whatever information is in the dumps etc will only mean something to them, and in any case only they can actually fix the programs that are failing). The only situation where a user might use this tool is (like in the "Cantabile" support link above) when a product's developers need a particular user to use the tool to collect information which will then be sent to the developers. I wouldn't expect any normal user to do this unless explicitly told to by some company's tech support staff.

    Encrypted files and a ransom notes from extortionists need to be saved, it is possible that the files can be decrypted in the future.

    In 2020.6 we added a new service for handling reporting to the Windows Security Center. As for why exactly WSC isn't reading the status of EAM correctly, we're not certain if that's a bug on our side or Microsoft's (WSC has always been flaky). The only known fix for this issue right now is to uninstall EAM, restart the PC twice, and then reinstall EAM. We recommend downloading from MyEmsisoft if you already have an account, otherwise you can find alternate downloads at the link below: https://help.emsisoft.com/en/1597/download-installation/

    I'm not just asking for a date, because the file gets today's date when downloading it from a message. I set the encryption date in another way. It could be June 9th.

    Hallo, Wir haben festgestellt, dass die überwiegende Mehrheit der Benutzer diese Benachrichtigung deaktiviert hatte, und haben uns daher entschlossen, diese zu entfernen. Emsisoft Anti-Malware zeigt Benachrichtigungen an wenn keine Verbindung zu unseren Update-Servern hergestellt werden kann und Windows benachrichtigt Sie, wenn die Datenbank um mehr als 24 Stunden veraltet ist. Sie können die Protokolle überprüfen, um sicherzustellen, dass Updates installiert wurden. Claude

    Any files with an ID that ends in t1 should be decryptable once someone donates the private key for the .nlah variant to us.

    There are no decrypters for this one yet. I've asked for more info, as last I've heard is a couple of weeks old. If one employee on one workstation managed to infect an entire network and get all of the company's files encrypted, then that's a major IT security failure on the part of the company. In some countries they could be held liable for that by regulatory authorities for failure to comply with information and network security regulations.

    Are there any obvious file extensions appended to your encrypted data files? If so, what is the extension and is it the same for each encrypted file or is it different? Is there an ID number with random hexadecimal characters (.id-A04EBFC2, .id[4D21EF37-2214]) or an ID number with an email address (.id-BCBEF350.[<email>], .id[7A9B748C-1104].[<email>]) preceding the extension? Did you find any ransom notes? If so, what is the actual name of the ransom note? Can you provide (copy & paste) the ransom note contents in your next reply? You can also submit (upload) samples of encrypted files, ransom notes and any contact email addresses or hyperlinks provided by the malware developer to ID Ransomware (IDR) for assistance with identification and confirmation of the infection.

    STOP Ransomware The police of the country from which these extortionists work are engaged in other deals. They will not do anything because they will not receive direct instructions for action. In this country Interpol and Europol are also inactive.

    ok have just tried that (I also toggled the EAM yesterday as it happens, and Fast Startup is disabled on my machine) and while it worked following a restart, I;ve just turned the machine on again (hard boot) and it's happened again - wsc showed 'getting protection info' and the revolving circle of dots for about 2 minutes then it gave up and now shows the yellow exclamation mark icon again I have debug logs for this if they're of interest

    From what I'm reading, it should make the system more secure. That being said, Microsoft isn't known for making bug-free features.

    "Cloud scanning" is not effective for detecting all types of threats, and at least for now traditional Anti-Virus signatures are still required for proper protection.

    I'm not aware of any harm that can come to the system by toggling core isolation off and back on. Correct, it doesn't happen on my system either, so it's more than likely something specific to this laptop that's triggering this.

    Behavioral detection (that is detection based entirely on an unknown program's behavior rather than static or heuristic signatures in a database) is governed by a series of rules that are stored locally, and supplemented by a cloud network that uses multiple sources of data to try to reduce false positives and increase quality of detections. EAM also uses traditional Anti-Virus technology where a local threat database with static and heuristic signatures is kept for the purposes of real-time and on-demand scanning of files and programs. This database is updated periodically (once every hour by default) to ensure detection of the latest threats. Partially. We use two Anti-Virus engines (one made by us, and one made by BitDefender) and each has its own database. If you mean the software (Emsisoft Anti-Malware, aka. "EAM") then it relies mostly on its Anti-Virus engines and database of signatures, as well as the Web Protection. The Behavior Blocker is there to stop the small percentage of threats that aren't stopped by the other protection mechanisms, sort of like a last line of defense.

    Newer variants of STOP/Djvu (like the one your files were encrypted by) use RSA keys. We know how the encryption and decryption processes work, and it's not possible to decrypt without the private key. Keep in mind that we have the capability of running the ransomware in safe environments for analysis, and we've analyzed it fairly thoroughly over the year or so that it's been in distribution.
