  1. 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...
  2. t1 at the end of the identifier usually tells us that the files can be decrypted, but only in the future when someone with a generous hand send a decryption key with the developers of the decryptor. It may not happen soon or unexpectedly. Usually, victims cannot wait that long, they want to return everything as soon as possible. Emsisoft is the only company trying to create and provide decryptors to victims for free. If it can be done, it will be done. If the victim is a business company, then there is another solution for this. A detailed investigation of the incident will be required.

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.

  3. Yes. It is recommended to save the necessary files on an external drive (flash drive) along with the files _readme.txt and PersonalID.txt If the system files are damaged and the system is working intermittently, reinstalling Windows (for Windows 7) or resetting it to its original state (for Windows 8-10) will allow you to work more comfortably.

  7. Read this Guide, there is a link to the Emsisoft Decryptor at the beginning of the article. Run it, it will tell you the result. There may be 1 shared key for several different variants. But you didn't tell us the extension that was added to the files after encryption.
  8. Starting with the 2nd version Conti Ransomware, the extensions began to consist of 5 letter random cases. And nothing else has changed.
  9. OK. Thanks. It for accuracy. The versions numbers and extensions of STOP-Djvu Ransomware
  10. Do you have the _readme.txt file that the ransomware left behind? Look at the first four digits in the Your personal ID. Is it 0338?

  12. It's not a Error. This is how the Emsisoft Decryptor informs that the files can be decrypted, but not now, but in the future, when the decryption key will be included in the Emsisoft Decryptor. When this will be done, nobody knows. The transfer of the key to the developers of the Emsisoft Decryptor depends on those who buy the key and share it out of generosity. Recently, the decryption key has appeared very rarely. It is possible that it will never be provided. You can only recover some files if you use the methods that I will describe in the next post.

  17. Hello. 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.

  21. If an 'online ID' was used for encryption, then decryption is not possible, but I can suggest you use an alternative method to get some of your files back. Run the Emsisoft Decryptor and tell us the result.
  22. The information you need is collected here. If you run the Emsisoft Decryptor, it will tell you if the files can be decrypted in the future when the key for your variant appears.
