We understand that you need your files back badly; however, we do not recommend transferring money to cyber criminals because you have no guarantees that you will receive the key or software to decrypt those files. Even though Sitaram108 Ransomware is based on the CrySiS Ransomware, and it is said that it is basically impossible to decrypt those files it touches, you should still download the free tool from the web to try to unlock files.
