The chances of decrypting newer ransomware variants are very low. Ransomware is spread via email and users need to be trained not to open email from strangers. Then make sure good backups exist.

The general recommendation here is not to pay ransom. Some have, and have been successful. Others have paid and got nothing.

Just go to the Kaspersky Anti ransomware and hope for the best...usually if you have some patience a decryptor tool that matches your ransomware will be released..

Or you can just pay the ransom.  Most everybody on this site will tell you to NOT do that as it just encourages the criminals to continue.  However, it is up to YOU to determine if the data is valuable enough to pay the ransom in order to recover it.

The ugly thing with ransomware is that there is absolutely not guaranty that if you pay the ransom they will definitely give you the although its way too hard to accept you just lost everything the more people refuse to pay the ransom the less interest there would be to infect people with ransomware...The proposed solution is to replace the infected disk and  put a the infected disk in a drawer and periodically check if a decryptor has being released...

Suggest you use IDRansom ( to identify the exact family and see if decryptor tool is available.

I have also listed out a long list of decryptor in Annex in the EE article.

As a whole chances are low if backup is not available. It is best effort and advice user not to pay ransom even if it is so critical and need to know that it may not even be warranty to work if paid ransom.
