    I don't think it does, however please note that it isn't possible for an application or script to modify the HOSTS file unless it has administrator rights, and you should never allow an application you do not trust to run with administrator rights.

    For files that received the .avdn extension after encryption, I provided 2 different samples of the encryptor in DrWeb. In the newer version, files already receive 'random' extensions. These are other samples of the encryptor. Most likely, newer ones will cardinally differ from earlier ones. I contact Dr.Web specialists as a usual user. But I collect and provide all available information, encryptor samples and everything else that is needed. Main link: https://legal.drweb.com/encoder/?lng=en Support works in 10 languages. Anyone can order a test decryption by providing: - 5 different encrypted files and unencrypted original files; - a original unedited ransom note. No need to change anything in the files. If the victim has not previously used DrWeb products and there was no active DrWeb protection on his PC when the files were encrypted, then after a successful tested decrypt, you will need to purchase the Rescue Package for 150 euros. Support specialists will tell you what needs to be done.

    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.

    You'll have to wait for @Amigo-A as I have no contacts at Dr. Web.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Dear Amigo-A, Thanks for your response Okay then I'll be waiting for the positive result. Hope it'll help to restore my files soon *finger crossed* ☺️ Btw can you tell me how long does it take for the decryption specialist figured out to decrypt avdn files? because i urgently needed my files Thank you so much for your help

    Ransomware infections are unique in many ways. Most importantly, a lot of the natural instincts which are usually correct when dealing with malware infections can make things worse when dealing with ransomware. Please see the following steps as a guideline when dealing with your ransomware infection. Do not delete the ransomware infection The natural instinct of most users is first to remove the infection as quickly as possible. This instinct is, unfortunately, wrong. In most cases, we will require the ransomware executable to figure out what exactly the ransomware did to your files. Finding the right ransomware sample becomes infinitely more challenging when you deleted the infection and can't provide us with the ransomware. It is okay to disable the infection by disabling any autorun entries pointing to it or by quarantining the infection. However, it is important not to delete it from quarantine or to remove the malicious files right away without a backup. Disable any system optimisation and cleanup software immediately A lot of ransomware will store either itself or necessary files in your temporary files folder. If you do use system cleanup or optimisation tools like CCleaner, BleachBit, Glary Utilities, Clean Master, Advanced SystemCare, Wise Disk/Registry Cleaner, Wise Care, Auslogics BoostSpeed, System Mechanic, or anything comparable, disable those tools immediately and make sure there are no automatic runs scheduled. Otherwise, these applications may remove the infection or necessary ransomware files from your system, which may be required to recover your data. Create a backup of your encrypted files Some ransomware has hidden payloads that will delete and overwrite encrypted files after a certain amount of time. Decrypters may also not be one hundred percent accurate, as ransomware is often updated or simply buggy and may damage files in the recovery process. In those cases, an encrypted backup is better than having no backup at all. So we urge you to create a backup of your encrypted files first, before doing anything else. Server victims: Figure out the point of entry and close it Especially recently we have seen a lot of compromises of servers. The usual way in is by brute-forcing user passwords via RDP/Remote Desktop. We firmly suggest you check your event logs for a large number of login attempts. If you find such entries or if you find your event log to be empty, your server was hacked via RDP. It is crucial that you change all user account passwords immediately. We also suggest to disable RDP if at all possible or at least change the port. Also, it is important to check all the user accounts on the server, to make sure the attackers didn't create any backdoor accounts on their own that would allow them to access the system later. Figure out what ransomware infected you Last but not least it is important to determine what ransomware infected you. Services like VirusTotal, which allows you to scan malicious files, and ID Ransomware, which lets you upload your ransom note and encrypted files to identify the ransomware family, are incredibly useful and we will probably end up asking you for the results of either of these services. So by providing them right away, you can speed up the process of getting back your files. If you struggle with any of these points, please feel free to ask for help. Our ransomware first aid service comes with no-strings-attached and is free for both customers and non-customers.

    That's what it looks like, however we recommend waiting for Dr. Web to complete their analysis just in case there was something we overlooked.

    Our malware analysts say this ransomware appears to be secure, and files will most likely not be decryptable.
