Any files that are encrypted with STOP ransomware
will have the .STOP
extension appended to the end of the encrypted data filename and leave files (ransom notes) named !!!YourDataRestore!!!.txt, !!!RestoreProcess!!!.txt, !!!INFO_RESTORE!!!.txt, !!!!RESTORE_FILES!!!.txt, !!!DATA_RESTORE!!!.txt, !!!KEYPASS_DECRYPTION_INFO!!!.txt, !!!WHY_MY_FILES_NOT_OPEN!!!.txt, !!!SAVE_FILES_INFO!!!.txt as explained here
Unfortunately, there is no known method
to decrypt files encrypted by any STOP Ransomware variants (including KEYPASS
) without paying the ransom.
There are ongoing discussion in these topics 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 one of the above support topic discussions...they include 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.
