Michael Gillespie (Demonslay335) released a decryption tool for victims of the HC6 variant of this infection but I am not aware of a solution for newer variants.

Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.
