A decryptor for the Everbe Ransomware was released by Michael Gillespie and Maxime Meignan that allows victims to get their files back for free.  It is not known how this ransomware is currently being distributed, but as long as victims have an unencrypted version of an encrypted file, they can use them to brute force the decryption key.

When victims are infected, their files will be encrypted and will  have the .[everbe@airmail.cc].everbe, .embrace, or .pain extensions appended to the encrypted file's name.

In each folder that a file is encrypted, the ransomware will also create a ransom note named !=How_recovery_files=!.txt that instructs the victim to email everbe@airmail.cc for payment information.

How to Decrypt the Everbe Ransomware

Victims of the Everbe ransomware can be identified by having their files encrypted and renamed to have a .everbe, .pain, or .embrace extensions. To decrypt files encrypted by the Everbe ransomware, you need to first download the InsaneCrypt Decryptor below, which also supports Everbe.

In order to brute force the decryption key, we need an encrypted files and its original unencrypted version. Once we have these, click on the Settings menu and select Bruteforcer. This will open a screen where you will select both the encrypted file and its unencrypted version as shown below.

We now need to select a directory to decrypt. If you wish to decrypt an entire drive, simply select the drive letter itself. For example, in the image below you can see that we selected the C:\ drive.

When ready, click on the Decrypt button to begin decrypting the Everbe encrypted files. Once you click Decrypt, the program will decrypt all the encrypted files and display the decryption status in the window.

When it has finished, the decryptor will display a summary of the amount of files that have been decrypted. If some of the files were skipped it may be due to permissions to the files.

Though your files are now decrypted, the original encrypted files will still be on your computer. Once you confirm that your files have been properly decrypted, you can use CryptoSearch to move all the encrypted files into one folder so you can delete or archive them.

You can now close the decryptor and use your computer as normal. If you need help using this decryptor, please ask in our Everbe Ransomware Help Topic..
