How to Decrypt .hoop files?

Djvu Ransomware essentially has two versions.

  1. Old Version: Most older extensions (from “.djvu” up to “.carote”) decryption for most of these versions was previously supported by STOPDecrypter tool in case if infected files with an offline key. That same support has been incorporated into the new Emsisoft Decryptor for these old Djvu variants. The decrypter will only decode your files without submitting file pairs if you have an OFFLINE KEY.
  2. New Version: The newest extensions released around the end of August 2019 after the ransomware was changed. This includes .coharos, .shariz, .gero, .hese, .xoza, .seto, peta, .moka, .meds, .kvag, .domm, .karl, .nesa, .boot and etc….These new versions were supported only with Emsisoft Decryptor.

"The decrypter can't decrypt my files?"

In most cases this indicates you have an online ID. It could also mean your documents were secured by a newer variation of STOP/Djvu.

  • Offline ID. When the ransomware can't connect to its command as well as control servers while encrypting your documents, it uses a built-in encryption key as well as a built-in ID. Offline ID's generally end in t1 and are typically easy to identify. Because the offline key as well as ID just change with each variant/extension, every person who has had their files secured by the same variant will certainly have the very same ID and also the documents will be decryptable by the exact same key (or "exclusive key in the case of RSA file encryption).
  • Online ID. In most cases the ransomware has the ability to connect to its command and also control web servers when it secures documents, and when this takes place the servers respond by generating arbitrary keys for each and every infected computer. Considering that each computer has its own key, you can not utilize a key from another computer system to decrypt your documents. The decrypter is capable of functioning around this with older variants as long as it has some assistance, nevertheless for more recent variations there is nothing that can be done to recuperate data.

In case when the tutorial doesn’t help, download the anti-malware tool we suggest or try free online virus checker. Furthermore, you may always ask us in the comments for assistance!
