How to Decrypt .igdm 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?"

For the most part this means you have an online ID. It can additionally mean your files were secured by a more recent version of STOP/Djvu.

  • Offline ID. When the ransomware can not connect to its command and also control servers while encrypting your documents, it makes use of an integrated file encryption key as well as a built-in ID. Offline ID's typically end in t1 as well as are usually easy to recognize. Given that the offline key as well as ID just change with each variant/extension, everyone who has had their files encrypted by the exact same variant will have the same ID and the files will certainly be decryptable by the exact same key (or "personal key in the case of RSA encryption).
  • Online ID. For the most part the ransomware has the ability to attach to its command and also control servers when it secures data, and also when this takes place the servers react by producing random keys for each and every contaminated computer. Given that each computer has its very own key, you can not make use of a key from another computer system to decrypt your data. The decrypter can functioning around this with older versions as long as it has some aid, nevertheless for newer versions there is nothing that can be done to recover data.
