#2062 Decrypting after a Findzip ransomware infection
The Findzip ransomware was discovered on February 22, 2017. At that time, it was thought that files would be irreversibly encrypted by this ransomware, with no chance of decryption. Turns out, that’s not quite true.

For those who get infected with Findzip (aka Filecoder), it’s still true that the hackers behind it can’t give you a key to decrypt it. There’s no honor among these particular thieves, as they’re lying about their ability to help if you pay the ransom.

However, all hope is not lost! If you made the mistake of not having a backup, or if your backup was also compromised by the ransomware, there’s still a chance for you to recover. It will not be fast or easy, but by following the instructions in this article, you’ll be able to regain your files. These instructions will be daunting for many, so if you have any doubts about your ability to follow them, please seek help from someone with more experience.
