Is the STOPdjvu the first of its kind?

Recommended Posts

is STOPdjvu virus the first virus to use an online key encryption ? 

if any other ransomware used the online key encryption then, did someone even find a way to decrypt those files?

also how long do we have to wait in order to decrypt our files?

An "online key" refers to a pair of private and public keys that were generated by the ransomware's command and control server. Many ransomwares use this same strategy to ensure that victims can't get their hands on the private key in order to ensure that they can't decrypt their files for free or get help from anyone else. The only reason we use the terms "online" and "offline" in regards to the ID's and keys used by STOP/Djvu is due to the fact that the ransomware has a built-in ID and public key to be used for encrypting files when it can't connect to its command and control servers, which is why we refer to them as "offline".
