Hello @pawsimoto,

first of all - do not panic - that ransomware is from a series of educational ransomware.
You can read more about it from the article about JohnyCryptor Ransomware.

A decryption tool is available and you can see instructions on using it
from the article Decrypt Files Encrypted by Shade .Xtbl Ransomware.

Best of luck and write back if you come across any issues, have questions or want to give feedback.

Kind Regards,
