Are you a victim of ransomware?
The No More Ransom Project might have your remedy.
No More Ransom is a public-private partnership built on cooperation between more than 150 partners in a unified fight against ransomware.
And now, if you've managed to contract one of these four ransomware strains, you can retrieve your files for free with No More Ransom's latest decryption tools:
- FortuneCrypt ransomware
- Yatron ransomware
- WannaCryFake ransomware
- Avest ransomware
ZDNet covered more on the contributors of these free decryption keys:
"Now more free decryption tools have been added to the No More Ransom arsenal, as Kaspersky Lab has provided tools for decrypting Yatron and FortuneCrypt, while Emsisoft has released a free decryptor for WannaCryFake.
The authors of Yatron based it on Hidden Tear, a well-known form of open-source ransomware, and it encrypts victims' files with the extension .Yatron. However, researchers at Kaspersky identified mistakes in the crytopgtaphy of Yatron, allowing them to create the decryptor."
