wiot ransamware data recovery


Recommended Posts

Hello @KYO,

Welcome to the Emsisoft Support Forums.

 

That extension is used by STOP(DJVU). Unfortunately, we no longer have any method to decrypt STOP(DJVU) unless the encryption occurred before the 29th of August 2019.

Please refer to this blog post for information about a decrypter that may work, and also for support instructions if it does not: https://blog.emsisoft.com/en/34375/emsisoft-releases-new-decryptor-for-stop-djvu-ransomware/

I understand it is frustrating, but currently, we cannot decrypt files that we do not have the Private Encryption Key in our Database.

 

There's the possibility that law enforcement may be able to catch the criminals and release their database of private keys, meaning that you could try again using the tool in few weeks in case something changed.

 

We do not recommend paying the ransom unless there is absolutely no other choice. 22% of those who paid a ransom never got access to their data. 9% said they got hit with additional ransom demands after paying. We’re talking about criminals, after all.

 

Our recommendation is to save a backup of your encrypted files and keep it in a safe place in case decryption is possible at some point in the future.

 

Please review our Protection Guides at your leisure, they contain several tips on protecting your computer and data.

 

We also recommend keeping 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/

 

Please consider subscribing to a reliable anti-malware application to avoid similar issues in the future.

I know it’s a big loss for you. We are glad to offer this service for free and help as much as we can, but there is not always an immediate resolution for all the cases.
