How to remove Dharma-Frend Ransomware and decrypt .frend files

Standard

Dharma-Frend Ransomware is typical embranchment of Crysis-Dharma-Cezar ransomware virus family. This particular variation appends .frend extension to encrypted files and makes them unusable. Dharma-Frend Ransomware doesn’t have effective decryptor, however, we recommend you to try instructions below to attempt restoring your files. Dharma-Frend Ransomware adds suffix, that consists of multiple parts, such as: unique user’s id, developer’s e-mail address and .frend suffix. The pattern of filename after encryption looks like this: file called 1.doc will be converted to 1.doc.id-{8-digit-id}.[{email-address}].frend. Authors of Dharma-Frend Ransomware extort $10000 ransom from the victims. Using cryptocurrency and TOR-hosted payment websites makes it impossible to track malefactors. Besides, victims of such viruses often get scammed, and malefactors don’t send any keys even after paying the ransom. Unfortunately, manual or automatic decryption is impossible unless ransomware was developed with mistakes or had certain execution errors, flaws or vulnerabilities. We do not recommend to pay any money to malefactors. Often, after some period of time security specialists from antivirus companies or individual researchers decode the algorithms and release decryption keys.
