i have the same CRAB problem i did what you said in this video. same things happensed. but the problem is still there spyhunter fix treats but the virus is still there and when i restore it . it restore the same files crab.. can you plzzzzzzzz help...
This tutorial is helping you to gain full control of your PC system again, not to decrypt crab file.
Thanks to this video, at least i can use my computer again without reinstalling windows and manage to recover small amount of data.
White hat hackers, some antivirus maker, and crypto sheriff is still trying to make the decryption tool.
GandCrab v3 is a variant of GandCrab ransomware family of viruses, decryptor for which is not released, since the decryption is very strong and researchers cannot find weaknesses in the malware code. However, do not despair, because there are other ways via which you can possibly recover your files. We have mentioned them in step "2. Restore files, encrypted by GandCrab v3" which is located in the URL in the description of this video. They are not 100% guarantee that you will be able to recover all of the files, but be advised that they can help you restore some of the files and if you have backup set up and the virus has skipped deleting it, you may be able to recover all of the files, using programs, like Shadow Explorer or Data Recovery programs. We also advise that you follow the article as we update it in case the criminals are arrested or in case they release a free decryptor for everyone after they abandon this virus and we will update the article with decryption instructions as we have done in the past. For other questions or if you want to share some experience, you can check out our forums (http://sensorstechforum.com/forums/malware-removal-questions-and-guides/)
Hello, at the moment there is no direct decryptor, but we have suggested some alternative methods why you can try, I reccomend starting with Shadow Explorer if you have enabled shadow volume copies. For all of the methods, see step "2. Restore files, encrypted by GandCrab v3" in the article in the description of the video. Be advised that these methods are only THEORETICAL and are not a 100% guarantee that you will be able to recover all of the files - they just aim to try and restore them as if they were deleted by scarping what's left of them on your hard drive, this is why it is important to try them out first, before reinstalling Windows. If you are in luck, you can recover some of the files and if you have shadow copies enabled, you will restore all of them for sure. In the meantime, we will track any development or new decryptors and will update the article in the description of this video in case a decryptor is discovered. Until then, you should backup the encrypted files and keep them safe. Usually decryptors are released if the cyber-crooks show good will and they drop the master key in public or if they get arrested by police. Another scenario is if researchers find a bug in the virus itself.
Currently there is no available method to decrypt CRAB files, but you have a chance to restore encrypted documents, photos and music for free. The virus repeatedly tells the victim that uses a hybrid AES + RSA encryption mode. What does it mean to decrypt the files is impossible without the private key. Use a “brute forcing” is also not a method because of the big length of the key. Therefore, unfortunately, the only payment to the developers of the GandCrab V3 ransomware entire amount requested – the only method to try to get the decryption key and decrypt all your files.
There is absolutely no guarantee that after pay a ransom to the creators of the GandCrab V3 virus, they will provide the necessary key to decrypt your files. In addition, you must understand that paying money to the cyber criminals, you are encouraging them to create a new ransomware.
Yes, basically that is correct, but we have reports of users at least being able to restore some of the files using alternative methods, like data recovery programs that were able to restore up to 60 files effectively for some and more than half of the files for others, by treating them as if they are deleted and scanning the sectors of the hard drives to recover the files. Paying is not advisable, because it is also no guarantee that they will decrypt the files.
