My PC was recently infected by a ransomware and it encrypted all my files to the .coot format. I heard it is fairly new and has been protected with a very strong RSA algorithm and cannot be decrypted.
I formatted my primary SSD on which Windows(10) was installed. I did a full scan by Malwarebytes and I think I got rid of the ransomware but I still need my data back.
I have two questions:
1) If possible, how long will it take for a decrypter to be made for it and will Emsisoft make one?
2) Can the encrypted files be recovered by Data Recovery firms that recover hard drives (like Stellar)?
