  1. What to do? Everything is lost? No, there is currently no way to decrypt files, but in the future, in theory, extortionists can publish keys to all of their victims. This does not happen often, but this year we have seen such cases several times. 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.
  2. We usually recommend reading this article first. If you download an Emsisoft Decryptor, it will tell you if your files can be decrypted.
  3. Hello. In this section of the forum, you need to provide a ransom note (and different, if any) and several encrypted files in the zip archive. This way we can try to identify the ransomware that encrypted the files. All available variants are collected here. To date, the 'STOP Ransomware' variant that adds the .stax extension to the encrypted file is one of the new ones.
  4. Hello. Description: LokiLocker Ransomware Not yet added to the 'ID-Ransomware' service and is not identified.
  5. Hello First, you need to read the manual on the subject. https://support.emsisoft.com/topic/32045-about-the-stopdjvu-decrypter/

  8. Hello @Manoj1986 Yes. There are 't1' characters at the end of the identifier, this usually means that the 'offline ID' is being used and the files can be decrypted in the future when the decryption key for this variant is loaded into the 'Emsisoft Decryptor'. This event depends on the voluntary transfer of the key by someone who bought the key from the extortionists. This may happen or may never happen. The appearance of a new key is not reported anywhere. The work is done every day. It is recommended to save the encrypted files on an external drive, download the 'Emsisoft Decryptor' once a week and check the decryption capability.

  13. Only after neutralizing all malicious files ... 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...

  15. Hello @sassykman In short, you need to download the Emsisoft Decoder and run it. He will check the decryption capability and tell you the result. If you have any questions, please let us know and I will offer you an alternative way to get your files back without decryption. You can also read about this method at the following link in my post.

  19. Hello @santosh_git94 We have general Guide on this matter. Download the Emsisoft decryptor, run it, it will check and tell you if the files can be decrypted. If it turns out that decryption is impossible, please let me know and I will tell you how else you can try to get the files back.

  22. It accurately identifies the decryption capability. At the moment there are no other decryptors that decrypt files after this 'STOP Ransomware'. If some site offers decryption, then it lies and lures visitors with false promises. But it is recommended to save the encrypted files for future reference. Sometimes other extortionists publish the master key or decryption keys to all victims. This rarely happens, but there have been several such cases this year. Next, I will tell you what you need to do immediately and what you can do to recover some of your files so as not to lose everything.

  24. It is recommended to save the files on an external drive or flash drive, whichever best corresponds to the total size of the encrypted files. --- Please attach a _readme.txt file to the message so that I can correct the ransomware version.
