Also, the viruses released before August, previous year, have the official decryption tool available in the form of STOPdecryptor from Emsisoft. However, this decryptor works only for those viruses which use official based key for the data encryption. The ransomware like Nppp Ransomware which encrypts files, including images, audios, videos, images and etc with some online key of hackers’ choice through connecting the remote server belongs to them. And so, the Emsisoft’s decryptor will not work in this case.
