Decoders for 7ev3n ransomware

7ev3n is yet another ransomware about which I wrote some time ago (for Malwarebytes – you can read more here). It uses custom cryptography and I managed to decrypt several variants.  In this thread you can find my decryptors (and all the updates about them).

WARNING: 7ev3n ransomware has many variants. Check your ransom note and compare with the examples given below, in order to find what is your variant. Then, download appropriate decryptor. In case of any problems, feel free to contact me.

    Thanks for the great information on 7ev3n Hone$t malware. Based on this information I tried decrypting my files and surprisingly I succeeded for few files but not all files. It works well for all txt files and few bmp files but it does not work for doc, xls, pdf, jpg, psd etc.
    If possible for you please help me regarding this. my sample executable analysis is available here
    Please let me know if I can send you details thru email.

      Feel free to send me an e-mail. 7ev3n have many variants, so probably your sample is a bit different than the samples that I analyzed. But don’t worry – it looks it still can be cracked. Unfortunately, I can take care of this after next week, because now I am very busy.

      I made a decoder for you, please try the variant C

      • Diamante says:

        I am terrible sorry dear, still doesn’t work, the output are still unreadable and corrupt, but thanks anyway 😦

      • hasherezade says:

        don’t worry, it will work. I have to figure out more details to check where is the problem, but this variant is decryptable for sure. I guess you just supplied wrong used id or wrong original path – this data is very important for the decryption process. please send me your ransom note and one file in encrypted and unencrypted version. I will try to solve it for you.

    Hi, I tested this tool in some of my affected files, but the final output files appears to be corrupt

    Tested with some pictures, pdf, and some documents, but no success

    What I can do?
