A decryptor for the Everbe Ransomware was released by Michael Gillespie and Maxime Meignan that allows victims to get their files back for free.  It is not known how this ransomware is currently being distributed, but as long as victims have an unencrypted version of an encrypted file, they can use them to brute force the decryption key.

When victims are infected, their files will be encrypted and will have the .[] .everbe, .embrace, or .pain extensions appended to the encrypted file's name.

In each folder that a file is encrypted, the ransomware will also create a ransom note named !=How_recovery_files=!.txt that instructs the victim to email for payment information.

Everbe Ransom Note

For those who have been infected by the Everbe Ransomware and have files that are encrypted, you can use the guide below to decrypt your files for free. If you need help decrypting your files, feel free to ask in the Everbe Ransomware Help Topic.

How to Decrypt the Everbe Ransomware

Victims of the Everbe ransomware can be identified by having their files encrypted and renamed to have a .everbe, .pain, or .embrace extensions. To decrypt files encrypted by the Everbe ransomware, you need to first download the InsaneCrypt Decryptor below, which also supports Everbe.

Once downloaded, simply double-click on the executable to start the decryptor and you will be greeted with the main screen.

Decryptor Screen

In order to brute force the decryption key, we need an encrypted file and its original unencrypted version. Once we have these, click on the Settings menu and select Bruteforcer. This will open a screen where you will select both the encrypted file and its unencrypted version as shown below.

Select files to bruteforce

Once you have selected both files, click on the Start button to begin brute forcing the decryption key. This process can take quite a while so please be patient.

Bruteforcing Key

When finished, the decryptor will state that a decryption key has been found. Now click the X button to close the BruteForcer window and the key will be loaded into the decryptor as shown below.

Decryption Key Loaded

We now need to select a directory to decrypt. If you wish to decrypt an entire drive, simply select the drive letter itself. For example, in the image below you can see that we selected the C:\ drive.

Drive Selected

When ready, click on the Decrypt button to begin decrypting the Everbe encrypted files. Once you click Decrypt, the program will decrypt all the encrypted files and display the decryption status in the window.

Decrypting Files

When it has finished, the decryptor will display a summary of the number of files that have been decrypted. If some of the files were skipped it may be due to permissions to the files.

Decryption Finished

You can now close the decryptor and use your computer as normal. If you need help using this decryptor, please ask in our Everbe Ransomware Help Topic.
