Ok, just a question: does the code work, when your pc is turned off and cut off the internet?

When you get infected and asked for ransom, your files have already been encrypted. Turning off or yourself from the Internet won’t help. Without the decryption code, all of them will be gibberish, unreadable. But yeah, you can do that and wait til the days someone catch them. I’m not too hopeful about that though.
