Done Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts your files and demands a ransom for the decryption key.


Done Ransomware was first discovered in February 2016 by security researchers. Done is a member of the CryptXXX ransomware family.

This ransomware gets its name from the .done file extension that it appends to the names of encrypted files.

Done uses the AES-256 encryption algorithm to encrypt victims’ files. This ransomware will also append the .id-[random numbers] and email address extensions to encrypted files. For example, a file named “1.jpg” would be renamed “[email protected]”. Done will drop a ransom note named “HELP_DECRYPT.txt” in each folder that contains encrypted files. This ransom note contains instructions on how to contact the Done Ransomware developers and pay the ransom. Done Ransomware ransom payments are made using the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. Done Ransomware will also delete any Shadow Volume Copies that are present on the victim’s computer, which makes recovery without paying the ransom very difficult.

What types of files does Done Ransomware encrypt?

Done will encrypt a variety of file types, including images, videos, documents, and more. The encryption process is very quick, and Done Ransomware will not give victims any warning before it begins. Once Done has finished encrypting a file, it will be unable to be opened or viewed.

How much does Done Ransomware ransom cost?

The Done Ransomware developers demand a ransom of 3 Bitcoin. Done Ransomware will give victims 5 days to pay the ransom, and if you do not pay the ransom within that time frame, the price will double. After 10 days, Done will delete the private key needed to decrypt victims’ files.

What should you do?

If it has infected you with Done Ransomware, we recommend that you do not pay the ransom. There is no guarantee that you will receive the decryption key even if you do pay, and there is a chance that you could be scammed out of your money. Instead, we recommend that you use a reliable anti-malware program to remove this ransomware from your computer and then attempt to recover your files using one of the methods below.

Method 1: Restore your files from a backup

If you have a backup of your files, you can restore them after you remove Done Ransomware. We recommend that you use an offline backup solution to avoid becoming infected with ransomware again.

Method 2: Use file recovery software

There are many file recovery programs on the market that can help you recover files that Done Ransomware has encrypted. However, we cannot guarantee that all of these programs will work, and some of them may even be fake.

We recommend using SalvageData data recovery software.

Method 3: Use Shadow Explorer

Shadow Explorer is a free program that can be used to access Shadow Volume Copies, which are created by Windows automatically. Shadow Volume Copies are created when you make changes to a file, and they can be used to restore files that have been deleted or encrypted. However, Done Ransomware will delete any Shadow Volume Copies that are present on the victim’s computer, so this method may not work.

Is there a public decryption tool?

At this time, there is no public decryption tool available for Done Ransomware. However, security researchers are always working on new ways to decrypt ransomware-encrypted files, so they may release a decryption tool in the future.


If you can successfully remove Done Ransomware and decrypt your files, we recommend that you take steps to avoid becoming infected again in the future. We recommend that you install a reliable anti-malware program and keep it up-to-date. You should also avoid opening email attachments from unknown senders and download programs only from trusted websites.
