Hello @dj1,

Welcome to the Emsisoft Support Forums.

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

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 a 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. https://blog.emsisoft.com/en/category/protection-guides/

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.

We just don't know when it will happen.
Someone buys a key, gives it to the Emsisoft Decryptor developers, here on the forum.

Then the developers will add the key to the Decryptor database.
After that, anyone affected by this variant of ransomware can it used.

What can you do while waiting for a happy day?

1) Consider your line of defense to avoid re-encrypting files with malicious files. Very often, victims of ransomware do not fix bugs and continue to use basic or free antivirus protection. First of all, you need to understand that this is only 1 percent protection and the next time the same will happen. Extortionists anew will use ransomware to attack PCs and steal data, encrypt files, and the victim anew will have to pay a ransom or lose files.

2) Save encrypted files or only the most valuable to an external drive. Disconnect it from your PC. This will save your files from being re-encrypted or otherwise encrypted. We have seen many cases where encryption was repeated and files were encrypted by another variant of the ransomware that left no chance of salvation.
