    About the recently released, by Emsisoft, decryptors for the STOP Djvu ransomware:

    They are available at the site of the No More Ransom project:
    at the bottom of https://www.nomoreransom.org/en/decryption-tools.html
    Look there at djvu Ransom.

    @Fabian Wosar was so kind to point me to it.
    It can take a few days before such tools are included there.
    Thank you Fabian :thumb:
