Demonslay335 will have to advise you about the SHA1 hash number.

Until then...are there any obvious file extensions appended to or with your encrypted data files (i.e. several random hexadecimal characters, words or email addresses)? If so, is the extension the same for each encrypted file or is it different?
Did you find any ransom notes and if so, what is it's actual name?
Did the cyber-criminals provide an email address to send payment to?

According to the email address used in the ransom note, it looks like your files may have been encrypted by the newer CryptON variant that is still under analysis by the Emsisoft team.


For reference, the user uploaded files with extension ".4024857142" and note "RTEVWRORYCVDHADSB.bmp", which looks like the following.
