    Initiative wants to help ransomware victims decrypt their files


    Remember folks, having a backup/system image is still the best defense you can have for this kind of attack.

    This initiative wants to help ransomware victims decrypt their files for free


    Europol, Dutch Police, Intel Security, and Kaspersky Lab have teamed up to launch the 'No More Ransom' scheme, in an effort to fight the threat of extortion by hackers.

    The "No More Ransom" initiative sees Europol, the Dutch National Police, Intel Security, and Kaspersky Lab join forces to create a portal that provides keys to unlocking encrypted files, as well as information on how to avoid getting infected in the first place.

    At launch, NoMoreRansom.org contains four tools for unlocking different types of ransomware, including the notorious CryptXXX, which not only encrypts files on the infected PC but also attacks any files on connected storage devices, steals cryptocurrency wallet funds, and may send sensitive data to cyberattackers, putting victims at further risk of hacking.

    Good site, thank you for the info even though I haven't fallen victim to a cryto locker yet. And because I regularly backup my data I highly doubt I'll ever become a victim. But I know a lot of people who should absolutely visit that site
