Dr.Web may be able to decrypt some variants of Scarab Ransomware but they need the ransom note and 3-4 encrypted files as indicated here.

If you have been infected by Scarab Ransomware, please PM Emmanuel_ADC-Soft for assistance.

I am working for Dr.Web support.
Please send a link at www.wetransfer.com with the ransom note and 3-4 crypted files. Kind regards,
Emmanuel (emte@adc-soft.com)

Opening a support request with Dr.Web is free but if you're not a licensed user of a Dr.Web product you will have to pay 150 exc for their services (decrypter/personnal decryption key) if they are able to calculate the decryption key. The fee includes a free two-year Dr.Web Security Space license for 1 computer as noted here.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic where victims can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.

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 Scarab Ransomware 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.
