Latest news by Lawrence Abrams, site owner of Bleeping Computer (10/17/18):
The GandCrab developers released the decryption keys to Syrian victims. Demonslay335 (Michael Gillespie) imported these decryption keys into ID Ransomware (IDR) so the service can determine if your key is available by simply uploading the ransom note here.

Hi to all,
Well, another sucker has just been had.
I have been infected with the Gandcrab 5.0.3 with ZGSJPN added to my file extensions.
I have installed Spyhunter, ran it, looks like it has cleaned it out but can not decrypt the lost files.
From what I have read there is currently no fix for this.
Has anyone paid the ransom and successfully retrieved their files.

That is correct unless you pay the ransom or you are a Syrian victims.
I have been infected with the Gandcrab 5.0.3 with ZGSJPN added to my file extensions....From what I have read there is currently no fix for this...
Some ransomware victims have reported they paid the ransom and were successful in decrypting their data. Other victims have reported paying the ransom only to discover the criminals wanted more money...demanding additional payments with threats the data would be destroyed or exposed. Still others have reported they paid but the cyber-criminals did not provide a decryptor or a key to decrypt the files, while others reported the decryption software and/or key they received did not work, resulted in errors and in some cases caused damage to the files. Most cyber-criminals provide instructions in the ransom note that allow their victims to submit one or two limited size files for free decryption as proof they can decrypt the files. However, decryption in bulk may not always work properly or work at all and decryption of very large files may be unsuccessful even with the criminal's decyption tool. In some cases victims may actually be dealing with scam ransomware where the malware writers have no intention or capability of decrypting files after the ransom is paid.
...Has anyone paid the ransom and successfully retrieved their files.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know on average how long it takes for these things to be cracked?
I don't want to pay but I need my files back.
