The Ransomware Paradise Decrypter

Victims need an encrypted or unencrypted pair of files greater than 3 KB in order to use a decryptor. It is easier to find unencrypted versions of files that you have downloaded from the Internet or copied elsewhere.

Once you have a encrypted and unencrypted pair of files, install and run Emsisoft’s Paradise Ransomware decryptor. You will then be asked to pick the versions of the file that are encrypted or unencrypted as shown below.

When the files are selected, click on the Start button, and the decrypter attempts to brute the decryption key. When a key is found, the decryptor shows an alert and loads the key.

Press OK and you can add the drives that you want to decrypt to a screen. The drive C: is added to the decryptor. After the drives have been selected, click on the Decrypt button in order to start the decryption process.
