I recently got Dirty Decrypt on a PC, I have since removed the virus following several guides online, some of which from Bleeping Computer. The computer is free from infection but the files remained encrypted, the files are mainly pictures that display a message to load dirty decrypter to have the files unencrypted. Is there anyway to get these files unencrypted?


I have tried several tools to get the files back but with no success. I was advised to have Dr. Web unlock the files but they have since closed it to customers only, I am willing to become a Dr. Web customer but do not want to if they cannot decrypt the files.


Thank you,

Although it is possible to remove the DirtyDecrypt ransomware, there does not appear to be a tool that decrypts the affected files at this time.

If you have a backup, you can restore your files from it.

Be aware that, if you consider paying the ransom, this action is not recommended. When you provide your credit card, or agree to a method of payment, you are at the mercy of whatever amount the malware creators decide on, with the option of assessing additional fees, etc. Also, paying the ransom does not guarantee you will get your files decrypted!!
