Besides files on your C: disk, the threat could also encrypt various private documents, photographs, pictures, and other valuable files located on D: disk. Then it may open a pop-up window called after the malware. The pop-up contains instructions written in Portuguese and telling you how to purchase a decryption key to unlock all damaged files, bus as it was mentioned earlier it could be a waste of your money.

Apparently, the malicious program was written in .NET framework language. Since the threat’s creators did not bother to obfuscate their code, our specialists were able to read it and find out more information about Kill Jeeperscrypt Ransomware. This is how we learned the infection might not store the decryption key users are supposed to purchase on a secret server or somewhere else outside the affected device because our specialists were able to find it in the malware’s code. What is interesting is that the threat creates a single decryption key, which can be used by any user who infected his device with the same malicious program.

The sample we researched provided the following decryption key Y29uaGVjaW1lbnRvIG5hbyBlIGNyaW1lIGNyaW1lIHNlciBidXJybyBlIGJhaXhhciBxdWFscXVlciBtZXJkYSBuYSBpbnRlcm5ldCBhY2hhbmRvIHF1ZSB2YWkgc2UgDQpkYXIgYmVtIGlzc28gZSBwcmEgdm9jZXMgYXByZW5kZXIgYSBuYW8gYmFpeGFyIG1haXMgbWVyZGEgbmEgaW50ZXJuZXQgc2V1cyBvdGFyaW9z. If Kill Jeeperscrypt Ransomware gets updated this key may no longer work; thus, we cannot guarantee it will work for everyone. The only way to find out is probably to just insert it into the given box and click the Desencriptar button. Files that were locked should be marked with .jeepers extension (e.g. panda.jpg.jeepers), so its disappearance might mean the decryption was successful or you could simply try to open such data.

Another way to get your data back is to use decryption software. This tool was created by volunteers, so it should be available for anyone to download. If the decryption key does not work, you could search for this tool instead. However, you should concentrate not only on restoring the encrypted data but also on how to clean your system from this malicious program.
