How to remove STOP (DJVU) Ransomware and decrypt .rectot files

Standard

STOP Ransomware (a.k.a. DJVU Ransomware) is extremely dangerous virus that encrypts files using AES-256 encryption algorithm and adds .rectot extension to affected files. Infection mostly involves important and valuable files, like photos, documents, databases, e-mails, videos etc. Rectot Ransomware does not touch system files to allow Windows operate, so users will be able to pay the ransom. If the malware server is unavailable (computer is not connected to the Internet, remote hackers’s server does not work), then the encryption tool uses the key and identifier that is hard-coded in it and performs offline encryption. In this case, it will be possible to decrypt the files without paying the ransom. STOP Ransomware creates _readme.txt file, that contains ransom message and contact details, on the desktop and in the folders with encrypted files.

STOP Ransomware (sometimes called DJVU Ransomware) is wide-spread encryption virus, that first appeared in December, 2017. Since then, lots of technical and design changes took place, and few generations of the malware changed. Ransomware uses AES-256 (CFB-mode) encryption algorithm to encode user’s files, and after this last version appends .dutan, .forasom, .sarut or .fedasot extensions. After encryption virus creates text files _readme.txt, that is called “ransom note”, where hackers disclose ransom amount, contact information and instructions to pay it.

Statistics shows, that hackers may not reply after getting the payment. So you won’t receive their decryption tool. We do not recommend transferring any funds to such people. However, files encrypted by STOP (DJVU) Ransomware can be decrypted with help of STOPDecrypter, free decryption utility, that is able to decode .dutan, .forasom, .sarut or .fedasot files for free.
