I've been attacked by Hermes 2.1 ransomware with firstname.lastname@example.org as contact e-mail.
Unfortunately, I have no backups of some very important files. I tried using data recovery tools to restore deleted files, shadow copies but nothing helped. There isn't any not encrypted copy of these files.
I read https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/640086/hermes-ransom-help-support-topic-decrypt-informationhtml-ransom-note/page-2 and as I understood there is not any way to decrypt files at the moment.
But did anyone tried to pay them? I know it is risky but it may be my only way to get my files back.
